gr8fulKID I know this may not help, but I get those 3 lights on everytime im driving through snow. Im guessing it has to be something with the wheel sensors getting wet or the traction on the snow.

Check the harness going to each sensor for damage and a tight connection.

kjeeper10 FYI. We broke a sensor wire doing balljoints. All 3 lights were on.

Drove a hell of alot better too

Dick Blonov FWIW, here's my train of thought. You had an alignment done, then you have this problem. Chances are if something got damaged, it's in the front and whoever did your alignment might be responsible. Might not be the sensor; could be the wire loom leading to the sensor. As far as I know, the diagnostic codes only differentiate left/right (not only on the JK, on many Chrysler vehicles).

U1417 - Implausible Left Wheel Distance Signal Received
U1418 - Implausible Right Wheel Distance Signal

Here's a link.

And a similar case here.

lovemyjk I agree. Now I disconnected the battery and I am now getting a U1418 code!!

lovemyjk HI,

Thanks for your suggestion. I pulled the battery for about 2 hours and did a self test in order to retrieve the codes and got U1418 which I looked up and came up with this "IMPLAUSIBLE RIGHT WHEEL DISTANCE SIGNAL"? Has anyone had such a problem. Is this code front or back?

JPi4.0 Is your steering wheel centered if its not the lights will come on.
Mine is extremely sensitive to the steering wheel being center

SilverSport Strange this happened immediately after the alignment.

bbtj That happened to me and turned out to be a short in wiring, causing the sensor to go bad.

SilverSport Since you already replaced one sensor, have the garage read the code(s) again and tell us what they are.

kjeeper10 Broken sensor wire or defective wheel sensor itself.
$15 fix

ESP, ABS and Traction Control lights

All of the three lights are staying on. I got a wheel alignment on Wednesday afternoon and on thursday morning, the three lights were on. Went back to he garage and their machine read that rear right abs sensor had failed. Bought one from the dealer and replaced it. I then drove the car and the lights stayed on. I also disconnected the battery for 10mins and the lights were still on. I drove the car and still.... No luck!!!!!!

Any suggestions.
