Q: Can you raise the electronic speed shutdown point?

asked by on

I have installed Y rated tires can you raise the electronic speed shutdown point?

Hi there. You would have to either reprogram your computer to accommodate for the speed change or change out the speed sensor in the transmission to confuse the computer to allow the vehicle to go faster than the speed limiter. If you need further assistance with your vehicle speed limiter, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
