    Fuse for TC/ESP?

    Hey all,

    What's the TC fuse for the Astra Mk5/H?
    I've tried engine box fuse 23 to no avail, and removing the abs fuses (1 & 2) puts car in limp home mode. Which should be removed for a proper dyno run ?

    Cheers.

    Try fuse 16

    I think at the last rooling road day I went to simply holding down the sport button disabled it enough?

    For a certain answer pm Gman

    Thanks autosparks, tried it but no luck. Kept the IDS+ light on on the dash, (the tc light stayed off), and esp/tc were definitely still active .

    My last run on the dyno was with the sport button disable, but car still performed weirdly - according to another thread either it's tc cutting affecting the results despite being off, or my bcs's need replacing.

    Will pm gman .

    Of course . Just phoned regal, Chris (and Karen) were brilliant - gave some tips for the next dyno run (believe it more likely that intake got too high, insufficient cooling on the dyno, engine was retarding/cutting boost/overfuelling to protect itself) - don't believe it to be traction control issue as holding down the button is normally sufficient.

    In case anyone needs to in the future though, the way they do disable tc when believed to be an issue is to pull (whilst the engine is running!) the "2 purple and 1 blue" fuses, which I believe are the 2 abs fuses and an interior fan fuse (not sure I have that right) - and then clear the error codes via tech 2. May kill your power steering as well though.

    That definatly wasn;t the way it was done at the last rolling road day I went to, only 1 fuse was pulled under the bonnet

    If it's a Mk4 it's fuse 23 apparently. Didn't work on mine though.
