Issue

On certain vehicles equipped with a 3.0L diesel engine, hydraulic brake boost compensation and Electronic Stability Control (ESC), the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) module may have been programmed incorrectly. If the driver commands the ESC to be off, and then cycles the ignition key off and back on within 10 seconds, the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) module may not reset the ESC system back to active status. If the system is not active, the vehicle may be inadvertently driven without the ESC system activated, which may increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the ABS module. Note: Should this occur, the driver would be alerted that the ESC system is not active by the "ESC OFF" warning light illuminating.
