    ASR/TCS was an option - RPO Code NW9 on the drivers side door. Glad mine didn't come with it.

    Alright, this has had me thinking for awhile.

    My car does NOT have the TC button to turn off/on. But I bottomed out and fucked some shit up. Now my TCS light comes on and off for no reason. So do I have TCS or not?
    Low Trac light??!! Need help please!

    You don't. You probably need to check each sides of your axle for the wheel sensors. They might have came disconnected.

    You only have a traction control if you have a switch.

    Thats what I thought... but a car without TC will still have a LOW TRAC light correct?

    Yes.

    Cars with traction control will actually feel like the gas pedal is being pushed back up when you break the wheels loose while nailing the throttle.
