thank you for reply
i have had car now for 2 years and never used this switch.
some one has told me that i should always drive with the asc in on position as it is safer to drive .
i am not sure about this and will only use as you have suggested in the snow or ice .

i have been driving the car for 2 years now with the yellow light in off position does this mean i have been driving the car with traction control function working ???
normally when a light shows up on a switch or on the dash board it is because it is in the on position but you are telling me it is the reverse in this case ?
so that the car should be driven as standard with traction contol working otherwise you will get a permanant light in your face on the dash

the car defaults to asc on every time you start it ;)
you physically have to turn the traction off when you wanna have fun round asda car parks :D
IKEA ones have less things you can hit ;);)

If you have been driving the car with the ASC light illuminated on the dash for 2 years then the ABS hasn't been working as well probably
