How to: Turn off advance trac.
 
I have seen many threads lately for the new mustangs about the advance track not allowing people to race their car to the fullest potential...

This process must be done with the car on and with you pressing the brakes..
The way around this is to FIRST turn off traction control. You do this by pressing the button once... SECOND you must hold the traction control down for about 6 seconds and you will see the advance track turn off. All this while holding the brakes..

Now all you have to do is let her rip! :icon_steer:

Hope this helps a few people out!

For additional help refer to my post number 28 for further assistance.

Here is a video!

so you mean turn on the car, hold down traction control switch for 6 seconds and everything is off?

GTRACER88 07-28-2010 08:10 AM

No.. Sorry.. Hold the brakes down.. the whole time. While the car is on and running press the button once to turn off traction control (press and release). The after the TC is off now press and hold the TC button and the advance trac will turn off (Press and hold for 6 seconds). All this while holding the brakes.

Works for me!! Thanks

Yep. pressing once only turns off traction control leaving stability control active, holding it down until the light comes on de-activates the stability control as well. I'm surprised alot of people still don't know this. It seems it comes up in quite a few threads. You should ask a mod to sticky it here as well as the 05-10 v6 section.

TC is for wusses. What ever happened to learning how to drive and handle the car? There's a time and place for everything and TC isn't for when you want to do some "spirited driving".

And don't even get me started on backup cameras...

Things like TC and ABS will save your life when trying to avoid an accident.

I only think backup cameras are a necessity on trucks, it makes lining up a trailer a simple task that you can do on your own rather than someone yelling which way to turn and how much distance you have.

I agree with ABS but I've been in some close calls when TC cuts out the throttle

Traction Control should be automatically off, and say if its raining or the weather is bad, you should be able to turn it on. Im going to write a letter to Ford haha.

discodave 07-29-2010 10:13 PM

From what I remember you have to do that process every time you start your car right? I don't think there's a way to permanently disable it.

GTRACER88 07-30-2010 06:22 AM

Yes.. every time you start the car it must be done.

Mach1man 08-02-2010 10:55 AM

I'm sure Diablosport and SCT already have a way to permanently turn all that silliness off with their handheld tuners!

i disagree on back up cameras
after trying out the one in my mom's g37 i want one so bad
makes backing into a parking spot so easy when it shows you lines where your car is going to be!!
that being said im lazy lol

Could help save the life of a little kid who might sneak in behind you too.

Of course it MAY save your life, I don't understand the argument. Safety features are the things you don't use everyday but have for when things don't go right.

I check my surroundings before backing up, can't say I've ever come close to hitting anything. The backup camera is a convenience feature.

Not arguing so much as clarifying. Absolutes can get you in trouble:-) You said will when its really may. Since you like safety gear I'm just noting that a rear facing camera has a safety aspect. These points are just generic statements, not meant to be specific to any one's skills, habits or a particular situation.

I agree with Nuke but it's unavoidable that we will have fully automated cars in the near future where the driver won't even be needed.

Now, I'd love to see these improvised drivers in the event of a failure system where you need to drive the car manually.
That should be epic! :)

The TC on our cars can be a cut throat because some drivers can become over confident in the handling of the car and end up in a ditch anyways.
I often do you hear "I don't understand, I had the TC on!" . LOL.

hogasswild 08-02-2010 09:51 PM

Does this stay off once you set it or do you have to turn it off each time the car is on?
