Switching off AdvanceTrac

Switching off AdvanceTrac  - Advancetrac stability enhancement system - Driving - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

If the vehicle is stuck in snow, mud or sand, and seems to lose engine power, switching off certain features of the AdvanceTrac system may be beneficial because the wheels are allowed to spin. This will restore full engine power and will enhance momentum through the obstacle.

To turn off the traction control system, press the stability control off switch. The off switch could look like either of the two graphics shown. Full features of the AdvanceTrac system can be restored by pressing the switch again or by turning off and restarting the engine.

When the traction control system is off, the stability control off light will illuminate steadily. Pressing the stability control switch again will turn off the stability control off light.

In R (Reverse), ABS and the engine and brake traction control features will continue to function; however, ESC is disabled.
