On 4x4 vehicles, the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) may not turn off when the "ESP off" button is pressed. Our technicians tell us a software update for the anti-lock brake system (ABS) control module is available for this concern.

    ESP light would not extinguish. Took to dealer, who performed a software program change affecting the anti-lock brake system (ABS) and repaired the problem. Also performed a software upgrade available from Chrysler for the drive train module.

    Oops, I posted too soon. When starting the car later the same day, the ESP light is back on and cannot be extinguished . . . back to the Jeep service dealer.
