    I was just looking through the diy ABS, VSC, TRAC disable mod write up. Has anyone tried this with an 09 4cyl 4x4? I understand how it tricks the ABS computer into thinking the locker is engaged but does it work with the Auto LSD setup?
    Any help is appreciated! The ABS/TRAC in these things is way to picky for me...

    What exactly are you trying to achieve?
    There is a disable button on the lower left dash of my 2009....If you want no TRAC. just push the button once.

    The way i've figured out this whole system is like this:
    - In 2wd, the Trac Button Turns off Trac/VSC, Turns on the Auto LSD
    - In 4hi, it ONLY turns off Trac/VSC, no Auto LSD (why? no clue... seems this is where it'd be most important..?)
    - In 4lo, it turns off Trac/VSC and ABS, and Turns on Auto LSD

    ABS is only disabled in 4lo. I'm wondering if this mod will turn off the TRAC, ABS and VSC in any drive mode, and still work with the way the 09's are setup.

    If you hold it down for 5 seconds while stopped, it shuts of everything, at least until you push the brake pedal. TRAC is 4 wheel Lsd, and it is the default mode in 4 WD

    No Lsd of of any type in 4Low

    The VSC button does what you ask.
