2006 Chrysler 300 Limited. ESP/BAS light is on, won't turn off. I have tried the suggestions found on the web. Tried the "reset" of turning the wheel all the way left, then right, then to center. No codes stored based on "key on-key off" three times. Disconnected the battery and reconnected. Tried pulling fuses to EVIC. Nothing in particular has transpired - no accident, etc.

Any suggestions on where to look? Car only has 13K miles but was purchased in October 2005 so I don't believe this would be covered under the warranty.

Sounds like it might be time to invest in a fairly nice OBD-II Code reader capable of handling extended manufacturer codes. I only have one OBD-II-capable Chrysler product so I haven't got that route yet either, but if you're planning on keeping the car for any long length of time then $200-$300 might be a worthwhile investment.

An OBDII computer that reads the codes from those modules might be prohibitively expensive.

It could very well be a simple part like a wheel speed sensor. The reason you can't turn it off is likely because the fault is still occurring. You'll probably need to bite the bullet and get is scanned. Of course, you could try cleaning the sensors at each wheel too if you'd remove each tire. It's a gamble if you want to invest that time before investing money.

Or you could need something as simple as a software update
