Ford Escape: Switching off traction control
If the vehicle is stuck in snow, mud or sand, and seems to lose engine power, switching off the traction control features of the AdvanceTrac with RSC system may be beneficial because the wheels are allowed to spin. This will restore full engine power and will enhance momentum through the obstacle. To switch off the traction control, press the traction control off button. Full features of the stability control system can be restored by pressing the traction control off button again, or by turning off and restarting the engine.
If you switch off the traction control, the stability control “OFF” light will illuminate steadily. Pressing the stability control off button again will turn off the stability control “OFF” light.
In R (Reverse), ABS and the engine and brake traction control features will continue to function; however, ESC and RSC are disabled.
1 When the AdvanceTrac button is pressed momentarily, traction control is disabled.
2 When the AdvanceTrac button is pressed and held for more than five seconds, trailer sway control is disabled.
