I don't want to get into all the wiring either....... So, are you saying to pull the fuse, start engine, hit the ESC button on the dash, replace the fuse and that would disable the ESC completely?Thanks for this information. I am ordering the remote kit (as running wires for a switch just is not to my liking) I have tried the remove/hit the button/replace method and found it works very well.
Start the engine first, may or may not make a difference never tried it.I don't want to get into all the wiring either....... So, are you saying to pull the fuse, start engine, hit the ESC button on the dash, replace the fuse and that would disable the ESC completely?
Thank you very much. I'm going to try it and see how it works for my 2010 4.6LStart the engine first, may or may not make a difference never tried it.
And yes when you hit the esc button after waiting for all the lights on the dash to come on then replacing the fuse you will have all esc functions disabled.
One the 2011 and newer, with the electronic parking brake you will also lose the cruise control function while the esc is off. You have to shut off the car and restart to get the esc and cruise control back.
I haven't been using it since March. I removed it because I was going to sell my car. Now I put the whole thing back on, since I kept the car. Now, the funny thing is that when I press the ON button then only ESC light comes on, now I should press the traction control button but nothing happens....so, I pressed the OFF button on the remote and this massage light up - "Key is not in vehicle"?
Well, of course the key is inside the car..and the traction control is OFF!!! I'm able to burn rubber now it seems that this disables traction control ONLY! other stuff such as cruise control still works. Weird, isn't?
Hmm, that is interesting...@David and Guys!
The gear indicator is "red" right after I start the car (nothing else touched or disable), I didn't check what color it has if I'd put it in reverse. But it doesn't matter, I think.
I went through all my pictures of the setup and I noticed now that I have connected the Fuse Socket Connector reversed - flipped them, so only this would explain WHY I have ESC ligh ON instead of ESC/EPB/AUTO HOLD.
As for the RPM's - I don't see it goes above 6500
Here is a little video test using my GoPro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJiZLM8Tu5U&feature=youtu.be
Again.....try to flip the connector and see what will happen
Pictures before and after:
That means something maybe wrong with one or more connection(s), as all lights should go out until you press the on button on the remote.interested also. did the remote/relay route. when starting the car, all lights come on before i push buttons on remote. cannot seem to get them to go away (and only esc) until i remove harness from car
pretty simple connection. my black wire fell out of the harness so i wired it directly to the relay, but that shouldnt matter. maybe a bad relay? the remote shoudnt be an issue since i can hear it clicking the relayThat means something maybe wrong with one or more connection(s), as all lights should go out until you press the on button on the remote.
Please check the harness wiring and compare the assembled components to the first picture in post #1.
Shifter Mod? Please Explain.You are most welcome, the only thing I feel bad about is took more than five years to share with you all, but better late than never I suppose...
As far as what you get? there are at least three main threads in this forum that discuss the effect of the 'Nanny' on our Genny in excruciating detail!
But in summery, this mod. is about the closest thing to an engine tune we have available to us (the Sedan folks) at this time!
In addition, this mod. coupled with the Ridgit Collar, as well as the shifter mod I am working on, is the closest you will get to a 2015 model for those of us who;
1 - Prefers the shape of the 2009-2014 (G1) model.
2 - Likes the additional power / weight ratio of the G1 model.
3 - Would like to save $20k+.
Here are some nice videos of this mod:

Have fun and please be careful out there...
