    Traction Control

    Does my car have traction control, if so is it possible to switch it off. Just curious really more than anything else

    Oh the car is a 1.9 cdti (150)bhp Sri

    i have wondered this,

    im sure i read somewhere about holding the sports button but i tried it and did nothing, i think i must have read that about a different car

    ill be intrested to see answers to this, but have you actually managed to get it to kick in yet? ive only put my foot down a couple of times but both it just pulled through it, no flashing lights or feeling like the TC has cut in like it did on the G?

    hi andy hold the sport button down with the engine running until it flashes esp off where the mileage counter is mate, to turn it back on just press it again and it flashes esp on.
