    How to turn off Traction Control?

    Hello,

    Didn't know if anyone can help me here, I have just got an Astra Coupe (v.nice) and I am having issues with the Traction control and want to turn it off.

    I'm not just being strange wanting it off, its just on my way into work everyday I need to pull into small gaps on a busy roundabout and if i wheel spin even the slightest, the TC kicks in and takes away all my power and applies the brakes gently - which although is only for half a second, I it leaves me stranded in front of oncoming cars!

    I asked this on a similar forum and was given this link - page1: http://img110.imageshack.us/my.php?l...tcoptpage1.jpg - which looks like just what i need but unfortunately I can only find Page1! if any one can help I would appreciate it.

    Thanks

    James

    Its been covered more times that I care to mention... If you dont have a switch to turn it off then you will need to fit one - http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.php?t=47924 - see the how to's for that..

    I have switable TC on my car but never found the need to switch it off, it lets the wheels spin quite alot before kicking in, any more wheelspin and you would not be moving away too fast anyway.

    The how to was written before anyone knew about the existance of the standard loom stc so heres' the pt no.s that make it a 'factory fit' jobbie...

    Switch 90437527
    Loom 9270597
    Dash piece (black) 90437593

    £20 ish for all parts

    I assume you've got a gunmetal centre console - be warned, a VX dealer's head will implode trying to find the correct part, so contact LMF, and they will be able to sort you out easily.
