Hey how are you '

The ABS light could trigger for several reasons, low or weak battery ,dirty abs wheel sensors , wiring to abs module etc,

you need to have it scanned with Chrysler capable scanner to retrieve the abs / bas traction control module and based on the fault codes we can pull up pin point trouble shoot and be accurate or it will be a guess , if it was a glitch , the system will eventually clear after so many ignition cycles the system keep checking for fault if none came back will clear, or scanner will it clear it , but best to know why .

if you do get the faults codes read post them back here for me and i can help further

with that said,Make sure the battery has 12 volts and holding under load, alternator charging 14 volts when running , you can try taking abs wheels yourself and clean and reset it using below procedure if you do not want to take it any where and have the tools

The warning light is telling you the abs /bas system is off line but you still have brakes so you do not feel any change in the driving

unless you feeling pulsation under the brake pedal when applied that could indicate abs pump failure ,but testing is needed

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30- minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

You are very welcome :)

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
