Yes, I will be doing this in the spring. The button will disable the wss, raise the auto level set points in the rear and disable the E brake wiring when I'm done. It will be a drag 'mode' switch

Might be a dumb question, but what is WSS?

Yea Pdad..... how are you planning to wire all that up?

I know about the WSS... but what about the rest?

How are you planning on getting it to raise the auto level set points in the rear?
Don't you have to physcailly disconnect the tubes?

And disable the E brake ..... what will that do?
and how could you do it via a button?

By using normally closed relays, turn them on and they open the cct'* for the ebrake, wss. For the auto level the relay will need both a normally closed and an open to lift the rear, one to disable the sensor and one to make the lift command. Wiring all the relays to operate with one switch is the easy part, routing all the necessary wiring will be the challenge

So, the plan is one easy switch to "auto" disable the WSS and leveling controls? Coool! Let us know how it turns out. it will be pretty awesome to have the rear end raise up and be able to totally disable the wss with the flick of a switch. Rear end raising switches - Bonne Hydraulics!

Does anyone have a wiring schematic they could send me electrnically of the traction control system and the auto leveling sensors? or where i could get one? i would like to dig into this and see how difficult it would be to combine this as P-Dad has said.
