So people are saying two different things....
One is saying it Turns the TC off when in 4low
Another is saying it turn off ESP and Leaves on TC... Which one is it???
You do know ESP and Traction Control are seperate things right? ESP isn't traction control....
Can anyone clarify.....?
Ok...I'm sure you guys have it all figured out by now because you haven't posted since yesterday but I had to clarify some things.
ESP and Traction Control are not 2 separate things. Traction Control is a part of the ESP. There are many different features that make up the ESP as a whole and Traction Control is one of them so they are not different things. If you don't believe me, it's all in the owners manual. Well at least it's in mine...lol. Here's a quick quote describing partial off for the ESP.
This mode is entered by momentarily depressing the "ESP Control Switch". When in "Partial Off" mode, the TCS portion of ESP, except for the "limited slip" feature described in the TCS section, has been disabled and the "ESP/TCS Indicator Light" will be illuminated. All other stability features of ESP function normally. This mode is intended to be used if the vehicle is in deep snow, sand, or gravel conditions and more wheel spin than ESP would normally allow is required to gain traction. To turn ESP on again, momentarily depress the "ESP Control Switch". This will restore the normal "ESP On" mode of operation.
It clearly states that the TCS is a part of the ESP. Now, for the limited slip portion I referred to earlier. The TCS portion of ESP is made up of 2 main features. One is controlling engine power and the other monitors the amount of wheel spin and applies the brakes to the slipping wheel to transfer power. The two terms are not exactly interchangeable, but the limited slip feature is a part of the TCS. Here's where I made the mistake. I had thought that the ESP would automatically go to the "Full Off" mode when switched into 4 Low, but it states in the owners manual that "Partial Off" is the normal operating mode for ESP.
Not trying to start any arguments because we could go on forever, but I just had to clarify. Happy jeepin'!!
