Hi, there is no switch, but if you pull the ABS fuse it will stop working. You will still have regular brakes--just no ABS.

What is asr button

Anti Slip Regulator (ASR button) stops power to the wheels when they spin (on slippery surfaces ),the ASR is designed to be turned off only when you require the wheels to spin at low speed,EG: when you are on snow or ice,as the ASR will stop the power to the wheels if they start spinning,you would never get anywhere. over 20 M P H is not active and serves no function.......hope this helps......cheers.

This button turns the All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) function on and off. When the "TRACTION" light is on, the AWD function is on -- AWD should be on in snow / ice.

Esp off does touran grip better in snow. My touran poor on hills

Electronic Stability Control,works opposite to abs,in that,it stops the wheels from spinning on loose ground/snow by applying the brake to the wheel that is spinning.TURN IT WANT the wheel to grip not brake.and as far as being poor on hills, the toureg (amongst loads of other makes of 4x4s),is NOT designed for snow/off road,the four wheel drive just ENHANCES grip/handling on tarmac.(try a Subaru on a track/off road rally).

What is the function of ECT in Toyota hi ace 2L turbo diesel?

E electronically C controlled T transmision
  • Sometimes it has two sometimes three settings....
  • Power which holds the gears longer before change up....
  • Economy....gears change normally....
  • Snow....traction control...This last mode uses the ABS
  • A anti lock B brake S system
  • The ABS system automatically monitors the rotational speed of each wheel, and when brakes are applied, releases any brake about to lock up, independent of the others.
  • This is done because when wheels lock and skid, traction and control is lost....
  • Traction control brakes any wheel which begins to lose traction under power, spinning too fast and thereby also loosing traction if it was not controlled...
Hope this answers your question
It can be a slippery subject but we can slide across it....In a controlled way naturally

What is the T/C button on the dash?

Traction control controls spin in wheels on slippery roads. if you are stuck in snow or ice or on slippery road surface,try switching the traction control system off. this may allow excess wheel spin to dig the vehicle out.

Abs esp

ABS (GERMAN SYSTEM DESIGNED BY BOSCH)anti blocking system,stops wheels from locking up when braking hard(in europe you switch it off in snow....switch fitted)
ESP(as above)electronic stability program,uses the abs system to stop the wheels from spinning for max grip.
to test abs,stand on brakes hard,if wheels lock, it aint working .dashlight on.
esp,park with 2 wheels on grass and 2 on tarmac, floor spin.

I have a 06 dodge ram 3500 with Cummings diesel.

you have what is known as an open diff. or worn out clutch packs in a limited slip. most makers put in a open diff because its cheaper and handles better. if you did not pay for it on your invoice your stuck with stock unless you put it in your self.

4 wheel drive issues, appears to work in 4low but not 4 high

yes it is the switch. the switches are bad about going out in chevrolets which I am very familiar with. generally speaking if it goes into 4wd period it eliminates the actuator, and it also means t-case is functioning, it is just the selector switch.

that is what it is desgined to do - reduce acceleration and apply the brakes intermittently when the wheels spin. You have a switch you cn push to disable it. You need to disable each time you start car. See owner manual.

06-10: Traction Control 1996 Contour, Mystique Workshop Manual
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION Traction Control System The optional traction control system is designed to control wheel spin when accelerating on slippery or loose surfaces. Traction control system is available only with anti-lock brakes. The traction control system includes the following components:
  • Hydraulic control unit.
  • Throttle control actuator (9N825).
  • Traction control switch.
  • Traction control warning indicator.
  • Front brake anti-lock sensor (2C204).
  • Rear brake anti-lock sensor (2C190).
The traction control system operates as follows:
  • System functions by transferring torque from the spinning wheel to the wheel with the most traction.
  • This is achieved by applying the brake at the spinning wheel through the hydraulic control unit or reducing the throttle opening.
  • Traction control braking and throttle control occur at vehicle speeds up to 50 km/h (30 mph).
  • At vehicle speeds above 50 km/h (30 mph), only throttle limiting control is used.
  • If speed control is operating when traction control system engages the traction control system will disengage speed control through the use of a speed control relay. This action is the same as applying the brake pedal with speed control engaged.

Traction Control Switch The traction control switch is located on the instrument panel, left of the steering column.
