Default Q: 2005 traction control?

No way to disable? I've searched here, other forums, YouTube, owners manual, etc.....

My car has no traction control button on dash, on center console, or in center console. What am I missing??????

I've scrolled thru the info section on the cluster and that didbt have a selection either.....

Do I need to get a tuner and permenatly disable the trac control ( which I'd prefer not to if avoidable )
Car won't even chirp second without falling flat on its face right now. I'm installing a edelbrock blower this week and would like to at least get a little chirp here and there....

Negative. That button does not exist. In its place is a filler piece. The shape of the other buttons but definitely does not push. I've pushed hard, it's not broken, it's just not a button....

I’d pull the bezel and see if the wires for the traction control button are back there. Pretty sure the traction control button wasn’t an option. Looks like someone replaced the switch with a blank for some reason.

Dealer says it's a trac control equipped car. Previous owner must have installed this switch set??????
Either way $83 for a new switch set, plug n play, and it should be solved.
