Traction control

Any one know if the 2002 Camaro 3.8L has a TCS on it and if it can be dissabled? I want to learn to drift with this car. I've already installed a Detroit locker.

This... You may have a hard time drifting in dry conditions with the 3.8 though. But if you don't have a traction control button I don't believe your car came with it.

If it has traction control there should be a switch that says ASR where the fog light switch would go, right above the radio

If you don't have the ASR switch then your traction control is always on. Your best bet would be to pull the TCS fuse under the hood. That's what I did and I didn't have any problems with it.

EDIT: actually don't do this. I was just thinking and last time I pulled that all it caused was reduced engine power light to come on

I don't have a ASR switch and I don't have traction control. Are you sure you have traction control?

Yeah I'm pretty sure, I've got a fuse for it anyway

I notice in my 02 rs when I installed my radio that there was a pig tail for something next to the fog switch. Is that the ars connection. And if so if I have the switch and connect it was does it do. I know I do not have traction control as it will break the tires loose if I give it to much gas if the roads are wet and doesn't stop unless I let off of the gas.

I have the wiring for the ASR too but I don't have traction control

Yep. I believe all cars were wired the same, but don't have some options.
Mine is a base 01 v6. No monsoon, power antenna, cd changer, power windows/locks, asr or hatch release, but it is wired for them.

My understanding was that if you do not have a switch, you do not have traction control.

Correct. I was just saying that the cars are wired, need fuses/relays and switch to have it.

Check your RPO codes

NW9 is the code for Electronic Traction Control
