I just had something similar happen, but it was the ESP, BAS, and ABS lights. It ended up being a rubbed wire in the harness towards the back of the truck. More or less causing a short and whacking out the computer.

I had this same problem, I just took it to the dealer, told them what happened and they took care of it. From what I can remember it was a simple fix, they just had to change a sensor. It was only about an hour and all under warranty.

Re: "ESP, BAS" Light came on??

They told me it was a sensor at first and changed it. A couple of days later the problem came back. Then they further diagnosed it as a rubbed wire in the harness for the ABS, BAS, and ESP. They said it was towards the back, when I first picked up and that it probably happened during the build. I have to take the truck in on Friday and I will get the exact location of the rub.

By the way its an 07 with a Jan/Feb build date.

Im about to take my GC for its third visit for service of ABS / BAS & Traction Control, both light came on full time. At first it was an intermitent problem, if I hit a bump on the road you could see the light flick on. The dealer did a reprogram of the ABS control module on the 1st and 2nd visit for ABS service when the warning light stayed on permanently, they solved the problem for just a couple of miles away from the dealer.
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!!!!
