Each time you start the vehicle the ABS system runs a self diagnosis. If a fault is found the ABS light on the dash stays on for that ignition cycle. Try this, take a large screwdriver and, before you start your Jeep, tap on the pump and modulator assembly with the handle of the screwdriver. If the ABS light goes out the pump motor is probably sticking. HTH. -Jim

Jim knows what he is talking about. guaranteed. But also if by chance a wheel speed sensor has failed, it will light it up too. This is the sensor parts. 2000 Wrangler
