    wierd traction control problem!!!

    i noticed when i press my traction control button, across my dash, it says "traction controll off" so i know its off...and this allows me to spin my tires ...well i floor it and i dont...

    but when i press my traction control on..it goes across my screen saying "traction control on"...and i floor it, and i spin my tires...

    i thought it was suppossed to be the opposite...so im really confused now, and im wondering if its messed up. anyone know?

    Nope, it's working fine!
    The transmission will start out in 2nd gear with the TC off to prevent transmission damage.

    Well, I only charge $45 for diagnostics!

    I can't believe they would charge you to solve that simple problem! That's something that I don't think is in the owners manual, but should be!

    It turns it off to save the differential.. I, however, am going to figure out a way to rewire it so that it can't disable 1st gear with it off :> It greatly reduces track times if I have the slightest bit of differential spin
