If you want to know how to bypass traction control on a 2008 Dodge Charger, now is your chance to find out. The Dodge Charger is probably one of the best 4 door performance sedans you can buy at a reasonable price. Like a growing number of cars, the 2008 Dodge Charger comes available with traction control for aiding the driver in maintaining safe handling on snowy or slippery pavement. If you want to lay down a patch of rubber (hopefully not in traffic), then you’ll need to temporarily bypass the traction control system. The traction control system automatically engages whenever the vehicle is started, so the system must be turned off manually every time you want to bypass the traction control system.
- Locate the traction control switch. This switch controls the traction control function. It is located in the center of the instrument panel near the hazard switch.
- Press the traction control switch. Press the switch until the traction control indicator light comes up. You will see this light on your instrument cluster display.
NOTE: The traction control system cannot be fully bypassed in certain circumstances. The traction control system is still active under braking, which means that pressing the brake will reactivate it. It is advised that you leave the system active in order to enjoy the benefits of the Charger’s traction control system. The system is also reactivated when car is turned off and turned on again. For more detailed information on the 2008 Dodge Charger’s traction control system, it is best that you consult your owner’s manual.
