    With a 30 amp fuse used by those devices, you can see that it is physically impossible for them to be really 40 amp units. If you watch them on a gauge, you can see the real output from them. Most i have seen is 23.3 amps at full power @17volts.. The Race ones at @20volts still only put out about 24amps at full dial setting. Putting in a 40amp fuse makes no change to that output.

    What would be wonderful is, if a bap manufacture company would make an actual pwm setup.

    A perfect bap, It would see pwm and pass it thru to the output as pwm still. Just at a higher Voltage. OR it would go to full on and set it at a higher voltage instead of pwm once a set value was met, like 70% and higher pwm..

    With a 80 amp reserve of power. ;>

    The Msd BP is working good and my fp does not drop below 60. I know the mustang crowd uses the bp's and I'm pretty sure they have pwm pumps? The only problem I'm having is the service stabilitrak light is on? If this could be fixed our fuel systems are good for alot of power.

    Yes, that happens, apparently in some high hp, manual, Vs, like mine.

    Sh*t, I'll seriously PAY someone for the answer to this mystery...

    Yeah, you don't need to do a search. You need to read your owners manual.

    1st off, you're doing it wrong.

    Here you go.

    1 hit on the steering wheel, TC is off, Stabilitrak is on.
    2 hits to the steering wheel, TC is off, Stabilitrak ir reduced(aka Competitive Driving Mode)
    1 hit AND THEN hold button down 3-5 seconds and everything will be off.

    On mine, for it ALL to be off, I push and hold for 5-7 seconds, and it says "Stabilitrak Off". One action only. My car has spun around on a track when it's all off then, so nothing is controling it.

    Maybe you should try again you don't need to hit it once and THEN hold it down. Just hold it down for 5 seconds and it will say the exact same thing: "Stabilitrak Off"

    Resurrecting this thread...Has anyone done an install of the Kenne Bell BAP with no issues or resolved their issues?

    I am unable to locate installation instructions ANYWHERE. The closest I have seen is Lingenfelters version for a 2010-2012 SS Camaro N/A or S/C'd version.

    In that scenario, the BAP is connected to the FSCM wiring (Fuel System Control Module) wiring in the right rear trunk area. Any other suggestions or different results?

    I did the install on an M5 and a Mustang, so I'm not afraid to go all in and give it a try, but there are some of you that have had to deal with this issue before...

    Thank you ahead of time.

    Steve

    Re: Turning off traction control, stability control completely, totally not what u th

    Hey bro, did you ever figure this out? I'm having the exact problem with my 04. It's really annoying and I'm pretty much out of ideas... I'm sure you're driving something else by now as this is an old post but I thought I'd give this a shot. I already tried the fuses and practically tore the car apart trying to turn the stabilizer off, COMPLETELY... no luck. I know the routine, hold the button down for 8 seconds until screen says "Stabilizer off" but again, no luck. I see the same routine being told to you on here but I was hoping you figured something out.... aside from selling your car or setting it on fire. Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks

    Resurrecting this post again....I have somethings you can try. If your able to tune, HPT etc you can take care of things with tuning. On my Vwagon even with everything turned off, the issue was that I was able to get it out of control but if I want to control the out of control with the throttle it would either go dead or if even a straight plain jane burn out it would steer me to the left and go dead. It was Ridiculous, 5ft burn out. Now if I started to get out of control (spin etc) and let off the throttle the car would continue to spin TC/SC flashing (icon) and I would come to a stop. I could not use the throttle to help. There are parameters for temps in the TC settings to adjust. If wanted I'll post a snap shot. Now the TC/SC still works but takes longer to step on. Once I turn it off I can act like a hooligan all I want without the car wanting to fix itself. The car goes nice and straight when wanting to do a smokey one. On another V that I know had the same issue as I did and my other friend with a manual has no issues at all. Anyway this is how my car acted even with everything off. And yes, I held the button down etc.........



    I haven't tried this on any of the newer cars but when I wanted to have absolutely no aids in driving, Viper style, I would buy 4 wheel sensors and use them as dummies. Tape them up, tie wrap them near the plugs so I could replug in the sensors if I wanted to have TC etc back. Doing this you will have all the fun you want, no need to hold buttons etc. No flashing lights on the dash. On your 04 this option should not be a problem. You just have to be more disciplined when driving.

    Happy Motoring
