Traction control ?

Is there a fuse to make the traction control stop. I was in the sand and it kept coming on and ticking me off. As well on some curves here in Houston the light will come on and my jeep starts to break. So annoying.

Turn it off:

From the manual:
Quote:
Partial Off
This mode is entered by momentarily pressing the ESC
OFF switch.
When in Partial Off mode, the TCS portion of ESC has
been disabled and the “ESC Activation/Malfunction
Indicator Light” will be illuminated.
All other stability features of ESC function normally. This
mode is intended to be used if the vehicle is in deep
snow, sand, or gravel conditions and more wheel spin
than ESC would normally allow is required to gain
traction. To turn ESC on again, momentarily press the
ESC OFF switch. This will restore the normal “ESC On”
mode of operation.
NOTE: To improve the vehicle’s traction when driving
with snow chains, or starting off in deep snow, sand, or
gravel, it may be desirable to switch to the “Partial Off”
mode by pressing the ESC OFF switch. Once the situation
requiring ESC to be switched to the “Partial Off” mode is
overcome, turn ESC back on by momentarily pressing the
ESC OFF switch. This may be done while the vehicle is in
motion.

'07 may be completely different. I'm working from my '12 and the '12 owner's manual. I just push a button, and it's off.

If you don't have one, you can download a .pdf version of your owners manual from the Jeep website.

When you disable the ESP (button), this icon will light up SOLID-

'07 is on the same panel and has the same icon, but it's to the right. Putting the jeep in 4LO will also shut it off.

That usually is a little too low for sand/light snow-

Good for DEEP snow-

Actually if you are using 4H in sand you should turn ESP completely off. In order to do that, hold the button in for 5 seconds. You will hear a chime and it will read ESP off where your odometer is. This will last until the next time you trun your ignition off/on. ESP will return to the "on" position then.
