Quick Esp Question?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Within the Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec (mk2.5) I noticed that you can select ESP manually by going through the menu.

Previously when driving my dads lexus 4x4 I went over a round about a bit too quick, and ESP kicked in and saved me from a little accident ;)

But a little confused about the Focus, if you have to manually select this on, whats the point? Shouldnt this kick in automatically?

Can anyone please advise why I can enable\disable this via menu and in what instances will I need to do so?

The ESP is active and has to be manual switched off and I found switching this off in the snow last year helped because when I left it in and I lost traction it killed all power to the wheels.

It stays in the off position if you manually turn it off, then when you next start the car, it reverts automatically back to the on position.
