    confused T/C or no T/C that is the question

    Having just got behind the wheel of a Veccie Sri 1.9 CDti again after a few years of driving a blue oval it was good to come across the forum as it seems to have all the answers to questions i have regarding my car except this one could anyone tell me how to tell if my 54 plate 1.9 CDti(120) SRi would have T/C fitted as i've had a look at a pdf of the old Vx brochure for the spec and it shows as fitted but with a 1 beside the dot and i have no esp/tc switch on the dash, was it an option on this year?? if it does is it possible to fit the switch and would anyone know the part number of the switch??

    I should really know this bearing in mind i had an SRi 150 3 yrs ago, apologises if this question has been asked before.

    t/c is just there, weather you can switch it off or not is just the look of the draw, get a switch and fit it to find out i'm afraid.....vx sell the the switches for around £15.00 less if your trade...if you look on e-bay beware as they can fetch silly silly money

    How much t/c does is another matter. On some cars it seems to be very intrusive cutting in at the slightest provocation whereas on others, mine included, it does sfa & even less with the BSR remap.

    The 3.0 V6 has the TC switch as standard. Not sure if other engines have it like the 3.2 or 2.8T?

    Mine is a 3.0V6 and it doesnt have the TC switch.
    It also should have had the TA fitted but it never was

    I'll second that, my 2.0T will spin for a few seconds before the TC decides to cut in or it'll cut in way to early. Thank **** I can turn it off
