Q: ABS light is on

asked by on

My ABS light is on.

There could be several reasons as to why your ABS light is on in your Jeep Wrangler. One of the most common reasons is due to a faulty wheel speed sensor. Without additional information however, it may be time to enlist the assistance of a certified mechanic to come and diagnose your Anti-lock Braking System with you. They will have the experience and tools required to retrieve the codes from the ABS computer and locate the cause of your ABS light. They will also be able to assist in making the necessary repairs to restore proper function to your Jeep’s Anti-lock Braking System.
