    Hondata Traction Control

    Hi Everyone,

    I am currently considering purchasing a Hondata FlashPro for my 2015 Civic Si Coupe (stock except rear sway bar), in preparation for adding a turbo and short ram. From what I’ve read, the FlashPro disables traction control on the vehicle when flashed, which logically would make the traction control button useless. I want to keep traction control in the stock format, as I live in the Midwest and it is absolutely necessary in the snow. Is it possible to reflash the ECU and keep the function of the traction control button?

    Thanks.

    Oh thank god! That’s perfect, because this car is still going to need to be daily-able. Did you notice any issues with it?

    In dry summer conditions, a stock Si can trip the traction control in first gear and second gear. The ability to toggle it is extremely nice, even if I rarely use it

    If you're stuck in the snow, turning off the traction control gives a better chance of becoming unstuck. You can't pull out of a slippery spot if your wheels don't spin at all.

    Hmm never thought about that honestly. I haven't seen real snow for a few years.

    Yes, being in Dallas, I can see how that is likely.

    I also like full power to my drive wheels. I can monitor my wheel spin sans nanny help, tyvm. again.
