Need Help: Many Yelllow Lights are ON

The other day I started my 2007 Jeep and the following yellow lights came on:

-ABS
-ESP

I haven't been on any roads other than regular street driving-Ever

How do I get these lights to turn off? What does it mean? My brakes seem fine and my Jeep is less than 2 yrs old and only 26,000 on it.

Any ideas how to get hese lights off?

HELP!

Salt on the wheel sensors? Wash it and reboot?
If that doesn't fix it, show the dealer...

Yep ,I even made service apt before mine went off. They said it happens sometimes ,not to worry to much about it unless it stays on. More sensors,,,,,Just something else to go wrong.

Unhook the battery, turn the key to on to discharge the capacitors, turn key to off, rehook battery. Should only take one cycle. Remember your radio presets...
Salt spray is an evil substance and the residue can be conductive enough to give all sorts of gremlins.

Like they said though, could be a brainfart and it will reset itself eventually. Or that abs sensors might be activating your brakes slightly, wearing out your brakepads, warping your rotors, boiling your brake fluid...
As a former fleet manager, I've seen two cars burst into flame after the same symptoms. The brakes got so hot that the brake fluid vaporized and burned. Total loss of both cars.
