Re: Disabling AdvanceTrac problem

I'm encountering that with advance trac off. (Holding down traction control button for ten sec) after a few seconds of spinning and sliding around on snow and ice the traction control light starts flashing and power is limited? Something wrong with my truck or is this just the way it is?

Re: Disabling AdvanceTrac problem

And I'm running with tuning off a mini maxx. That's why I didn't post in general discussion. Anyone else with this issue?

What you are saying is that when you push the traction control off button and proceed to slide around it doesn't jump in as fast but it will eventually jump in? I'm pretty sure that's how the newer TC systems work you can turn it "off" but it isn;t REALLY off



I had a Jeep with TC and the only way to get the TC to fully turn off was to hold the button down while in 4-lo I have no problem with traction control on a vehicle, because unfortunately some idiots out there need it, but it should have a simple ON-OFF switch, no in between bull crap.

Re: Disabling AdvanceTrac problem

Yes exactly. With out turning it off can hardly spin tires without brakes being applied and power reduction. But with it off seems I have about 3-5 secs before it chirps in and stops the fun. I can't even do a full donut with the rear end locked up before getting power taken away. Sucks

I've found that if you want to mess around without the nanny, you need to 1 lock the rear or put it in 4 wheel drive, 2 hold the advance trac button for 5 sec or until it flashes. If not in this order the truck will revert back to advance trac on without telling you.

Re: Disabling AdvanceTrac problem

You can only turn the advance track off up to a certain speed, I think its 45 mph, then it will automatically turn back on.
