i replaced the clockspring a few days ago and the traction control light turn off but then i noticed went i turn to the right or left the traction control light flashes and it feels like the abs engaged a little and the jeep lose power, it only does it when i do sharp turns, i didn’t have that problem before i replaced the sensor (maybe i didn’t notice), the streering is straight so im not sure what’s going on someone told me i need to calibrate the sensor, havent done any work to the jeep so still stock.

If you turn hard to the left or right while driving the sensor thinks the Jeep is fishtailing and then does the traction control thing. Best mod is to do the Traction Control delete, I know i've been driving enough years that I know how to control my vehicles instead of the Jeep doing it.

The Jeep would drive and stop just like it's supposed to. Have you ever experienced what ABS brakes do or the ESP? If you did i'd think you would like not having it. I grew up driving cars and trucks without ABS and ESP and i'm still alive and glad they were never on older vehicles.

i understand but i don’t want to do that yet i just want to know how to fix that for the meantime, and its not only on sharp turns the traction control light flash it’s also when i turn right or left. it’s annoying everytime the light flash.

We are just trying to tell you that it's probably easier and cheaper to disable it then try fixing it. Have you scanned for codes?

Just like I told you in post no 2 if your turning sharp and fast that is what the Jeep does, it has to do with that sensor that we're telling you to disable. The only repair is not to make quick sharp turns.

The Clockspring may have had something to do with the ESP since the ESP has to do with the steering wheel.When you fixed the Clockspring you fixed the ESP. You can always wait to see if anyone else has a idea.

Yep, X2 to this.

You'll actually enjoy driving it a lot more, I promise. You also won't have any of those stupid nanny lights constantly acting up.

I also have this issue with my traction control light that comes on and my truck slows down whenever I hit a rough patch on the road which never happened to me in my previous 4x4. Apparently my steering is not adjusted properly so my jeep thinks I'm in a slide even when I'm going straight! I tried to adjust the sway bars, buy no luck. Any ideas or solutions?
I never had this with my Chevy Avalanche!

Is your steering wheel centered when your driving straight down the road?
