I can turn the T/C off but if you hit the buttom again it just cycles the T/C on and off. I know it's gone into competitive mode before so I don't know what's up. My preferred dealer is out of commission until January or so. Anyone have any suggestions?

Check your TPS. All of the sensors need to be working on all four tires.

BINGO One tire sensor is not working so that's what it must be. Thanks.:worship:

you're lucky you found that solution. Every once in a while, my computer goes apeshit and won't let me into competition mode. I restart the car, and it's fixed. It seems to be posessed. GM electrical gremlins at work...

Lets see they were under water, got looted, and most of the shop walls were knocked over, so January is being optimistic.

I thought my TPS would fix this problem since one was out after a visit 8 weeks ago or so. They fixed one sensor and then another went out and they didn't have any more. I get that one fixed so they are all working and it didn't fix my problem. I also have my Nav unti replaced at that visit 8 weeks ago so I think it may be the entire unit as mine does they exact same thing.
I plan to bring it in soon. AGAIN!

I had my nav unit replaced and mine is doing the same thing. What is the fix?

Lance,
You need to call BK. They didn't update your radio with the Tech II when they replaced it. Got mine back yesterday and have the same problem. Give her a call. I have already given them the info they need to fix the problem.

Maybe this is the same problem I've been having. Had my CD changer/nav unit replaced maybe a month ago or so. Comp mode hasn't been popping up on-screen since then. Didn't even notice it until now. So can the dealer do this "Tech 2 Update"? And what exactly is it?

When you replace the radio in a V, the tech has to let the radio know it's in a V. Otherwise, it (the radio) thinks it's in a regular CTS... So you can't get into competitive mode... It's not a big deal to program, just have to have a Tech II to do it...

Thanks, After I had posted this, I did a search and found the issue and had contacted BK. I just talked to her. Thanks all

So do I just call my service guy and let him know I'm coming in for this update? I hope they can do it quickly and painlessly at the dealer..

The funny thing is that I can get to the SWC menu now. I bet when they are done, it will be unavailable.

SAME HERE. Very good point, I didn't think about this earlier. Geez. Stupid traction control keeps kicking in...

Yeah, they should be able to do it quickly... It only takes a few minutes once the Tech II is hooked up to the car...

Correct... Once it's programmed for the car the Prog SWC button will not be available..
