Traction control switch for AWD Sierra Denali?

Postby VegasDenali [OP] » Apr 18 2011, 6:05pm

Does anyone know of a product or setup for installing a traction control on/off switch on a 05' GMC Sierra Denali? This is the 1st AWD vehicle I have owned that didnt have a switch to turn off the traction control feature. Hoping someone has been down this road before and can help me out.

Btw - I'm new to this forum and site, just joined yesterday so if I'm not following typical posting guidelines let me know. Thanks and I'm excited to trade info!

Isn't there a switch on the dash to shut it off?

I am sure there must be a switch, mine is just below the heater controls, maybe look on the home page at the very bottom for the manual and double check. Also welcome to the site.

Pardon my ignorance, but do 05 trucks even have traction control? My 03 doesn't even have a limited slip or locking rear diff :twisted:, let alone electronic nannies.

Good point, mine does have locking rear diff but just assumed it has traction control. Going to pull the manual and see what I find and post it here.

So checked my manual and shows on the diagram of the instrument panel where Traction control switch is located unless you have Denali model and then its a storage compartment. On page 2-23 of the manual it states the all wheel drive "is fully automatic, and adjusts itself as needed for road conditions".

At this point I'm certain it's always engaged.

If anyone has knowledge of how to run a control switch that activates and turns off the traction control please post your ideas. I will keep posting on my progress.

Thanks!

Yeah, the AWD set up is your traction control. I am sure that if you get custom tuning or a canned tuner like the Predator you have have the torque management systems turned down or off and that will give you a better feeling. I had PCMForless tune my 03 SS Silverado and with a billet aluminum shift servo it ran great. Just be careful, they only gave the LQ9 345 HP and 385 ftlbs torque for a reason. If you want to look over some old posts and learn a little more about the LQ9/AWD set up PM me and I will send you a site.
