    Default Should my 06 Signum design have traction control?

    I have an 06 plate signum design 150, but only noticed since having the snow, it doesn appear to have any sort of tc, the wheels just spin, no hint of any sort of power cut off, anyone any ideas?

    Pretty sure it was only on the facelift V6 models.

    My facelift V6T has TC/ESP.

    I did some research on the tis wiring diagrams and testing and found by grounding one of the ESP plug pins to earth temporarily it turns the tc off, but I havnt had chance to install the missing wire between the body control unit plug and the ESP unit itself yet to enable the button.

    After this weeks snow I dont think Ill bother. The traction control on the my signum is nothing like as agressive as it was in my old Astra, and will only kick in if the wheels are really spinning up. A small amount of spin and slip seems to go relatively unchecked and you dont suffer the same power dump as I did in other cars.

    Earlier facelifts have TC.
