ESP BAS Traction Control Lights

I just purchased a 2007 Jeep Commander. The ESP BAS and Traction Control Light keeps coming on periodically. Oddley enough I think it comes on when the temperatuter is under 40.

My Cruise control also doesn't work once the light comes on and won't work after.

I just left it at the dealership for the 3rd time and it is 47 degrees si they will probably say they reset the computer and everything is fine.

Has anyone else had this problem?

I've had the ESP light flicker on once in a while, but always when I'm going over a rough surface like railroad tracks, etc. (never out of the blue)

Funny....it happens to me at the other end.....usually the temp has to be over 85.....dealer was hoping that the latest software flash would rectify the problem....unfortunately it won't be 85 here again til next July....we will see....

Are you losing traction, or turning when the light comes on?

I believe one time I was on some dirt/lose ground. But it stayed on long after that. It stays on until you turn the car off. The service manager is taking it home tonight.

I'm usually sitting in hot non-moving traffic when the lights come on

Esp

My light comes on at 32 degrees and colder. The service guys and the mechanic say that it just happens. Turning the truck on and off again clears it.

It's really something that shouldn't "just happen" IMO

Mine has not done any of the things that have been described previously but yesterday the light did come on while driving and stayed on. I drove by the dealer and they checked with starscan and found one of the brake switches to be stuck. The Service Guys replaced it and all is good now. I guess the Commander has 2 switches near the pedal. May help you guys.
