I've looked and I can't seem to find the button to disable the traction control. Do you have any idea where the switch is located? Thank You very much for your time and effort relating to my question.

My software doesnt have any pics for the location. Is this an AWD or 4wd?

Actually, this vehicle has both. It has 4 pushbuttons concerning the drive. It has a button that says "4 ( with an arrow pointing down)", "4 (with an arrow pointing up)", "2 (with an arrow pointing up)" and a round button that says "AWD". Would it help if I sent you my VIN #. I'm not sure if that would tell you which version of Tahoe this is. The owner's manual is very generic and doesn't give any specifics other than what the buttons look like. I don't even know if this model can have it's traction control turned off. Again, thank you very much for all of the extra effort you're putting into this for me.

Since it is AWD I dont think it can be turned off or there would be a switch for it

That's no problem. I'm just happy that somebody was able to give me some information, I'm in East TN and it seems nobody around here was able to figure it out. It is a strange request, most people don't want to spin their tires, but since this is an automatic trans, spinning the tires is the only fun I can have while driving it. I'll probably end up buying a late 60's 4 speed muscle car of the Chevrolet variety just so I can get out and smoke the tires. Thanks again for all of your help, I will recommend your service to anyone who asks me.

That only works as a temporary fix. We have the same problem and have to engage the disable button each and every time we turn the engine on. I as well as others would like this to only turn on and engage if and only when we press the traction control button, not the other way around.

The button on ours is below the radio to near the center of the dash panel. It has a picture of a tire with wavy lines. As said in the other comment in order to disengage it you must do it every time you turn the engine on which is extremely annoying since over 90 percent of the time it isn't necessary, nor wanted since it increases engine wear and tear and negatively affects mileage.
