Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Open Question

The ABS light on my 2005 jeep grand cherokee has been on and off intermittently. The brakes seem to function fine except for a few instances when the brakes go straight to antilock for no apparent reason.

SOURCE: what is the normal engine temp for a 1996 jeep grand cherokee?

Hi there iask,

I could call myself ianswer. My name is Mike. I've got a 91 wrangler that used to do the same thing.

With me it was an air pocket. The temp sensor responds to a heavy medium like water, not air. As an air pocket circulates and comes into contact with the sensor, your gauge will fluctuate.

I'm sure you checked the coolant levels already, but hear me out. What I'm suggesting is like chicken soup, it can't hurt, it can only help.

Just because a radiator looks full, doesn't mean it is. Air pockets can exist in the engine and heater core. We're going to get rid of any.

Checking the coolant level.

  • I know, you've been there, but I say this to everyone. First and foremost: BE SAFE!!! Wear safety glasses.
  • This should be done with the engine cool. Never open the coolant caps on a hot engine.
  • When you look in the radiator, do it from an angle, not directly in front.
  • Have a hose or a couple two liter bottles full of water available.
  • Take off the radiator cap. (Do not take off if engine is hot)
  • Is the water level low? If so, top it off.
  • Make sure the transmission is in either PARK or Neutral and set the parking brake.
  • Start the engine, put he HEATER and FAN on HIGH. Go back to the radiator..
  • Observe the water level in the radiator. If it drops, top it off again.
  • At first it should do nothing. The water will seem to just sit there. This is normal. The water in the engine is still cool. The thermostat is closed. As the water in the engine heats up, the thermostat will begin to open. When it does, you will notice the water level begin to surge up and down.
  • When the thermostat finally opens all the way, the water will start moving as it cycles through the system. You will be able to tell when this happens.
  • Does the water level drop at this point? If so, top it off while it's circulating. Adding water will close the thermostat. Be prepared to wait through the cycling two or three times until the water level remains constant during a cycling.
  • Make sure the heater is blowing hot air. Turn it off. wait a full cycle. Then turn it back on. Check another cycle for level drop.
  • When you don't need to add water any more, put the cap back on. Observe the temp gauge. Has it leveled off? If so, it was an air bubble and it's gone. If not, We go to phase 2.
Either way, let me know how it goes. If you have any other problems, click the ASK button.

Remember: Good things come to those who Rate.

Mike

Abs light is on intermittently as well as service electric break system, service 4wheel drive system, check engine light, and vehicle with wavy lines. 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7 hemi. 140,00 hwy mi.


If you want to DiY, get an OBD code reader that'l connect to a smartphone. I use one with my two Mopars and it's great for pulling diagnostic codes (and recording GPS tracks). The brakes, electronic 4WD and traction control (wavy lines) are all critical safety systems; if you don't pull the codes yourself then get it to a good mechanic as soon as you can.

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.

IS it safe to drive your jeep liberty with the ABS light and Brake light on. It seems to be running fine, but I am afraid of doing more damage.


I would not be concerned so much with the ABS light, but the brake light needs to be investigated-does the petal feel the same? Is the brake fluid full? If both are alright, you only do not have ABS, which is not as critical, but if you have any issues with a different petal feel or low on brake fluid, it needs to be looked at immediatly.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo. today while i was checking out the anti freeze i notice the abs light came. the suv was running but was not moving. i dove the suv around after the light came and...


You probably have a bad wheel sensor. With the ABS light on the computer is detecting a malfunction in that system somewhere. Its usually caused by a faulty acuator pump or wheel sensor. This won't affect your brakes neccesarilly, however, with the ABS light on it means your anti-lock brake system is not functioning. This means if you hit your brakes too hard it will allow your wheels to lock up.
