The Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) module may have been programmed incorrectly on certain vehicles equipped with a 3.0L diesel engine, hydraulic brake boost compensation and Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Chrysler states. If the driver commands the ESC to be off, and then cycles the ignition key off and back on within 10 seconds, the 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.
To fix the issue, dealers will reprogram the ABS module.
The company says it believes 13 units were affected.
