I would say no. But what year is this?
If it was serviced it could be a sloppy job of RTV gasket sealent.

Did you do something? Its part of the power train and if you're still in warranty its smart to get it checked out. I am not certain exact where that is from the picture.

So the dealer said it was normal it it's only the stuff they use to seal the module.
They also lubricated the door hinges, they reflash my ESP in order to be able to fully remove the ESP (which is a TBS) and they also changed two rear end links and all this for 50$! :)

So the software was not up to date. They should check that each time you come in. PCM programming. I am not sure what you mean "fully remove ESP"? Electronic Stability light or switch could not be toggled on/off via the console switch.

I wouldn't argue about that charge since the programming time is on them for your vehicle. Very reasonable deal from that dealer (wherever they are).

You can remove the ESP by pressing the switch but when you slip too much the ESP will come on even if it's off. If you press 5 sec on the ESP switch, the ESP is supposed to fully remove. You will hear a chime and ESPOFF will appear where you have the temperature and your mileage. At least that what's the user manual was saying.

So I have search on the Patriot forum and found out that it was a TSB so now it works.

Ok, I am on track now. I remember reading that somewhere and tried that on mine and it does work in the winter. It's needed if going to a long stretch of deep slippery snow or such to allow the wheels to spin. Otherwise the brakes get activated as part of the ESP programming. Dealers should have done the flash update some time ago unless you rarely go in. Well that can be a good thing. There are a few who know me having been in so often.
