embarrasing newbie question

On the traction control switch, when the button is pushed and the light is on does it mean that the traction control is engaged or disengaged? Thanks--also, I bought my Cobra in August, and have yet to receive my certificate of authenticity from SVT. Is this unusual? Thanks again.

traction control is ON untill you turn it off. I think the light is ON when tc is on. (trying to remember with out going outside here...)

as far as the cert., did you buy it new from the dealer? either way, I would call 1 800 ford svt and request it!

When you push it the T/C button and the light comes on then the T/C is off. I'm not sure if you automatically get the certificate from SVT when you buy a car brand new or not. I just bought a new '04 and haven't seen my cerificate yet, but it's only been about 2-3 weeks. But if I was you I would call SVT, August seems like along time.

Hope this helps

I hope so, I can't waite to get it framed with a good matting, and put it in our "little" office here at the house, the office is also my car room. I put all my car stuff in there. Stuff for shows, magazines, trophies, die-cast models, R.C. cars, etc....

The TC is off when the light is on. Think of it as a performance button, when you want the raw performance press the button and the light turns on.

I called up SVT and asked when the certificates will be sent, they said they will begin mailing them out in Late December. I have not received mine yet either. In fact, I never got the one for the 01 even after calling for it. I will have to see if things are different for the 04.

Thanks everyone. I bought my Cobra in August, and still haven't received my certificate. I will call SVT Monday, and post any pertinent information.

Thanks for the information. It is kind of odd because a few months ago they said that the would mail the cerificates out. I tried to call SVT today, but kept getting a recording. Blck04cobra1--I'm not sure what a predator is--but that's okay. I'm probably the only person here who is planning on keeping his Cobra stock.

the Predator is a tuning device that allows you to turn off traction control completely and tune your car to run a little better, so you dont have to push the button everytime you get in the car...I never drove with mine on, so I disabled it...also took care of that pesky seat belt alarm with a pair of scissors
