First of all Hello fellow Charger Owners! I am new to this forum and i have a question. I had this guy tell me that if you turn the key towards the start position for 10 seconds or until a beep while going 10 miles an hour it will completly disengage the Trac Control, Is this true? And will it hurt my car to do this...:nervous s

you dont have to do it for 10 seconds but it does work on most cars. some people have said it depends on the build date but im not sure what the exact date is. It works on my car. I dont do it that often but I havent ever had problems with it

Thanks! does it create any problems for the computer in the car? And did you get a better tire smoker when you did it?:smoke:

Build date cut-off is April 2006, and even then, some 04/06-built cars it works on, and on some it doesn't.

(works on mine :D)

yeah it has to do with which computer you have in your car, one member a long time ago confirmed that when his cpu went bad and dodge replaced it with a new one under warranty his WAS able to do the turn key.

From what I have seen there are roughly 3 different computers they have used, the original, an interum one that was short lived ( evidence has been seen of this by the fact that some 06 models cannot use the no esp mod's or turn key) and the new one which works for no esp mods and turn key.

Pressing the button on non SRT models turns it off about 50%, you can spin a little but it still protects you from yourself, where with the turn key, you can be as stupid as you want, lol.

PS works on mine, I don't do it often but I haven't seen any problems. Only thing is you have to turn your car off and back on again to reset it.

It chimes and you get a yellow ESP/BAS and squiggles (tires marks out of control, lol) on your dash.

Its really fun, step on the brake and the gas, get it to 2500 rpm, off the gas and gun it and cut the wheel. Lots of squealing!

Is there a consensus on the build dates of what computers were used at what time?

Mine is a 1-06 build and I am looking at the no-esp mod soon.
