Default 3rd Gen (GK5), How-To: Fully disable traction and stability control (VSA/ESC)

Try this at your own risk.

This is for third-generation GK5 Honda Fits.

The button on the left side of your lower dashboard is used to disable or defeat the traction and stability aids.

The manually only describes a process to partially disable traction and stability aids. I finally found a method to fully defeat traction and stability aids (ABS still functions).


Partially disable
-------------------
Press to turn on, press again to turn off. This does not disable traction control in all instances.

Fully disable
-------------------
1. Turn car on
2. Parking brake off
3. Press and hold brake pedal
4. Turn traction control on and off
5. Release brake pedal
6. Parking brake on
7. Turn traction control on and off
8. Press and hold brake pedal
9. Turn traction control on and off
10. Traction control light should be solid and another light blinking

Or, worded another way:

1. Turn traction control on/off with brake pedal on
2. Turn traction control on/off with parking brake on
3. Turn traction control on/off with brake pedal and parking brake on
4. Traction control light should be solid and another light blinking
