2013 ST Traction Control

Hi Guy's,

I'm new to this forum and I'm sure this has come up but I can't find it.

I have a 2013 Focus ST and am unable to turn off traction control. Am I missing something here?

I go to Settings>Driver Assist and the only option here is "Hill Start Assist". There is no option to turn off Traction Control.

Any help or feedback is appreciated.

Jeff

There should be a physical button on the dashboard instead of it being in the message center on the ST. Press it once to reduce it to track mode and hold it for longer and it would turn it off completely.

yeah, the ST has a button. The other trim levels you have to go into the info screen.
