Electronic Shift Module
I have an 06 grand cherokee v6 with about 50k on it. Recently the malfunction indicator light has come on randomly. I had a local garage read it and they said it was the ESM. Brought it to jeep for a "complimentary oil change" they too read the code and said ESM and want almost 700 to fix it. Does anyone know anything about this? is it possible to do myself?
If its a jeep thing I have or will break it at least once
You gotta bring it into the dealership so the ESM can get reflashed. As long as the check engine light is on and the car isnt working right. The dealership has the only tool to fix it or replace it, You should be covered under the powertrain warranty since your under 70k miles.

I believe the ESM is the electronic stability module not shift module, but in any event the dealer is probably your only option. Also your 06 would only have 3/36 factory warranty unless you bought an extended warranty.

Most shift modules work on any model. For instance, I used a module from an 06 WK 2wd on my wife's 07 Commander 4wd QTI and have had ZERO issues with it. I picked it up for 125 from ebay after I saw the dealer price of the unit. simple install no hassles or modification needed.
