Re: interesting find today

Sounds like all you have to do is purchase a T/C button and wella. you havea t?c button that does nothing, until you get sensors and associated hardware and software.

Re: interesting find today

The looms are pretty much standard on all of the same model car. Hooking a switch on one end won't do much, unless there is something for it to operate on the other. Im guessing that's what you're thinking of doing.

Re: interesting find today

BA XR6 don't get excited at all for Ford it is cheaper to put the loom in on every car than to only put it in on a few that need it. The funniest thing is the EF-EL Falcons which had the loom for the Rear window washer on all Sedans and was only used on the wagons, but they all still have it there

Re: interesting find today

Don't have to worry about much though - its pretty much been explained as to this reason. Actually a service center WDS could possibly enable the TC software. However then you have to find out if you have the brake system that is TC compatible.

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: interesting find today

If it's the Traction control that you are after then the TCS(Traction Control System) is incorporated in the ABS unit(There are 2 levels of ABS units.1 with TC and 1 without).The TC equiped ABS unit has the addition of a priming valve and a switching valve to allow the brake pressure at the rear wheels to be applied independantly of each other and of the driver.
Now if you wanted to add it to your vehicle you would have to change the ABS modulator assy,enable Traction Control in the IC(Instrument Cluster Module)for the warning light and add the switch to the spare hole under your foglight/accessory light/driving light ,or whatever you call them, switch.You can only do this on a sedan that doesnt have a LSD fitted though.All BA sedans use a 4 channel ABS system so they are compatable for the traction control systems.

Hope this helps

By the way, the modulator assy costs about $2K alone.
