Is there any way to bypass the "Service Traction System" warning that pops up? I have narrowed the issue on my car to be either something with the ABS computer, or faulty grounding. I ran a few new ground wires to different locations and it seemed to fix the problem temporarily. The weirdest thing is that in order to reset the light, I had to disconnect the harness going to the ABS computer then plug it back in. The light is back off right now, but if I ever need to use the Traction Control (with a quick takeoff for instance) I am pretty sure it will come back on. I have never HAD to use traction control or ABS in any situation, and it wasn't working through the worst winter Germany had in a LONG time, but the constant ABS/TRAC OFF lights on, and the chimes on start-up get annoying. Since so many people have this problem, I was wondering if there was a way to "tune" it out. Obviously if its controlled through the BCM, it may not be possible, just looking for ideas.
