Can you send a pic of the skid control ECU you tapped into?

Here is the skid control ECU. It is under the dash in-between the parking brake and brake pedal. At least on our cars (2003 & 2004 V8s). The red arrow points to the plug you'll need to unplug and work with.

Find the red/white wire, cut it and tap it into the red/blue wire.

That's it! Once you plug in the modified TRAC switch, it works as intended. The switch lights up at night, pushing it anytime causes the "VSC OFF" light to come on.

You're the man! Thank you for the detail and insight. I spent WAY too long modifying my switch to the on/off mode instead of momentary. I ended up sorta getting guitar string to work, but it feels super fragile and may get stuck in the on position... in any case, I'm gonna grab some wire taps from ACE today and see if I can tap the two wires together.

It's done! My '04 has the same procedure as yours. I spliced the red/white into the red/blue. I modified my switch to finally work consistently. I actually took apart the DAC button to get the exact dims and wire thicknesses I needed to get it to work. I ended up using guitar string (high E and a G string) to match the components of the DAC switch.

When I hit the button, the CDL light comes on, but no engagement of the locker, and the VSC Off light comes on as well. Everything seems to work as intended!

Thanks so much for the help @klavender1

So I did the VSC off mod and the vsc light comes on and I can spin the wheels with the throttle not being cutoff, but it appears that ATRAC is still enabled. I thought ATRAC was disabled when VSC is off?

Any help? Thanks!

ATRAC is separate from VSC.

You didn't do anything new - if you read the rest of the threads, wiring for 03/04 is detailed for using a stock switch and modding the switch is also detailed.
