    So im looking at buying a new center consol...however it has the little compartment instead of the TCS button...
    Could i convert the new one to fit my TRaction Control button or maybe relocate it to the ashtray in a smaller switch?

    Don't see why not. Just need to splice some wires. I just don't know what kind of switch it is, basic rocker, monetary, etc.

    Just pop out the cubby hole and you can put the traction control bezel in there.

    is there any downside to getting rid of traction control?
    besides "effecting resale value"?

    I thought that would increase the value. That's probably the most annoying feature on the car.

    Some suggest deleting traction control as it becomes annoying to turn off every time you start your car. It also can inhibit driving in snow going up hills.

    So you don't enjoy slidding backwards down a hill after the TC stops all forward momentum?
