Sport mode not engaging

At first I thought I just wasn't understanding how to do it but after looking at a YouTube video I found that I'm doing it right but I just can't get my sport mode to turn on. I held the brake and pressed the traction control button twice but it just goes back and forth from advancetrac on and & off

My car was salvaged , is there anything they might have disabled when they repaired the car from the accident?

It dosnt sound like the issue your having is with sport mode but traction control? Traction control and stability are different from sport mode.. Sport mode is when you out the car Into the S mode which is below D-drive.. Once in sports mode you can let the car auto shift for you but only utilizes 5 gears or you can preas the + and - to do it yourself which will allow you to utilize all 6 gears.

Traction control turns off with just the press of the traction button and adv traction control turns off when you hold the brakes and hold down the traction button for 5 seconds.. Hope that helps

Ahh your talking about the sports mode steering option. You access that through your options on your steering wheel it's actually fairly easy flip through the options till you see steering there will be a comfort/sport/normal (or something like that lol) and select it through the options

It's only available on V6 Premium with performer package or the GT's .. That's what I've heard.. Luckily my v6 has it.. And you do feel a difference.. Sport lets you feel everything and well comfort is super light

Yes, 2013+ GTs have it and the 2013+ V6 performance pak does as well. This is the 3 modes of Traction full, sport, off. My past V6 premium did not have traction control sport mode. My new GT does.

My V6 premium had sport mode steering and sport mode shifting, but not sport mode traction control.
