I was trieng to do some dounuts on a big parking lot but everytime the car starts to spin the orange anti slip light comes on and reduces power... any way to turn it off? It does this when traction control is suposed to be off. Also a slightly more responsible reason i would need to do this is when i get stuck in snow its a real pain when it cuts my power down when im trieng to get out.

You have to hold down the traction control button while in park for about 10 seconds. Both traction control and stabilitrak should turn off. The indicators for both being turned off should light up.

Thats exactly correct....the button is located on the centre console.....just to the rear of the cupholder.......the button performs 2 functions. A quick press will turn off Traction Control....and as you (Phantm006) say, holding it down for about 10 secs, turns off both Traction Control and Stabilitrak....

Just hold the button down for 10 secs when you need both functions to work again.......

And I believe that after you turn off the ignition and restart it will default to both systems on.

I did get stuck (yes, in snow, and no..I wasn't messing around) I did hold down the button to get both stabilitrack and traction control to turn off HOWEVER it still slightly engaged when i was trying to get out...kinda annoying

Yup, its there to protect the trans. If you are slipping the tires and you suddenly get traction, it kills the internals. Having it even mildly active saves on that.

Why would you want to disable those features? What advantage is there?
