Done!!!!!!! :)

Ok, I just did this cleaning mod on my ESM, hopefully it is the issue. I cleared the CEL, and drove around some of the hilly streets that seems to trigger it more often and nothing. I am keeping my fingers crossed!!
Yesterday when I was pulling out of Costco, my truck went into the limp mode and I couldn't get out of the parking lot since the way out has a small hill. I had like 10 cars behind me and I was not very happy. It did take like 10 seconds for it to kick out of limp mode and away I went.

Also thank you all for the pics and disassembly instructions....VERY much appreciated and if not, it would have been at the dealer with a bunch of guys running all kinds of tests, flashes etc etc and then to come to some unkown conclusion!!

Yes I'm digging up an older thread but this one saved my bacon.

My wife pulled out of the garage yesterday morning just to have the Jeep go into limp mode. All gear icons lit up, hard shifting, and a CEL. I was dreading pulling the entire N2O setup out, swapping tires back over to stock, and going to the dealership. Up here Lithia Jeep is INFAMOUS for shotty work and using any excuse to void warranty.

Very thankful for the OP of this thread and those of you who added pictures and directions. Did it just like instructed, Jeep runs like a top again. Thank you.

hey guys, i work in the audio industry so we have a lot of units that are controlled by the same type of conductive plastic/carbon compound controllers.

this is the stuff you want to use and it will last forever with a little cleaning now and then.

i do mastering so now so they're custom consoles usually. i like to use some 409 mixed with water to clean those first with q tips. then just water on a q tip to rinse it. then dry it with a dry q tip, then apply the fader lube with...a q tip.

if you use a contact cleaner it's going to eventually eat through that conductive carbon and ruin it completely.

Cool bro!!!! The reason I asked is cuz I use to fix AMS Neve Logic 1, and Log 3 audio consoles and also Digi Design D-Command audio consoles with Pro Tools... I don't work on them now, but mostly work on Avid Media Composer, and maintain our 128 TB of storage on a ISIS with Interplay... Cool stuff bro!
