Disconnect no. You can disable it by hitting the button in front of the shifter that it shows in the owners manual.

Re: disable traction control

I noticed the other day when I went into sand mode that the traction control was automatically shut off.

Re: disable traction control

I don't know if it still applies to the newer jeeps, but on my WK with the transmission in park and the motor running, if you push the button it partially disables traction control (turns off some of the several acronyms that make up TC), but if you hold the button down it will ding and turn off more/all of the TC.

You can't disable or disconnect traction control completely. You can pull the ABS fuse, which does a bunch of things including throwing a code.... and affect braking.
