    TRACTION CONTROL on my 2004 ts Astra CDX

    Hey guys i have a 2004 ts Astra CDX and it comes with traction control.

    I dont have a switch and i want to have the option to be able to switch it off. Ive gone onto ebay and found someone who is selling the switch and the wiring loom however i dont know how to install it. I have searched through the forums and on other sites as well and im getting alot of mixed answers as to whether its possible or not or the install guides are pretty vague. some poeple say its just a matter of connecting a simple wire, some people say i wouldnt do it because its tied into other things like the abs and its really left me at a point where i dont know what would be the right way. Im happy to get a professional to do it as i dont want to f**k up my car for the sake of saving a bit of money. Has anyone done it and can anyone give me some concrete advice ? any ideas and help would be much appreciated Click here to enlarge

    Thanks guys,

    Pete

    I'm sure you can get all the advice and probably even a "how to" if you visit UK site www.astraownersclub.com
    The guys on there will be only too willing to help you through it . . . . although I am equally sure there are guys on here that have done the mod and should be able to give you advice also.

    rude one has done it I believe (he was telling me at the OA cruise)

    i looked into it about a week ago, it involves quite a bit of fiddling with relays n so forth

    I've also done it on my turbo Vert - NOT sure if it's ALL exactly the same process for the N/A variants...if you are able to find out about that part of it, I can supply you with info as to how I did mine...

    FYI it is a very fiddly excercise and you need to be very careful with some of the wiring work involved, for me now I have it, I don't use it much if ever at all, so could've saved myself the bother...
