Electronic Stability Control

New Jeep JKU purchased last Monday. Intermittant ESC light on the dash which disables the cruise control and who knows what else. Not sure the dealer has a handle on it. Ordered parts - be in in a week.

Oh, and the Jeep has a 3" Mopar lift installed with 35" tires. Wants to drift a little to the right going down the highway.

Any one with thoughts on this. I would appreciate your input.

One possibility for your issue:

A lift will move the axles to the side a little, which will displace the steering wheel a little.
The steering wheel being off a little will make the ESP system think you are entering a skid. It will take what it thinks is the necessary action.

At the very least, you need to have the steering wheel re-centered by adjusting the drag link. Adjustable track bars would be good, too, to put the axles back in place.

3" does need an adjustable track bar and at least cams to adjust the front axle if not full arms. I'm not sure if the Mopar kit includes those pieces or not.
