Sorry to steal this bit of the thread but while we're on the topic of the programmable steering wheel buttons, I programmed one of them to toggle TC but I'm wondering if there was a way to program a button to toggle Sport mode? I know it's not in the DIC personalization menu but I had this slight hope that someone had done it at some point, just cause it'd be that much cooler than reaching down to hit the button near the shifter :)
When programming TC I didn't see that option but like you it would be neat to have the two on the steering wheel.

It's the yellow button on the left side of your glove box. You can also disable the Stabiltrac there also. The four buttons on your steering wheel are programmable. You can use one to disable TC but not the stabiltrac.

:welcome: Welcome to the Forum.
Robert-
Is there a button to disengage stabilitrac? Is it the same button as TCS, or is it a separate button?
Thanks

Scratch that.. just had to read on for like 2-3 more posts... now I gotta try it out!!

I had an idea the other day while playing with the TC button. Probably wouldn't be too much of a hassle to rewire the trunk release and TC buttons to switch their poritions. Even if you didn't actually switch the buttons, but I think you could do that too.


My 72 Caddy had the trunk release in the glove box, and having the tC button easily accessible on the driver's door would be nice. Just have to run wiring extensions through the door over to the glove box.

I can understand Spanlish because of my PR girlfriend, but I can not understand this. Can you re-type this?

Since we have some misunderstandings about programming the option...

FROM THE MANUAL:

Reconfigurable Steering Wheel
Controls (SWC) (CTS)
If your vehicle has this feature, it allows you to
customize the four steering wheel controls to work
with the OnStar®, the climate controls, audio,
and traction control systems.
The controls for this
feature are located on
the left spoke of
the steering wheel.
If your vehicle has the base audio system, do the
following:
1. Access the main menu of the audio system by
pressing the TUNE/SEL (SELECT) knob
located at the lower right of the audio system.
2. Scroll through the menu by turning the knob.
1
3. When SETUP appears on the display, press
the knob once to select it.
4. Scroll through the SETUP menu by turning
the knob.
5. When CONFIGURE SWC KEYS appears on
the display, press the knob once to select it.
6. Scroll through the buttons (1, 2, 3 or 4). Press
the knob to select the desired number.
7. Choose a new function for the control by
scrolling through the list of available functions.
8. Once you have highlighted your choice, press
the knob once to select it.
The control you selected is now programmed
with the function you selected.
9. Press the CLR (CLEAR) button to exit each
menu. To program another control, repeat the
procedure.

If your vehicle has the Navigation system, do the
following:
1. Press the MAIN button located to the lower
left of the display.
2. Press the multi-function button next to the
Setup prompt at the right of the display.
3. Press the multi-function button next to Prog
SWC located at the right of the screen.
4. Turn the TUNE/SEL knob to scroll through the
available functions.
5. Once the function desired is highlighted, press
and hold the multi-function button next to the
control you want to program (1, 2, 3 or 4).
The buttons are located at the right of
the display.
When a control is successfully programmed,
the function you selected will appear next
to the number of the control at the right of the
display.
6. Press the multi-function button next to the
Back prompt to exit each menu. To program
another control, repeat the procedure.
When a control is programmed with a function,
that function cannot be used with any other control.
It becomes available again only when another
function is programmed to the control.
