2009 Jeep Lib Speedometer Stops, Stalls and LIghts come on

The check engine light is consistently on, ABS and Brake and Other lights on dashboard come on, speedometer quits working and it stalls out on highways when i try maintaining 60mph. Oh and the auto start goes off in 30 seconds...I am told this is my ABS module. Could this be causing ALL this trouble? I am getting the new ABS Module put in today,but i don't see all the problems being fixed with this one new part. thx

No , you were told wrong, but ABS is bad too. (or was just the stall resetting ABS to self test mode)
you have 2 independent failures.
1: brakes. (if ABS is on,, not stalled !!!)
2: engine. (this is IT, fix this)

you are guessing at ABS parts.? just throwing them. why do that?
my guess is you have a mech, and you want seconded guessing
on line with blind folks here.


the engine stalls moving,
that usually means the ASD relay dropped out, did the IMMO light come on? you need to look at what all lights did in the cluster at stall.
a stall causes rapid deceleration and loss of all engine power
and RPM drops and MPH drops and at the point of stall
all Cluster lamps go ON. they go to key on self test mode as
stated in the users manual. (lost sure)
to witness this, key on, no start, and bingo the self test happens.
those are NOT failures. its just a self test. Per manual.

Does the ABS stay off driving and not stalling or stalled.
yes, then ABS is ok......

did you take it to a shop (crooks) and tell them my ABS is on?
and they see it's out, and go, gee we can make some cash here for nothing. if you tell them wrong, they will in fact guess, and make you broke fast.
ABS can go on just with a bad brake caliper pad. a $10 part.
if car stops ok, and the lamp is out RUNNING !!!!
Then leave the ABS alone. why assume the most expensive part on car is bad, why do that...???? why not put on new pads. and rotors.
first. then test the ABS. ABS is not magic it cant help stop any car with bad manual brakes. not at all.
end brakes; now back to ENGINE.


then fix the stalls,
here is the stalls list, for only the ASD.
(even a tuneup, will end stalling)

THE ASD is the funky Jeep thing, that kills the engine for many a reason. (there are tests for each case failure)

http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html


if the CEL lamp comes on driving < NOT STALLED)
then connect any scan tool, to the DLC connector at knees.
and scan the PCM for DTC errors.
then post those.
keep in mind, errors can AUTO clear, so not seeing them
in REAL TIME< means you missed the boat.
that is, you didnt get the facts of the failure.
but errors still in effect are stored and you can in fact
scan them parked, key on.
the CEL is only a SMOG light, you must scan to see the other 100+ errors. possible.

Better:
find a real ASE shop, and ask them to fix the stalls, (car stops good)
then they will fix that
and by magic the stalls are gone and the dash lamps go happy.

ABS and Brake light on dashboard is on. Speedometer is not working too


You have too many too many things going on to give a good diagnoses. It really needs to go on a scanner. My best guess, is the instrument panel is bad.

Any idea's on why my 2003 mini cooper S speedometer, odomete stops working and my brake warning lights, ABS lights come on. I have checked the air pressure in my tyres reset the system. The problem...


The speed signal comes from the ABS wheel sensor. You probably have a problem in the ABS system. Check the ABS system for errors with a diagnosis machine.

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.

Random lights coming on in the dash and stalling occasionally


See if you can find out if there is a code for the check engine lite and the abs, those can be related if the speed sensor located on the top of the rear axle is intermittantly failing. That sensor sends the speed signal to the pcm and the abs controler witch will also turn off the cruise control.
