dose it automatical turn off when you are in 4 x 4 drive?

I am looking to buy a new / or used F150 with the Stability Control, AdvanceTrac.
Can someone tell me dose it automatical turn off when you are in 4 x 4 drive?
( I understand that the Tundra automaticl turns it off ).
I want the Stability Control, AdvanceTrac and the 4x4 on at the same time for driving in snow.
I have a Subaru that runs it ( VDC ) while in all-wheel- drive and I like that (it also lets you turn it off ).
Also does anyone know when Ford started puting the Stability Control, AdvanceTrac in the trucks ?
I see some 2007,s without and some 2009,s with.

I would ask a dealer but I have learned that they will tell you whatever you want to hear.

Thanks
Milt

These trucks are amazing. everything works better than I expect it to. And yes if you turn off all the nannies, they slide around corners like a flat tracker. Too cool.

No...it will not turn off while in 4x4 mode cruising down the highway. I'm not certain on year it was available in the F150 line...but the 2009 does sound about right.

Good luck...

My 2011 f150 advancetrac hinders the truck greatly, have turned it off comes back on gets me stuck in snow, if i ever get frostbite i will sue Ford. I pulled the abs fuse, that did it for a while then my brakes started acting weird so i had to put it back in. This is no thing to have on a truck. If people out there need this to drive because they dont know how then they should request it, not stick the rest of us with this bunch of BS! If anyone knows of a program to eliminate this problem i would greatly appreciate it and im sure others as well.. Thanx

Having owned my 2012 for two years now, I never really paid any mind to this advancetrac/traction control thing until reading this thread a couple days ago.

So I decided to turn it off for grins, and I must say I love the way the truck responds with it off. I will never leave it on again. It really drives a whole lot snappier without it.

I always hated what I would describe as a lag or loss-of-power or hesitation when up-shifting from 1-to-2, and now the shifts are a whole lot crisper with constant power through all the upshifts.

I'm sold, advancetrac OFF.
