If the vehicle is stuck in snow, mud or sand, and seems to lose engine power, switching off certain features of the AdvanceTrac system may be beneficial because the wheels are allowed to spin. This will restore full engine power and will enhance momentum through the obstacle.

To turn off the AdvanceTrac system, press the traction control off switch. The off switch could look like either of the two graphics shown. Full features of the AdvanceTrac system can be restored by pressing the traction control off switch again or by turning off and restarting the engine.
