Generally, things like ABS & ESC are plumbed into the wiring so that they cannot be readily isolated or disabled; so unless your glovebox manual tells you that you can disable the ESC, you are probably stuck with it!!

That said, most 4WD or AWD manufacturers now realise that there are times where some wheelspin is essential to forward movement, & so have allowed & documented a way of disabling the systems that seek to stop ALL wheelspin, at least for a short while or up to a certain speed - that should be detailed in your glovebox manual or on the documentation available on/via the manufacturers website... ;)

What's wrong with just pushing the button , I know you have to do it every time you restart the motor .

Fit a mini circuit board relay across the wires to the switch, operate the relay momentarily via the starter signal. Each start will turn it off.
