Traction control

Is there a way to turn off the traction control fully?
When you hit the button, its more like limited slip instead of off...
Would prefer to have off and on...instead of on and semi-on
Thoughts?
2015 model

Have you tried holding the button down for a long five count or so until it dings? Should cut it off more than just hitting it once, it if works like in my 2012.

That still only gets you part way there. The link provided above is the only simple way to shut it down completely.

Yes, this works great! I would suggest that you consider a NC/MO switch rather a locking switch. This way each time you start your jeep the ABS and TC will be engaged unless you press the switch again to disable. That way if some else drives your jeep ABS and TC will be functioning. I have my switch in a semi-hidden location.

I appreciate that, but I believe that it is better than just hitting the switch, especially if someone doesn't want to do the mod. You do have to do it each time you shut the Jeep off and start it up though.

When you flip the bypass switch the dash lights up like a Christmas tree no matter what type of switch you use. Sort of a dead giveaway. My switch is a covered toggle on the A-pillar where it's quick and easy to get to. No need to hide anything from myself. I'm the only one allowed behind the wheel of my rig anyway.

The steering wheel dance, aka 'the Hokey Pokey' does work in older models, like my '08, BUT, you have to get the timing just right. It often takes me 2 or 3 attempts to get it right.
