Damn you are everywhere

Have you recentered your steering wheel yet.

Even Stang knows a mall crawler needs to have the wheel centered.

If it isn't the ESP will lose its mind

Yea make sure you re center the wheel. You may have to do it a few times to get it right.

if your wheel is centered make sure they didn't strech out one of your lines and have it come loose. down by the brakes is the most common spot for it to happen. i bet it is your steering wheel tho. just 2 15 or 16 mm (can't remember the size for sure) bolts and twist and re tighten in small increments. helps to have a friend at the wheel to yell at you when you go the wrong way lol. good luck

DO NOT pay someone to center your wheel!

Anyone can do it. Heck, I do it with my 8 year old sitting in the driver's seat to tell me if I'm going the wrong way and to tell me when it's centered.

Heck, you can do the whole alignment. Just takes a little bit of time and a few wrenches.

Aligned is a great idea. They may or may not center your steering wheel. I'm really anel about my SW being centered so I do that myself. Its easy since the drag link can be adjusted. Usually takes me 3 or 4 trys to get it just right.

If it helps you in the meantime you can take your owners manual out for reference and disable ESP completely.

Working from memory but:

Get your wheels straight first...(now that I'm thinking about it this might not work if the SW isn't centered)

Turn your key to "ON" position (DON'T START) and wait approximately 5 seconds for all of your dummy lights on the dash to quit. Then shift T-Case into 4HI.

Turn wheel from center to 1/2 turn to the right and hold it. Hold down ESP for 7 Seconds.

Turn wheel back to straight and hold ESP down for 7 seconds.

Turn wheel 1/2 turn to left and hold ESP down for 7 seconds.

Turn key off.

Turn key back to on position.

Jeep with squiggly lines under it should be on in center dash and you should get a read out saying "ESP disabled" for approximately 12 seconds each time you start the Jeep.

I believe you get a ding when you do it right. Usually takes a couple of run throughs.

Good luck!

Recenter your wheel before ya try to drive it. Yes the alignment will do the same, but if you do it now, Your drive into town and off the side of the mountain may be more enjoyable.

did the steering wheel correction last nite, helped.

alignment is finished, all is well except castor

factory spec is according to thier computer, 4.7, and after the LCAs dialed in best i could get was 6.2... the alignment tech says this wont effect anything other than returning to center 'harder' than stock. upper front and lower rear control arms are on my short list of future upgrades.

Once you get the 37s on you may like the Castor at 6.2. A little extra with the bigger tires is a good thing. Should help it run down the road a bit straighter.

So were the PICS? You have posted on MWJT yet

I agree with the more castor thing here and 37's. Mine is set at 5.5 with the 37's and seems to track nicely going down the road at 65-70 mph. when it was down lower 3.5 it was very flightly and wanted to follow the grooves.

Now pics or DIAF

Hi thanks for the info. I just did this and it seems to work. right after I did this I put it back it 2WD and spun the tires and the squiggly came on on the dash , does that mean it doesn't work in 2WD? I know this is an old post but I am seriously thinking about putting a switch in to disable the esp if this doesnt work in 2WD. Thanks

You might want to try it again- not sure if the disable is year-specific, or if the attempt was unsuccessful. Mine does it in 2wd around tight corners when one wheel loses traction, but I haven't disabled mine.

Put in switch

I went ahead and put in a switch. I couldn't get the steering wheel dance to work on my 07.




the dash picture is with the switch on. The engine lite goes off when I start the motor.
