TCS And 4wd use the abs wheel sensors to engage and disengage so if there is a slight fault in the abs sensor system TCS will be disabled and the 4wd will either not engage or disengage depending on the drive position set at time of fault that is what the lights are telling you
Get the sensor system checked out from the abs rings on the axles to the sensors and wiring to the abs pump controller

unless you bought an extended warranty ---a recall is for the life of the vehicle when it done its done and up to the manufacturer if they will extend coverage on the recall part you can call jeep and ask about which recall your inquiring about and if yours is covered on all 3 compass recalls it was limited to certain ones

did you read the fsm on this,



not sure which book is best,ask jeep

the correct book walks you through all steps.

seems its abs (distances calce errors)
or the sensor is bad or dirty or loose or damaged
looking at it can do WONDerS

might even be bad brakes there
why not get the brakes checked by a real shop
ASE shops rule
ABS NEEDs good brakes FIRST.
1 case in point a grabbing brake, or other odd behaviour)
ever google search seems not
one guy had bad wheel bearing
a good shop (why not use one) would check that corner 100% bearing, shocks, sensor, brakes
and tie rods, (all means, ALL)
if tire hops moving and braking abs will be upset. ABS is not genius level yet.

all it knows is the sensors read odd.!!!!
and even compares them to others and true veh.speed
why not get a real mech, in the loop
it can also be network errors on the can buss network, that means using a REAL scan tool.
or you miss ALL THAT. (id bet no net error here)

the ABS sees odd readings right side sensor RF and RR
try to think like a dumbb computer (no joke)
if it sees one sensor , different and not braking and not turning
or one locks up, or varies. oddly braking.
oddly is he key word,
or IT tries to prevent a tire on right side from skidding but cant... (dah bad pads ,etc)
warped rotors??????
see how that works??
bad brakes
bad sensors (means wires there)
skipping tires
wobbling tires,rotors, bearing SHOT.
dead shocks (hopping like a bunny)
bad belongs.
sticky pads, burned up. or ???? not same match to others (do no mix brands up)
worn pads to metal back plates
overheated brakes
wobbing rotors.
(loose suspension parts right side)

do i need go gone on naming everything a spinning braking tire can do,wrong,, why? take a class on brakes then ABS,???
check for bad wires.
check brakes.
check bearings.
even loose lug nuts, really.
wrong size tire
bad tire, treads not same 4 corners.

or get car serviced ,that ASE guy knows what to do.

when abs fails , try to not think ABS
first (sure, wires)
try to think ABS saved my life by telling me
braking is bad before he human noticed it.!!!
it does this very well, this early warning
but is dumbb...
it can't know the wheel bearing is at
dangerous state of being../ just odd data, it sees.
(funny "odd" tone wheel, data from the sensors)
see choppy data... confusing to the non AI brain
it's not 2050 year.?

i did not list all possible points of failure
its too huge.
(ok pinched brake line)
get car serviced, why not?

or caliper slider pins sticking.... oops...

2008 Jeep... | Answered on Jan 19, 2016

wow one of the first posts ever to say, it wont crank....
very clear that. Its silent.
but is it automatic transmission, ill guess yes.
  1. fuses good.??
  2. battery terminals not green with rust.?
  3. does it crank in Neutral, as the operators manual states??
  4. you do know that new batteries, can be DISCHARGED right?
  5. so does jumper cable jump starts to a running donor car crank now? AAA Tow style? (oops new battery was discharged , charge it now)
  6. no, then hot wire the starter solenoid ,with keys in pocket.
  7. cranks now? , then starter is good. (i just saved you cash)
  8. no it doesn't crank now, the starter is bad, or engine is seized. (hand turn engine to discover that fact)
  9. cranks hot wired? yes,. that means the key line is dead.
  10. the Key line can be dead for 3+ reasons, aftermarket alarms added or remote start bs added, or transmission park/neutral switch is bad or ignition switch bad.
  11. to find #10 it takes a $10 volt meter, are you game?

2008 Jeep... | Answered on Aug 18, 2015

old post.
there are 4 transmissions.

2008 Jeep... | Answered on Jul 15, 2015

most just pry off, pop fasteners. from bottom up.
why not use youtube and watch 1000s do the same to all cars.
see the trend there. plastic pry lever, and pop, it goes.

or read and buy the fsm book
or read the door pages on alldata.com

or ? buy the FSM off ebay.
