Nannies...

Do you turn them off:
Ever?
Sometimes?
All the time?
Is there a way to turn them off permanently?

Why would anyone want to you ask? Because.

I turn them off each time I start the truck because, quite simply, they don't work.

There is a module under the steering wheel that can be unplugged to disable them permanently.

I don't care about the environment. Neither do you.

I like my nannies. If you learn to use them, they do a pretty good job. I only turn them off to play.

I let the truck and its electronics work for me and not the other way around, hahaha. I do, however, turn off my RSCA when wheeling.

I turn them off when I'm driving on the beach.

I turn them off if I feel like screwing around.

The rest of the time I leave them on because I really don't care.

Hahaha, just like a babysitter. Electronic aids to watch over the truck and what is going on around the truck and save you from getting in trouble. We are equipped with auto lsd, traction control, vsc, etc...

I just turn them off when I see a snowy parking lot that is calling my name. I just hold in that one button next too the tow/haul button for a few seconds. I'm sure there is a way to turn more off, because the truck still fights me more than my Tacoma ever did even with that stuff turned off, but who knows. It would be nice to know how to shut them all off.

The problem with them, specifically in the Tundra, is they are overly intrusive. Sometimes you need to gun the throttle and get a surge of power to enter a traffic stream, merge etc. If the electronics detects even a tiny drizzle of wheelspin it will completely shut off power and leave you dead in the water with your vehicle stuck half way into the street. Annoying at best, dangerous at worst. Don't get me wrong.....properly tuned and set up, this technology can be beneficial. My Duramax, despite being a piece of garbage for other reasons, has a better traction control arrangement than the Tundra because it allows a bit of wheelspin before it cuts power. When it does cut power, it is done gradually and predictably, unlike the sudden and complete pulling of the plug with the Tundra.

I don't care about the environment. Neither do you.

In this thread the dude discusses how to disconnect the module and permanently disable the nannies: https://www.tundratalk.net/forums/tun...n-control.html

Actually, OP was asking and has not discussed it since he has not replied to anybody's input...

one quick push of that button turns off the thing that kills power from the engine. This can be done while moving or parked. While in park hold the same button in for 4 or 5 seconds and some traction control goes away. Hold it in again for another 4 or 5 seconds and everything is off except ABS. Do this in a snowy, empty parking lot and have some fun

I shut them off every time I get in the truck. Traction control and the fakey do LSD don't do any good on a Supercharged Tundra. They just choke everything down to 35 horsepower.........There is way to much interference from them. I am use to having fun in my sports cars which is full driver input, no nannies. Even when I drive the Corvette or the Nismo I have to shut off the traction control. The Vector doesn't have any nannies. Its pure driver input. You tell it what to do and it does it. You mess up and the car messes up with you. The way it should be.
