Can the 3.5 turn it off all the way? What about if it's the 3.5 AWD?
so what about the "performance mode" trick...coast at about 20mph, turn the ignition switch until you hear the chime and see the abs and esp/traction icons light up...is this also only off at 60%, fully off, or is it all just lights on my dash"?
Can you post pictures ?on the 5.7L you can't turn it all the way off without a modification to the accelerometer.
pushing the ESP off button under the clock will reduce it by about 60%, the only way to kill it is to wire a switch to the accelerometer power line and cut the power to the accelerometer computer.
the accelerometer is a small device under the console that work in conjunction with the ABS system, it detects the yaw and pitch of the vehicle, and the ABS system sensors detect wheel spin, and together they apply the brake to the wheel that is spinning to control traction..
it's a simple mod to do, costs about $5 for a switch, if you make it over for the stereo work, I'll do it at the same time since we will have the console out of the car anyway.
