Lexus IS Has Secret Cheat Code that Enables Massive Peel-Outs



http://www.realtechnews.com/posts/2176

This makes sense when you think about it. Cars have computers and computers have always had hidden Easter eggs and cheat codes, so it was inevitable that someone would find a cheat code hidden inside a car. Case in point: here’s way to disable the traction/skid control systems called VDIM on the Lexus IS

“start the car with the parking brake on ….then foot brake twice….(keep the foot brake down)….then parking brake twice (keep it down )and repeat till skid light is on the dash…..it will reset when you restart the car”

Apparently, this disables everything but the ABS. Source: VWVortex Forums via Digg

that's pretty cool, now a bunch of Lexus owners will have to replace their tires soon after learning about this

I found a cheat code for my 540, when I slam the pedal next to the brake pedal police shows up soon after

Turn the key to aux, press in the button to the left of the OBC display and hold it, then turn the key to on. There is a huge list of data you can get from that, search on the net and you'll find the list. You also have to go to function 19 to unlock them all, but you'll find out more about that online somewhere.
