2008 Jeep Patriot North problems...
My father just got a tire rotation done.
Since the tire rotation, a couple lights are appearing on the dashboard...
Anyway to fix this problem?! If it matters it's an automatic as well.
Thanks people, really appreciate it.
ABS light page 174
10. Anti-Lock Brake Warning Light — If Equipped
This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System
(ABS) described elsewhere in this manual. This
light will come on when the ignition key is
turned to the ON position and may stay on for
as long as four seconds.

The warning light should be checked frequently to assure
that it is operating properly. Turn the ignition key to the
ON position, but do not start the vehicle. The light

system checked by an authorized dealer.

The malfunction light for the ESP is combined
with BAS. The yellow “ESP/BAS Warning
Light” comes on when the ignition switch is

with the engine running. If the “ESP/BAS Warning

BAS system. If this light remains on after several ignition
cycles, and the vehicle has been driven several miles/
kilometers at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), see
your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
31. 4WD! Warning Light
This light monitors the 4-Wheel Drive (4WD)
system. The light will come on, for a bulb
check, when the ignition key is turned to the
ON position and may stay on for as long as
When lit solid: There is an 4WD system fault. 4WD
performance will be at a reduced level. Service the 4WD
When blinking: The 4WD system is temporarily disabled
due to overload condition.
2009 Deep Water Blue, Patriot "North" (E), 4x4 FDI, Security & Cargo Grp, Jeep window vents/hood deflector, 17" wheels (Firestones), Synthetic oil, homemade cabin a-filter, forum/bumper/3light decal, black muffler mod (life to date 22.9 MPusG - 34000Km)
Seems something must have happened while the rotation was being completed. Simply removing/switching tires should not have done that.
I would take it to the dealer.
