Hi guys, im a newbie to turbos and this is only my second falcon.

The bloke I bought it off Unplugged the traction switch from the dash panel end and claimed to have put it back fine but no light on startup and it seems to not work ive popped it out n checked it its not got bent pins etc and connects, checked all fuses inside the car but cant seem to find the tc one itself, apparently it runs through ABS one and that 60 amp one is fine in engine bay, is there a relay it runs through??? Could this be causing my overboost sensation too as that happens at around 3200 rpm?? Ive read theres torque reduction settings that kick in for overboost etc, And traction problems seem to feel similar ive read also. I even tried disconnecting battery also for an hour and nothing. Any ideas???? The car is mint also not had a hard life etc

Much appreciated guys
Scotty

Keep in mind also that Traction control will always default to be "on" everytime the car is started. When the light is illuminated in the cluster it means the traction control is "off" and has been over ridden by pressing the button for a few secs.
