Traction control won't turn off

I have a new 2011 TRD we now have snow on the ground and i have been out play around in it and it seems that even when I turn off the traction control in 2 wheel drive it feels like the front bracks are still braking. The dash lights are showing it is off but it does not feel right I am sure i can hear the abs chattering. Even in 4x4 the TC feels like it is braking the front end. Any feedback would be great. Thanks

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Push and hold the VSC ( car with squiggly lines ) button for 5 seconds while stopped

This will " disable " the tc / vsc system

Is this what you tried ?

ABS cannot be turned off

Disabling the VSC / TC system only greatly reduces the sensitivity , it still lurks in the background

Turning off the traction control will not disable ABS

You will damage your tires since you will probably be peeling out.

PROtip: unplug gray connector behind battery to disable it all at once, when done fooling around, plug it back in.
