    Fitting Traction Control 2.2 Sri?

    Will my car have all the plug and play stuff on, or will it have to be wired up. I know I have the plug for the button under my pannel, I just can't be bothered to start running new wires to have the switchable traction. Thanks for any info

    Chances are that you won't have the loom under them panel, and even if it is it won't be wired to anything

    Easiest way is to start anew with the following...

    Parts needed
    90437527 - TC switch - £9.90
    90437593 - TC panel - £1.76
    9270597 - TC loom - £7.60

    Cool, so it is possable then not to run fresh wire from the ecu and stuff and just buy the parts needed to make it work

    pretty much so - the loom has three wires -

    one goes to spare pin in the multi-connector, under the engine bay relay box)
    one goes to earth - front passenger inner wing using
    last one goes to the back of the fag lighter, to light the switch.

    It's exactly the same as the how to - but uses proper VX parts instead of just a plain wire.

    This modification only applies to cars that have traction control already fitted - all it does is add a switch so that you can turn it off.

    It's not easy to fit Traction control to a car that doesn't have it.

    Don't worry about your English - it's very good

    Same as mine mate - and yours has got it for defo

    Look for a 'skidding car' on the dash that lights up when you first turn the ignition on, and goes off after a few secs.

    I already posted the prices and part numbers on post #2 of this self same thread
