The ESP was a recall,the dealer will honor that if you havent had it done.The cruise I had the same problem replaced it and its starting to go bad again. I think soon we will find it to be a recurring problem in all sportages.

Should be able to take it apart and take the battery out for 15-30 seconds or longer. Then put it back in. While your at it, you might as well change the battery but doing this will reset it.
