All right, as y'all have seen i did the leather interior swap in my base model and after reading here, found the harnesses for the power seats. I just put in my cluster that i had sent out for mileage change and I found my traction control wiring taped and shoved way into the dash.

My questions are:

1. Will the traction control actually work and if not what would it take to get them to work?

2. Will there be one for the fog lights and will there be fog light sockets taped somewhere in the engine compartment?

All I was doing was filling in empty holes to make the interior look better. If they can actually function, I might as well.

For the fog light im pretty sure you need the ls wiring for engine compartment MISHNAH i think his name was put ls bumper on his car and swapped the harness. Pretty easy to wire up yourself. Not sure about traction control never seen that question before....

More than likely you will need some programming to get either of those to work

Traction control would be through the PCM and fog lights would be through the BCM

BCM cant be reprogrammed, its a 1 shot deal and would need replacement

PBSS is on the right track; IIRC the fog lights need to be enabled in the BCM if you want to use the factory wiring. The problem is that you can only program options into the BCM once, which means you would have to replace the BCM and have it programmed at the dealer - costing well over $200. Using aftermarket wiring would be cheaper unless you need to replace the BCM for some other reason.

I have never heard of anyone swapping traction control into a car. I am fairly certain that traction control is handled completely by the EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module). In short, you would have to get the proper EBCM and BPV or BPMV (Brake Proportioning Modulation Valve or something like that) for traction control. It would involve swapping out or adding and bending lots of brake lines as well.

I don't need a computer preventing me from doing burnouts that I don't do, or to tell me when I am slipping on ice or standing water so I don't grenade my transmission. That's what my buttcelerometer and right foot are for. Wink

Thanks for the heads up! I'll just hook the trac button up to an led that switches on when lights come on and figure out a way to use the fog light button for the hid fogs. I cut the fog wiring for the button about 5" back in the donor car so at least i have some play room.
