Enables/disables traction control. When pushed you'll see the indicator come on in the instrument display. THis means ASR is DISABLED. When enabled you will see this same indicator flash as the car regains traction.

Nope.. You are problably thinking EDL ( Electronic differential lock)
-Read your manual



"ASR" stands for Anti- Slip regulation , the only function of it is prevent the front wheel from spinnig on FWD vehicles when accelerating .

You want the ASR off ( light on) if you are :

Driving on Snow or loosen surface
driving with snow chains
when rocking back and forth to free the vehicle when stuck
when starting off on an uphill where grip is reduced on one side( example one wheel on snow the other on dry pavement )

ASR is traction control of sorts. Gurft is right when pushed, then ASR is DISABLED. Under normal circumstances it should be kept on thus no ASR light on the gauges. When it is kicking on, then the ASR light flashes in the gauges.
