Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee with approximately 138,000 miles on it. The ABS light comes on periodically but will normally go back off. I have scanned the vehicle when the ABS light is on and have not found any stored codes. I have cleaned and checked the wheel speed sensors. Any ideas on why the ABS light is coming on with no stored codes?

The only time there will be any codes stored in the ECM is when you get a check engine light. The sensors will sometimes become loose or out of adjustment over time. Check this out and if all is ok then you will need to check the wiring. If all still checks out then you will need to replace the sensor. one quick test is to test the sensors with an ohm meter. They should have a closed loop. If your meter reads OL then it will need to be replaced. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Jeep grd cherokee laredo 4.0 6L. 4WD The ABS don't work


I would say someone has disconnected it rather than fix it.
You might find a missing fuse or relay that powers the ABS module, or the module may be unplugged. It could have been removed too.

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.

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.

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee just started making a clicking or rattling noise when starting up. The noise isn't audiable when driving. I've checked the oil level and it is normal. It is time for an oil change,...


so it goes away after a bit, that could be cause theres no oil on the top part of your engine, thats normal. wait till it gets older, it will be louder.

The ABS Light and msg cnter on 2005 Jeep cherokee is coming on.


You have to check you brakes yourself or take it to the shop, I had a brake light on and once I change the rotors and brake pads the brake light went off.

My 97 jeep grand cherokee makes a chirping sound under front


The noise and the light may or may not be related. The noise may be the wear indicator on the brake pads touching the rotor (they are supposed to do that when brakes are worn) The abs light triggers off a wheel on the axle end. If you have a bad joint on the axle, it could be noisy and causing the wheel to not have the proper clearance to the abs sensor. You really need to take the wheel and brake assembly off and carefully inspect everything. Make sure all abs sensor wires are undamaged...it doesn't have to be at the same wheel that's chirping.

ABS light on


thundergod hit the nail on the head with the Jan 28th, 2009 post!
I had a similar problem, took my car back to my mechanic and they fixed it for $45!
They had accidentally (I hope) knocked a wire loose when doing a major repair but warning lights don't come on right away they take a few miles of travel to run through the software in our cars computers before showing up on the dash!
This is why I change mechanics every so often!
Like food, I get sick and tired of tasting the same thing over and over again.
I put 25,000 miles on a year, do a lot of maintenance and repair, and most importantly ...change mechanics every once in a while!

Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!

I would look for a blown fuse first, then look for a loose connector on the harness under the dash,considering the age of the vehicle, the connectores tend to get heat checked and crack causing a short or poor connections.. please rate this
