Traction control problems

I have a 2017 jku 4"lift ..changed computer when I installed superchip... my traction control light goes in and off when going in curves or come to a quick stop or even when I hit a dip in the highway at a high speed...I feel a grinding feeling in my steering and my brakes... the abs light was coming on to but the wheel sensor cleared that up...I'm stumped! Thanks in advance

I had a similar issue and found my track bar bolt was loose. If your steering wheel isn't properly centered it will lead to this as well.

When the lift was installed did you flex it out an make sure you did not have any wires or break lines that were stressed?

Check and make sure both axles are centered properly. An off-center axle (relative to the other axle) will cause wheels to turn at different speeds on turns.

In searching I found this post that maybe you can help me. My 2018 has had brake issues since hitting 10000 miles. First it was from a stop I would get the traction control to light up even on dry pavement. The other day the traction control turn itself off. Drove about 10 miles home with the light telling me it was off. Turned the jeep off then back on the light went out. Any ideas as to why the traction control would just turn off? ABS light has never lit. Though I have heard it engaging when slowing to turn in my drive in the snow. Would like some ideas before I have to call the stealership. Having my guy look at it next week while doing state inspection. UGH

Mine was the trackbar. Had a similar experience. Change to 9/16" grade 8 bolts, sae washers, and nuts. Make sure they are torqued to 125lbs.

Thanks for the input. Guess we will see what the inspection on Monday comes up with. Then since I am under warranty...to the stealership we may go...UGH. Nothing worse then that...I can almost hear it now....can not duplicate. They already looked at this problem once....nothing wrong. Yeah for me...LOL.

Is your steering wheel centered? That could cause similar symptoms if not.
