when i punch it in first to take off at a light, the ASR light in the gauge blinks. now does that mean that the car suggests that you use it or does it mean it's activating it automatically. i'd really hate to be at the track and have some power loss because of the ASR. thanks for any info.

When it is blinking, the ASR is active and "kicking in". At the track, or in any other situation when you would prefer to be without ASR, you can turn it off by pressing the large button labelled ASR that's on the dashboard. This will disable ASR but the same light that was blinking before will now be on until you press this button again to enable ASR or shut off your car.

Re: blinking ASR light? (str8uppimp)

the ASR isnt actually on before i take off at the light. it starts to blink in the dash when i take off. and to reply to one of the ones up top, not to be smart or anything, but wouldnt it be hard to hit that ASR button while on the track?

When the light is on, the system is off. The light is there to warn you that you have deactivated a safety system. When the light blinks, that means the ASR is applying brake power to a slipping wheel to prevent it from slipping. Basically, ASR is there to kill wheelspin.

Re: blinking ASR light? (clarkma5)

if this is the case, what can i do to stop the ASR from coming on, like if i'm at the track, if it does this automatically? i wouldnt want any power loss while i'm at the track.

Wait, you *still* haven't read your owner's manual? Every question you have asked is clearly and completely explained there.
Honestly, dude, ASR isn't that difficult to understand.

Simple:
1. ASR On: light off.
2. ASR Activated: light blinking.
3. ASR Off: light on
At the track, use option 3 http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
edit: spelling

SERIOUSLY !!!
Everyone on these boards are so pre-occupied about freakin loving everyone else and making everyone feel like a special someone, that sometimes you overlook idioitic posts.
I for one read my manual 5 times over, considering I just bought a NINETEEN THOUSAND DOLLAR PEICE OF MACHINERY. And for chrissake, it's not like this is some cryptic function, ASR is something everyone should know by now being that it's a LIGHT THAT BLINKS IN YOUR FACE WITH A BIG BUTTON ON THE DASHBOARD.

When you go to the track, before you start racing press the ASR button on the dash....the ASR light will light up and stay lit. This mean ASR is disabled. To enable ASR just press the button again and th light will turn off.
