can you do burnouts? if you can then you don't have it lol. or you will have it if there's a button in the center console on the right hand side of the e-brake with a tire on it.

You dont have to have the euro to have TC. If a annoying yellow light comes on when you take off to fast and your car bogs like a bitch, then you have TC. That or just look for the button.

no which sucks. i guess you can get a tune and that will make the button an on/off switch instead of the stock on/auto on. from what i've heard they havn't got a tune that will disable the tc on the '04's. i did that kill switch also lol but it also wipes out your abs [:(]

Whether you've got TC or not, you'll love your car a BUNCH more once you get a tune! You'll gain a bunch more torque at lower RPMs, get rid of the annoying "hanging idle" and do away with the surging between 2000 and 3500 RPM. Oh yeah and if you've got a 2003 or earlier, you can turn off your TC without compromising your ABS.

The popular tunes from the "usual suspects" - Ray at McNews, Tom, FocusSport, Wayne at Hypnotic - will enable you to kill (completely kill) the T/C by turning it off with the console switch. This is for all '02s, all '03s, and most '04s. Proper ABS function is not affected by completely turning off traction control with the custom tunes.

With some late-model-run '04s, there has been no way found yet to completely shut off T/C with the console switch, even with the custom tunes. With these cars also, though, there is no compromise in ABS function.

Rigging up a traction control kill switch on any of these cars compromises ABS function.
