ESP/BAS, traction control, ABS lights

I have read a bunch of posts about this in an effort to find an answer but nothing seems to point to the same issue I am having. So here it goes:

When I hit any sort of bumps or apply anything more than medium break pressure I feel a slight pull to the passenger side and then my ESP/BAS, traction control, ABS lights pop on. Once the lights are on my cruise control and ABS don't work. On most occasions the lights turn off after a couple minutes of normal driving.

Anyone have any clue where this issue might be coming from?

Sounds like a faulty wheel speed sensor perhaps...

I had the same problem. I took it to the dealer and they replaced multiple parts and couldn't find the problem. I took it to my other mechanic and all he did was tighten the steering wheel and it never happened again.

Wheel speed sensor loose? Mine got caked with mud, the sensor contacted the reluctor wheel and all the same lights came on. If you can get it scanned when the lights are on it will tell you where the problem is.

If you have an android device get a cheap elm327 bluetooth obd2 reader. $5-$10. You can plug it in and when the lights pop up pull over and see what codes you get.

I have a similar issue on my jeep, its funny in the same way, I can be at a stop light, it turns green and if i hit the gas too hard and the front end comes "up" my ABS/ESP lights come on, but then can turn the jeep off and on and the code will be gone. This also happens if I go around a corner too fast.

I do not know. Most likely the paid apps like dashcommand.

I had this problem with the ESP tuning on over speed bumps going slow the light turn on then off. I was in the mountain going on the twirling road the light comes on slows jeep then drives fine. I had my front shocks changed couple month ago and the install guy told me that my abs wire was rapped around the shock and it was pulling on the wire it was mounted correct and have not had a problem since.
