    ESC Light

    I recently had a leak coming from my electronic Power Steering reservoir on my 2013 Dodge Charger R/T. I purchased an reservoir replacement kit from RockAuto. To access the reservoir I had to remove the passenger wheel and fender liner. While changing it, I think I damaged my traction control sensor cable. After putting everything back together I had both the ESC and the ABS light on. I ordered all 4 traction control sensor cables and replaced all 4 of them. After replacing them the ABS light went out, but I still have the ESC light on. I am able to use the cruise control due to the light. Does anyone know what might be wrong, or how it can be reset? I tried serveral recommendations about the sequence of starting the car and rotating the steering wheel to reset the position sensors. At this point I am not sure if it has something to do with my power steering or my traction control sensors. Any have any ideas?

    Did you pull any codes or try resetting them with a scanner?

    No check engine light, so no codes unless there is some more advanced scan tool.

    Following to learn. Tell us about the leak, crack, hole? Tell us about it while you look for the other?

    how far did you drive it? you might have to drive it about 15-20 miles to get the light to turn off. Mine stayed on a while after a battery reset and it took a while for it to get its bearings so to speak.

    The leak was just from the seals on the reservoir. Seals are not sold specifically for the reservoir, so the only option is to replace the entire pump, or buy a reservoir kit from Doorman.

    I finally went and had the computer code scanned and I have the following code. ECU = ABS, DTC CODE = C006A-49. DTC DESCRIPTION = Multi-axis Acceleration Sensor-Internal Electronic Failure
