What are you trying to do???

If you are trying to defeat traction control, then yep...thats the one...

If you pull that fuse, you'll be left looking at those lights till you put it back in.
(BTW, along with the brake and ABS lights, the TC light should be on as well)

You do realize not only do you lose ABS and TC, but you also lose the brake proportioning between the front and rear.
Normal bias favors (by a substantial margin) the fronts.
Pulling that fuse gets you a 50/50 split.
I would NOT recommend this for daily driving...strictly for the track (drag race) only.

why dont you just rig up the TC byPass switch and be done with it?

I believe there is a how-to on here somewhere.

I dislike abs and traction control. They are both a waste to me and feel they hinder me from pushing the car that little bit further.

i dont believe ABS breaking is a waste. maybe traction control, but i think ABS has prolly saved a lot of lives. Why risk it if your just daily driving? What if you need that extra breaking power some day. Its just not wise.
