    There should be a button on the dash somewhere...don't you have a user manual?

    BTW, that "stupidest idea" you've ever seen is one of the best safety features since seat belts...it's been proven to prevent tons of accidents.

    Ya there's a button and every time you turn off the car it resets, I agree its a good safety idea but, it should have been wired the oposit way. automaticly OFF..lol Ya its good on wet roads, but i personally almost have been in a accident because of it... Anyways i heard there's a modual u can buy so its off all the time unless you turn it on so...

    I turn mine off all the time too. Sliding rear + midengine design + TCS cutting fuel in said slide = snap oversteer.

    It goes off.

    if you want it off all the time take out the relay? bad idea though its there for a reason saves like 1000 lives a day so unless you have never come close to crashing your car keep it. i know i wish my talon had it sometimes, then again i dont really get wheel spin in the dry world

    Supra's do the same thing.... The Button on a supra only alows the traction to turn off for minor wheel spin. But if you are launching and shit... I had to take my fuse out. I only take it out when racing though, because if it wasn't there i would have killed myself by now

    If you need TCS in an All-wheel-drive Talon, you need driving lessions. I never needed to alter my driving style in mine even when the snow fell.

    I don't even notice it anymore, turning it off is second nature now.

    Get in, turn car on, buckle up, turn TCS off, stereo on, put it into gear.
