Custom install of KP Technologies memory module to have tcs auto OFF.

First, you need to order the module from KP Technologies. I have a custom order but here is their website.. This is what the maker had to say...If there is enough interest in this module from the Veloster community we can put this module in production for around $49.99 each (we could still do $39.99 if a minimum of 20 are ordered at one time).

Also, while you have your center facia off..you can take the leds out from behind the pass. seat airbag display switch. No more annoying OFF in orange.

Well, the TCS saved my VT on Sunday. So I'm not sold on leaving it off by default because you never know when you are going to need it.

I was doing 45 on a curve on a narrow 4 lane road in the city and all of a sudden the minivan in front of me locks up their brakes and all the cars around me in both directions start to swerve. I grab the wheel and navigate between the two late model Camry's that are coming in to my lane and come to a stop before any of them. As I'm doing that I see a dolly dance in front of the minivan and smack it in the grille and then the windshield. Everybody looked freaked out but it was no big deal in the VT.

I could feel the ABS in the brake pedal and the TCS light came on. Hence it was no big deal for me. But it was a big deal for them.

I'm OK with leaving TCS on by default.

This module has memory. In that it will remember if you had it on or off the last time you turned off car. If you had it off, it wiol be off the next time you start car..and vice versa.

This still doesn't seem like a worthwhile mod to me. Especially since it never really comes "on" until you need it. If it ever interferes with something you are trying to do then you can turn it off with the button provided.

Umm... push the button I say take 2 second to do. So 1 hour it took to have it off completely.......so realistic you have to push it 30 times to make up for 1 min so with this diy mod your saving yourself 1,800 times of pushing the button for 1 hours of work to do this. I find this pointless and lazyness for one thing let alone having that annoying TCS light on. The only thing I found this tread useful is the airbag light turn off. lol!

Same could be said for not doing it. Just saying.
