HI,

Ok, most low end code readers are not capable of reading stability control fault codes, so I need the brand and model number of yours to verify it is capable of reading them before going further.

The reason is I need to know whether you need it read with proper scan tool to retrieve these codes or whether this is a rare case of no stored codes so I know which direction to go in diagnosing this

it wasn't my reader. it was at autozone which was near where I had the issue. i am on trip and not near my home.
Jeep Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 4 months ago

HI,

Ok, I am familiar with the one they use and it only reads engine/transmission/emissions codes. It is not capable of reading electronic stability power codes. This requires an advanced diagnostic scan tool, which unfortunately means you will need to take it to a shop for the codes to retreived

Possible causes are the ESP control module, steering angle sensor, yaw rate sensor, front or rear differential module, low rear differential fluid, speed sensor, or internal fault in rear differential

Unless you are driving where there is snow/ice or heavy rain, with the ESP turned off, it is safe to drive

what causes the bucking or vibration? it still does it with the esp turned off but it doesnt cause a check engine light? thanks eric.
Jeep Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 4 months ago

HI,

Ok, does it happen at steady speed or when accelerating

sorry to sound like a dumba** but I'm not positive. i was traveling rush hour on a highway so i doubt it was a steady speed.
Jeep Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 4 months ago

HI,

Ok, that could be torque converter, bad ujoints on driveshaft, internal issue in the rear differential

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Jeep Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 4 months ago

I would recommend having a shop inspect it at this point rather than continue your trip. In addition to the possibility of leaving you stranded, continued driving could increase the repair bill if this is either from the torque converter or rear differential
