"ESP / BAS" LIght means??

Driving my 08 4 door yesterday and out of the blue the "ESP/BAS" light came on. I shut the car off when I got to where I had to go, about an hour later I left and when I started it up the light went off. Any ideas what can cause this??

Well for me It came on after my alignment had gotten screwed up after a wheeling trip and when the dealer realigned it they reset it. I think the manual says that it's the program messing up. But if it doesn't show up any more you should be good. Hopefully more knowledgeable guys will respond!

the users manual has a pretty detailed description of how esp works so you could try that before heading to the stealership

No I know what the ESP does, but never saw the ESP/BAS light come on.

is this a stock Jeep, or have you lifted it? chances are the steering is off and needs centered.

No stock, no lift of any kind.

ESP/BAS has been known to come on randomly then go away. Did you're ESP go off while driving recently?
