ETC/ stability control jerking over 10 MPH

HI, I have a 2008 Jeep Compass Rallye 5 speed. It has 115,000 miles on it and after going 10-20 mph it will start bucking and jerking, and when it is in 4X4 mode it will disengage. I have read that this might happed if you get front work done and not properly aligned or computer reset that it will do this or it is the speed sensor or something completely different. I just want to get a real good honest idea of what it is before putting money or effort into the wrong area. THANK YOU for any help or advice. ONLY IN A JEEP!

Sry, I meant the ESP, not ETC. I would have to push the ESP button to relieve the problem but it still is only a temporary fix since I can't use my 4x4 . Thanks

As per the above IF the steering wheel is pretty much level when driving straight then the front end won't cause the problem due to alignment. If you turned like 11 or 1 o'clock going straight then you need to fix that first.

As for what is causing the problem well it depends

- an codes generated
- bad sensors on front wheels or some thing related

Without the proper tools and diagnostic all you can do is pull each wheel off and look for broken wiring, damaged or worn linkages. Worn out brake pads etc. I doubt anything at the back end would cause this. But something is triggering the ESP, hence the computer thinks you're in a skid, therefore if you not in one you need to think like it is and figure out what is causing this. What I 've mentioned above is a start. Otherwise you'd have to take it to a competent shop and brake specialist would be a start where they can test the ABS and wheel sensors are working. Snow, Ice etc from deep driving messes them up temporarily though once it melts back to normal.

Thank you, I will for sure take it to a true "PROFESSIONAL". Hopefully it is something as simple as sensors since the brakes are fairly new plus new struts. again thanks!!!!
