Steering wheel straight?? Also re torque your track bar with all 4 wheels on the ground at ride height and level. Something is not straight, or at least the computer dont think it is. Its Not going to hurt to check your control arm bolts while your at it. If you wheel you should check everything after every trip anyways.

I have the exact same issue with my Jeep. Dealership thought it might be an ABS sensor which was replaced under warranty. They want me to drop it off for a day to troubleshoot, but I'm waiting on some recall parts first.

I've got the same thing. Pretty sure it's an abs sensor but there is no way to know which one. I bought one for the rear is different than the front. I bought one for the front on a hunch that they are more likely to go out. I just need to find the time to put it in. Also, your cruise probably won't work until you get it fixed.

Steps:

1. What suspension components did you install?

2. Center your front axle using an adjustable trackbar. Torque this bolt on the ground and a min of 125 FT LBS.

3. Go 65 MPH's on a flat highway and hold your steering wheel straight, if your jeep goes straight skip step 3, if your jeep doesn't drive straight, come to a stop, and adjust your steering wheel at the draglink to center your steering wheel, 2 minute job, any quarter turn off on the steering wheel will throw your lights off.

4. Should be all ready to go.

Adjust the drag link to center the steering wheel, takes 5 minutes and will likely end your issues.

Did your dash look like this?


If so check the wiring harness that connects to each wheel. I think it is called the ABS Speed sensor. I damage the one for my passenger rear wheel while wheelin on Saturday. The part cost about $19. At first it looked ok, but when I touched the plug it it fell right off. The pins on the wheel side of the connector broke off.

On my passenger side rear tire it was located towards the front. Other then the brake line, it is the only wires that go to the wheel. If you still dont see it let me know and I will get some pictures for you.

Usually that 17 is in the mid to upper 18 range. It was in the low 14's from wheeling on Sat.

Did you change yours yourself? How big of a PITA is it? From what I understand, you have to pull the rotor and hub off.

Aside from the obvious, steering wheel centered, etc. you need to be sure that the axles are centered under the vehicle. If they're not, in certain suspension movement situations the system may think there's a fault and will trigger the light(s). A club member with a TF 3" system & stock arms & track bars had that same issue, plus a drift to the left. When I checked it he had the front axle centered well, but the rear was off about 3/8s to 1/2 an inch to one side. We corrected it by dropping the bar at the rear axle side bracket to the lowest hole. Centered it nearly perfectly and matched the drop of the bar to nearly the same degree as the front. Fixed, no more pull, no more lights issues.

This light started coming one once new tires were installed. Does anyone know if that has something to do with it? They want to charge me $120 at the dealer just to check the light

My abs and traction control light come on when I turn my steering wheel to the left and my cruise control will not work when the lights are on. Usually when I straighten the wheel and drive a little ways it goes back off. Is this something I can fix myself or will I need to take it in?
