    Not necessarily they build in a good amount of extra wire in the clock spring. Don’t think that would effect anything though.

    Turn it off so it never comes back on best solution.

    Bad speed sensor will do this as would a speed sensor cable that's chaffed and grounding out as it makes contact with something metal on turns.

    once you change from the OEM tire size it affects it.

    Make sure both tires are at the same tire pressure but better yet, disable the Stability control, you'll get a ESP warning at start up and a light on the dash but it'd better than having the system decide when it wants to apply the brakes.

    If you have a Rubicon you should have a ESP switch to temporarily disable it, it'll reset each time you shut down.

    Alternatively you can take it to the dealer to flash the ECU and disable it or do the steering wheel dance to permanently disable it.
    How can I disable it?

    If they're good, then one of the sensors is probably bad. Buy one and swap out one at a time until you find the culprit or replace all 4.

    There's probably a way to test the sensors with a meter, but I don't know what the readings are supposed to be.

    Is there a reason you’re avoiding taking it in under warranty then?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
