Hi to all you Gurus.
First of all: I'm new to the board. It's overwhelming. You folks rock, really. Never seen such a useful board before. I mean it!
Second: Yep, I DID search the board and spent hours reading. In case I didn't find the thread answering my question, please be gentle - I really tried...
My Rig: '07 FJC TRD SE 6 speed manual transmission
My Prob: I am seeking a solution to disable ABS and/or
VSC and having only the lights in my dash lighten up that show this state and not
lighten up the lights for the locked center diff or rear diff although they're not locked. I find it confusing to tell me states of the vehicle that are not real...
What I tried so far: I started with the unplug hack (Thread: how to disable VSC (it works)
). As my reading wasn't thourough enough I missed the point that ABS is still active with this solution. Anyway, I installed a switch. I cut the purple wire on connector A14 as described in the Thread Install of VSC cancel switch
. When throwing the switch (which cuts the connection of the purple wire) the following lights on my dash fire up:
Slamming the brakes on a dirt road proofed that ABS is still working with this hack (as I said before, I could have read it
So I progressed to the hack described in Thread https://www.fjcruiserforums.com/forum...?highlight=vsc
When I ground the blue wire w/ yellow stripe and silver bars on connector A4, the following fires up:
Grounding the grey wire on connector A14 I see this on my dash:
To my understanding, this behaves correct and as expected. ABS will be deactivated only
in 4L (locked rear diff or not), right?
As I'm not willing to do donuts and burnouts (need more hp for that with full time 4wd) I don't care too much about disabling VSC. My focus lies on that f***ing ABS. I encountered a situation in Libya this year where I was doing about 85-90 mph on a gravel road that almost led into wreckage of my rig. I spotted a ditch and wanted to brake. ABS kept me from slowing down b/c all 4 wheels tended to lock. Of course!!! I needed to lock them. Anyway I decided to push it and let my suspension do it (had no other choice because ABS' attempt to save my live made the car unstable as hell). Wasn't too bad though. But there will be a situation where I really need to stop and I don't know why, but I really like my car do what I wan't to do...
So here's the question:
Will there be a solution that lets me switch of ABS (in combination with VSC will be O.K.) that doesn't fire up lights on my dash not representing the real state of my FJ? Any help or hint is highly appreciated!
