Icon8 ----ing traction control

What fuse is it to pull to permanently disable the traction. Damn ----ing thing put me in the ditch today on a side road. Was being nice to someone that pulling a wide load, so I moved over to side. ( got 11inches of snow the other day). With the wide tires and the traction control kicking in, it just acted like a suction cup to the ditch. In my old truck i would just giver a little throttle and would be fine. not with damn traction control, it bogs you down like no tomorrow. Yes I did hold the button for six seconds, I do every time I go on a side road but some time it kicks in and sometimes it doesn't.
