Default How To: Disabling AdvanceTrac

My roommate got a 2010 FX4 with the AdvanceTrac system (Traction control/Stability control) and the Only way to disable it is to press and hold the traction control button. If you press and let go, the TC will turn off and the icon will light up in the cluster. This does NOTHING, because stability is still on and screws everything up. So you must press and hold to make everything disable.

1) Press and hold the TC button
2) The TC icon will light up on the dash
3) Hold button until the light shuts off
4) Everything is disabled

You CAN be moving slowly to do this and it reset when you turn the truck off.

This is all in the owners manual, but I know alot of people dont look through it. So here it is

Default Re: How To: Disabling AdvanceTrac

I have been doing this procedure a majority of the time that I drive. However, after this procedure this morning, I had noticed that AdvanceTrac had remained active when I was stopping at a stop sign and it was very slick at -21 deg C....the brake started to depress and vibrate....weird! I had only driven about a block as I was leaving my house.

At least the above procedure works most of the time. I was hoping that it would work all the time.

Anyone else experience the same?

Dave

Yes, Does anyone know how to completely disable the traction control? Cause holding the button down only works part of the time and its going to get me in more "trouble" then if it wasnt there at all.

that pedal sensation is Anti-lock brakes which can be disabled by pulling two fuses.
