Is it possible to completely disable the trac control when needed on
the 07 sportrac. Was on fire trail and power to the wheels were
constantly disengaging, more of an annoyance and waste of gas. But the
big scare, Hwy 17, Old Santa Cruz Rd getting on to 17, gas it to get
onto the freeway, started strong got up to about 35 - 40 with Trac Ctrl
off, then fell flat on it's face with no power. Looked down and saw
the RPM rise... started to feather the gas but no response and took the
ECU too much time to recover.
If there's an article already out there please, point me in the right
direction... Hope this post gains some traction.
It's a 4wd, V8... yes, no forward movement but rpm rising. If you drive
it on a dirt road you get the same thing regardless of hard
acceleration or steady/smooth acceleration. Seems just driving on a
dirt road and hittng the bumps and dips it activates traction control
and cut the power. It's funny how they put this on a truck, I can
understand on a car.
I'm in 2WD when it happens, have not tried it in 4WD cause the
conditions didn't require it.
As for the other comment from the other post. I don't think somethings
happening, I know it's happening, i.e. reproducible
Well, it's an 07... aftermarket info is going to be closer to non-existant
than "hard to find". At this point in time, you are blaming the vehicle
dynamics for your conern with no real stated proof....
I can only suggest you take it to your dealer... tell them what is happening
and avoid what you "think" is happening. We can only repair those things we
can prove are broken....
