  1. Stability Control ESP

    Electronic Stability Program (ESP) If the vehicle is equipped with ESP, once the battery is reconnected, the SteeringAngle Sensor (SAS) needs to be calibrated. The SAS requires calibration anytime the battery or an ABS (ESP) component has been disconnected for any length of time. To calibrate, perform the following: 1) Start the engine. 2) Center the steering wheel. 3) Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left until the internal stop in the steering gear is met, then turn the wheel all the way to the right until the opposite internal stop in the steering gear is met. 4) Center the steering wheel. 5) Stop the engine.Google "dodge charger ESP/BAS Light" A bunch of stuff out there -- apparently this is a know issue... with possible causes too numerous to mention.

  5. 2012 power loss while driving

    Transmission kicks when almost stops , mine has done this since I bought it , worse when I first start out most other time it’s okay . As as for the rest it sounds like the car is going in to limp home mode . As for brakes get get away from factory parts and get good after market rotors and pads. I am done for new pads on the front of mine so I got about 30,000 miles off the front brakes .
  6. Lower front control arm bushings

    Just a little noise mainly over rocky roads . A soft thump and also if I back up over a uneven spot . I also get a bit of noise while going slow over rough roads but I traced it down to brake pads rattling becuse if I put slight pressure on the brakes it stops.
  7. I have a question about the bushing on the front control arm . I am talking about the one at the rear of the control arm where it mounts to to the kmember. What at is the normal amount of play that is allowed with this bushing . Mine moves up and quite a bit . Not enough to hit metal but with a pry bar I can move it up and down a bit
  8. Tick, tick, tick...
