Can someone help me turn off traction control. It's very annoying to drive with the traction control. I just want to know how to turn it off. I have a 2006 Chrysler 300 Base 2.7L

When I turn a corner or try to speed up to pass someone, my traction control light comes on and my car feels like it slows down. Please let me know how to turn off.

Thanks

You can turn it off with a NoESP switch wired into your power control center.

The system sounds as if it is working properly. I wouldn't recommend turning it off.

Check around each wheel that the ABS sensors are secure.

Synchronizing ESP:
The malfunction indicator light for the ESP is combined with BAS. If the power supply was interrupted (battery disconnected or discharged), the ESP/BAS malfunction indicator light may be illuminated with the engine running. Turn the steering wheel completely to the left and then to the right. The ESP/BAS malfunction indicator light should go out.

The traction control system (TCS) warning light is located in the instrument cluster. The TCS light will flash as soon as the tires lose traction and the wheels begin to spin. This indicates that the TCS system is active. If the TCS warning light begins to flash during acceleration, ease up on the accelerator and apply as little throttle as possible.

Be sure to adapt your speed and driving to the prevailing road conditions. When the TCS warning light is illuminated continuously, the TCS is switched off. To return to the enhanced vehicle stability offered by TCS, press the traction control switch (the TCS warning light in the instrument cluster goes out). Avoid spinning one drive wheel. This may cause serious damage to the drive train.

The traction control switch is located on the center of the instrument panel. To turn the traction control system OFF press the traction control switch until the traction control Indicator in the instrument cluster lights up.

To improve the vehicle’s traction when driving with snow chains, or starting off in deep snow, sand or gravel, switch off the TCS system by pressing the traction control switch.

To turn the system back ON, press the traction control switch a second time until the traction control Indicator turns OFF.

NOTE:
• The traction control system comes on each time the ignition switch is turned ON. This will occur even if you used the switch to turn the system OFF.
• The Traction Control system will make buzzing or clicking sounds when in operation.

Brake Assist System (BAS) is standard on vehicles equipped with electronic stability program (ESP). The BAS is designed to optimize the vehicle’s braking capability during emergency braking maneuvers. The system applies optimum pressure to the brakes in emergency braking conditions than might otherwise be afforded solely by the driver’s braking style.

This can help reduce braking distances. The BAS complements the antilock brake system (ABS). Applying the brakes very quickly results in the best BAS assistance. To receive the benefit of the system, you must apply continuous braking power during the stopping sequence. Do not reduce brake pedal pressure.

Once the brake pedal is released, the BAS is deactivated.

The malfunction indicator light for the ESP is combined with BAS. The yellow ESP/BAS malfunction indicator light and the yellow ESP warning light in the instrument cluster both come on when the ignition switch is turned to the “ON”
position. They should go out with the engine running. If the ESP/BAS malfunction indicator light comes on continuously with the engine running, a malfunction has been detected in either the ESP or the BAS system. If this light stays illuminated, have the ESP and BAS checked by your dealer as soon as possible.

The ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAM (ESP) enhances directional control and reduces driving wheel spin of the vehicle under various driving conditions.

The system operates when the vehicle speed is greater than 7.8 mph (12.6 km/h). The ESP system corrects for over/understeering of the vehicle by applying brakes to the appropriate wheel. Engine torque is also limited.

The ESP warning light, located in the instrument cluster, starts to flash as soon as the ESP system sensor’s information varies from the driver’s intended path. The ESP warning light also flashes when traction control is activated. If the ESP warning light begins to flash during acceleration, ease up on the accelerator and apply as little throttle as possible.

Be sure to adapt your speed and driving to the prevailing road conditions. When the ESP warning light is illuminated continuously, the ESP is switched off. To return to the enhanced vehicle stability offered by ESP, press the ESP switch (the ESP warning light in the instrument cluster goes out). Avoid spinning one drive wheel. This may cause serious damage to the drive train.

To improve the vehicle’s traction when driving with snow chains, or starting off in deep snow, sand or gravel, switch off the ESP system by pressing the ESP switch.

With the ESP system switched off, the engine torque reduction feature is cancelled. Therefore, the enhanced vehicle stability offered by ESP is unavailable. ESP always operates under braking, even with the switch in the OFF position. When the ESP system is disabled (if one drive wheel loses traction and begins to spin) the brake is applied by the ESP system to control wheel slip. This wheel slip control is active at vehicle speeds between approximately 24 mph (40 km/h) and 50 mph (80 km/h).
