Question Traction Control Bypass?

Hello,

I'm looking for a go-around to avoid replacing a $1,050 traction control module (computer) for my 1999 323 Is.

I have 62K miles on a 5spd manual transmition.

The traction control module apparently isn't getting proper readings from the rear wheel sensor(s) that were recently replaced and is arbitrarilly egaging the traction control which has effects on my throttle and also engages the ABS according to what kind of slip it is reading. I live in Cali' and don't need traction control as I drove rear wheel cars in snowy conditions back east for most of my driving life. Is it possible to disengage/bypass traction control without sacrificing other related/tied-in systems?

I have been told that irt wasn't possible in my car because the integrated systems would be effected, but I'm not entirely convinced by my mechanic and open to suggestions.

Please inform me as to how or direct me to the proper resource to accomplish this task.

Thanks!

this might be a dumb response, but could you just hit the button when ever you turn on your car or something

or just wire the button or convert to a switch that would always be in the off position.

If you use the ASC button to turn it off you lose traction control and stability control.
