That's funny, I was actually going to suggest using black tape, in the 80's pretty much every car I owned had black tape over the check engine light, lol.



Glad you got what you needed with no bad results. I know my car will spin the tires from 5K rpm to redline in 1st and 2nd if I turn off the TCS so it may be a touch quicker because there is nothing stopping that little bit of wheel spin.

like before if i stomped the gas it was lazily rolling on the throttle gently, now it just does what my foot does. it's pretty noticeable and i don't think i'm nuts, because usually with a placebo effect your mind is expecting it. i wasn't expecting anything except the TCS to be off, which it is.
My Speed certainly accelerates faster with dsc off. I usually turn it off around town unless it's raining or I'm about to jump on the highway.

Cruise control no longer activates. apparently the one wire i clipped will need to be run to a switch. i hate adding wiring to cars. i will repair the wire i clipped under hood and see if a rear wheel sensor does the same thing. if it does i'll tie into the wire for the rear wheel sensor instead. i'd ASSume it runs right past the driver kick panel so at least i'd only be adding a short piece of wire instead of all the way to the front passenger corner of the engine bay and back.

other than cruise everything's great. i was out sliding around in the snow until 2am laughing until my cheeks hurt. not like a maniac, just fun and slow...and sideways
