Gerneral Questions

What does the DTC really do? When is the best time to use and not use it?

... next time when ur stuck in snow, mud or watever. dont press the button and let see if you will EVER get out.]\

what kinda answer are you looking for? i can tell you if you hold that thing down for 5 seconds, then you can do a burnout without the computer cutting off the power.

Yeah really. You get an answer that you dont like (but its the correct answer) and then you try to call him out? Not cool.

Like he said, theres plenty of threads about what the meaning is, or you can read the manual(theres a lot of good info in there about other things as well).

However, turning if off when I was driving in the snow helped me move along instead of say in place. So, I concur with the previous answer.

Hey guys! We met up with Lee (OP) yesterday and he's a cool guy.

Remember, he's still a n00b! lol! So, take it easy on him.

Karl, just in case you don't know who Lee is. He's the guy that got separated from the group at the Auto Show. lol!
