    disable traction control

    Is it possible to turn off the traction control? I think it is just the abs right? In my snow covered drive the thing sounds like the abs is grinding away with barely any throttle. When I say grinding I don't mean a bad thing just the abs continued pulse of the breaks.

    And I want to do big burn-outs hehe!!

    If anyone knows how or were to find how to disable the traction that is info the owner should have at his command whether its a cadillac or a corvette. But the latter has buttons for this.

    Fleetwoods have that button in the glove box if we want to spin our right-rear. You may want to think about a set of used Factory Service Manuals. Not sure what goes on in an ETC, but $50-$80 and you would learn bunches about your rig.

    I have thought about doing the same thing. Im fairly certain yanking off the wheel speed sensor cable will do the trick. However I would like to know a better way of doing it.

    My 93 Allante doesn't have a button to turn the traction control off. You have to go through the onboard diagnostics. It's better to do it that way instead of disconnecting this or pulling that out.
    It has the Northstar system, so it'll probably shut down the same way in other Northstars. You go into diagnostics and pull up PCM override. Go to PS24 which is Traction Control Disable. Hit the Warmer button to disable it and then exit Diagnostics. You're done. The system will automatically enable when you turn the engine on 12 times. That's the safe way do disable the traction control.
