yes, the WSS are quite self explanitory, if you have your wheel off, there is a connector going to the wheel hub/steering knuckle.. just cut and put afuse in line with one of those wires
Fuse? mmm I'd disagree. Toasty means cut the wire and put a switch in place.

right, a fuse would do nothing. in my previous post i mentioned putting a switch in line with the ABS fuse, as an alternate solution

Sorry...I was confused with the WSS talk.

There seem to be two ways.
1. Cut and add a switch to a WSS wire
2. Cut and add a switch to the ABS wire.

Not sure this is going to fly guys. ABS isn't as closely related to TC on the 2k+ bonnevilles. TC uses TM in the PCM, not applied braking. Disabling ABS may have no effect on the TC whatsoever.

92-95 Bonnevilles COULD do this. But not the 2k+.

True, when wheel slip is detected w/o brakes applied, the EBCM will request the PCM to reduce torque by retarding spark timing & turning off fuel injectors. If engine torque reduction does not eliminate wheel slip, the EBCM will actively apply the drive wheel brakes. This is a brief summary of the FSM Description of Operation for Traction Control.

i pulled my ABS fuse when i dynoed my car, and not a WSS, and i had no problems with the computer controls on the dyno, and i left a 30 foot 2 wheel black mark outside the shop, so yes, pulling the fuse will be good.

but splicing a switch into the WSS will allow you to temporarily disable the traction control without any ill-effects right? Will there be any lights/codes as a result?

An aftermarket PCM that removes ALL the torque management AND removing all the wheel speed sensors is the only way to totally stop the car from producing maximum power in a burnout.
