Lexus IS cheat code?
" The Lexus IS evidently has its own cheat code to turn off the traction control. While I think that vehicles like the Corvette should be equipped with four levels of user-determined traction control, I did get a big kick out of this as a member of the Nintendo generation.
Posted on VWVortech Forums, here’s the cheat code:
”start the car with the parking brake on ….then foot brake twice….(keep the foot brake down)….then parking brake twice (keep it down )and repeat till skid light is on the dash…..it will reset when you restart the car”"

The new Corvettes have three options available:
1) Active Handling System
2) Competition Mode
3) No computerized help (You're driving)
ASR – Acceleration Slip Regulation - standard on all Vettes starting in 1992. Ignition engaged, but can be turned off/on by instrument panel switch. Uses engine spark retard, throttle close down and brake intervention to limit rear wheel spin when accelerating. Great in snow, ice, or other slippery street conditions. When working properly “ASR ACTIVE” will illuminate, and you may feel the gas pedal push back against your right foot. ASR is disabled by most experienced autocrossers, who want to control, and occasionally initiate, rear wheel spin to their advantage.
Active Handling System- Optional in 1998, standard in 2002. Combines ASR (called TCS -Traction Control System) with differential braking to counteract gross understeer or oversteer conditions. Ignition engaged, but can be turned off/on by instrument panel switch. A third switch position, Competition Mode, enables Active Handling but disables Traction Control System. The system is great for unexpected situations encountered in street driving. Active Handling is disabled by most experienced autocrossers, who want to control understeer and oversteer, and occasionally initiate oversteer to their advantage.
