How do you change the programming of a car to make it handle differently in different seasons?

For example, if the car is very sporty, and a slight touch of the gas pedal makes it take off as if you floored it, can you change it for winter driving? So if you give the gas pedal a slight touch, it will speed up the engine a slight amount, instead of acting like you floored it? Then you can drive on snow and ice without losing traction.

What kind of mechanic would know how to change the programming that way, and how much would they charge? And how hard would it be to change it back at the end of the season?

Okay now I started a domino affect lmao sorry Rumplestiltskin you can't change the programming of a vehicle just for fuks sakes ya moron. That is why there are all kinds of different kinds of cars out there to choose from. You want a truck you buy a truck and so on and so forth people don't just reprogram vehicles lol you can add things and mod cars but changing the entire infrastructure of the way the car controls no donkey balls that's not going to happen. It would be a waste of time.

Depending on the year make and model it can be done. However it wouldn't be cost effective. A better solution is to use traction control.

I've got a 97 dodge dakota 3.9L v6. When the gas tank is 1/4 full and it's cold outside the motor cranks and doesn't want to start. It tries to start but its like it isn't getting in fuel or fire. I just had the battery checked today and they told me it was bad. Do you think the battery could be my problem or the fuel pump? What's your opinion?

When battery voltage is low a lot of cars mopar products especially will start to shut down certain parts of the car. It is POSSIBLE a weak batt. coupled with the cold, the fuel pump might not be getting enough voltage. Replace the batt. see if that fixes the problem then go from there.

I am a jackass, I am proud of it too. You are wrong if it only does it when so much fuel is in the engine then it has absolutely not a damn thing to do with the battery. Once again, battery and fuel have zero things to do with each other. Maybe you should take yourself a class in basic mechanics cowboy.
LoL

Actually I believe it is possible if the fuel pump has less voltage and the the fuel is lower level would require more pick up on the pump and in turn require more voltage to make that pick up. I mean to me that sounds basic. (Scratch my head)

Gas sits in a tank not the engine. Also I beleive the fuel level has nothing to do with it, but merly a quincudence he noticed a few times. I never said I was right. You can't diagnosis a car remote via the Internet this is all speculation. I said it was POSSIBLE

Let me guess you in your late teens early 20's maybe in the automotive program at occ? I get it you've been there your learning some stuff and that's cool but until you'be been there you need keep your cocky little mouth shut cowboy lmao
