hi everyone,  i have a 59 plate +2 1.6 petrol qashqai which are 2 wheel, front wheel drive.

At the moment it has a blanking plate where the traction control switch should be, but i've checked behind it and it does have a connecting block behind the panel. Is it easy as getting a switch to switch traction on and off, or will i be wasting my money as a lot more work needs to be done before it will work?

i live at the bottom of a cul de sac and struggle even if there is a bit of snow and have been told switching the traction off would be better. I am going to get some decent tyres for winter to help.

Thanks in advance for your helpWink

Traction.... do you mean anti-lock braking system (ABS) or Electronic stability control (ESC) ??

hi not the abs but i think there's different names for the same thing like ESC  ERS or ESP.
My button is missing and has a blanking plate. This picture i have got from the internet.  Thanks

The 2009 Qashqai definitely did have ESC, so there ought to be the button for switching ESC off.... And in the circumstances you describe it is indeed better to switch it off.

thanks for that. it has got ESC that i can see is coming on automatically but no separate button to switch it on or off. So i'm hoping to buy a switch for it but just wanted to make sure it will do something before i buy it.
