I ran into the back of another car when ABS kicked in. Took to dealer and said they could not find anything wrong. It happened again at a stop sign and luckily no one was coming into my way. I am unable to stop the vehicle. Just yesterday I braked on a dry road and it happened again. I took to dealer and they found nothing again. Now I'm afraid to drive the jeep. I ask the dealer to disable the ABS and they said they could not. What can I do to disable the ABS before I get into an accident?

The "growling " noise that you're hearing is the ABS pump being activated. Anytime the Traction Control System is activated or detects wheel spin/slippage, the ABS module will activate the pump because of the wheel speed variations. It is nothing wrong with the vehicle unless the TCS or ABS lights come on and stay on.
you forgot to scan it first
and to read the FSM on results of above, sure.
sounds like your shop is incompetent; try a full ASE shop. they wont make excuses...
first off if the brakes are bad or weak the ABS will not be happy.
if the abs cannot control wheel spin, then just maybe its bad brakes.
in fact its that order
ABS (abs needs brakes that work or/ fails)
Trac. (track uses ABS to work) so.... is last. to fix.
the lights can go on ,even when driviing off road. or on ice
this is normal, it just means ,easy dude...
but if it sticks on, you scan it, did you not scan it first? at stick on?
buy a scan tool
my innova 3160 does full factory scan.
finding chapter 11 suzuki dealers are a problem. so.... id sell it , if not with all tools needed. buy a jeep. 10x better.
best year is 2006. imo
hello i have a similar problem with my 2002 aztek the ABS light comes on only after my ABS system kick on when it is not suppose to (like normal braking conditions) i took it to be looked at at my local shop who also said it was a front hub having a bad wheel speed censor less than a week after having the work done the problem returned i took it back and they ran diagnostics on it for somewhere around 5 hr and could find nothing so they replaces the hub again.... no shocker here the problem isnt fixed still most recent time i had it in the tech said the problem is the cars computer is "loosing the wheel" he showed me where the main wiring harness runs right next to the oil pan along the bottom of the engine. the wires that go to the ABS control for that side are very swollen and the wires inside are loosing contact. they told me that i would have to replace the harness or live with the problem. after doing research the harness is no longer made and cost around $900 just for the part then u have to pay for the labor of someone putting it in
Hope this sheds some light on your problem
Took back to store where bought tires and rims. They also put the computer on, but they drove with it attached and the tech who was in passenger seat said left front wheel not calibrated as the others so he calibrated all wheels to .05 at the maximum tire allowance. This has stopped the brakes from grabbing.
Said that the factory had programmed in for 16 inch rims. Jeep came standard with 18 inch.
Now everything working great. Don't know why dealership could not do this properly. Happy I bought tires and rims from a reputable and knowlegeable store. (Tire Craft) Thanks Mike.
The recall is for the ABS module for lockup. That is most likely the problem, but to do the recall you have to flash the module with it installed in the vehicle. If you want you can rent a Star scan or mobile via techautority.com have lots of info for mopar aplication for do it yourselfers. Hope the info helps.
Check the door connectors. Remember your Jeep was designed to have it's doors removed? Start there.
If no luck pull the dahsboard switch apart and reverse the wires front to back.
Unless you're over 36,000 miles it should still be covered under warranty.
Please be advise that if you drive this and the check engine light is flash on and off. you should not drive it any more till you find the problem because you can cause more damage to the truck if the light is flash. there are many things that could cause this running condition: TPS, EGR, Bad injector, Idle air control and more would need to know codes that are in the computer, engine size 2 or 4 wheel drive, does it have A/C, Cruise, traction control, ABS brakes, then I maybe able to help you
