TURN OFF Traction Control 2010 Silverado
So, I am new to the whole traction/stabilatrak control programming in the truck. I am use to having 4 wheel drive and a locking differential.
Can anyone tell me how to turn it off COMPLETELY. According to the manual, if you press and hold the traction control button for 5 seconds, it will turn off both the stabilatrak and traction control.
I have done that, and the light on the dash illumates. The system says both are off.
But my question is, why even still when it is off, does my light occasionally flash? It feels like the system is off, so is it just purely warning me to tell me that I AM SPINNING and that it is off?
ANy comments or anyone seen this? Just want to make sure that when I turn it off, it is off, esp when in deep Minnesota snow~!

You will have to turn it off f each time. That occasional flash of the light you see is telling you the stabilitrac is on again and working.

My 2009 does the same thing. And it only really does it in deep snow when you're on the gas hard. We got a foot or so 2 weekends ago and I was driving on some unplowed roads with stabilitrak off in 4 high and noticed the light flashing once in a while. It was mainly when I was trying to speed up to get through some deeper snow drifts, I really couldn't tell if the stabilitrak was making me slow down or if it was just how it felt going through the deeper snow.
