    okay I finally have one gripe about my truck. last night I had a friend that got stuck in the mud. I came out to help pull him out. I put the truck in four high and turned off all the safety stuff on my truck so I though. hooked up to him and started pulling him out. after about 30s of pulling my tires started to slip and low and behold my truck quite pulling like I lost any and all control of the engine and the ability to shift. would not go would not do anything. This happened three times. I needed to keep from getting stuck myself, so I unhooked from my friend and played with the controls on my truck. I had to turn it off to reset it. I restarted it and then turned off all TSS stuff and put it in gear got myself out. what little I did pull on my friends truck got him up out of the hole he was in but not unstuck. Being the good friend I put my truck in four low and hooked back up to him found that all my safety stuff turned off in four low. here is the problem in four low with the mud here. I could not get the mud to sling off the tires to be able to keep covering ground. so guess what happened I got stuck. fortuitously another friend was there and we had to use a com-along to get us both out. I understand why Toyota keeps the safety sensors active in four high but they need to make so that when you want to go off road you can turn it off.
    okay rant over

    Can't you hold the traction control button below the AC for a few seconds to disable it and allow wheelspin?

    You can, but you need to do it twice. Hold it for three seconds and then you’ll see LSD and trac off. Then release and hold again for three seconds. But this doesn’t turn it completely off. Pretty close. Need to pull the fuse if you want no nannies.

    To be honest, I’ve only heard of people talking about it. Never really looked deep into it because I haven’t found a need for it yet. So I’m unsure if you would pull the ABS fuse or what. There is a fuse box under the hood and in the cab on the driver side. I would imagine it’s under the hood but also unsure if it’s going to throw codes.

    There’s a guy on here that makes a button that you can install and you can kill all nannies with a flip of a switch.

    Somebody help me out in that members name!

    Nothing changed with 2017. Still has all the nannies just no TSS. Or maybe it does have TSS. Point is it still needs the two button presses to shut off nannies.

    Here you go gents and ladies.

    As @15whtrd said, you can turn off nannies with two 3 second button pushes. Or you can get this but generally I don’t mind 6 seconds of operations every time I off-road in 4hi. I shut them off on the street for fun about once a month but like them on as I’ve felt them work in an emergency and they are amazing!

    I took a look at the various fuses for my 2015 and didn't realize that so many fuses work with the ABS & VSC systems.....

    Engine compartment fuse box:
    #10 Stop 15 amp fuse VSC
    #39 ABS1 50 amp fuse ABS, VSC
    #40 ABS2 40 amp fuse ABS, VSC

    In-cab fuse bos:
    #14 ECU-IGN01 7.5 amp fuse ABS, VSC

    I don't know which would give you the desired result by removing it....

    Pulling the ABS fuse won't do anything that turning off the nannies won't do, other than turn the ABS braking off. And you turn the nannies off with the Traction Control button. It has nothing to do with any of the TSS stuff. Even turning off all the nannies just doesn't help too much when your wheels are slipping because our trucks don't have a true LSD or locker. Here's a great thread by @KevinK . Everyone should read and understand this. Traction Control on our trucks are ridiculously complicated. Can't remember if Kevin talks about the Atrac on this thread, but if he does, read it. That maybe the only way to really get unstuck when your wheels are slipping.
