Default How to turn off your traction control

FYI new gen coupe buyers, just spoke to a tech in the know and heard how to turn off traction control completely. when you hit the traction control button, turns down traction control, not all the way off. when you turn the car into the on position without starting it, then turn it off, then start the car... it's off.

just an fyi to ppls that are passionate about the cars.

Can you quote a source? The HMA service information that I found shows that a simple push of the button turns it off.

i doubt this is true, when you turn the car all the way off and back on, it resets the computer.

Doesn't matter whether it's true of not. It's good advice. Turn off traction control BEFORE actually starting it up. Get in, get the car to come on to where the dials come on, hit the ESC/traction control switch, start the car, and drive away without the limiting devices in plays. A good practice that I'll be sure to use.

Thanks.

Turn the car off, then to the on position without starting, then on, don't turn off from there. I don't have a source thats referable because it's not supposed to ever be fully off, so it's not documented, I found this from a tech, and its worked when I tried it a few days ago. As is the case on many cars, Toyota, Honda are two that are common, when the system is off, it's not off, it's just turned down. This turns it off fully.

How does this work with the push button start? I haven't see/used it yet so I don't know..

don't push the brake, hit the button twice to turn the car 'on' (no foot on the brake and once is accessory, twice is on) then push the brake and hit start again. Our car is a V6 Track, in Nordschleife Gray so with the push button start.

Summary of how to turn traction control FULLY off (correct me if I'm wrong):

With key'ed ignition:
1.Turn the key to the 'on' position without starting the car
2. Hit the Traction control button, so that Traction Control is off
3. Start the car, and drive away.
4. If you happen to turn the car all the way off, repeat from step 1

With the keyless iginition:
1. Get in the car with the key in your pocket, or inside the car where it needs to be
2. Without touching anything else (brake, etc), hit the 'Start' button twice to turn the car 'on' but without actually starting the car.
3. Hit the Traction control button, so that Traction Control is off
4. Hit the 'Start' button (with your foot on the brake) to actually Start the car, and drive away.
5. If you happen to turn the car all the way off, repeat from step 1

Don't thank me, thank Jase, he brought the info to us, I just put into an understandable, step by step, format.

You're welcome, though.

This should be a sticky.

This is pointless. It is now well known that Traction Control is completely off when it says that it is

My father has the same system in his Sonata and trust me when it says it's off; it's offfff

Hma Service confirms the same for the Genesis Coupe.

Well, as soon as my brother receives his car, I will be trying it both ways. Gives me an excuse to burn up some of his tires.

All the same, thanks jase for the insight.

When I hit the traction control button in my bimmer, it's completely off. I went through my 1st set of tires rather quickly proving it.

umm, NO, trust me i drive a honda, and when you hit the VSA or Traction button to turn it off, its off, ive done enough burnouts to warm up my tires with 1st and 2nd gear burnouts to know this....

Yeah, but can you really do anything in an R35 without voiding the warranty? The first time into the dealer for service the ECU would snitch about all the fun we had together.

This will be very good news if it works! I remember reading a review about it only turning off something like 20% according to the writer of the article and that when Hyundai was drifting the car they had to pull the TCS fuse.

This is one of those things that I somehow doubt will be done until someone opens the ECU and reads the code... lol
