How to turn traction control off?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I own a 2013 fiesta ecoboost titanium x and was wondering how to turn the traction off? I looked in the manual which says to go through the settings but I couldn't find an option to turn it on or off. 

If anyone has any ideas please share.

Regards,

Why would you want to turn it off, its a safety feature.

I found traction control to be a terrible nuisance when trying to move slowly uphill in a traffic queue on an icy slope. The tiniest bit of slippage and power was cut off.

The subject was discussed on this forum years ago. So far as I can remember I think some Fiestas have a switch, some can have a switch added, some people advised pulling out a fuse ....there didn't seem to be a single solution to fit every Fiesta.

It's a pain the backside for a hill near me which has had them little stones put all over the top of it, it's a steep hill so trying to carefully accelerate with traction control on is annoying constant power cutting (not exactly power cutting but feels awful) then coming back made it dangerous so I have it off when driving around that area. But for pretty much everywhere else I have it on

In the owners manual of my previous car ( a Citroen C4) it suggested turning off the traction control in icy conditions.

Yes i put a switch in my pre-facelift as it had me on a black icy road on a corner,just missed gutter as it cut my power.

Off it goes in icy roads as i want control myself not a robot.
