Default JK Wrangler ESP Disable (CrazyNuts Mod)

I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS OR REPERCUSSIONS CAUSED BY THIS MOD. DO THIS MOD AT YOUR OWN RISK AND IT IS INTENDED FOR OFF ROAD USE ONLY

So the flash from JEEP wasn't enough for your off road needs?
ESP still kicking in when it's not needed?
BAS interfering like the Political Correctness Brigade?

Well here is your answer, the ESP Disable switch (aka CrazyNuts Mod)

ESP, BAS, TC and ABS is dictated by one module, the DYNAMICS SENSOR. If this sensor becomes faulty, or is disconnected, your ABS, TC, ESP and BAS will fail to function.

This sensor can be found in your centre console just in front of the rear cup holders on the driver's side.

Here is what you need to do

1) Unbolt the 4 screws that hold the centre console.

2) Locate the PURPLE/LIGHT BLUE wire. Be careful as there is a PURPLE/DARK BLUE wire right next to it and they look almost identical. I'd be checking twice, cutting once, here.

3) Check if you cut the right wire, turn the ignition to ON and see if the ABS, TC and ESP/BAS lights come on and stay on after 10 seconds. If they do then you got the right wire.

4) Extend the cut Purple/Light blue wire by soldering some longer wires to reach a switch (polarity is irrelevant). Attach it to a simple ON/OFF switch anywhere in your vehicle. You can opt to make this concealed, but really, why bother?

Please note: While operating the vehicle with safety features turned ON, and you flick the switch it WILL disable the safety features on the move. Unfortunately it will not work in reverse. You will have to turn OFF the vehicle, flick the switch and then start it again for the safety features to return.

EDIT: As my original pictures were hosted on a private account which is no longer active, I have "acquired" these from the internet, but the process is the same.

JK-Forum.com have copied my mod and posted up on their site, for anyone wanting to reference their instructions/pics please see link below.

CrazyNuts ....

I'm having a problem working out which is the best part of your post ....

The pics and procedures or ......

The well worded comment in orange ......





Just one thing ... when you have the module switched off ... do your lattes in the cupholders go cold quicker ????

Could be of vital interest and importance to some ....

Yes, very important. You have to conduct the procedure correctly. Kind of like the steering wheel trick with the ESP.

If you do it facing south, you will be in -28 deg territory and I would imagine the soldering iron would have a hard time getting up to correct temp. Not to mention you will make the wires look like they have been in a boxing ring with Edward Scissorhands.

U have changed since i last seen u Chris, back when u had the tj it had to be perfect and the best of everything, now your hacking into the electronics and drilling holes in the dash of your brand new jk.......I like it

How in the hell did u find the control box under there? Is that the power in wire?

I would only flick the switch with the key off, u don't want spikes going through your electrics. I think u can buy special switches for electronics from dicksmiths?
