Same with me.
The dealer ordered a new rear sensor and it will take 5 min. to install.
The damn sensor is back ordered and won't be available for a week or so.

Hope it IS the sensor and not rubbed wires.

"ESP, BAS" Light came on??

Every time the dealer re program the control module the light came on after an average of 19 to 20 miles currently Im headed for my fourth visit to the dealer they now say its the ABS contol module, they do not have it in stock, Im waiting for it, hope it solves the ESP, BAS & TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT problem.

Does anyone have any idea what else could be causing the problem or where to look for potential problem spots of GC SRT8 ABS system!!!!
They just ordered me a new rear wheel sensor.
Obviously, this may NOT fix the problem.
What is a pain, when all this goes out, the cruise control, GPS, etc. DON'T work!

After fourth visit, Finally problem solved with ESP, BAS & Traction Control with a new control module and programing, problem persisted intermitently and was solved by a Chrysler engineer visiting the service center. Lucky me!! All needed to be done was wheel and steering wheel alinement, there a position sensor on the steering wheel if its not centered correcty it will trigger the light's and lock the tires to make necesary the corrections if turning & breaking.

chrysler (jeep) electrical

i can tell you from my experiences with jeeps that the electrical, everything from the front on back wiring and all, has always been an issue. the more ya play with things (i.e. PCM, stereo etc) the higher the chances of having weird random lights flashing on the cluster. not to mention i have heard these srt GC's in particular are very sensitive (must be female PCM's in these things. lol)

Mine too...

My "ESP BAS" light just started intermittently lighting this morning after only 3,000 miles on my '08. Scheduled an appointment next Monday. Bummer.

My ESP BAS lights just came on. '07 with less than 1500 miles. I've had the G40 recall done (once). I was coming to a stop on a light incline a few days ago and damn if I didn't feel the ABS buzz just a little during the stop. My guess is that it's related, and that a funky control module is the problem and needs replacing.

Dealership time next week, I'll post my results.

Took it to the dealer and they apparently needed to flash an update to the transmission program, although they didn't give a version # on the work order. I just drove it home and so far so good. Time will tell.
