    Question; do the earlier V's display competitive driving mode on the screen? I hit mine twice and the light stays on and I definitely feel like the V is in the mode but I've never seen it come up on my screen. I've got an 05.

    I have an 06 and yes it displays everytime. Make sure your radio/DIC is "on" as that might make a difference. For example you can't access the 'info' DIC options if the radio is off.... might be worth a try.

    Do you have a CD playing? Seems one time I was showing my brother a little "sideways" and it wouldn't show the comp mode screen. Stopped the CD player or something of the sort if I remember right and it showed it.

    Yes, my 04 shows everything on the screen.

    Damn. Mine shows when traction control or stability control engage (while getting sideways) but never shows competitive driving mode. I'm pretty sure it works though.

    To clarify:
    It says "Compedtitive driving mode engaged" on the NAV and you have to hit "OK" to clear it.
    Then when in Comp mode, if stability control kicks in it still just says "Stability Control Activated" which goes away by itself after 2-3 seconds.

    It's in the shop right now, but I'll try these suggestions.

    My comp mode and dic control work perfect.

    But does anybody know why there are two TC buttons(one on the steering wheel and one in the glove box)? I've never touched the one in the glove box.

    I've tried this like 100 times and I get nothing. sounds like maybe the NAV was replaced.

    My guess is that the normal CTS may not have the steering wheel button, and instead of removing it on the V they just added another one.

    They perform exactly the same function.

    I messed with my comp mode and regardless if I push the button twice real fast or delayed it always went to comp mode.

    So, does anybody know if there is a hard reset for the nav or anything like that so that I can get the screen to display CDM?

    Also, when I feel like entering CDM I push the TC button twice and the light stays on. I sure feel like its in CDM but I guess it could just be in TC off mode. Any opinions on this; if it wasn't going into CDM on the second push of the button, wouldn't the TC light actually turn off rather than staying on?

    Confusing last paragraph I know but hoping someone can decipher this.

    Thanks

    There is no difference in driving when in Comp Mode. It just allows you to get a little sideways without the stability control kicking in. Have you tried holding the button in for 10-15 seconds to see if it will show Stability System OFF.

    Yes I have and it does turn the stability system off. But it still doesn't display Competitive Driving Mode. I'm stumped.

    It's confirmed, my NAV was programed for a CTS and not a CTS-V. It's no problem to turn on the comp mode now.
