Attached File  small_v70r.JPG   61.98K   19 downloadsI am a new owner of a V70R with less than 1k on the dash...as of now.

Anyways, I want to be able to turn off all the traction control. My dealer demoed this to me on a S60R by pressing the DCTS button in series a few times. The problem is that I only saw it once and am awaiting a reponse e-mail on how to do this.

Can anyone help? B)

Congrats on your purchase and welcome to the board!

Push the button 5 times total, in a push and hold slightly to turn off, then tap briefly to turn back on manner:

Push - DSTC Function reduced
Tap - DSTC On
Push - DSTC Function reduced
Tap - DSTC On
Push - DSTC Off

i thought they actually did a good job in the rain.
didn't like them in the dry and look out if you see the white stuff.

Just be aware, even with the DSTC Off it is not completely disabled and traction control is still present.

My '05 gives a slightly different message at the end . . . instead of "DSTC off" it says "anti-skid off" . . . implying that (as Doug stated) the traction control portion of the system is indeed still active.

Is it true that the traction control allows hand brake turns?
If so does this mean that DTSC is fully turned off - only momentarily?

The hand brake is strictly mechanical and therefore is not controlled or influenced by the DSTC. If you lock up the rear wheels with the handbrake there is not much the electronics can do about it.

True. You are looking for 32mph in the wet, 37 in the dry. Not that I would know... -mk
