    I know the 2015 Sho with performance package normally lets you press a button to turn off TC, but my car has several other features that have moved/replaced my button. Image attached to show other buttons. Thanks for the help.

    I didn't think you could turn it completely off without PP. The button on my 2013 is where the lane assist button is on yours. One tap to turn of TC, double tap for sport more, and hold down for everything off. Try the left side instrument cluster menu I have seen other Fords where TC off is in there.

    Same as mine. Instrument cluster left screen go to driver assist menu that's where traction control option is. Have to do it every start up, it gets rather annoying but it's the only way I'm
    aware of.

    Have to turn off with every start up with PP as well.

    OP I didn’t think you could get both the PP and lane keeper. In fact I didn’t think you could get the park assist after 13 or 14 with PP either.

    I just got my 2015 delivered (2 days ago) and where your park assist button is located is where my TCS off button is. When I was buying my SHO I found that a few options such as adaptive cruise control and potentially park assist were not available with the performance package. The only way that I guaranteed that I found a SHO with the performance package was to get the original window sticker from Ford.

    Also check your trunk I believe the 2015 Sho performance package has the delete spare and add tire refill kit

    Hope this helps!

    Funny that your window sticker says performance package but doesn' mention the technology package to have lane keep assist and automated parking. What happens when you press the two other buttons?

    Wonder if your car was misbuilt with the incorrct switches.

    Correct, the Driver Assist Package w/Lane Keep Assist-Park Assist-Adaptive Cruise is not available with the Performance Package. You can get one or the other...

    I'll take a photo later, but in that spot on the left side is a filled in spot, and on the right side is the TCS system. On the '15 you click it once to "disable." You hold your foot on the brake and hold it for 5-7 seconds to completely turn it off. I'm not yet sure the difference between the two modes!

    The once click is disable of just traction control. The long press with foot on brake is to turn off all assistance including torque vectoring, etc. Its a "you're on your own" setting. Engine makes the power, PTU sends it out, and nothing but your driving skill keeps all four paws to the pavement (or not, if that is what you are after).

    Thank you for the information! The 1 click is the "sport mode" and the brake +hold is "full disable."

    On 2013+ PP cars:

    1 click - TC off, ESC still on fully
    2 clicks - Sport Mode, TC off ESC less intrusive
    Hold down - everything off(you're on your own as mknittel says)

    It should tell you what is happening on the left dash screen with a message popping up Traction Control off, Sport Mode, etc.

    So what happens when you press the other buttons next to the sunshade button?

    If they don' perform their intended task, the wrong buttons were installed. This should have been caught by the dealership on P.D.I. but is to late now for a free repair.

    My 13 PP has three buttons forward of the shifter.
    1: traction control
    2: parallel park assist
    3: rear window sun-shade

    There is a M.Y. split where you COULD and COULD NOT get the two together. I don' think 2015 falls in this. I know 16 and later do not.

    I believe 2013 was the only year. 2014 on you could only get park assist are part of driver assist package. No idea about 2010-12

    yep it sure is odd, I just checked the window sticker and it doesn't mention any tech package. Could my car have been wrecked or something?
