ok so i got tcs off and andvantrac off didnt notice the issue but only got through 4 gears i'll test it on the highway tomorrow. obviously tcs is for traction but what does advancetrac do? do i need to keep turning this on/off? if this resolves my issue.
TCS alone keeps wheel spin to a minimum by cutting power and applying the brakes. Advance track monitors steering input, wheels speed, ect.. and applies braking to help keep the car straight. It works very well as a system IMO. You should be able to dive pretty hard with it on, but I have noticed that I get some bogging when it kicks in as I chirp through gears and start to get a little sideways.
TCS off=roast the tires in a straight line.
TCS off ans AC off=write you name all over the street...
If the car is normal with those systems off, then you may possibly have an issue with a sensor somewhere.. unless the car is actually just doing what its suppose to be doing to keep you from hitting a wall, or a cow : )
