What years and models came with traction control?
Posted 23 March 2011 - 02:48 PM
Im kinda curious because I live in a rather extreme location and alot of the time I get stuck where Ive got just 1 tire spinning on either side of the car and if the traction control suby made actually worked well that would be pretty useful just for those ocasions.
its my understanding that it basically just uses the ABS which Ive got, would it be possible to make my '95 legacy have TC by swapping whatever electronics Id need? Im guessing it would be either pretty easy or a nightmare...
Has anyone had it, i mean did it work well or no? Id pretty much just want it for being stuck, never driving. ANd id imagine it would be easier than like finding a LSD rear end or something.

a 3.9 may be hard to find but a 4.11 or a 4.44 should be easy, ~$150.00.
what car, year, model, trans, do you have??
the other thing to try when you get 1 wheel spinning on the front and rear is to apply a little bit of brake.

Yeah applying brakes does help, lol if the ABS worked all the time..Ive got a loose connection somewhere i need to hunt down, it works like every other time i start the car haha. Perks of beating the crap out of the thing every day.

i learned this when i swapped the ECU in my 98 outback and got a cel for the TCS. the fix included checking the resistance/ continuity on the unit under the passenger seat.

95-96 FWD only legacys. If I found an actuator and a TCS computer, I'd be all over it. It would be fairly easy to wire in, and there's a link to the wiring diagrams in that thread too.
