    Default 3.0 v6 cdti tc switch

    i know the tc switch thread has been flogged to death,i have search the archive and can't find anywhere if anyone with a pre-facelift 3.0 v6 cdti has tried the switch and more importantly if it works.

    Neil, as yours is a Design V6 it will have ESP+ (Electronic Stability Programme). I thought that meant that it would have had the TC/ESP switch fitted as standard.

    Some of the cars that should have had the switch as standard at the factory, never had them fitted. There was a Field Remedy on it and the switch (and loom if necessary) was fitted FOC by the dealer (if the car was inside warranty) - although it seems to only relate to the GSis and of Sep 2003 this was rectified in production.

    So, not really any clearer in your case. It will definitely have ESP+, but it's still 50:50 if the switch will work. I'm assuming you have the blue plug? For a tenner you may as well give it a go.

    Don't forget, if it does work you're not just turning off TC, you're turning off the ESP+ system, so careful on those corners! lol

    Nope! If it doesn't switch the T/C off and the warning triangle on the dash does not light up when pressed then Tech 2 will not get it working
