Traction Control, ESP, BAS Warning Lights?

I was driving home from work on the freeway at about 80mph/130kph when after about 20 minutes the traction control symbol, ESP, and BAS lights came on. When I arrived home, I switched to 4 Lo - no change, I tried shutting it off, then turned the key to "on" and while all of the other lights went out during the test, the above lights stayed on.

Does anybody have any idea what's going on? BTW it has been above freezing for the past few days, and overnight (I work night shift) the temperature dropped well below freezing.

Thanks

Mine did this when I had a bad speed sensor. I used my Superchips tuner to read the error messages which told me which sensor was bad. If car parts stores in Canada provide OBDII reading services, you might try that route. The sensor was about $35 in the 'States and relatively easy to replace.

Bad wheel sensor, possibly.

Well surprise surprise! I fired her up sat afternoon to head to work, and after about 10 minutes, while making a left turn, the lights disappeared! The JEEP ghosts were just paying a visit apparently
