    Hi people, just sold my 200sx, and am now in the delight of a 96 mv6, which is great, but would like to take it sideways.
    Has anyone managed to turn the traction control off with out the option on the dash?

    Oh and i big HELLO! :cool:

    the only way i know is to press the tc button and the light will come on the dash, then it's turned off as omega tc's are always on.

    i didn't find this out till the other week

    oh and welcome(y)

    Thanks for the welcome, i haven't got a button, but i think there is a way of "tricking" it though. !

    I think i have the answer if anyone reads this, Ive been told to buy a switch off a breaker vehicle and fit it to the existing wires that i will have behind my dash. Will let you know if it works.
    But im pretty confident it will.

    Thanks

    Should be able to get it disabled by tech2.

    Know any Vauxhall guys that owe you a favour?

    Unplug the TC ECU. It's by the passenger seat on the cav, not sure where it is on the Omega though, sorry. That should stop the light coming on on the dash too.

    Also, are you turning it into a full scale Drift machine, or just for a little fun now and again?

    Even when you turn it off unless you have an LSD its hard to keep it sideways, just spins one wheel and doesnt do much.

    And give yourself another light on the dash...no ABS.


    What I'd love is a 'handy' TC switch - like on the gear knob (like the SPORTS button on an auto) - or even on the steering wheel (rewire one of the audio switches?)
