Re: Traction control button function

All is well it was the switch on the console had gone south. At the same time we did the diff swap. the whole time kept blaming it on the gear ratio swap. I had purchased a new switch about a month ago after I cleaned up the console from all the spilled coffee or soda and the switches were a bit sti...

Re: HELP! ABS/StabiliTrak Fault Light on, keeps blowing F5 Fuse

I feel a little better driving the ...

Re: Traction control button function

Great advise ! I just sent off a follow up message to Blackbear performance who did my remote tune and asked him if or how much he altered the torque tables on my tune and if another follow up tune would be necessary. And I'm happy to mention after troubleshooting some more today I found the t/c but...

Outside Temp?

Do these 9C1s have an option to show outside Temperatures? I toggled thru all the options on the display and cant find it, I thought it would be next to the time or maybe on the rear view mirror but nothing. :roll:

Dim headlights

Why do these Caprice's have such low quality headlights? I dont get it, they use projector lenses I even installed a set of sylvania silvester ultra's one thing I noticed is the glass lens dont look crystal clear but look like they have a matte finish. I even stuck a long wooden dowel with a rag ins...

Re: Disabling Stabilitrak

Your right torque management can be manipulated but he says you cant mess with the Traction Control TC. Which is another locked up computer in the ABS system, that's what Black Bear performance told me. Just quoting him, he has many satisfied customers.

Re: HELP! ABS/StabiliTrak Fault Light on, keeps blowing F5 Fuse

I think I'm having the opposite problem. I cant disable the traction control . Pressing the button does nothing, which was fine a few weeks ago. I checked all the connections at the brakes. Not sure if it's a blown fuse or bad switch? Where do I start? All these ponys and no way to unleash the beast...

Went back under the car all connections are fine just stopped working? I haven't checke...
