Traction Control settings

Help please.. I canít find any manual reference for what the TC settings means, and should be on an F3.. as the roads are so slippery in the UK at the moment, getting this right is a major issue for me... I can see how to change them, but is 1 good or bad ?

Isn't the highest number the greatest intervention???

Try this...set it on 8 (or whatever is highest) and go for a short ride. Whack the throttle open whilst straight up and down at lower speed on a damp road and note the reaction. Then do the same thing with TC set at 1. Note the difference.

Adjust to a setting that gives you the level of intervention you want.

I used to be I just dream about it.

yep 0 is off 8 is highest intervention. Its in the maintenance manual and chassis manual. Might not be clear in the user guide though?

TC can definitely help on wet-slime roads: we have same here on Gulf Coast, TX USA. Also just slow down and smooth throttle and braking.
