In Reply to: Can ASC cut in WITHOUT the dash light going on? posted by Greg in Sydney (now in Wellington, NZ) on March 30, 1999 at 03:36:25:
Fuel is cut to the engine. The initial attempt by ASC-T to control the car is through the application of the brakes. This does not light up the dash light, only the secondary more extreme measure of fuel cutting makes the light go on.
