Mein Auto: 2007 650i Convertible
Smile New Member - Disable Traction Control

Hey there!

I am new to the forum and just starting to check out the threads. I thought I would add a little tip to owners of 650's with auto transmissions. To completely disable traction control, press and hold the DTC button for about 5 seconds.

Happy tire smoking!

Brian

This is also an important procedure when getting the car to pass smog. We had to disable the traction control as the machine wouldn't get an accurate reading.

Same procedure applies to all 3 transmissions. You know traction control is fully off when you see an orange triangle with a circle around it in the instrument cluster.

If you hold the button for more than 10 seconds traction control remains off until you stop/restart the car. ie the button no longer works to re-activate traction control.

What years have the DTC button? My 2007 is at the dealer for a few days but I don't remember seeing a button like that.

As far as I know all years have a DTC button. It's down by the heated seats buttons just in front of the shifter.

See page 88 of your owners manual, which you can download here if you don't have one.
