Thank you for this. Great stuff that will benefit many for many years. Regarding the pink wire, if I simply wanted to just turn off vsc, would it work if I just skin it a little bit to expose the wires inside and connect this to the ground? In other words, if I didn't want to cut the pink wire but I just connect it to a ground, would this work to turn vsc off? Thank you in advance for any feedback.
Hi, thank you for your message. I am attaching a pic here of a rocker switch that I got from ch4x4. If I may ask, where would the pink wire from the ecu connect? Where would the ground connect? And where would the other end of the cut pink wire connect? Obviously I am not electrically inclined so any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.If you don't cut the wire and ground it separately from the center diff lock detection switch, then your diff lock indicator probably will not work correctly. I'm not certain if that would keep the vsc off reliably, and thats not how I would go about it. I realize that the first images don't make that very clear.
Thank you for your response. I’ll start working on this.The switch in that diagram looks like a typical on-off switch. If you cut the pink wire and connect it to #2 and connect ground to #3 then you should be able to turn the vsc off. You would need a different switch with another position to connect the other side of the pink signal wire and turn the vsc back on. The other terminals are for lighting of the switch itself.
Ive been thinking about this. one side of the switch is off, the other side is just simply disconnected since the pink wire is cut. What is the status of the vsc in this case? It is neither on nor off...and would this have an effect on the car?Thank you for your response. I’ll start working on this.

Thanks for all your help. I've disabled vsc successfully. I'm still unsure what the open position does to the vehicle or if I should be concerned if driving in open position. But for now, I am happy that vsc is off.the original post mentions that " an open/OFF position which turns off the TRAC and VSC" is an option. In most case there is no need for it. If you just want to disable the VSC, you can cut the pink wire and connect it to ground. As others have mentioned, you dont need a switch to do that.
I'm confused on whether grounding that wire will disable the atrac. I have to kill the green blinking and alarm.
Will this work?
And it is very hard to rally slide / drift the 100 with vsc. My 99 was so much fun. The 04 is very much under nanny control on gravel roads.
Thank you for the write up. I need to get this done to my 04.
Will doing this mod turn off the green beeping light that slams on the brakes for no reason?I was OK living with the occasional VSC beeping at me--but today it applied a front brake while going around a freeway cloverleaf. That's it--you only get one chance to try to throw me off the road. I grounded the wire as detailed above...not worried about adding a switch or anything.
This is sorta satisfying right now, but I might have to pull the bulb out of the cluster eventually. Maybe it'll burn out first--that would be nicely convenient.

Does the ABS still work when you disable VSCMine wasn't green I don't think...but assuming it's the same VSC system, yes this will prevent any future unwanted braking.
