  • Traction Control?

    Hi All
    Just wondering if this has happened to anyone. In RWD I span my rear wheels trying to get across a busy intersection (in loose gravel), the 2 green LED,s started blinking and I lost all forward drive with my accelerator pedal half way to the floor the car wouldnt go, it seemed like ages but it must have been 3 or 4 seconds easily.
    It was a bit unnerving as I thought I was going to get cleaned up for sure,
    Anyone got any ideas on what caused this

    Thanks Glenn

    Glad you asked this question as exactly the same thing happened to me about 2 days ago, although I could not say that the green lights were flashing, with a car bearing down on us rapidly I took foot off accelerator and replanted it and off we went. Hope someone else can tell you what is happening .

      Sounds to me like a classic intervention of traction control - detects wheel spin & cuts power to the engine until you lift off the throttle.

        I also discovered (early in my ownership, luckily) that the system will not allow you to hold the car with the brake pedal and rev the engine - ready for a power take-off into traffic. It kills the fuel supply until you lift your foot.

        I have an auto NP Diesel.

          It causes some grief for professional drivers too by the looks of this article
