If you are "stuck in the Mountains", then it would be relatively dangerous to go back down if the vehicle's computer senses any malfunction in the braking system. Even your emergency brakes are also giving a warning. Since your vehicle is experiencing multiple malfunctions, either the sensors are reading wrong inputs, there is something really big wrong with the car or the car's computer is having a glitch. If even after performing the below listed steps and the warnings are still there and/or you are not comfortable with the brakes, then it perhaps would be wise to seek qualified professional assistance and consider alternative ways of going back down.

In most cars, the on board computer could be reset by removing the negative terminal of the battery. Some requires that this be done with the ignition turned ON but engine not running. Likewise, there are some car stereos that will go into protective mode (security lock) when the battery terminals are removed and would require a "code".

On the brake, pls look under your vehicle, there could be sensors that were disconnected. For the brakes, they would normally be at the back of each wheel. Additonally, parking brake lights would also come on if the brake fluid level is below minimum or if the brake pads have reached a pre-determined level of thickness (or thinness in this case).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Replace the speed sensor on the trans that will cause exactly what you describe is happening.

SOURCE: 2002 sequioa sudden stall

Often when the battery is disconnected or replaced the computer will lose it's learned idle settings. You could try letting the engine idle in park until the engine temperature comes up to normal and leave it like that for a few minutes, then put the Air con on and let it idle again for a few minutes, then switch the air con off and put it into drive. If it does not stall, let it idle in drive for 2 minutes or so, and then do the same with the Air con on. This should relearn the base idle settings and stop it from stalling on you. Before you carry out this procedure you should make sure that when you replaced the battery you didn't remove any other plugs or knocked anything that may be causing the fault. If you try this procedure and it still stall when you select drive, you will need to get a Mechanic to check the vehicle over.

Hope this helps,

I had the same problem which was diagnosed incorrectly 3 times
Could be one of 2 things you may want to check
Have a tech read your codes
Have the ABS Control Module checked by a technician. If that is ok then make sure they look at the altenator
In my case, I was getting voltage spikes that were shorting out system controls -the ABS Control Module and the battery, etc. Once they put in a new altenator, the problem was fixed.

You will have to get the error code before the engine light goes back off. You can do this by inserting the key into the ignition, then turning the key key to the on position three times with in 5 seconds. Remember this is the on position no the start position. Once you have done this the odometer will show the error codes briefly. They will look like this "P0202, P1225, P1400. Make sure you write them down because they can go pretty quickly. Once you have the codes go to the link listed below. It will give you a brief description of what the codes mean. If you need any thing else just let me know and I'll try to help.
The first link will have jeep specific codes, the second will be codes generic to all manufacturers. Just scroll down until you see the code listings.
Good luck.

Blue thermostat light comes on after driving for 5 miles or so and stays on; after driving for 20 miles or so on occasion the oil pressure light comes on when car slows down and is idling.

when the thermostat in a beetle goes, it stays in the open position, so it could be you blue light is indicating a "cold system",change the thermostat.
the oil light will come on if low on oil or you have a low pressure,try using 10/40 semi synthetic oil.and mloyslip.if no improvement you will need to renew the oil pump.

Abs brake light comes on after driving 20 to 40 miles. Will go off after shutting off engine for awile then comes on again after 20 to 40 miles. Why?

ABS system is self monitoring.It will perform a peliminary check on itself when you first turn the key on,thats why the light stays on for about 3 secs when you first start it up. It will also perform another check on itself after you reach speed of around 8-12 mph.
For it to come on while driving it must see something wrong at the wheel speed sensors that it knows can not be correct so it is shutting itself down. It has a digital wheel sensor in each wheel that it uses to compare side to side readings. If it sees one wheel spinning faster than the other it thinks one of the wheels is locking up and it activates. Now it could be one of the wheel speed sensors is starting to go bad or it may be something as simple as one of the tires low on air. I would check all of the air pressures in the tires first to make sure the are equal and if that is ok then I would have some one hook a scan tool to it and see what trouble codes are stored in the memory of the ABS module.
