Re: Traction control

Re: Traction control

You can't turn it off, only the ASR.

Re: Traction control

You can turn of TC, not ESP. Turning off the ASR turns off the traction control.

Re: Traction control

Whereabouts on the dash is the TC / ASR button to turn this off as I only know of the "lock doors" & "Stop n Start" buttons.

All the buttons I have above the radio is the "Door lock / unlock" and to turn off "Start n Stop", all the rest of the buttons in both directions are blank covers 7 can't be pressed.

My APE is a standard 12 plate apart from a Dump Valve and Air Filter, i'm not bothered about switching this or that off, i'm sure the car does have ESP or traction control as they are a safety feature of todays cars.

Not standard fit though. Normally only an option or extra with certain packs when the car is new.

As I said, if fitted it'll have the button to deactivate the ESP.

Which light?

I'd be very surprised they're randomly left you're button off the dash.

Does the car have hill holder
