2004 Mazda6 DSC/Traction Control

Hi all, I've been a member for a little bit but haven't posted yet!

I've got a 2004 Mazda6 (2.3l I4, FWD, Sports-AT) which I have had since January of last year. I was reading through the owners manual today and noticed that there is an option to toggle the DSC/Traction Control (I'll use DSC from now) by pressing the DSC button on the lower-right of the drivers side dash just above the smaller storage compartment. The only button that I can see there is a slider dial for adjusting the brightness of the instrument panel but there seems to be space for another 3 buttons.

So I was wondering if my 6 either does not have traction control or just does not offer the option for toggling it?

When I turn the ignition on, I can see an ABS and AT (Automatic transmission) light come on for a second or two and then disappear. I've seen the US models with a DSC icon, so maybe the owners manual is just generalised and includes features that are absent in some models?

Thanks in advance, Todd

Welcome aboard.

If you have it (not sure on 04s), there should be a button marked TCS OFF.

Thanks GerryB, I'm enjoying it so far!

I can't see anything labelled TCS OFF at all unfortunately.

Just an update. I've been checking out other 6's and it looks like it's not a feature of the 2004 model.
