Sorry new member repost from the general thread. Hello everyone. I have a 2013 Limited 5.7. I just replaced the control arms and some bushings as well as put on a 2" leveling kit on. Now all of my suspension related lights are illuminated on the dash. Drove it for a but thinking the sensors needed to reset. No dice everything is still on. Not sure if a coincidence but today it felt like it was stuck in 4 low. Turned it off then back on and it seemed to shift normally. Any ideas? Thanks guys!

Not sure I see suspension lights but I'm guessing you may have damaged a wheel speed sensor. You'll ultimately need the codes to determine what issue it's reporting.

There is a wheel speed sensor as mentioned above, in each side. They bolt into the steering knuckle/hub and have a wire that runs around the strut and onto the body. If the wire or sensor got damaged, it would trigger every light associated with traction control and ABS, since the vehicle can’t accurately read the wheel speed. Check for those sensors, inspect their wires, make sure you didn’t unplug one, and go from there. I’ll be doing a lift on my Jeep tomorrow, so if you need any pics, I could probably get some tomorrow.

That would be great! Thanks!

You need to leave the terminals off long enough for the computer to completely drain any residual power out could be 1/2 hour or longer. Try it for 20 mins if it still the same try it a little longer. Think about resetting you cable router same principle, almost, Good luck,

Be sure and check the wires for damage too. I've had wires break inside the connectors right at the end of where they are crimped to the terminals.

Do you still have the same code after the fix? Might not have been the fix you needed.
