Welcome to JA my name is Mark.

When you get this combination of lights coming on it is typically an indication of just one issue and more often than not, that issue is a wheel speed sensor. What the shop will do is use their scan tool to retrieve the trouble codes and this will tell them which one of the 4 sensors is causing you grief. This is not an overly expensive repair so that is a good thing for you and as far as driving it he 60 miles........I don't see that causing any issues for you until you can get it into the shop.

With the lights being on your abs system will be disabled but your base brakes will still function totally normal.

I hope that helps to answer your question but if you need anything further just let me know. Thanks.

Thanks Mark,I gave you five stars for you insight re my Jeep. The mechanic dis exactly what you said and scanned the vehicle. He learned that a bearing in the front left wheel needed to be replaced. He also found something else.About a month ago I put on four new Goodyear snowtires. The mechanic noticed that three tires were the wrong size for the Jeep and only one was correct. The tire dealer replaced the tires, the mechanic replaced the bearing and now we're back to normalThanks again for your insight

That's great! glad you got it all fixed up........but not good that they mixed up your tires???

, This is a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 3.7 liter
This is a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 3.7 liter I think, 4x4 merecedes transmission. I am not a mechanic. The car was just driven from Texas to NC over two days with no problems. It went there for my daughter to have at college. While up there, the shifting seemed like when you were starting out that it would slip as you were getting going. It made a louder hum. Once you were going faster it was OKay. While we were there, the warning light came on. I had to leave to fly back to Texas. It was taken to a jeep dealer yesterday and I found out today the error codes were P0219 and P0713. I looked them up. Engine overspeed condition and Transmission fluid temperature (TFT) sensor circuit high input. The dealer is telling me they have to rebuild the clutches in the transmission or replace the transmission. The car just made it through 1200 mile trip without issue and then this started to happen. My local mechanic in Houston, told me that it could be anything from a bad sensor to the transmission going out but this was before I knew the codes and had just described the symptoms to him. I am getting his input tomorrow. I am a bit concerned that the dealer may be taking advantage of me not being there and my 20 year old daughter having to bring it in. He is talking about $480 for a tear down and about $2000 to rebuild. … read more
