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.

How do you spell JEEP ?

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

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

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

Strange this happened immediately after the alignment.

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

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?

lovemyjk 01-14-2013 02:17 PM

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

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.

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

Drove a hell of alot better too :D

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

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.

I am having an issue where the 3 lights randomly blink on and off (once) and I get the warning sound. My left rear blinker keeps going from working to not as well. I have a 2013 Wrangler. Jeep is still under warranty but I can't leave it at the dealer during the week. Should I be concerned if I have to wait until Saturday (it is Monday now) to bring it in? A few weeks ago they replaced a spring and sensor in the steering column that caused all my interior and exterior lights to stop working....

As stupid as it sounds, give the horn button a smack, until the horn sounds. Sounds like they replaced the clock spring and smacking the horn button sometimes fixes the problem with it.
