ABS/Stability Control service notice...

So I'm driving down the road. I look down and the ABS light is on as well as the Stability control "off" light. I pressed the Stability control button and nothing would happen.

In the EVIC messages folder it said "service abs system."

So I say "crap" and I park at the store and go in with my wife, not telling her because if she knew she'd say "I TOLD you that jeeps were unreliable and we should have gotten another Honda."

Got back in the truck after a half hour and there's no light. Trip to work and no light either.

Anyone heard of this and have a story with a good ending?

So it's not a "thing" then.

A jeep thing
Seriously though i had the oil pressure light come one go off come on go off
After leaving it for a few days booked it in to the dealer drove it in no issue
Dealer said there was no indication in the computer that the light was ever activated
So just a jeep thing

Re: ABS/Stability Control service notice...

A similar thing happened to my early build 2014 Limited (while driving it off the dealerships lot!). Those lights came on, then would go off after a while, then would come back on again.

The dealership eventually replaced a module, and it never happened again.

So major systems just deciding not to work intermittently is a Jeep thing? I'm not sure about that, man.

Uh, oh. My brakes are out. Ah, don't worry. It's a Jeep thing.

Read The Fine TSBs...
Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2011-2016 Grand Cherokee Service Bulletins and Recalls

What is build date on yours? Theres a recall out, but you should have gotten a letter for one cause, which is a flash plus tightening up the ground connection.

Another one for crappy oil pressure sensors, where those are a Jeep tradition.

If the light stays out it might be worth having the dealer see if any codes were set next time you're in for an oil change or something. If it starts coming on regularly take it to the dealer.

Re: ABS/Stability Control service notice...

Fwiw an abs fault does not mean your brakes are out! Just that they may lock up under extremely hard braking or skidding on poor traction.

Re: ABS/Stability Control service notice...

It's probably an electronic problem as opposed to a mechanical problem
