ESP light

Is it common for the ESP light to kick on once in a while on corners? I notice sometimes when taking a corner a tad fast I see the light kick on like the tires were slipping. I have 35" tires so wondering if the oversize tires cause this.

Specs;
DGV 4-Spd. Automatic VLP 42RLE Trans
DHES Command-Trac Shift-on-the-Fly 4WD
DJRS Next Gen. Dana 30 Solid Front Axle
DMEP 3.73 Rear Axle Ratio
DRZS Next Gen. Dana 44 HD Rear Axle
DSA Anti-Spin Differential Rear Axle
DS7S Conventional Differential Frt Axle

Thanks
Doug

I have the same issue. Went to the dealer and they said they are seeing intermittent communication with the clock spring so that is something I will have to replace soon.

Mine does this all the time. I do tend to be right foot heavy, though. When I'm taking my time, it doesnt happen.

My 2013 JK's ESP comes on when I am going fast in long sweeping corners or if I change lanes quickly while hitting an off-camber down slope. I think its pretty normal and would expect something like a Jeep to have a pretty conservative tuning for when the ESP will kick-in. Especially in light of all the controversy over the years about short wheel based 4x4's being unstable on the street.
