Default Anyway to get Traction Control to cut completely off instead of half off with the button?!

This half off traction control nonsense has to go. Traction control button should be on and off not on and almost off. If I wanna drift around in my truck then I should be able to with out it deciding im taking it to far.

If you get a Diablo Predator you can probably turn it off. I find that at least in my Dodge Magnum, the Predator tuner already reduces the sensitivity a lot, maybe too much. Also when you have almost 400 hp and you turn off traction control, things can get out of control pretty fast. My 05 don't have traction control, in snow and ice you'd better be on your toes.

I've grown up with European rear wheel drive sports cars so the rear end sliding is what I'm after and this TC only let's me do that to a point.

I'm not 100% positive but.... If you hold the traction control button in for 10 seconds you will see the warning lights for anti-lock etc light up in the dash and a chime, I believe, this is telling you it has been disabled. I do see a difference but am not positive this is, in fact, happening. A service tech told me about this. Anyone else try this?.

The only way I have noticed to get traction control to turn completely off is when you are in 4wd and you hold the button down for about ten seconds then full traction control is disabled

On my 2011 Wrangler, the traction control worked exactly like on the Rams, however there was a sequence of key on, turn steering wheel one way and then the other, key off blah blah blah that would completely shut off traction control. I'll try to find how I did it and try it on the Ram. You would think they worked the same.

I believe you can push the button and pull the ABS fuse and that disables it 100%
