    Awesome 2011 TRD
    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

    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

    What I find funny is the fact that nobody has posted a spell check message yet.

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