My dash ABS light is flickering... and I don't have ABS

So I just noticed today that my ABS light was flickering. I've never seen the light before since I don't have ABS.

Any ideas as to why this might be happening?

thanks

have you recently done any gauge modifications, like adding LEDs?

The brake light would come on on my Subaru if the fluid was low. Im not sure if a Jeep has the same kind of sensor on it, but its worth a check.

I guess it never hurts to check my fluids, but the thing is the light wasn't on, it was just flickering... and then it stopped

I'm not at all worried about it, just curious

Really the only thing that I can think of that has changed that could possibly have an effect is this... I recently installed windshield lights, and removed the cowl to do so. To put the cowl back on, I pulled off the weather stripping at the front of the cowl, but put it back on. It is possible that it isn't on properly and some water dripped down onto some wires or the computer... I say this because it happened during the first real rain we had since I installed the lights
