BA XR Traction Control

When ever I want to turn off the traction control(which is every now and then)I find that the button is located in a place that is not easy to see and thus i have to take my eyes off the road.... any one else think that it should be in a better position..?

Re: BA XR Traction Control

maybe it's there to discourage you from turning it off?

Re: BA XR Traction Control

Any of those 4 buttons behind the steering wheel are stupidly placed. That and the interior light (can you fix this?) not coming on when you open a door seem to be the only design faults I can pick with the interior.

Mate easy fix hold down the interior light switch till it flashes and it will be fixed.
It has a 2 stage function.
The one it is on now is for when you do not want anybody to see you in the car with the door open or know when you are getting in or out.

Hope this helps
Cheers Chris

The ignition switch is in a pain of a spot too, I have to lean over to the right to see around the bloody steering wheel so I can see to get the key in!

AND if I've been using the sunvisor and it's down and I get out and back in, it smacks you right on the forehead, if a bloke would remember to put it up no prob I guess, of course I never remember.
