    Don't think it works at all on the 1.8's as they do not have TC.

    I would say 1000000/1 against as the 1.8 didn't have TC as standard & the switch only seems to have worked on the earlier C's

    It's complete pot luck if the switch works or not, all the blue plug means is that the switch will light up at night.
    For the sake of £10 it's worth it if only to fill a blank.

    The switch will not activate TC. The switch will only turn it off if your car already has it, thats only about 50:50 too
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Just checked the dash lights on my car and the traction control loght doesnt light when you turn the ignition off,

    I guess that means that its not on my car, I cant believe that they took it off these cars in the first place.

    I guess its not as easy as getting it enabled with tech 2?

    No its not as easy as tech 2. But just cos the light doesn't come one doesn't mean you don't have it I don't think. Basically, go out and try to spin the wheels, best way to tell
