It means you are driving in my car. :lol:The symbol is the one underneath the ABS
this aint my actual dash but the symbol is the same one so, what does this mean ??
I don't know, I always left it off regardless of the weather. It is my opinion that the ASR is more of a handicap than an aid. It is definetly impossible to drive in the snow, with ASR on, the only time I can see it as a benefit is in the rain. Even then, I have my reservations about the system.Good to leave it on for 9 months of the year if you live in Canada
The ASR doesn't work by cutting fuel delivery. The ASR backs off on the throttle. This is done through the Drive By Wire system where the accelerator pedal is merely another sensor. The pedal "requests" torque and the DBW system has actual control of the throttle.the engine would be continually starving for fuel in icy/snowy conditions and will even stall at times if the gas pedal is not eased off in time.
you mean to tell me that if i hit the button and the lights turns on i'm turning the traction control off and not onYes, it flashes if you spin your tires with ASR on, meaning your traction control is kicking in. Or if you hit your ASR button (if you have one) it stays on meaning your traction control is turned off.
It stalls when you're stuck in a snow rut and are trying to rock the car out by changing gears from reverse to drive to reverse to drive with manual tranny. But with ASR off it doesn't stall. I've had this experience with 2 different 5spd Passats so I doubt they both had something wrong with them.ASR shouldn't stall the engine. If yours is stalling when the ASR kicks in, there's a problem somewhere.
You probably want it switched OFF for that particular situation. Check the owners manual to see if it recommends shutting it off when trying to rock the car out of a snow rut.It stalls when you're stuck in a snow rut and are trying to rock the car out by changing gears from reverse to drive to reverse to drive with manual tranny.
