    updated 08 JK 4 door - ABS light flashing

    update** on the way home all three lights came back on and nothing is working properly again.


    So most know i purchased an 08 four door unlimited x wrangler 3.8l standard trans lemon! Well the abs light is flashing with a constant ding with no codes. Let me tell you how this came to be.... about two mos ago my BAS, ESP, ABS lights all came on. I had no abs or traction control. Code was right wheel speed sensor wasn't communicating so i looked n it was snapped in half..... replaced it but lights were still on n nothing worked so i re read codes n it said both left n right wheel speed sensors were not communicating. More pulling apart and checking wires n i find there isn't power the the abs break module. I replace this and have the dealer recalibrate it and program it to the jeep. My BAS n ESP light goes off but the ABS light goes from solid to flasing n dinging constantly without throwing any code...... !?! Any ideas?

    Do you have a Rubi. 4dr? How long has the light been flashing since the dealer reflashed? I would guess your other wheel sensor is gone, or you have a bad tone ring in unit bearing.

    Re: 08 JK 4 door - ABS light flashing

    I'd look at the sensors. My jk would puke one out every few months for a while. After having all of em replaced once they only had to be done with the unit bearing. Also check the wiring to the sensors for damage and the connector for corotion.

    It started immediately after the jeep was flashed. Came back solid after 8 hrs of driving, with bas n esp lights. Then this morning it went back just abs light blinking. Its an 08 base model. Upon pulling apart a connector today i seen a plug in was stretched a lil. Im going to have it reflashed now that tge left wheel sensor is reading. Ill keep it updated. Thank you!
