Re: traction control when turning

So I just went and did some circles in an empty parking lot at various low speeds and throttles and the sway bar definitely helped reduce the amount of ESP kicking in. It's still there, but it's noticeably less intrusive to the driving than when I had the stock sway in. I know there's no way to really quantify it, but I'd say it's about half as bad.

Re: traction control when turning

As previously mentioned by someone else, there is a flash for "premature activation" :

Quote:
SUBJECT:
FLASH: ESP System May Prematurely Activate Momentarily When Negotiating A Curve
Or MIL Illumination Due To Diagnostic Trouble Code P0340, P0344 or P0116
OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves selectively erasing and reprogramming the Powertrain Control
Module (PCM) with new software.
MODELS:
2004 - **2007** (HB) Durango
**2007 (HG) Aspen**
**2007 (DR) Ram Truck
2005 - **2007** (WK) Grand Cherokee
2005 - **2006** (WH) Grand Cherokee (International Markets)
NUMBER: 18-014-09 REV. A
GROUP: Vehicle Performance
DATE: November 6, 2009
2006 - **2007** (XK) Commander
2006 - **2007** (XH) Commander (International Markets)
2004 - 2006 (KJ) Liberty
NOTE: **This bulletin applies to the HB/HG/WK/WH/XK/XH/KJ vehicles equipped
with a 3.7L, 4.7L or 5.7L engine (sales code EKG, EVA, EVD, EZB or EZA).**
NOTE: **This bulletin applies to the DR vehicles equipped with a 5.7L engine (sales
code EZB).**
SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
The customer may experience a premature and momentary activation of the Electronic
Stability Program (ESP) system. The premature activation of the ESP system may or may
not be accompanied with the illumination of the ESP indicator lamp located in the
instrument cluster. The customer may experience the momentary ESP system activation
on a “clover leaf” type turn, at speeds of approximately 25 to 40 MPH (40 to 64 KPH). This
could also be described as a lack of throttle response or hesitation. Driving over speed
bumps at a slight angle can also cause the same ESP event accompanied by lack of
throttle response. The customer may also complain of low idle speed.
The customer may also experience MIL for one of the following Diagnostic Trouble Code:
i. P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit - Bank 1 Sensor 1
ii. P0344 - Camshaft Position Sensor Intermittent - Bank 1 Sensor 1
iii. P0116 - Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor Performance
DIAGNOSIS:
Using a Scan Tool (StarSCAN® or DRBIII®) with the appropriate Diagnostic Procedures
available in TechCONNECT, verify all engine systems are functioning as designed. If other
DTC's are present record them on the repair order and repair as necessary before
proceeding further with this bulletin.
If the vehicle operator describes or experiences the Symptom/Condition, perform the
Repair Procedure. If the PCM software is up to date and the above mentioned DTC's are
present then further diagnosis is required.
Im not sure if it fits your description exactly but it would be a good place to start.

Re: traction control when turning

The TSB# is 18-014-09 REV. A

You can mention that you were told about that and that it may or may not apply, You will still get the 1hr checkout authorization up front, and what they end up charging you to flash is on them, ultimately your pcm may be up to date and not require a flash, in which case it will take a diagnosis of the root cause.

I believe you need to be a paying member to add rep... the minimum amount is $5 but well worth it. once you are a paid member you can add rep, give thanks, have a cool avatar and are able to accept a TON more PM's

Re: traction control when turning

Make sure you tell the dealership that you've had the lift on for a while WITHOUT problems,otherwise they will definately blame that right away.

I was about to make a thread about this as it is getting more annoying. Mine does it when going around angled curves. Flat terrain is no problem. I will take it down to the Stealer ship this week and see if they will fix it.
