    Default TCS?

    Hi again, I've read my car manual trying to determine if my car has traction control and I'm none the wiser! Does anyone know if my car has it?!

    2006 Facelift SRI 1.9CDTi 6-sp

    Thanks guys.

    I think all vecs have TC, but only some have teh apility to turn it off. I might be wrong though. If you boot it, and loose grip does a light start flashing on the dash?

    Im confused H. Are you saying that on facelifts on the V6's have TC at all? Or are you saying the only Vecs with TC are the facelift V6's? If the latter then my preface V6 had it including switch as standard, and the following thread seems to say otherwise

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...=27324&page=20

    I know the switch doesnt always work, but im sure more than just the v6's have TC

    edit: Rights so it would appear that all pre facelift cars except 1.8's have TC. Very early facelift cars except 1.8's also have it. All V6's have it with V6 CDTI's having the button as standard

    What I'm saying Ziggy is that on the face lift Vecs/Sigs only the V6 models have TC. Preface is a different ball game completely. My old pre face 2.0T Siggy had TC.

    Dont mess with the best, cos the best dont mess
