I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 Wrangler 2dr, RHD, automatic. The brake lights turn on when in park (idle) and I can hear a clicking sound under the shifter area. Just one of the several electrical issues.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

I just got it two weeks ago. I have not checked the brake fluid yet.

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

I will be making the repairs myself, yes. I haven't tried anything yet. I wanted to see if there are known trial and error first.

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

The esp and traction control lights come on at any time when driving and sometimes while parked (idle). This may be related. I read these may be an issure repairable by getting and alignment, but they may be all related.

Hello Chad,
I can view the file, thank you. I am currently not at the vehicle, but will check the brake light switch when able. Is there a relay below the shifter that needs attention as well? This is where I hear the clicking every time the brake lights come on and off.

no relay ,i believe it could be the switch itself clicking ,it is common ,

just abs warning could be separate issue ,start with switch first ,

when u get home ,take cover off and put had on it and see if it is clicking

sounds good read below how to get back in touch with me later when u working on it and we continue

also try to get us faults from abs module
