Question about 1997 Toyota RAV4
The ETC button does NOT provide "extra horsepower" or "extra torque". Not at all. What it REALLY does is "stretch-out" the shift points between the 1-2 and the 2-3 upshifts. In other words, if the trans shifts at approx 15-18 mph without the ETC on, it will shift at approx 18-22 mph with the ETC on. This is provided to make the shift points "longer" if you are carrying a heavier load than normal. Thusly making it easier for the trans to get the vehilce up to speed. There is a lot of "confusion" about the ETC, but the above text is 100% true.
