In the guide http://www.m1gst.com/vb/showthread.php?t=47924 it says pin 31 for tc only or pin 25 for tc and eps?
I assume eps is electric power steering?
no no no .... ESP not EPS
ESP is Electronic Stability Programme
some have TC
whereas others have TC and ESP i think
the "How To" does say EPS but im pretty positive its a typo and means ESP
right. how do you tell the difference? i have the triangle with the skidding car on it so assume its just tc?
now im in unchartered territory! sorry im not really that clued up on this subject so will have to pass and let some1 else take over....would rather stop now instead of givin u duff info.
Sorry i couldnt help
Wheres all the techies when u need em!
right...ive done a quick search using electronic stability but not much conclusive info is found. The skidding car symbol u see is the TC but I do believe the ESP also uses the same symbol!
The only conclusive way according to the search is to visit ur Vx dealer who should be able to tell u (for free) whether u have ESP or not. Believe it was only standard on turbo models and an option on others with the "dynamic" options pack.
Another thread i came across mentions that the ESP models have a larger bulge in the drivers floor area - ie if u were to try and fit mats from a non ESP model they wouldnt fit.... sounds bizarre but maybe worth having a look.
I'd do a search yourself and see... sorry this reply seems to be goin on and on but it looks like another one of Vauxhalls very grey areas.
Is it the 'brake as hard as you like and take your hands off the wheel and it stops in a straight line' thing? If it is, I am 99% sure I have it. I tried a search but I always get confused with these things.
What difference does it make anyway? It only has one set of instructions, ie for pin 25 and nothing for pin 31.
sounds pretty drastic! not a manoevre i'd like to attempt unless really necessary....
now this is defo the point at which im gonna surrender... hey i only have a lowly 1.6 and never had a Vx up till now....so defo time for sum1 else to take over.
Im still gonna watch this thread like a hawk! cos i would like to know myself so if any1 else asks i can be less of a coward and hopefully help them! lol
Its best to try it in the snow really....
Just got to hope a boffin looks in here...
Thank you for the input... this is my 8th vxl or something, but have never really looked into the tc/esp thing.
Yeah....sadly Geoff is away this week - not back till Sunday and he's the usual mod for this section so thats why ur stuck with Ffoeg's apprentice! lol
