Oh no! Losing your manual is never ideal, particularly when a warning light presents itself in your car. No need to worry, you’ve come to the right place.
The ESP BAS light indicates that your Jeep’s Electronic Stability Program (ESP) or your Brake Assist Program (BAS) aren’t functioning as they should. These systems are vital to the safety of your vehicle and any problems should be addressed as soon as possible.
When the ESP BAS light comes on, your vehicle is telling you that a sensor needs to be replaced or reset. Most commonly, the Steering Angle Sensor needs recalibration.
As such, to turn off the ESP BAS light, you will need to reset the steering angle sensor. Simply turn the steering wheel twice to the right, twice to the left, and back to the center. Your steering angle system will be recalibrated and the ESP BAS light should turn off.
If the light does not turn off after performing the steering angle recalibration, you may have a problem with your Wheel Speed Sensor. In this case, you can replace the malfunctioning sensor with a new one, which should turn off the ESP BAS light and allow your Wrangler to drive as normal.
