2011 mustang gt advancetrac

Does turning off advance trac also turn off traction control simultaneously?

Before the 5.0 came out I heard that the advancetrac was going to have multiple settings. Not just on or off. I wonder what happened with that?

4 settings for the traction control. On, traction control off, advance trac sport, and advance trac off. Auto and manual are the same I believe.

Look at your owners manual. For sport mode press the brake and press the button twice. For advance trac off press the brake and hold the button down for 5 seconds.

The advance trac is to control drifting and traction is to control forward wheel spin. Turning off Advance trac turns off both systems. Btw if u didn't know, u can adjust the steering stiffness through the MSG center. Sport,standard,comfort.

I never realized how much Advanced Trac was doing until I disabled it. HOLY S***
I did the 5 second cancel and tried a hard launch.,. I still have the erection. Other than the wheel hop, I was amazed!
Also on the 2011 I don't have the steering sensitivity adjustment, although I would like it. Is there a way to get it added?

When at the traqck you should turn advance track off. I turn mine off soon get in car every day. But that is me.

Na ya can't get it added. It's part of the new EPAS system. Electronic power assist steering. It's built into the rack.

If you have a 2011, then yes this is accurate.

See above. Adjustable EPAS is a 12+ feature, but all 10+ have the four-mode advancetrak.
