To turn the system on or off, press the TAS on/off button located on the instrument panel. If you used the button to turn the system off, the traction off light will come on and stay on. You can turn the system back on at any time by pressing the button again. The traction off light should go off. The Traction Assist System, as delivered from the factory, will automatically come on whenever you start your vehicle. The traction off light will come on under the following conditions: • The Traction Assist System is turned off, either by pressing the TAS on/off button, located on the instrument panel, or by turning off the automatic engagement feature of the TAS. • The transmission is in FIRST (1); TAS will not operate in this gear. This is normal. • The vehicle is driven on an extremely rough road. When the vehicle leaves the rough surface, slows down or stops, the light will go off and TAS will turn on again. This is normal. • A Traction Assist System, Anti-Lock Brake System or engine-related problem has been detected and the vehicle needs service. Hope that helps! • If the vehicle has been driven with the TAS system on for long periods of time, or if the vehicle has gone through many several high speed braking maneuvers the system may be automatically disabled. The system will automatically re-enable after approximately two minutes of not using the brakes.

Charlandk- when you push the button on the dash and the yellow light comes on, the trac system is off and you can spin the tires- if the button is not turned off, it will prevent you from spinning the tires fast.

How do you completely turn off the automatic engagement feature on a 2011 chevy silverado 1500?

there will be a switch down under the radio on the dash that looks like a truck with squiggly lines on it- one push shuts off traction control and will notify you it is off- if you hold it for about 6 seconds, it will shut off both traction control AND stability control and then you won't have any of that on.
