    Default does every vec c have tc??

    just been reading thru the posts and saw that you could replace the blank button at the bottom of the alarm if you have the blue switch?? but not sure if mine has tc? or do all vecs come with tc as standard and you cant swith them off on the early models if the switch isnt there? cheers!

    1.8's don't and apparently neither do the later facelifts. To check, open the bonnet and behind the battery compartment there will be a little silver box with 4 hoses coming out of the top of it. This is the ABS module, on the side of it it will say either nothing or TC or ESP. If it says one of the latter two then you either have Traction Control or Electronic Stability Control.

    For one you will have TC and a switch stands a good chance of working on yours.

    It can't be disabled via a remap to my knowledge.

    That rule didn't work on my car. I got the right answer by looking at the list of equipment fitted to my car in EPC.
