Question about traction control

Few weeks ago I was heading back from Socal to Norcal I was going through the grapevine a very hilly area on I5. I noticed about half way through the grapevine that my traction control warning light came on. I assume that means my traction control turned off or something. So I pulled over when got through the grapevine I shut the Jeep off turned her back on all was fine no more light the rest of the trip. My question is I had the adaptive cruise control on when going up and down some pretty steep hills would that have possibly caused the traction control to have a problem or turn it off? I haven't seen the light since.

interesting. I have a 5.7 also 2k14.. on a recent trip to upstate NY - lots of hills. I had my traction light come on and stay on - also - it disabled adaptive cruise - and - I got a message to service 4 wheel drive system. The light and message have not gone away - 3 weeks later (ive been on vacation).. I took it to teh dealer last week and they said I lost the 4x4 module - and had to order the part. They are installing tomorrow. I know your problem doesnt seem to be the same - but - the common thing is the hilly terrain and throwing the light...

Re: Question about traction control

well the 4x4 module did not fix it - by the way - for your information that module is under the backseat...

They dont know what my problem is - grounds are good ......

Hi Matt. Yes they.fixed it. Was a 4x4 motor assembly. Jeep had to diagnose. Dealer could not. All lights resolved when they replaced the motor... good luck
