Duh...why didn't we all think of this before?

To disable ABLS, simply turn off VDC.

So simple.

should i take a pic of the manual? :laugh:

page 5-32 in my 2007 LE manual:

The ABLS system is always ON unless the system detects brake pad overheating. If high brake pad temperature is detected, it will turn OFF, but normal brake function will continue. ABLS will function even when the VDC system (if so equipped) is turned OFF.

page 5-33, under VDC system:

If the vehicle is operated with the vehicle dynamic control system off using the VDC OFF switch, most VDC functions will be turned off. The VDC system will try to transfer power from a slipping drive wheel to one with more traction when the VDC system switch is OFF. The Slip indicator will flash if wheel spin is detected. The ABS will still operate with the VDC system of

my '08 says the same thing. I'm sure his '05 manual says the same thing too.

You guys got me confused!!!! I think on my 2010 with VDC it either disables abls or limits it. I know with VDC off when I have a tire off ground they both spin. And can spin all four in 4hi/4lo. :hi::hi:

i have no idea on where my manual is. i think its in the garage somewhere.

let me ask you something. look at my post count, look at my posts. WHY would i get on here and tell you something if it wasnt true? why would i tell you that when VDC is off my truck does NOT activate ABLS if it wasnt true? i have nothing to gain by saying it doesnt if it did. ON MY TRUCK, when VDC is ON it activates the slip light, cuts power, and applies the brake to the wheel slipping. with VDC OFF, it does none of that. what do i have to gain buy telling you a lie?

I think we just found the key to turning off the ABLS system. If you could trick the brake temp sensors into thinking it was overheating, it would shut off.

when i turn vdc off i can do donuts all day long. if it limits... it does a poor job at it. I just tried it out here in the snow no "slip" light ABS still works.
