ABS and Traction Light on - possible cause and solution?

Asked by Aug 17, 2017 at 11:46 AM about the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While driving this morning, both the ABS and Traction lights came on.  Initially it didn't seem to cause an issue until the Traction Light started to flicker on and off. When that happened, the vehicle practically slowed to a stop and switching gears/hitting gas had no affect on speed.  It stopped and I made it to my destination, but I have an appt. at a dealership to have this diagnosed and fixed (under extended warranty). Would like to have some possible causes and solutions before I hear what the dealer says.

You might be able to just pull the abs fuse for short term fix, but it sounds like air in the solenoid.
