    Very easy to find out, spin the wheels and see if you get a yellow flashing symbol on the dash.

    Also if the ESP/TC 'wavy line/car' icon' appears on the dash (before going out) when you turn on the ignition (part of startup diagnostics), then you have TC, if it doesn't , you don't.

    Will look. Never thought of that, only had the car 6 days. Mind you my other car, a Zafira A 2.0DTI has it, but my mondeo I got rid of last week didnt.

    EDIT just looked - The Zafira has the car in the triangle with skid marks symbol with ignition on. The Veccy hasn't. Is there a diagnostic gauge/bulb check (like the mondy had)? I think then I had to hold the trip button in and turn on the ignition and press it to cycle through the functions.
    Could it be the bulb? Or have I just not got TC? Ah well..

    The TC is fitted, by engine specification, as standard to all but the 1.8
    The warning symbol should appear briefly when you commence the start up
    Also, does the ABS warning light briefly appear beside it?

    You should be able to test by simply applying lots of power in first gear
    The TC should retard the fuel, before applying the brakes

    Again, depends on engine specification and is similar to the Vectra in that the base engine does not have it
    Equally, I did not find it of use

    The abs light comes on briefly. I'm sure I'll not really need it, but just was curious.

    PM me your reg number, and I'll see if TC is listed against your car's build spec.
