Few owners comment about this, the vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnostic testing and they stated that the ABS sensor failed. After this diagnostic, they go to the dealer for any RECALL; try it with your delaer and VIN vehicle.

When the car jerks what's the cause?

Do you have a 4 wheel drive, is it in 4 wheel drive and are you driving on dry roads? Very very bad for the 4 wheel drive transfer case.

If not, it could be the CV joints, the engine, the transmission, very bad Gasoline.
If it's during braking then it's the Anti-lock brake system engaging when it's not supposed to.

It will take off on its own but when I push on the gas it slows it down and if I put it in 1st it'll jerk you back and forth. This has only been happening since the keys for locked in the car and we had to break into it but there is no anti theft light on.

If the the abs module fails you still have breaks BUT if you need to apply the breaks to the floor the abs will not work which could allow you to go into a slide because of loss of traction. the abs system pumps the breaks to prevent your tires from locking up

Anti lock break light on

Have the sensor checked first. If that's not the case, the system may be defective. Only be having it checked by a trusted mechanic will give you peace of mind. Get an estimate first! Good Luck

After driving for a short time the anti-lock break light comes on

you should check the ABS system under the hood. It's where the brake fluid reservoir is. make sure you're not losing fluid. and then, check your abs sensors on wheels; they could be going bad.
