When the ABS warning (or any other for that matter) comes on a fault code is set in the computer control module, to start diagnosis and testing you need to have that fault code, that requires the ABS system be scanned for fault codes. Right now the ABS system has been disabled until the problem is repaired.

What is 13 abs under voltage 2004 jeep grand cherokee

No speed sensor signal at one of the wheels. An expensive fix just to make the light on the dash go out. ABS light on will not affect normal braking function. I would just remove the light bulb in the dash. ABS function is barely noticeable and not cost effective.

Esp light evrey time iam repleace antilock breake system

please re-post, i can not understand that.
I get the ESP light,?
under what conditions?
you replaced the ABS system, nah , i dont believe that. not at all.
what exactly did you replace , name the parts.
ABS controller, ABS modulator, , ABS sensors and tone rings?
did you read the FSM on this?
i bet not.
the 2004 here might help.

the brakes must all be good (1st)
the ABS must be 100% perfect, or the ESP will fail.
ESP uses many system functions to stop skids. including the ABS controls.
to fix this , you need a scanner that can scan all systems on this car.

Abs light stays on in my 97 jeep grand cherokee

The light means there is a problem with the abs pump or one of the sensors for the abs system. Your regular brakes will function normally but while the light is on you have no antilock braking. Abs systems can be fairly complicated, it may be best to take the truck to a reputable repair shop.

The warning lights for the brakes and ABS came on in my 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo after I bumped a snowbank pulling out of the driveway. I shut the vehicle off and back on, but they're both still...

Yes it is. I would first look under where you hit. You may have packed snow/ice in between the sensor and exciter ring. or knocked a wire loose. these are located by the inside of the tire.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee The ABS light comes on and stays on. What does this mean?

You may have a faulty sensor, most cases a wheel speed sensor, the light is on warning you that you do not have abs basically your car will stop like an old 70's model car before abs. abs atands for anti lock brakes, it keeps your brakes from locking up under extreme braking.

I have a 2004 grand cherokee and a light that says ABS has been on for about 20 min, what does this mean?

it means you having an issue either with one of your speed sensors on your hub assemblies or perhaps a problem with a module. You can get a scan tool and enter into live data and view each sensors operations. Before you do that, look for messed up wires at ur abs sensors on ur wheel bearings.

Whats wrong my abs light is on, my brake light is on and my speedometer nor odometer are working? 2004 jeep grand cherokee larado 6 cyl 4.0 liter

here is the short version...

the vehicle speed sensor is actual an interpreted signal from the ABS module and the ABS module uses the wheel speed sensors

therefore, if the ABS module sees a problem with any sensor it will affect the PCM input for vehicle speed

another possibility, but worst case, is the ABS module has failed

in either case you will need a professional scan tool to monitor actual wheel speed versus PCM vehicle speed
