2007 Liberty traction control, stalling

If the traction control is on, and it is at all damp - car will stall and only turning key on and off three times resets so you can go again
Fine with traction control turned off
Does anyone have a clue what is wrong?
there are sensors for each wheel that could have gone bad, or there is a central unit of some sort I gather for this system - search has not yet given me this situation from anyone else

Re: 2007 Liberty traction control, stalling

It's possible that there is a problem with one or more of the wheel speed sensors or the traction control module itself. When the traction control system detects wheel slip, it will apply the brakes to the slipping wheel to prevent it from spinning and improve traction. However, if the brakes are applied too aggressively or at the wrong time, it can cause the engine to stall.

If the issue only occurs when the traction control is on and in damp conditions, it suggests that there may be an issue with one or more of the wheel speed sensors. These sensors measure the speed of each wheel and send that information to the traction control module, which uses it to determine whether a wheel is slipping and apply the brakes accordingly.

Another possibility is that there is an issue with the traction control module itself. The module is responsible for interpreting the signals from the wheel speed sensors and applying the brakes as needed. If the module is malfunctioning, it could cause the brakes to be applied at the wrong time, leading to stalling.

To diagnose this issue, it's best to take the Jeep to a mechanic who can run diagnostics on the traction control system. They will be able to perform tests and inspect the system to determine the root cause of the issue and recommend the necessary repairs.
