I had an embarrassing moment last week. We’ve probably all done this. I went to do a burnout and forgot the traction control was on – really pathetic launch. So, my mission was to disable the TCS and avoid this problem. I’m sure I’m not the first to discover this simple fix, but my internet and forum searches have turned up nothing. So, here it is, the simple TCS disable! After tinkering with the TCS switch, I discovered by trial and error that if you hold in the switch, the car always defaults to TCS off. First I tried just holding the button during multiple restarts, then I jammed it with a paper clip and went for a test drive. No matter how many restarts, as long as the switch is held down, TCS defaults off. I’m certain it was really off and not just a logic glitch because I took a test drive in the rain. I assure you the TCS is REALLY OFF. OK, all the TCS button does is short a wire to ground. Phase two of my conversion was to wire the TCS button line to a toggle switch that I could shunt to ground. With the toggle open, the TCS button works as Ford intended. With the toggle closed and the TCS line shunted to ground, traction control is now always off. Has anyone else tried this and had any problems? Am I overlooking something or is it really that simple?
