You're in Houston... go to another dealer if in a rush.
My stop start never works unless I drive really far now- an obvious bad battery issue. Not fully charging so the ESS won't work. year old 12k miles.
I have never been inclined to get it repaired as its inconsequential- and I'm one of the few who like ESS!
When I bring it in for the most recent recall, I'll have them address it.
But implying ESS not working is a threat to your children is ridiculous...
You should be much more worried about the other issues like stalling and the new V15 recall Chrysler has no parts for where your wheel can come off LOL!
Pick your battles or sell the car.
Ironically, its still my favorite van of all time!
