ESP Problems

I have problems with my ESP activating around turns at 35 mph and lower,
tight turns in the mountains. I have a 4 inch FT lift and 35 inch Tires. I know
you can only turn it off when locked in 4H. Anyone else having these issues.

Send a message via Yahoo to WTF_LOL

have you aligned the front end recently?

IS your steering wheel straight when driving down the road?

MOst common problem I have seen is bent drag link or tie rod throwing it off or people not adjusting the draglink after lifting.

There are other problems people have experienced that have upset their ESP but, for me, everytime my ESP starts yelling at me I just re align the front end and it goes away

ESP went away when I clipped the wire. No problems since then.

My ESP problems went away when I installed a Poly Performance High Steer Drag link (4.5 lift and 37s).

On 2008 JK models I thought there was a sequence you could perform to disable the ESP? Turn steering wheel 90 degrees to the left and hold key in pre-on for 7 seconds etc...

now before we torubleshoot the issue please give us some info on your JK. Last time you rotated tires? Is it stock? where you wheeling recently?

Basic things to check include the following:

Alignment of steering wheel and make sure it's centered.
tire balancing
tourque of all bolts in front trackbar
also steering stabilzer
