so ur saying there is no parts or add ons for something wtih traction control ? i mean im willing to spend more to get traction control on/off ... right now here is winter so im storage it in the garage untill spring...
My buddy have a 2001 Ford mustang v6 but it have traction control switch on/off
Most of the rides that ive been looking for past month dont have traction control on/off switch
I just got a 2004 Ford Mustang 3.8l 5 speed with no Traction Control Switch on/off
is this a performance add on?
what is my car ? always traction on ? i havnt really driving the car home yet untill few more hours ..
let me know what i need to do !
Traction control was an option on all mustangs 99-04, especially the V6. 03 and 04 GT's had it incorporated as part of the premium package but you still paid for it as part of the "package". I don't believe you can have traction control without ABS as the ABS rings serve double duty for both the brakes and traction system.
Traction control just means the car cuts the gas and even applies the brakes when it sensesa wheel or wheels are spinning freely. If it didn't come from the factory with TCS (Traction Control System) don't bother. Not only will you have to swap your PCM, you will also have to have an ABS system installed which means a whole new setup from the master cylinder down to the spindles. The calipers are the same though.
Since you do not have the TCS option there is no point in getting a "button" for the option because it does not exist on your car.

you dont want or need traction control either. i curse my car for having it it doesnt do anything but **** me off cuz i keep forgetting to turn it off. if you strongly feel that bad that you need traction control to drive just sell your car now cuz i guarantee your gonna wreck it.

From what I've noticed in my 2004 3.9L... is that the TC is built into the PCM... Cause I can enable and disable it with my tuner - and ther IS a difference lol... Hard shift at 50... broke loose in an auto lolz.... scared the ever-living-sh*t out of me...
So I think our sixers "have" TC always on... It's the man's way of keeping us sixers down!!! REVOLT REVOLT!!! But like I said... with a tuner I was able to turn TC "off" and got a rid of the CONSTANT peg leg... haha

HELP! New to forum and been looking for weeks without sucees for a V6 vert MANUAL with safety package: ABS /TRACTION. Should not be mission impossible, right? Well after several agonizing days of waiting and calling, one dealer, e-mailed me to say that they don't make V6 manuals with the ABS/traction control (safety package). WHAT GIVES??? Is this true? Does ANYONE have this combo on their car? I could swear the catalog and site both mentioned it as an AVAILABLE option.
