Grand Cherokee 2WD V6-3.7L (2008)
ABS Light: Description and Operation
An Antilock Brake System (ABS) indicator is standard equipment on all instrument clusters. However, on vehicles not equipped with the optional ABS,
this indicator is electronically disabled. This indicator is located near the top of the cluster overlay, between the speedometer and the tachometer.
Illumination of this indicator may also be accompanied by the display of certain textual messages in the cluster reconfigurable dot matrix display.
The ABS indicator consists of a stencil-like cutout of the International Control and Display Symbol icon for Failure of Anti-lock Braking System in
the opaque layer of the instrument cluster overlay. The dark outer layer of the overlay prevents the indicator from being clearly visible when it is not
illuminated. An amber Light Emitting Diode (LED) behind the cutout in the opaque layer of the overlay causes the indicator to appear in amber through
the translucent outer layer of the overlay when it is illuminated from behind by the LED, which is soldered onto the instrument cluster electronic circuit
The ABS indicator is serviced as a unit with the instrument cluster.
