2007 Jeep Sahara ABS activates when not needed

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?

    How can I disable the ABS. Is there a fuse or wiring I can disconnect. I'm Sure the dealer ran all the scans and came up with nothing.

Check the wiring to abs. If this is not a contact , then the abs module must be replaced.

You can test the abs module using a tool like the following one:

    You cannot disable the ABS without reducing braking power, and you will also have to control brake pressure to avoid a lockup, this brake system is designed to be used with ABS. ABS can be disabled by cutting power to the module, but this can only be used for offroad use, like here : mike's totally free jeep news now - Forums.
    In your case you have to run to a good reliable garage, do what suggested in my previous comment and have the ABS fixed before getting more troubles.
    If the ABS had been tested and they did not find anything wrong, then it is probably a bad contact or wiring.

    Hope this helped

I have an 08 Jeep Liberty.Whenever the traction control kicks in it makes a growling noise.Any ideas what this could be?


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.

2007 suzuki xl7 abs and trac and stability lights stay on already have had sensor replaced


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.
huh?

in fact its that order
brakes
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

2008 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. Put wider tires on with after market rims, now when turn corners on ramps the traction control light comes on and the brakes grab on the front making it difficulot to...


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.

2007 wrangler.abs fault. where is the module so I can remove it to send for repair/ reprograming


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.

Two front automatic windows will not work


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.

Check engine light


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
