Customer Question
My 2016 jeep patriot...

My 2016 jeep patriot has an ABS light and traction control light on in the instrument panel. Also my cruise control will not turn on. these problems showed up at the same time.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

No just the ABS light

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Patriot yourself? What have you tried so far?

I checked every fuse with an ohm meter. all fuses are good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm not sure what to do with the relays as I do not know their normal state.

You most likely have a bad wheel speed sensor which will cause the cruise to be inop. The proper way to diagnose this issue will be to connect a scantool to see which wheel speed sensor is bad.. if you don't have a scantool you can stop by any parts store and they will scan the codes free of charge...

I have a 2016 jeep patriot. I recently purchased a used factory replacement jeep radio. The jeep came with RES 130S radio in it, I am trying to swap out to an RHB 430N radio. I have researched very extensively and all the forums and the videos I have read and watched tell me this should be a plug and play situations and it should work no problem. When I plug the new radio in the accessory lights begin to pulse as if the alarm is going off but with no noise horn noise and no exterior lights flashing. I can not get the replacement radio to even turn on to punch in the 4 digit security code. If I try to start the car it shuts off after about 4 seconds..
