Sway bar light flashing sparadically

2007 2dr, rubicon. Last few weeks my sway bar lights has been flashing all on its own. Had not manually actuated it in months. Usually it stops during a drive about town, sometimes not. Sitting overnight however its always off in the morning.

I did try to actuate it just incase it needed to be dis engaged then re engaged but it still flashes sparadically.

Any ideas ?

Home sick today so updating a few posts.

Sway bar light hasn't flashed at all since I stopped a rad leak on Jan 10.

The leak was dripping down onto the sway bar motor a bit. I think the rad fluid was causing the flashing.

I have had this same issue when on the trail, starting to think that if water gets into the connector or somewhere else on the motor the ECU thinks there is a problem and flashes the dash light.

Sounds like there may be an issue with the plug. Maybe smear some dielectric grease around the seal and plug it back in..............................
