Traction Contol Button force ATX

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, I have a 2011 Toyota Aurion ATX that I like very much, I am a little annoyed however that this model didn't come with a traction control button, Im wondering if it's possible to install one, seeing as the sports models have them, anyone done this?

According to Toyota Aurion spec list for your car, it seems that it did have traction control, even  the ATX.

I'm not sure about this, but I suspect it's always 'activated' with no means to switch it off.

Me personally, why would you opt to turn it off anyway ?

For a relatively powerful front wheel drive V6 car, you'll need all the traction you can get.

The traction control can be switched off by pressing Up, Up, Down Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A and then starting the engine.

 

I kid.  But yes there is a method for turning off the TCS in an Aurion, it's more convoluted than the Konami Code and you have to do it each time you start the car, but it is a well documented thing, take a look in the pinned Aurion FAQ thread and you'll find it

There were a couple of lunatics a few years ago that implemented one, but there was a lot of stuffing around in the process.

Toyota obviously didn't want people turning it off accidently and putting unmetered power to the wheels unless it was intentional.

      Seeing as I haven't introduced her yet, meet Niko Niko! Or Niko or NiNi for short. It's a weird name but here me out.
      Toyota is a Japanese brand (obviously)
      Niko/Niko Niko is the Japanese word for Smile/Smiley
      The Aurion always looks like it's got a smile on it's face
      I'm also Asian and what some might call a "Weeaboo"

      Anyway, this is my car and she is very fast considering she looks like what a grandparent would drive.
      I've owned this car for a short time (Less than a month) and it's honestly one of the best purchases I've made! I love it, my friends love it! Commodore drivers hate it and that's okay with me!

      I'm not sure where I want to go with this car (in terms of build) I was thinking something that I could bring to meetups and have it turn a few heads so if there's anyone within that department let me know!

      Hi all
      Can anyone recommend a reputable mechanic in Sydney with some sort of Corolla Sportivo experience?
      Looking to have clutch and gearbox issue fixed and would prefer expertise in this area.
      Happy to travel but within or the surrounding Hurstville areas would be ideal :)
