2005 158" Tall Roof. My new job is home delivers in western NC. Problem is long gravel and
rock driveways that are 7-10% grades especially when in snow. When the tires spin the traction
control shuts engine down I'm STUCK!! Pushing and holding switch does't help.
I have to back down and keep trying to make longer faster runs.
IS there any way to eliminate the Traction Control? or any other solution? Thanks

There is an ASR defeat switch. Most NAS aka NAFTA Sprinters have that switch on the console. Check your operator manual.

That said, some comments here have indicated that Fleet purchased vehicles may not have that optional switch/feature. If you own the Sprinter or can make the request, it can be added after the fact.

On my 2002, mine works like page 171 of this http://aie-services-2.net/Sprinter/2006_VA_UserManual_Sprinter.pdf.
