I think It's only the 4x4 that you can or need to turn it off

As per PM, no you can't switch it off on the 4x2, no point having it really if you turn it off, it makes no difference in day to day driving as it only comes into play if you lose traction.

The ESP can be switched off on the 4x4, not the ASR.
ion' - just to say that the manual (page 2.17) says switching ESP off also switches ASR off! ;) You're then left with off-road ABS mode to stop any spinning wheels.

In passing: I'm still pondering the bit on page 2.13 (of the UK manual) where it says that turning ESP (& ASR) off and having ABS off-road mode working is ".... particularly useful when crossing a bridge."

What bridge was the author thinking of at the time he/she wrote this?? I'd like to see that bridge! :D

there has been a thread about this before. i think i started it when i got my 4x2.

you only know you have it due to the two lights on your speedo when you start up.

you can't turn it off, as its part of the ABS system on the 4x2.

i've had mine kick in only twice pulling out in the wet and off a gravel drive, under hard accelleration.

you notice it a bit as it lowers the power output and breaking, but handeling it works nice. keeps the tracking where it should be.

I've got 4x4 and I can't find a button to turn any of it off (not that I want to!)

Duster Laureate 4x4, chrome exhaust, dog guard, bootliner, chrome bumper protector, tow bar, edge speakers. So far so good.

The button to turn it off is just below the radio near the ashtray

It looks as though I have it fitted as the two lights appear on startup in my speedometer.
I didn't ask for it so it would appear to have become standard.
Any idea how I can check if it is really fitted.
Mine is registered new April 14 Laureate 4x2
