The Toyota Camry comes with two traction control safety systems. Toyota refers to one system as "Traction Control" and the other as Vehicle Stability Control (VSC). These two systems work together to ensure that your wheels do not spin, which could cause you to lose control. However, Toyota acknowledges that you may need the wheels to spin in certain situations---such as while the vehicle is stuck. Spinning the wheels could help you get of the situation, according to the manual. For this reason, Toyota offers Camry owners an option to turn off both traction control systems.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Bring the Toyota Camry to a complete stop. Place the gear selector in "Park," but leave the engine running.

  2. 2

    Inspect the dash area above the steering wheel. You'll see a button marked "Off." The icon above the text shows a vehicle with skid marks behind it.

  3. 3

    Press and hold the "Off" button for at least three seconds. Release the button when you hear a beep.

  4. 4

    Inspect the odometer. You should see a light that reads "Trac Off." You should also see one that reads "VSC Off."

  5. 5

    Tap the "Off" button to turn the traction control and VSC back on.
