skitzo the strange part is you can actually feel the modulation in the pedal.

Bigdawg0114 I had a rear wheel speed sensor that went bad which causes the ABS, traction control, and ESP/BAS lights all to activate since all three systems run off of individual wheel speed monitoring. It only ran me $22 at the dealership for a new one & about 5 min to install.

That being said, I don't think your issue is a speed sensor, but more likely to be related to front end alignment and/or track bar issue.

skitzo I know I can do some tweeking to the lift I have so I am not worried at all. Its not a great lift but I got the Jeep at a good price at the dealer so I took it. I mean its not a "terra lift" but for what the wife will use it for is fine. besides some like sprint boosters and some dont right?

Ah ah. So you bought a PO'd jeep that had a crappy lift thrown on

That sucks..

Don't pay anybody. Research some and do the work yourself. Spend some time on here. Read and ask questions.

Find out what you have, and what you may or do need. Post a new thread If you need any help/have questions.

These guys and a few gals know their jeeps :P

Good luck and welcome

Center you steering wheel the best you can and look at the tires from the front.
See if there pointing straight forward.

If your steering is not centered the ECU thinks your in a slide or loosing traction.

Does the jeep track strait on the highway if you let go of the wheel?

Yes it is.

Jeep cuts power/brakes when ESP is activated. Aka drives like shit

You know how to recenter the steering?
Very easy

Yes, please! If the light stays on with the stock tires, it is most likely a damaged wheels sensor. Go back to the dealer with the stock tires on.

SilverBling You wld have thought as many time I took to dealership they wld have checked that but prolly not. I guess my next option is to put my stock wheels/tires back on and see. Good thing I have held on to them.

kjeeper10 Wondering if you have a faulty wheel sensor?

Help-Procal

So I posted several months ago about my traction control light randomly coming on after I switch to different tires/wheels on my 2011 wrangler unlimited. I purchased the Procal to change tire size and thought this wld solve my problem...well it hasn't! I have messed and messed with different setting of tires size and still continue to get same results. Help!!!
