Warning light help!

Hello I'm new to this site so not sure if I'm posting in the right topic or not. A few weeks ago I got in my car and noticed my a/c wasn't working as I pulled out of my drive way I had my "abs" light and traction light(car skid light) come on they have been on ever since and randomly come one and go off. Along with the hill assist warning light ? Can anyone help me had this happened to anyone. I want to bring it to a shop by would like to know the problem before I go so I don't get robbed. Please anyone help my Jeep is a 2013 unlimited Sahara Wrangler thank you in advance

A/C can be lots of reasons and you do know that the JK A/C doesn't come on right away after starting the Jeep, it can take a minute or two before it actually engages the clutch. Does it work 5 minutes or so after starting the Jeep?

For the ABS/Traction lights, is the steering wheel centered? If it's off center, than the computer thinks there is a problem and that's when the lights come on. It's an easy fix, a 15mm wrench and a pipe wrench to adjust the drag link (the sleeve turns) to recenter the steering wheel

If the wheels are centered and the wheel is off meaning the Jeep logo is crooked with the wheels centered, there is no need to scan for the ABS, etc codes. It's the steering wheel position. Now if the wheels and steering wheel are centered, absolutely, get a scan for fault codes.

That's the ABS pump kicking in. It applies a series or bursts to the brakes if it thinks they have locked up or in a potential skidding condition.

So, is the steering wheel centered? The flaky ABS pump still can be attributed to an off center steering wheel.

The issues may be related but also may not be.

For the A/C, is the clutch engaging with the A/C on? if it is, you will be needing A/C service, either you have a leak in the system, the clutch coil is bad or your compressor is failing.
