ESC Light
I'm guessing it is probably nothing but today I had the ESC light come on and stay illuminated. I stopped, turned the car off, restarted and it went out, I drove about 3 hours home and it's still out.

The circumstances surrounding it were:

I was driving down Mt. Washingtond auto road, it was very steep pavement (average 12% grade, max 22%, estimate 18% where I was at the time), running manually in 1st/2nd gear at about 20mph turning a sharp right right corner, and I might have had sport mode on from earlier. All fluid temps were good. No weird noises, and I don't think a tire slipped over one of the road edges. Ran it for codes, none appeared...Just a sensor which went off accidentally or what do you think?

Don't know about the 2014's, but the 2012's ESC light will illuminate when in sport mode.

How did the 3.6 do climbing Mt. Washington?

I don't think it came on w the sport mode, it was the fault light not the system off light, there are two different lights on the 14.

But the 3.6 was great. I often find the tranny to be clunky and slow on normal roads-it came alive on those steep inclines and turns. It was more then enough w that 8 speed.

Oh, I didn't realize it was the fault light.

Happy to hear the 3.6L/8-speed performed so well.
