Makes me really glad I put a switch in my old-school VDC, traction control and VDC are the same system in there. Now I'm actually really curious as to the differences and how the new system works.

Did you did it from fuse? That switch. Cause thats what im gonna do soon on mine. Old school vdc is best. When you put it off its stays off all time , and no traction control either. Best from both worlds.

Thanks! Didn't think of a test drive before clearing the codes. Will give it a go today.

Used to have a 2006 Outback 3.0R. which was perfect in every sense. "VDC off" was "VDC off". Unfortunately wrecked in a head on collision (other driver in wrong lane).

Hence me putting the fuse back in and the VDC still being off and my dashboard still being a christmas tree but having a fun time doing donuts.
Do you mean it goes FWD like the old 4eats? Or am I misunderstanding?

@1454 Yup. It was only spinning a front wheel with it out. It actually wouldn't move in that parking lot and it was only about 12"~ of snow.

A switch, but via the fuse. Looks cool and is cool. Stays VDC Off all the way up to (and likely past) 125mph...

Tried removing the 30A ABS fuse again yesterday. Drove the car for 5 minutes to trigger CELs, then reinstalled the fuse without clearing the codes. Unfortunately, the VDC still activates as soon as you try to correct a powerslide by countersteering. I can do donuts (steering wheel pointing in same direction as the car is rotating), but as soon as you try to correct at slide it intervenes.

There are still some other fuses to try (power to VDC ECU). The yaw-sensor is unfortunately integrated into the ABS/VDC unit in the engine compartment, and to disconnect the steering angle sensor the steering wheel has to be removed (a bit too drastic).

Another option is to have my dealer change the software configuration of the VDC control module, to that of a WRX STI (if it shares the same hardware).
