Heston22 When I first got my lift kit. Mine was steady on all the time, found out that it was due to my steering not being centered. I have 35,s and some times I notice the abs and traction kicking i'n slowing at lights and going around turns. If it trips for a long enough time iv noticed the lights staying on! I'n the rain a lot of the time I just turn off the traction control. All that fancy electric stuff i'n the jeep some times causes a bad day! If I could remove all that I'd be i'n a better mood! My problem know is my steering box needs to be adjusted I got play i'n my steering wheel. :-(

greese Brand new tires. Maybe 1000 miles on them. Bridgestone Duelers. Manual indicates all three lights coming on along with the audible chime was a fault. Just seems weird that it is only in the rain.

Correct. Are your tires in good shape, you could be hydroplanning.

Rain and ABS

A couple weeks ago I drove my 07JK four hours to Atlanta in the rain. Halfway through the trip, the ABS light, ESP/BAS light, and the traction control light came on. And stayed on through a few stops for lunch etc, when restarting.

Then they all went off at some point and stayed off since.

Today, they all came back on while driving down the street locally. The only thing in common is that it is raining today and it was raining the first time. When I noticed they were off in Atlanta, I was out of the rain and on dry roads. So maybe something with rain? Which is unfortunately when would expect to need all that the most.

Anyone else seen anything similar happen on their Jeep?
