When its on, the car is a little "peppier", with a little loss in gas mileage

Ect light won't go off in car


When it is on it helps you accelerate faster for sportier driving, but it seems to use a little more gas when I drove with it on all the time. I would shut it off if you do not want to use it.

Where do I find the ETC PWR switch on a 2008 Lexus IS250 AWD?


On North American IS250 it is to the right of the steering wheel below the ignition button. There should be two switches ECT and TRAC side by side

I have a 1996 L400. There is a switch ECT PWR. What is it for? What does it do? When should I use it?


Hi there;
The ECT PWR switch. ECT stands for Electronicaly controled transmission. This switch controls the shift pattern of the transmission. In the PWR possition it will delay the shifts somewhat to give your car more power.
You would use this if you are in a possition where you need to accerate quickly from a light or to pass someone & need more power.

I hope this helps
Farrout!

ECT PWR


when you switch on power, this feature puts in sport or improven performance shifts but increases fuel comsum.

ECT Switch


Hi, the switch simply tells the vehicle's computer to make the throttle a bit more sensitive and make the transmission shifts a bit crisper and changes the shift points slightly. It's for better performance.
