    Default Fortuner traction control

    Some info please---Did some dune driving and while going up a dune the fortuner lost power and the TC switched off--Is it speed dependent or do I need to go into low range to keep it engaged--Fortuner is the d4d 3l auto

    My experience is to always have TC off when doing sand/dune driving.

    Don't know if the fortuner has stability control but that is usually the bigger momentum killer in sand. Low-range should switch off all stability aids off while possibly keeping TC in tact.

    TC is useful is some sand situations but no TC, low range 2nd and centre diff locked is a good recipe.

    TC off in dunes, ABS as well if you can.

    Long press the TC off button. Had the same issue, but to completely disable the stability and traction control you need to press the button for about 5 or 6 seconds. Then you should see two lights on the dash. I think it TC and ESP/ABS
