Mazda CX-3. TCS OFF Switch

Press the switch again to turn the TCS back on. The TCS OFF indicator light will turn off.

NOTE

  • When TCS is on and you attempt to free the vehicle when it is stuck, or drive it out of freshly fallen snow, the TCS (part of the DSC system) will activate. Depressing the accelerator will not increase engine power and freeing the vehicle may be difficult. When this happens, turn off the TCS.
  • If the TCS is off when the engine is turned off, it automatically activates when the ignition is switched ON.
  • Leaving the TCS on will provide the best traction.
  • If the TCS OFF switch is pressed and held for 10 seconds or more, the TCS OFF switch malfunction detection function operates and the TCS system activates automatically. The TCS OFF indicator light turns off while the TCS system is operative.
