How do you know if you have T/C on your SVTF?

I was just wondering how I can find out if I have T/C on my car? Also if I do have T/C where is that button everyone talks about? I'm more than sure I do not have T/C but just asking to make sure. Any info would be great. Thanx

i believe TC only comes on the Euro SVT. It is located right by your e-brake.

^^ I agree Its by the ebrake next to the seat heater switch. You need the euro pkg with the cold weather options.

I have a non Euro SVTF, with Traction Control. If you have the winter package on your SVTF, chances are you will have TC. Also, yes its located by the ebrake, on the right side.

so tell me, is it easy to burnout in a NON- T/C SVTF, mine seems very eager to until T/C kicks in... not beating on it, but had to try once or twice

just switch the t/c off and you can burn it up hard core.

no you can't craig there has been many a discussion about this the t/c still stays on under speeds of 20mph or incase of an emergency (spinout) it kicks in

If you pull t/c fuse you can do all the smokey burnouts you want, and can also launch faster. Also I found found the best way to see if a focus has t/c is rev it up to 6500-7000 and dump clutch and see what happens.
