Angry ESP/BAS Warning Light PLUS ESP/TCS indicator

Alright, what the h#% is going on. Both of these "warning" indicators are on in my '08JKU. Called the dealership and of course I am bringing it in to have it "looked at" but I wanted to ask the members of the forum is anyone else has experienced this situation, how was it fixedand for how much. My vehicle has 26000 miles on it and is used as a daily driver.
Thanks in advance for any info.

This is a common problem after a lift or adding a trackbar. The fix is usually re-centering the steering wheel. Is your centered, or is it a little bit off?

No lift, it's a stock vehicle. Steering seems fine.

Mine did the same, diagnostics showed intermittent faults throwing up from the steering wheel position sensor. New one ordered under warranty.

My '07 did it frequently. Unfortunately, it never left any codes to be read in the system so it drove the service guys nuts. Naturally it would never do it when I took it in for service. On mine, if I just continued to drive it with the lights on, they would go off by themselves and then reoccur in a month or two. Drove me crazy but I never got it successfully repaired. When I traded it in, it still had that gremlin in the system.

My 09 had this same problem. The codes did come up okay and they installed a new sensor under the center consel on the floor board. While I waited for the part to come in, I was told that it would not cause any problem and was still safe to drive. It's part of the anti-roll, anti-skid thing and the tech said Jeeps have run for years without it.

They initially thought it was the "clockspring" in the steering wheel but turned out to be the other sensor. Since it was replaced, have not had any problem and that has been many miles ago. Good luck!!1

My 07 has done it a few times. it was raining every time it has happened but it doesn't happen every time it rains.

Now that I think about it, hasn't happened in a month or so.
