ABS,ESP/BAS and TCS lights all came on!

I have a 2009 jeep patriot. Today the ABS,ESP/BAS and TCS lights all came on.
This is the third time this has happened, to the day... Feb 11, 2011; Feb 11, 2012, and now Feb 12, 2013..... The first two time it was taken to the dealer and they changed the ABS sensor in both instances. But now it happened for a third time and I'm shore it wil not be covered under warranty, being that it has about 41000 miles...

Has the ABS sensor been a problem with these jeeps?
My sister in law has the same jeep and year, and has had the same problem!

All comments welcome

When my Grand Am used to do that it was a wheel speed sensor. Located in the hub.

I had a similar problem on my '07 that turned out to be the Steering Angle Sensor (it was out of alignment due to ball joints and tie rod ends). A quick check is to turn the steering wheel full left/right/left and see if the reset fixes it and then go from there.

My pat had same problem

My pat had the same thing happen and it was the speed sensor in the rear. They were easy to change and only $15 each side. Just changed both sides.
