    Default TC switch

    Helloooo people!

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section....

    I don't seem to have a Traction control switch, but I know I have this option..

    Is it a simple case of "adding the switch" to the correct place? I have had a look behind the blank panels down the right hand side of the H/U but there doesn't seem to be any wires behind any of them?

    If you don't have a blue plug behind the blanks on the alarm light side, you don't have the wiring. Why do you think it's fitted?

    Because the dash light flashes briefly if theres any wheelspin etc? is that right? and it lights up when i turn ignition on and goes out when engine starts..

    if youve got the tc symbol illuminate for a few seconds when you turn ya
    ignition on then you can add the wiring and very possible it will then be
    switchable.

    i added the part missing wiring to my signum and i have switchable tc

    just remove the blanking plate under the alarm button and see if there is a plug behind it.

    There isn't

    Where does the wire connect to? soldering jobby or is there a connector plug somewhere?

    That is weird lol! I think I'll just leave it as is, don't want to start messing around with wiring in that area tbh... unless there is wiring for it but its fallen down the back? Will check it out tomorrow as the head units coming out so hopefully will give me a better view of things
