Electronic Stability Control Extremely easy to start

Hello everyone

i got 2017 JKU 4' lift 35KO2

Esc is very easy to start when it is bumpy on the highway, is this a normal phenomenon? Did it happen before it not lift?

My English is not good, I hope everyone can understand

That’s not normal, did you get an alignment after the lift was installed?

After install of the lift did you recenter the steering wheel?

4” is a lot of lift. I’d second checking to see if steering wheel is centered. Also make sure you don’t have a stretched wheel speed sensor. As Terry mentioned, you may want to list what kind of lift? A lift this high might need more attention and/or components to do it right.

That's what happened to me, dodge man. I hit something on a trail and it knocked my steering out of center and the ESC was constantly kicking in. Sometimes the driving was ok, sometimes it was almost un-drivable and sometimes it just sucked but I could at least go. I didn't know the ESC was paying not only attention to the wheel sensors, but also the steering position. Centering the steering wheel fixed it all.

In addition to centering the steering wheel make sure that the drag link and track bar are as parallel as possible. If the drag link was flipped, put on top of the knuckle, and the track bar is still attached in the original location on the axle it can cause bump steer which can also activate traction control.

mine does the same thing... 17' JKU 4 inch mopar lift, jks trackbar, geo brackets from aev on 17 inch wheels with 35 inch tires.

sometimes it scares the hell out of me when I'm not expecting something to happen. ive double checked all speed sensors, alignment done a few times to thoroughly go over it. and it has a straight wheel. not too sure what the problem is.

Amazes me how many shops don't seem to know how to do this or take the time to do it. It only takes 5-10 minutes. You can do it yourself in the driveway or a parking lot.

It's beyond me, that a reputable alignment shop, would do an alignment and not center the steering wheel WTF?

Wait, so they did NOT center your steering wheel?! Jeez
No offense, but one would figure you’d notice your wheel was off, and immediately turn back around.
Good news is, if your steering wheel isn’t centered, it’s an easy fix. I’d probably take it a more competent tech/shop.
