Default ASC light not working?

Hi Guys, First post on this site after getting my 318ti, have been reading the threads with interest.
my question is does anyone know why i cant swithc my asc off? the light comes on at the dash when the ignition is first turned on but then goes off. i am understand the asc is automatically on whenever the engine is on but i thought you could switch it off if desired (by the green switch) which should illuminate the dase light - this doesnt seem to be the case? does anyone have any suggestions?

thanking you in advance

You have to hold the button down for a a second or too. If you just tap it it doesn not switch off,this is the button to the left of the stering wheel by your nknee. When it is off the light will be illuminated on ur dash.

Get yourself on some sand or a wet road. Bring it up to 3500 and drop the clutch. If the light blinks, it's the switch.

If it doesn't, it's the light.

Of course, it could always be the wiring or a wheel sensor.


Cal-ti: shine a light onto the switch. It's a dark, dark translucent green.

wow, never noticed that, i'll have to check it out. i was thinking of a regular green and couldn't envision where we had a switch like that

he indicated that the light comes on when he first starts the car, so the bulb/light should be working. your test idea is a good one, that should indicate whether the ASC system is operating or not.
