    I was getting this Alert Message on my 2018 Charger Daytona that I purchased recently.

    I drove/owned for less than 1 week when I got this Alert Message. I brought it back to the Dealer for them to diagnose it. It was not consist when it would pop up, it only stay in the Driver Information Center twice and most of the time, it would "flash" on the screen as I shut the car off, so I ended up taking a Video of it as well.

    The Dealer had my Charger for 2 Weeks as they tried to figure out what was causing this Issue. They called me after the First Week to say that they were having difficulty and they were talking/working with Chrysler on it. Last Friday, they called me and said that Chrysler was sending a Rep out to help the Dealer Technician diagnose this Alert.

    Monday of this week, the Dealer called me back and said my Charger was "ready". They said that I should not get the Alert anymore and if I do, there is going to be a "Fix" in a "Future" Update for this (thanks to the Video and Picture I provided).

    Just an F.Y.I., I am still getting the Alert. The Driver Information Center Picture below is from today.

    I had the same issue happen to me. It happened on two separate occasions. Has not happen anymore. When it did happen it went away really quick. I found a guy on youtube with the same issue. Crappy FCA quality.

    Hmm, wonder if mine will have this issue. Delivery is between 12/14-12/20 at Tyson (I see that's where yours is serviced, too). Here's hoping they have a fix in the next UConnect release.

    Edit: Does your ESC behave improperly when the message is displayed?

    I am hope yours does not have the Issue, but, please post if it does.

    As for if the ESC behaves improperly, I am not sure as this is the first car I have had that has ESC so I am not sure what it should/should not feel like if it was not working properly. I don't have any Issues with driving and the Warning Message usually only flashes in the Driver's Information Center for a second when I shut the car off.

    Interested in the outcome of this thread as I get the same error message from time to time after starting my car. Usually dont feel much difference during driviing and it'll disappear whenever I try to hit the "view details" button.
