Disabling Traction Control




What do you think about this video?

neshra54: Thanks a million man. I am a smog tech for the past 11 years in LA. I have seen it all, but today i had this 2001 jetta equipped with ASR with no button. I was NOT able to dyno test it because it was keep braking on me. I was the fifth shop customer was trying with no success until i saw your video and it worked perfectly. You just made me $ 68 that i was about to loose due to not being able to smog that car. Awesome video.

Paul Lapre: Would you know anything about accomplishing the same goal with an automatic 2001 Honda Accord? Or. Know of reference? And. Will it ruin the car if this thing isn't disengaged? Thanks for your help!

Leigh McPhee: Dude your a idiot your over revving the engine and your wasting rubber idiot.

milldabeast519: toyota yaris ,stupid drift....lol

XholdstillX: Sorry for the late reply. I haven't been on youtube for a while. I didn't find a fuse for traction control ONLY. Which is why I didn't even try and experiment that way. Most fuses were for multiple systems. If I remember right there was a fuse for the brake/abs system and the Electronic differential lock.

///M Power CDFP: "might" for performance driving you want those aids off. or if you already can control your car well

juan5104carlos: why your cars doesnt have a esp botton for the track off?

Mikey Agnew: This is odd, I always assumed that MK4's that didn't have the button didn't have the system.

///M Power CDFP: i only have to press a button to disable traction, stability, and abs on my car

Peter Nolan: @XholdstillX cheers i will give it a try found and up date results

cars18atwork: you wrong about no traction control so learn a bit

norbert dudkiewicz: facking awesome thanks

Volnik: nicw vid

adammdamann: if the light is not on, your esp(which is stability control and traction control, which is controlled by your ABS) is in automatic mode. if you hit the gas to hard, or go into a corner too fast, and the light blinks at you, then its active. if you hit the ESP button and the light comes on all the time, your esp is inactive, but your anti lock is still active

Sayyed Kumayl Abbas Naqavi.: hey i have abs light on in my toyota yaris after a stupid drift,please advice how to turn it off ?

Sayyed Kumayl Abbas Naqavi.: @XholdstillX yeah thanks a lot i got my yaris to a mechanic and the wire was broken.

4wdadventures: I've found in the past, some cars have a fuse for traction control, which you can remove. Does yours have this option?

XholdstillX: How can I help? As far as I could tell, my car was improperly manufactured from the factory. Which is why I didn't have a ASR button. I found the wiring harness behind the dash, ordered a button from a junkyard. Now I have a working ASR button.

jchangtorres: BRother it looks that you know how to play with the electric side of the JEtta!!.. (crazy) however.. I removed the front seat to be clean and unplagged them, to be complete removed. By the time I placed back and reconect plugs (while I was leasing to the radio) and them. I start the car and ride it.. and the FRONT AIRBAG light is on.. can you help me to take the light off.. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME

BIHVR6GTI: wait dont they come witht the button, my vr6 has it hmmm, weird.

compu85: If you don't have an ASR button on a mk4, you don't have traction control. The traction control light has nothing to do with the MAF.

tytig94: Someone suggested t o remove the traction control fuse, I think that might be a better idea because removing the MAF while running can damage the sensor.

jchangtorres: @XholdstillX THANKKK YOUUU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIMEEEEE! I should unplged the batery before. Thank you any way! .. The light will stay there.. however it's under my undertanding that the airbags will still working.. Thank you one more time for your timeeeeee!. Enjoy a great wekk .. and your family staty alway well

XholdstillX: When the dash light is on, it means the vehicle will allow the wheels to slip. When flashing, it means the vehicle is attempting to reduce power in efforts to find traction. When the light is off, it means the system is ready and reacts to wheel slippage.

XholdstillX: I think I have the ONLY MK4 with out a button. But this seems to work. It might work for other cars but I don't know for sure.

NonConformistable: Funny how stupid Americans are, they even have a reminder on the fuel gauge to tell them what petrol their car uses.

Mikey Agnew: What's really funny is that our cars say 'Unleaded fuel only' on the fuel gauge, but leaded fuel hasn't been used in our cars since the 70's. You think that's bad, you should hear our cars ding...when you turn the ignition on, when you open a door. Because we need to be reminded that we're in a car.

Rostam Buicki: it's risky to unplug the maf while the car is on...you can damage that little 200$ sensor...

XholdstillX: @MrFROOODO Check your MAF it could be bad. Why there connected I dunno, but it happened to a friend of mine. His light was on, and it was really the MAF sensor that was bad. Id suggest find a friend with a good one, test on your car, then buy one, there kindof expensive.

XholdstillX: It will throw a CEL if you leave it unplugged.

compu85: I've retrofitted traction control to a couple VWs, including all wiring and the hydraulic module so you tell me what I need to learn. In a Mk4 if there's no button there's no ESP or ASR. You can have EDL though.

MrMattyVicious: Did that fix it? im having the SAME ISSUE as you

aftoxic: my car does the same thing if u unplug the MAF i was screwing around with it one day tryin to figure out if my MAF was bad and thats how i found out that works. im not sure if its safe? im surprized it didnt throw a CEL for ya!

Mike Kostelnik: When I unplug my mass airflow sensor, The glowplug light turns on...

XholdstillX: @syedkumail1 I'd check the wheel speed sensors, chances are you damaged one of those drifting the Yaris. Could be a disconnected wire, broken sensor, or something else. That would be my best guess. You might have to get is scanned as those warning lights don't really tell you much.

XholdstillX: @jchangtorres The air bag light is just an indicator that there's an issue with the Air Bag SRS System. Since you removed the one or both of the front seats, which contain airbags in them they are probably not being recognized by the ECU. I would make sure you connected all the wires up correctly under the seats, and the connectors are not damaged. If they are both good. Possibly disconnecting the battery for a few minutes MAY clear the light assuming everything is connected.

XholdstillX: I believe it's just traction control that the button controls. You don't want to disable stability or ABS. Those might save you from a crash.

Vinicius Padilha: que bosta

Leon Sidik: hahaha...smart! :D

danielmad: i don't think you turned off your esp, all you did was turn off your MFA sensor, and what the light is, is a engine code light, because the sensor was disconnected.

fordwindsor351: that just seems crazy for in my van, its a simple push of a button to shut it off

Kenneth Letson: unplugging a maf while cars running is a good way to lose a perfactly good maf

Peter Nolan: i have a vw golf 02 1.4 the esp light is light up on the dash and i cant turn it of any ideas

Dale Parkinson: thick lady, do not do what he did...
