    Hey fellow truckers,

    I have an 02 kw w900l with a c15 motor.
    My problem is, it has ASR (anti slip resistance). I need it turned off. Reasons are that I drive a lot of gravel, sand, mud, and snow covered lanes. It drops the torque when the ecm detects wheel slippage and I've had to be pulled up drives to barns while other drivers have no hassle at all.
    I've called kenworth and cat shops and have no idea what I am talking about, has anyone ran into this problem and how to turn it off?
    Thanx

    There should be a fuse in the fusebox for it. My 03 T600 had one for it.It also had aswitch on the dash to override it.

    I do have the over rude switch and I've removed what appeared to be the only fuse in that circuit but I got into some today and like a bad penny the ###### thing is still haunting me!
    I wonder if the engineers actually test these ideas before they throw em into a truck....

    That switch may have been to disable the ABS system.

    I passed the third grade three times....my spelling is amazing!
    You're probably right, I found yet another fuse so I'll try this theory in the morning

    Has anyone figured out how disabled the ASR feature? Mine is on all the time, and the switch will not override it.
