New to JKU - Problem w/ ESP, BAS, and Traction Control

Just bought a used 2009 Wrangler Unlimited X last week with 92000 miles. Seems to be in really good shape and have had several people test drive since purchase and all say it runs well as I think too. Today I brought it back to the place I bought it which is a pretty big used car dealer in the Nashua, NH area to adjust the emergency brake which they did no questions asked. About 10 miles down the highway later, the ESP, BAS, and Traction Control lights all turned on for no reason and stayed that way. I called and brought it back to the dealer where they cleared the code and "tested" it and said it seemed to be a malfunction but everything was now working fine. They said to drive it and let them know if it came back on. Of course, it came back on a few miles after them looking again. They are going to have it in the shop Monday to "fix" the issue (so they say) which they said should only take a few hours. What could cause this problem? Something to do with adjusting the emergency brake? A little disappointed because I really love the jeep but have been back to the dealer one too many times for my liking in the week since I bought it. Hoping Monday they fix it and can leave happy in my new toy!

Is the steering wheel centered when you're driving in a straight line?

It is turned a little to the right but not by a lot. The dealer I got it from is going to take a look at it Monday.

Aha! I've read stories on here where similar things have happened to others and the steering wheel being slightly off-center was the culprit. Hopefully, that's all it is.

yea, I did end up reading that on here as well. I'm hoping so but luckily they are glowing to fix it. I also got a warranty on the jeep so either way I'll make sure it gets fixed! Thanks again

I think they damaged/disconnected one of the rear wheel speed sensors. You have to pull everything apart since the parking brake is inside the hub of the rear rotor.

Got under it today and straightened out the wheel, light turned right off. Thanks again!
