ASR OFF but­ton

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Help! -

I have a 2010 Skoda Oc­tavia 1.2 that has a but­ton marked ‘ASR OFF’ which is not cov­ered by the hand­book. What is its func­tion? Wil­liam Mclean

ASR stands for Anti Slip Reg­u­la­tion and is bet­ter known by the more com­mon name of trac­tion con­trol. As with all mod­ern ve­hi­cles, the power sup­plied to the road wheels is elec­tron­i­cally reg­u­lated and in­te­grated with the ABS (Anti-lock Brake Sys­tem). Dur­ing all nor­mal driv­ing con­di­tions, the elec­tronic sys­tems will per­form well and the ‘ASR OFF' but­ton should be left alone, al­though in ex­cep­tional cir­cum­stances some driv­ers will wish to use the but­ton to over­ride the elec­tronic func­tion.
