Re: 159 Traction Control Cutting in
I have had this problem a number of times. It seems to happen mostly on down hill runs - the orange warning light comes on and all power cuts - but only for an instant.
The local agent tried to put it down to wet leaves or me driving too hard, but you have to be pushing things very hard in the dry to start lighting the traction control up and this is happening when driving slowly round town.
I have just put new front tyres on and the tyre fitter reckons I was running pressures too low (they recommend 36 - 40 psi - sound reasonable?), so maybe with higher pressure the problem will go away.
