    Question Traction control....

    Noticed yesterday (what with the awful weather) that when the tyres lose traction with the traction control active the little orange traction control inidicator lights up on the dash.

    Is that normal?

    It's the same light as when you de-actiate traction control and only lights up when the tyres lose traction.

    It's just that i've never noticed it before.

    Cheers
    Harry

    yep, the light should come on to let you know that the car is taking matters into its own hands (wheels / electronics - oh you know what I mean) for a short while. should go off after the car is stabalised etc
