    Default traction control

    06 face lift 2.2 direct sri

    i dont have a tc button, but today the roads were slightly i damp, i pulled away from a junction quite hard/fast and noticed a light come on then go off in the lower middle area of my instrument display, it seemed to go off as my front wheels regained the grip - any idears what this light was and if i have traction control?

    if you get a tc swithc and fit it then have the missing wiring fitted then you will have switchable tc

    if yours is a 1.8 then it wont have tc,i dont think theyve ever had tc fitted to the 1.8

    theres always that choice to retro fit it by replacing the abs unit with the tc 1 and get the switch and
    wire it up and i cant see why not it wont work.

    My 2005 diesel Life model had TC and the switch, yet my 2008 2.0 Turbo Sri hasn't got it, which seems odd!
