Traction Control Off default gizmo

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=33597

This is the first I've seen for this product. $40 is a little steep for deleting one button press every morning. Anyone familiar with this?

At $40, I'd press a button every morning!

Yeah, plus I'm trying to make the habit of turning it off every time I get in the car just as I'm fastening my seat belt as I can hit it just as I'm latching the belt.

$40.00....... and I'm sure it's only a few dollars worth of parts. Someone on this board will come up with the same thing much cheaper if you wait a bit.

I use to work with car electronics and I can tell you that you dont want to install one of these in your car. It will kill the warrenty on your electrical system and the connectors they use are prone to causing shorts.
