Ummm you can't without having lots of Christmas lights in your dash. Why do you want it off? Also it's Tacoma.

Well push and hold the VSC button while stopped. That will turn TRAC off but VSC will only be 85% off. If that isn't enough then pull the plug on the master cylinder. <---Try this at your own risk. If you have a locker then engage it. VSC, TRAC and ABS will be off.

It wouldn't recommend locking the rear when you haul ass through the desert without seeing what it does to your handling first. It will significantly change your drift and tracking, just FYI.

While the vehicle is stopped, hold in the VSC OFF switch for about 3-5 seconds (until indicator lights come on). This is in H2 or H4. In L4, there is no traction control unless you push the A-TRAC button (4WD Off Road Tacomas only).

Of course, you can't race around the desert in low range, now can you... so no locker either.... Unless you are a 2WD Prerunner Off Road TRD.

The traction control only works if you loose traction, so you are normally an open differential truck.

You go spinning around in a nice 2010 Tacoma, well... the VSC will keep you from spinning out by correcting drift. Even with you manually shutting off the VSC, it is still lurking and will come back on if the truck senses you are about to roll over!

Maybe, just silence the annoying beeper instead of shutting of the nifty system?

You and the OP are not the only ones reading this... so when I pop in, it is to clarify or add something for the newbees or the old bees! You hadn't suggested to silence the beeper, which I think would be the first choice if it annoys anyone... afterall the technology that went into the VSC and TRAC systems, might as well get the most out of what you paid for, right?

Actually the best choice would be to disable the system. It sounds like the system is hindering offroad performance for the OP. I know that even on easy trails the system is constantly beeping and firing off the ABS pump. Very annoying! So disabling the system makes everything better. I plan to do the ABS disable mod or locker mod so I don't have to deal with the annoying system. Lastly this system was designed for on road use just like ABS. Take it onto dirt and it quickly gets in the way.

If someone new comes along they can search up your super awesome thread for clarification right? Yay!

I agree if the beeping annoys you, turn off the beeping... but the system improves off road drivability with limited slip action front and rear. Have you not seen the rave reviews by the non Off Road Tacoma owners who have done the 4-Lo Trac Mod (yellow wire mod)? Trac works so well in H4, they figured out how to fool the system to give it to them in L4.

If there was a true VSC OFF but the TRAC stayed on, then that would be a good compromise.

VSC sucks when on loose ground and especially sucks in snow

Using 4wd in the rain is retarded

Dude I just simply don't care. If I need more traction then I will select the appropriate tool I need at the time it is needed. That is why I don't run 4wd all the time or ATRAC all the time.

...and with TRAC and VSC nobody needs to use 4WD in the rain or A-TRAC (that is just a stupid statement that makes it look like you don't know what it is made for).

If you're talking to me , using 4wd in the rain is retarded .

I was editing my post when you quoted me originally , VSC sucks in loose grip conditions like gravel and especially snow .

I didn't bring up Atrac
