Traction control on the rear only, as far as I remember (P38, not Vogue).
It's linked to the ABS system, detects if a wheel loses traction and applies
the brake to that wheel, diverting torque to the wheel with the grip. It
works pretty well, though obviously not as well as a full 4-wheel system.

You do nothing. There is no "driver input". Works well.

There is no CDL as such - there is a viscous coupling between front and rear
shafts which automatically locks up if it detects more than a small amount
of difference in rotational speeds. Works brilliantly, and again totally
