    Default Facelift Question regarding traction control

    Does the facelift have the TC or as its called now the ESP connectors under the blanking switch? And if so has anyone shoved a switch on and does it work.. sorry for the way i have worded this lol

    I havent tried it, but I have read a few other threads on the site and it seems that NO is the answer.
    Something to do with the wiring on the facelift. The blue plug is there but it doesnt do anything!
    I am sure that if that is the wrong answer then someone will let you/me know!

    TC was dropped on the facelifts. The V6 Elite and Design have ESP+ as standard. As the others don't have TC as standard, the switch won't do anything. Not sure if there is even a plug behind that would at least illuminate the switch.

    There was a thread somewhere else on this (TC on the facelift) and people were saying that the facelift doesn't have TC - even though the brochure said it did!

    I'm now confused as well Ade! I gave the above info on what I'd read from some facelift owners. I'll go back in the corner and let them pop in a reply now!

    Quote from manual

    Electronic Stability Program (ESP)

    ESP improves driving stability when necessary in any driving situation regardless of the type of road surface or tyre grip. It also prevents the driving wheels from spinning.

    The system monitors vehicle movements. AS soon as the vehicle starts to swerve (understeer/oversteers) engine output is reduced (the sound of the engine changes) and individual wheels are specifically braked. This considerably improves the driving stability of the vehicle on snow and ice and on wet or slippery road surfaces.

    ESP is ready for operation as soon as the ignition is switched on and control indicator (this is the warning triangle with car and wiggley line) goes out.

    Control indicator flashes when ESP is in action.
    So whats all that mean then lol

    As I understand it, the facelift vec will only have ESP if you have the sport button, which as I understand it means you will also have the TC button.
    Again I am prepared to be corrected!!
