Hello. I have a 2012 Compass (37,500 miles on it). Randomly the Traction Control and the ABS light come on. Sometimes it'll be when the car has been running for an hour+, and then it stays on for a day or so after, but then just as random as it comes on, they both go off. It'll stay off for a few days, weeks, months, and then its back on again. The car drives the same. I don't notice/feel a difference in the way its driving/handling. This is my first Jeep, so I'm not sure if its just the electrical, and not a big deal, or if this is something major, and I need to bring to the dealership. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a bunch!

You would need the codes scanned to determine what maybe going on. Traction control activates automatic braking and transmission state, neither of which are good to be active all the time. This is typical occurrence if the computer believes you are entering a skid or loosing control.

History on the vehicle may have shed light on what might be causing it assuming the aforementioned conditions don't apply.

Chances are, a code scanner will point to a wheel speed sensor.
