WK1 Troubleshooting / Problems Discussion / Dealer ServiceIf you are having some problems with your Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and need assistance in troubleshooting and diagnosing the problem, this is the proper place to discuss it. Were you treated fairly or poorly at a dealer? Warranty issues? Let us know.
I was driving to work in my 06 today (light rain) and had the same thing happen. I drove up a bumpy little hill near work and every symbol on the dash lit up and then turned off after a few seconds leaving just the traction control symbol and the ESP/BAS still illuminated. Parked it and shut it off...turned it immediately back on out of curiousity and it was gone. I really hate to take it back to the dealer since its 2 hours away...ugh
i just started to have this problem as well. it has happened to me about 3 times since thanksgiving. im going to the dealer on monday. I talked to my service adviser on the phone and she said normally its just a wheel speed sensor. after reading this thread it sounds like there is still not clear fix for it so we will see i guess. i checked for any codes with the trinity and it says there are none.
I have had this problem over 50 times. It used to happen every time I went WOT with my cutouts open. The instant it happened (while I am flying down the highway with the pedal to the metal) my jeep would swerve sideways aggressively. I almost ran off the road at over 100 mph one time... Ever since then I never raced with my cutouts open again, until I got it fixed.
The solution for me was 2 things.
1. Attached turn-down tips onto my cutouts to direct the exhaust flow out the side.
2. Replaced a wheel speed sensor... I found out that a wheel sensor had a hairline crack going down the side of it. Im thinking, hot exhaust gasses blowing on that broken wheel sensor made my awd system go nuts.

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????
Mine did that on Saturday while we were driving. Later on that evening the lights just went off by themself.
2012 Ford Raptor - Oxford White, SCT Tuner, 5-star tuned.
Sold: 2008 Jeep SRT8. Bwoody intake, Diablo Johan tuned.
my problem occured right after I put on the predator 93 octane cai tune. does anyone think the predator could be the culprit?
Nothing to do with the Predator tune as my 300C SRT8 has had the ESP BAS light come on intermittently... now it looks like it is stuck on after the Cam Position Sensor went bad. (Replaced the CPS, but the ESP BAS light is still on.)
Does anyone know if there is a wheel speed sensor on each corner? I hate all the local dealerships here and have had them mis-diagnose issues in the past.
