I have a 2007 ford focus, I have damaged the abs sensor while changing the wheel bearing. t/c stays on all the time now. I've pulled fuses 61,11,21,and 46 is not used. the service technician at the local ford dealer says he "thinks"
you can't diasable it.
I'm hoping there's an alternative.

anyone have any idea?

I hate my traction control. Does nothing for me even with the snow sometimes to get unstuck you just have to spin the tires. Can't do that with T/C.

I was not able to get up the driveway with it on, and was able to with it off.

If I have to disable the traction control on my 2013 Focus to get up my driveway in the snow, what is the traction control for if not to help traction in snow?

Is there any situation at all where it is better to be on?

yeah I'm going to go with because your asking the SVT guys about your brand new car when all were trying to do is go faster and make more tire noises. I would say your problem lies with the fact your trying to fight gravity on an icy hill and the only real way to over come that is more power.

This might be the longest dormant thread resurrection I've ever seen, 10 years!
