To put in traction control does one need the whole abs assy or can one just change the electronic control box on the abs assy?

Yes the car has abs just no traction control.

Off the top of my head I suspect you need the complete ABS/ATC controller assembly, pump and electrics. Also be aware that ATC will need to interface with the PCM. Unknown if that requires program and or wiring upgrades to work. Keep in mind the ATC limits engine power, (may also signal trans)and applies braking as needed to transfer power to the non slipping wheel.
This would need some careful research to assure the desired result.

on ours, it doesn't. it only pulses the brakes of the fastest spinning wheel.limiting engine power doesn't come til the electronic throttle control.

You need to replace the whole unit. The Teves Mark 20 unit with L.S.T.C. has different valves inside the pump. Easy swap to do. Swap in the whole unit, bleed, viola! traction control!

Ya I seen that I changed the electronic control module and the traction control buTton turns it on and off but like you said Keith there's two extra "valves" on the abs pump. I was b trying to avoid breaking open the system and having to bleed it though. But I guess I'll have to do just that.

Beware that pre-'02 and '02+ ABS units/sensors aren't interchangeable. Completely different systems.

That I know all to well. My mom's trep being an '01 I have to use '01 stuff.

I'll be going back to get the abs pump I got the controller from. Just was trying to avoid having to bleed the system is all.
