This just happened to me after 2yrs & 8200miles. I haven't got the latest brake recall/flash done yet. The lights went off after just a few yrds. Has anyone figured this out yet?

any update on this?

my '06 with around 8k miles on it (yes it doesn't get driven much) was parked in really bad rain for a few days, and when i took it out for a drive last night, for the first 1-2 miles, it felt like the ABS was buzzing slightly every time i'd apply the brake, even from very low speeds. after a few minutes, the BAS and ESP lights came on, and so did the "service 4WD system" light.

the ABS buzzing also stopped right then.

parked it, and after waiting a half hour, set off again. all error messages and lights were gone, but the brake pedal still felt like ABS was engaging even from low speeds. much worse, it felt as if one of the front wheels would suddenly brake on its own, then release!

after reading thru threads here on the dreaded "service 4WD system" indicator, i thought my transfer case was f*cked. but now i'm not too sure, given the other stuff i've read...

i'm out of warranty, someone have any ideas? it seems to me that rust or dirt from being parked out in really really bad rain could have messed up a wheel speed/ABS sensor?

Mine came on a few time as well and would not turn OFF. So I took it into the dealer and they replaced a sensor and has not been back for months. I also did not notice anything else that was weird except for the ESP BAS light that kept coming on. Take it into the dealer when you get a chance.

thanks man! i'm kinda anal when it comes to my cars-- can't sleep knowing that there's a problem!

how much did the sensor cost? dealer here charges an arm and a leg. how does $1,000 for one front wheel grab you? (we don't have a choice here, as i live in the Philippines)

I hear you bro! I am the same way with my Beast. Yeah they told me I had to bent wheels and I ended up taking them to a fix that specializes in fixing wheels. So lucky for me I did not have to buy to brand new wheels. So I would take them to a place that fixes wheels outthere. Also as far as the cost I believe it siad it was no more than 300 dollars to fix it, but it was under warranty. Good luck bro!

it was a bad wheel speed sensor. just got the truck back from the dealer, and on the way home, no more problems!

let's hope it stays that way.

thanks!

I know this is an old thread but yesterday my ESP and traction control light came on for no aparent reason on my 08 GC SRT8. I was driving down the highway, lane changed, and it suddenly came on. If I push the ESP button the traction control light (skidding car) will turn off but the ESP light stays on constantly. Any updates from anyone????

My trucks done it twice now, after a key turn or two it goes away. Check for debris around the abs sensors

Check engine light and 4wheel service light both on!!

i have an 06 Gcsrt8. My wife was doing errands this past weekend when the check engine light came on. Then after an hr or so the 4wheel service light turned on also. i know i need to change the TC fluid asap. i jumped on the forum and tried the cheapest fix i could find. So i disconnected the battery for about 15 min as suggested then reconnected it and started it again. Then i checked and all the error codes where gone!!! Maybe the Cpu just needed to be reset. Thank God!!! lol..

All you did was clear the CEL code. If there really is a problem, the lights will come back on. Next time find out what codes are showing first, then clear them. That way you have an idea whats going on, and can determine weather you need to take it in for service right away or not. Those lights don't come on together by accident, you may still have a serious problem with the jeep.
