Bad wheel speed sensor is my first guess.

Oh, and welcome to the forum.

Lots of things can make that happen. Like Hooligan said, bad sensor, could also be the wires that lead to the sensor, check and make sure they are in good shape. There are multiple things, have you been doing any offroading or flexing with the jeep that might have led up to this? Type the key words in the search engine on the sight, you'll find this is a pretty common problem and has multiple reasons and solutions. Good luck to ya!

I got this same scenario when the sensor wire got pulled from it's clip and eventually rubbed enough that it exposed the wires and cause the "christmas tree" to light up so it could be from something that you did earlier and showed up later. Best to just keep checking all around.

Does your dash look like this??



I broke my passenger side rear speed sensors while wheeling. It cost less then $10 to get fixed. The sensor is located on the inside of the wheel towards the front. From under the Jeep it is at about 9:00. Should be the only wiring going to the wheel/tire.

Most likely a bad sensor or broken wire leading to a sensor. Rears are easy to replace, fronts not so much. Dont get me wrong the fronts arent hard to replace but more time consuming. Unfortunately if its a sensor this is no way that I know of to troubleshoot which one is bad other then keep swapping to the lights go out.... and by the way our lights dodnt go out until driven 50 feet or so.

Take it to an Auto Zone. They had a code reader that reads ABS lights. Mine came up left rear speed sensor.

Here, Advance Auto's reader only does CEL codes. Carquest didn't have a reader. If you don't have an Auto Zone, call around. Most parts places have code readers they will let yo take out to the parking lot and pull your codes. Make sure you ask if it reads ABS codes. Cost....FREE.

If you decide to just start swapping parts until the lights go out, the front and the rear sensors are different.

Try this to get a code:

Turn your key from Off to On 3 times very quickly. (Don't actually start the Jeep, just turn the key until the dash lights turn on)
This key trick should display the current fault codes and then will say "DONE" when its finished. The codes will show up in the odometer.

I have the same dash lights lit up as you. I just found out about doing this with the key yesterday.

Mine read U1417 - Implausible Left Wheel Distance Signal Received (whatever that means), Still doesn't say front or rear, but at least I know which side to troubleshoot.

My dash looks similar to this. just dont have the ABS light on so my sensors are likely good. also I can turn the traction control on with the switch and light goes out.

Last time I was out offroading I hit something and steering wheel was off center. well I checked my alignment and the toe is at 0. maybe not ideal but it is within spec so I just centered the steering wheel. light is not out yet so hopefully it will go out soon. anything else I can do?

I had to ESP/BAS and sliding lights on. I hit something the other day and slightly bent my drag arm. The steering wheel was off center, the computer thought the Jeep was sliding or something. Re-centered the steering wheel following the instruction in another thread and low and behold the lights went out after about 10 miles.

I also re centered my steering wheel but the ESP BAS light still did not turn off. and my Jeep did the same thing where it thought it was sliding I have a feeling that my drag arm is bent but im not certain; how could you tell? How did you fix yours?

Centering the steering wheel is tricky. If its off just a little, the lights will come on. I had mine done on an alignment rack and I still had the lights come on about once a month. I got tired of it so I pulled out my AEV ProCal module which will tell you when the wheel is centered, not by how it "looks" but by how the Jeep thinks it is. But for that to work, the wheels have to be pointed straight ahead or the whole excercise is pointless. To accomplish that I used a long piece of mason's string and strectched a line thru the center of my rear wheel and thru the center of the front wheel. Then I turned the steering wheel until the front tires where pointed in the same direction as the rears, or straight ahead. Then I proceeded to loosen the adjuster on the drag link and followed the ProCal instructions. Worked like a champ. No more lights.

interresting. I didnt have much difficulty to get mine straight enoungh to get the lights out. it did take a few drives, it just did not happen right away. I think you have to hit certain speeds and keep the wheel straight for the computer to learn that it is straight and your not moving the wheel much to what it considers off center before it clears its light. my theory though.

ESP BAS

I have the same issue with the ESP BAS and swerving car symbol. Just had the clock spring replaced last week because of the same issue. From a visual inspection, it also looks like bad wiring on my front left wheel speed sensor. Is there any danger in driving around town like this for a few days before I can fix it?

No danger. Just the traction control, anti-roll mitigation, abs, etc. won't be working. You have to use your head and not depend on electronics to safe your ass. Rofl

This just happened to mine on the ride home tonight. I installed my RK 2.5 max flex kit and was getting the weird anti skid thing happening when going around corners. I think it just gave up and decided to throw my ESP bad light on. Everything is awesome after the lift, just that the steering wheel is at 2 o'clock instead of 12 when going straight. Will an alignment fix this?

First suggestion, try reading through the whole thread, there are already tips given there (e.g. using Code reader for ABS codes)
