ESC Light Came on and Cancelled Cruise in strong Crosswind
So I've searched on here and googled online and while I find some ESC light related articles I am not seeing my exact problem/issue and I guess I am hoping someone here can fill me in on how the ESC works and confirm what I am thinking or confirm I am thinking about this incorrectly.
So this past week, we took a long road trip and both coming and going encountered strong crosswinds, both times causing me to "countersteer" to the left to get my jeep to track straight down the highway. While doing this, with the cruise control on and running highway speeds of 70-75 mph, the ESC light would flash on and kick the CC off. As long as that light stayed on the CC functions were locked up and cruise would not work or function in any manner. Each time after I stopped and cycled the ignition switch, the ESC light would go out and CC would work fine again. Once I got out of the strong crosswinds everything has worked fine as well.
I had an alignment done about 2 weeks ago and jeep drives and handles great otherwise. Steering wheel does seem to be a hair off-center to the left as well (but not much at all), I will adjust this tonight. But other than counter-steering in those cross winds I have had no issues.
So my understanding is that ESC reads "wheel speed" and "steering angle". Would the "steering angle" from counter steering in a strong crosswind (like a 1/4 turn of the wheel) be so sensitive as to cause this?
Specs are: 2017 JKU on 37's that has been re-geared and tuner used to reset gear ratio and speedo, 3.6L with an auto transmission
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
