    How was this confirmed and what did you do to fix it?

    Took it to the dealer and they reprogrammed it for a cts-v, not a cts.

    $120, but I guess for just not that. I had a service vehicle come on, on the NAV and they had to reprogram it for that also. They said it was programed wrong and for a CTS also.

    Re: How do I turn on competition mode?

    So...am I the only one thinking here that competitive driving mode is worthless? If you track your car (and are any good at driving) you will quickly learn that the stability control is holding you back. So just hold it down until it says stability off and go play. You will never truly know the limits to the car with it on. Spin or win!

    Also, someone said in the second post that if your TPMS sensors are out that you cannot turn off stability control? That is a load of crap. My track wheels and tires have no TPMS in them and stability is never on when at the track, and it never kicks on.

    I'm sure it is worthless, but I had other stuff going on too.

    Do you think it is interfering with out displaying anything on the dash? In my limited experience running in Comp mode at the road course I'm not sure I remember it coming on at all.

    Some of us don't mind losing if it means driving home.

    As for not turning off stabilitrak, its absolutely true. But after driving with no sensors for about 30-40 miles, it allows all off. I used to drive to autocrosses on my slicks to heat them up and get stabilitrak full off...
