3. If you turn the car off and you had TC and ST turned off will it remember that or will it default to turning TC and ST back on?
Ozzy answers but the matrix says to start the car or follow the directions below. Sorry, a bit cryptic instructions I realize. The manual felt too wordy ..

Three Ride Control Settings:
  1. Traction Control System (TCS)
  2. StabilTrak System
  3. Competitive Driving Mode

Traction Control System (TCS)
  • Limits wheel spin.
  • Uses engine and brakes to control spin during acceleration. All driving speeds. Maximum driver control.
  • Signals throttle to reduce drive wheel torque.
  • Applies brakes during acceleration in certain conditions (e.g.: pavement to ice).
  • Turn off when stuck in sand, mud, snow, deep snow, loose gravel to assist a lower speeds.

StabilTrak System
  • Electronic stability control.
  • Assists with directional control of vehicle.
  • Activated when computer senses a discrepancy between intended direction and vehicle's actual direction.
  • Applies pressure at any one of brakes to help vehicle steer to the intended direction.

Competitive Driving Mode
  • Allows increased performance while accelerating and/or cornering.
  • Regulates and optimizes the engine, brakes and suspension performance.

Launch Control
  • Available with Competitive Driving Mode
  • Achieve high levels of vehicle acceleration in a straight line.
  • Form of Traction Control that manages wheel spin when launching.

Here's how to leverage these systems by turning them OFF/ON:

Thank you for the reminders and the information on these systems. It definitely benefits the community.
