    I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the same thing happened to me. I was backing out of my driveway and slid on the ice. Both the ABS and brake light came on together and won't go off. I don't really think there is a problem with the braking system but don't want to drive it until I'm sure. Did the battery disconnect work for anybody else?

You can do that only will get fix if there is no actual problems with the hydraulic system sounds like a pressure diffrential valve problem but make sure sometime the radio might ask for factory code after the battery is disconnect.
good luck hope this help.

Abs light on


You need to have the codes scanned to see where the problem lies. It could be as simple as dirt in a sensor, an unplugged sensor, or something more expensive like an ABS pump or control module. If you don't have a scanner, many auto parts stores will scan your codes.

Your brakes will still function but you may not have ABS kick in when braking.

2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo odometer turns off check gauges light, brake light, abs light, turn on and the motor stays running


My guess would be a short or bad connection inside the cluster. Some Chrysler products have problems with connections between the dash and body computer.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the brake light is staying on when vehicle is in park...why?


are we talking about the rear tail brake lights or the light on the dash. if dash light possible emergency brake slightly applied or low brake pressure in brake system or low brake fluid in reservoir. Rear brake lights ? check the brake switch under dash as it may have come mis adjusted for proper on/off activation

Abs light stays on in my 97 jeep grand cherokee


The light means there is a problem with the abs pump or one of the sensors for the abs system. Your regular brakes will function normally but while the light is on you have no antilock braking. Abs systems can be fairly complicated, it may be best to take the truck to a reputable repair shop.

I have a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the ABS light constantly stays on. Had breaks done a year ago. any solutions?


Brake work has nothing to do with a check light
or ABS light on dash
You have an ABS System Malfuntion or failure
Retrieve the code,diagnose,and repair

Wheel Speed Sensors are common item to fail

You should have had this taken care of a long
time ago, as soon as the light came on

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee The ABS light comes on and stays on. What does this mean?


You may have a faulty sensor, most cases a wheel speed sensor, the light is on warning you that you do not have abs basically your car will stop like an old 70's model car before abs. abs atands for anti lock brakes, it keeps your brakes from locking up under extreme braking.

1994 jeep grand cherokee dash lights come on when brakes are applied. Altenators is charching and battery and teminals are good checked ground from battery to motor its good where do i go from hetre


What dash lights come on? if its the brake or ABS lights that means your brake pads need to be changed, in some brake pads there is a sensor that also has to be replaced if you have gone too far into the rotor.

How do i find the brake light fuse on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee? fuse 19 under the dashboard is antilock brakes. Is that the correct fuse?


That's for the abs system only, not the brake lights. All brake lights are not working? Check the brake light switch (aka stop light switch), which is attached to the upper brake pedal, and has a wire attached to it. If it's shot, the brake lights won't work. If this is not the problem, let me know so I can help further.
