How to Disable Traction Control
Impala 2006 – 2012 models
Traction Control is different than the Antilock Breaking System. Where ABS keeps your tires from locking up during a “sudden stop”, Traction Control keeps your wheels from spinning from a “sudden go”. Having Traction Control on is useful during slippery weather when your tires can just spin on an icy road. The same can be said for a gravel road. You can turn off Traction Control, here’s how:
- Look to the left of the steering wheel, there’s a set of buttons and knobs on a panel.
- Click the lower right button. The symbol looks like a tire with a “TC” and a “slash” through it (see image above).
- You should see this same symbol appear on the dash display in red.
- Your Traction Control is now disabled!
