Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

ABS light staying on

My abs light comes on real easy if I go across a rough patch of road or graveled road. Usually though I can turn the engine of and the restart the vehicle and it will go off again. This time it came on after I went over a speed bump and it won't go off.

My ESP /ABS, Traction Control, and ABS lights are on, and stay on. Also, my Emergency Brake light comes on once I'm up to speed 65+MPH, and won't go out.


find a real ASE shop, they have real tools.
it is bad.
or the ABS lamp would go out. that is a fact.
if all shops are tool less, in town find a real jeep dealer.
they will scan it and the DTC codes will be there. I promise.
do the ABS work if you skid a wheel, on grass,gravel, dirt etc.
slowly.??? feel the pulsing pedal.. if not ABS is shut down.
USA answer.

the brakes will still work right if the brakes really are good.
but what if the ABS sees a brake issue the test driver can detect.?
like loss of rear brakes. (fronts are 80% and loss of rears might go unnoticed, keep and open mind, and don't guess.
what if a the emergency brakes were messing up, causing ABS to fault.
all this is really just spectulation
why not scan it with a real scanner, to see all codes.
try the Innova 3160 (even walfart sells it) (most stores do)
mine does my ABS, the abs scans are unique and need a tool
that matches your car, check there pages (online) for if your car is supported for ABS. (my JK is)
your car is KJ. Jeep
read the FSM KJ chapter 5 yet?
here is a list of the Cxxxx codes you are missing




25821887-rdat4mhlq1jch52jv2lpzav4-5-0.jpg
the Innova tool is cheap, why a shop cant afford a $100 amazes me.
here is what ABS it does support (official list)

http://innova.com/Content/Support/Downloads/051812_31X0b%20ABS_Chart_Final.pdf

SCAN IT , then wonder.
or buy the tool , new with car, (savvy owners)
then when car messes up and your mech, is clueless?

ABS light stays on. No noticeable symptoms with brakes.


Get on dirt or gravel road and attempt to lock up the brakes. If they lock and vehicle slides, ABS is not working. GOOD scan tools will read the ABS codes.

Abs light stays on, after changing brakes, 1997 caddy deville


ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.

ABS light stays on


ABS light comes on with ignition then should go off when you start the car.
If abs sensor does not turn off after disconnecting the battery, then there is a real problem, a faulty sensor or ABS malfunctioning.
When the ABS led comes on immediately after you start the car and stays on usually is one of the relays.
The main one is called surge arrester relay, if it is faulty usually there have been anovervoltage.
There should be two more, usually located behind the black plastic cover of the ABS.
Testing and changing the faulty relay can fix the problem.

If light turns off on startup, and comes back on when you reach some speed, usually you need to check the wheel sensors. You test them unplugging the sensor located behind the wheel and testing it for continuity with a multimeter.
Use Haynes manual to find locations and specs of relays.
Contact a qualified mechanic if you cannot fix it yourself, problems with ABS may compromise safety of the vehicle

I have a 2002 alero and i can feel my abs grind then stop and my service engine soon abs and trac off lights come on, what could this be?


you have no longer 4wd one of your front cv joints have failed!

The choppers for the ABS sensor is on the cv joint so every time you breake the ABS inturprits that as a skid and goes off! I HAVE HAD EXACTLEY THE SAME THAT'S HOW I KNOW AND CAN BO SO PRESISE!

DON'T GO OFF ROAD YOU WILL GET STUCK!

jack the front up each side in turn then turn the wheel
by hand, the one that turns easy is the broken one!
don't drive it if you can help it it can do more dammage! if you have no choice: the take it easy!
it won't be doing your transfur box much good eather!
because it will be sending 100% power to the rear and 0% power to the front! winds the viscus diff up!
on normal opparation it supplys 50% rear 50% front (on road constant) varys off road thogh but that's what it's for NOT COMPENSATING FOR LOSS OFF DRIVE ON THE FRONT CONSTANLY ON THE ROAD!

get it sorted soon don't panic they can take a bit of abuse, but just take it steady dov't go mad in it untill youv'e sorted it thats all.
joints here in England are £59 don't know how much there! Hope I helped you out there.

Abs light is on


The problem may be that you just have a faulty wheel sensor that is sending false signals to the your on board computer.
You will need to get the ABS computer scanned. Check all fuses first before getting it scanned.

ABS light just came on, is it an easy fix. My abs warning light comes on often. It usually stays on until I restart the car, then it might stay off for days but will always relight. Often, I turn the...


The code scanner that you need is called ODBII code reader with ABS, and it works in the same way as the one that you connect to the car computer module (ECU) to read codes when the check engine light comes on, but the cheap ones that you can buy from $50 do not have the ABS brake scan function.

If the problem is the ABS, then it is often a wiring to abs problem, or a defective ABS control module, a scan reading is necessary to know what the problem is.

Below few examples of Code reader with ABS:

Ford focus abs light dose not light up at all . ( 99-1.6.petrol)


read your owner manual to see when the BAS light should be on during "prove out." Sometimes the prove out is after the engine starts.
Also, if the ABS ever fails, you always still have regular power brakes.

You should go on a gravel road and slam on the brakes to se if the anti'lock still functions. You will hear the BAS motor run and the pedal pulse. good luck
