( i work for ford so get all the rubbish training!! mind u have some fun on test tracks in loughbourgh!!)


I agree Ronnie--in normal circumstances, why would you want to turn it off?

Just curious...........where's the test tracks in Loughborough?

Is it near Prestwold or Wymeswold?

The ON/OFF button must only be on the Zetec S. Anyone got a good idea why?

So was the general consensus that the ESP could NOT be turned off in the Titanium?

Absolutely, 100%---you cannot turn off ESP on the Titanium.

you can defo turn it off and on, i dont know what model fiesta jeremy clarkson tested on top gear, but if you waych the video in one scene ,i think its inside the shoping centre, you can see the traction control off light is lit up on his dash, i reconised the symbol straight away as i used to have it on my st dash as i used to turn it off regulary

On a Titanium you definitely can't!

Trust me, I know..........I've got one!!!

To be fair though, it's the first car I've had where you can't turn it off!! :rolleyes:

Since there's no on/off switch how shall I check, other than by hurtling around a test track, that the ESP which I ordered as an extra for my long-awaited 5-door Titanium has actually been fitted?

I read in a review somewhere that the ESP is "over-intrusive". What does that mean in practice and would owners with experience agree?

Can turn it off in my Zetec S too, with the button and through the computer's menu (vehicle section).
