Can't disable stability control after lift

Before I did the lift, it would take about 5 tries to get the steering wheel dance to work to disable the ESM. But now that I have lifted the jeep, I cant get it to work at all.

only once did i get the second charm after turning the wheel 90* right.

I do notice that the button on the steering wheel to select between avg mpg and temp often times don't work when I press the button, meaning I will have to turn the wheel slightly in either direction to get it to work.

Does this mean my clockspring is on the way out and is causing the difficulty in disabling the ESM? I cant believe it should be millimeter specific alignment to get it to disable!

There is snow everywhere here and I want to be able to drift the rear end around without a the Christmas tree lighting up on the dash while keeping abs.

My experience :
Can't fully turn off traction control.
Also, steering wheel buttons can be finicky. Not sure if it's clockspring related, or just crappy buttons

Sounds like maybe a combination of steering wheel centering and clockspring.

my wheel is completely centered when driving down the road. no pull in either direction (unless you count the wind, LOL).

i think i might just try switching the abs power so i can slide around when i want. i already have the switch, just need to wire it in.

copy and paste from autoevolution:


This is apparently called “The steering dance”:

1. Verify that the automatic transmission selector is in the “Park” position, and that a manual transmission is in neutral gear.
2. Shift the transfer case into the 4H range position and ensure parking brake is firmly set.
3. Turn the steering wheel until it is centered and the wheels are pointed straight ahead.
4. Turn ignition on (and optionally start engine to make turning the wheel easier – will work with or without engine running) and wait approximately five (5) seconds for the system bulb check to complete.
5. Turn the steering wheel one-half turn to the right (clockwise).
6. Press and hold the “ESP OFF” button for 7 seconds exactly then release and wait for chime.
7. Turn the steering wheel back to centre, then continue turning the steering wheel one-half turn to the left (counter clockwise).
8. Press and hold the “ESP OFF” button for 7 seconds exactly, release and wait for chime.
9. Turn the steering wheel back to centre.
10. Press and hold the “ESP OFF” button for 7 seconds, release and wait for chime.
11. Cycle the ignition switch to the “OFF” position.
