Chrysler 2007 Pacifica Automobile User Manual

ESP has the following operating modes:
ESP On This is the normal operating mode for ESP.
Whenever the vehicle is started the ESP system will be
in this mode. This mode should be used for almost all
driving situations. ESP should only be turned to
“Partial Off” for specific reasons as noted below.
Partial Off This mode is entered by momentarily
depressing the “ESP Control Switch”. When in “Partial
Off” mode, the TCS portion of ESP, except for the
“limited slip” feature described in the TCS section, has
been disabled and the “ESP/TCS Indicator Light” will
be illuminated. All other stability features of ESP
function normally, with the exception of engine power
reduction. This mode is intended to be used if the
vehicle is in deep snow, sand or gravel conditions and
more wheel spin than ESP would normally allow is
required to gain traction. To turn ESP on again, mo-
mentarily depress the “ESP Control Switch”. This will
restore the normal “ESP On” mode of operation.
NOTE: To improve the vehicle’s traction when driving
with snow chains, or starting off in deep snow, sand or
gravel, it may be desirable to switch to the “Partial Off”
mode by pressing the ESP switch. Once the situation
requiring ESP to be switched to the “Partial Off” mode is
overcome, turn ESP back on by momentarily depressing
the “ESP Control Switch”. This may be done while the
vehicle is in motion.
