I asked what you are trying to do...for example " I'm trying to Dyno the car" so that I can help.

In summary, unless you tell me more...your answer is "It is off"

Although your asking about traction control, I'm guessing that you are talking about torque management.....

You have to disconnect your WSS (wheel speed sensors) to fully disable it, and even then you still have some.
Gotcha. I was just trying to find the end goal, to help.

Yep, it'* pull the Wheel speed sensors, then.

The Wheel Speed Sensor is integral with the wheel hub. (The part that sits just inside the brake rotor, and has the wheel stud pressed into it. You can disconnect them without pulling the wheels.

Fair enough. I was trying to take the extra step to see what he was trying to do, to make sure I wouldn't give bad advice, or tell him to pull sensors when he might be trying to just turn off a dash light. (He didn't have alot of posts, so didn't want to assume.)
