Hit a small bump last night and they turned on. Turned jeep off then on again and they went away. Leaving my destination i hit the littlest of bumps and they turned back on and wont turn off now. Any idea? No CEL and the esp light isnt on.

Is your steering off center? Would also check all the bolts on the steering components.

Had my lights come on when I broke the steering stabilizer & knocked the steering off center once while wheeling.

Steering wheel is straight, tires have the right psi for the tpms atleast. I went trail riding and had a lot of clay caked on, once i washed it all off the next morning my front brakes were making noise. I believe i might have damaged one but no CEL and the esp light (bottom left light) is not on

It's might be your wheel speed sensor. I've had this happen twice and both times it's been a bad sensor.

I just replaced rear axle shafts today & damaged a speed/ABS sensor connector. I now have the same lights on on the dash.

Looks like it is your speed sensors itself or the connector like mine.
A connector is on order.

How many miles on the Jeep? Bad wheel bearing was causing mine to be lit up.

Hopefully this works. Pita to get an image shared from your phone on this site. The attachment limit is pathetic lol
does no one else use imgur ?
If you simply make your images private - viewable by link only - when you upload them there ( imgur.com ) and then copy the Direct Link to paste within the little " image" add toolbar button up there , you can post images from your phone, pc,iPad ,wherever to your hearts content .
Everyone makes it far more difficult than it need be!

Maybe I'll do a bloody writeup ...

[so, you took wheels off and cleaned this heavy clay out from between dust shields and the rotors as well as from within the brake piston and inside flanges of your wheels, right? You get that additional weight or dried mud clogging up these parts and your gonna have wonky anti skid and or etc activation. Mud really has to be thoroughly cleaned out of these computer sensitive JKs brakes or it can cause this behavior.

For all the world it sounds like your piston cups are full of mud or one is seized from still having dried,heated clay ( hey, the ingredients of a brick! Hmmmm) You will be surprised at where you'll find huge,dried clumps of balance distorting mud behind your wheels. Ask me how I know this and illl throw in a hatred of mud for free ...:jeep2:

A new connector fixed the issue. Part # CRO5183448AA is what I needed.
