    Default Electronic Stability Control - is it fitted?

    Does anyone know whether my 58 plate CDTI 150 Auto SRi would be fitted with any form of Electronic Stability Control? The reason I ask is that I had a close call yesterday when another car pulled in front of me on a roundabout - I managed (somehow) to avoid the collision and miss the island, kerbs, signposts etc eventually getting control of the car back and continuing on my way - I just wondered whether I am a stunt driver or if the car has some electronic aids that helped me get the thing under control?

    it will have abs as standard which is designed to allow you to manouvre the car under heavy breaking.
    if you had tc then it would flash up next to your abs warning light when you use it.

    Facelift Vectras apart from some early production models no not have TC or ESP if they do not have a V6 engine or IDS or ESP fitted at the factory or retrofitted.

    All non-V6 pre-facelifts ( and some early non-V6 facelifts) on all engines except 1.8 petrol came with TC as standard but without ESP.

    Well I guess I'm a better driver than I thought! Thanks for the info guys - I've recently come into possession of Op-Com so when I figureout how to load that and read the cars brain I'll check to see if ESP and TC are present but as an ex Co car I suspect it's gonna be bog standard!

    Do you mean the ABS pump behind the Battery Box?

    yeah, the ABS pump has a module attached to it.. On the side of this are the numbers and info that indicates what type you have..

    Just had a peek in the dark (and rain) there is a yellow sticker on the module under the pump with some numbers/letters in black - will take a closer look but it doesn't say ESP or TC on it like some Pics I found on Google.

    It'll have a switch on the dash if fitted that when pressed will produce a warning light on the dash.
