My Pajero does not have traction control (1989).
My Touareg has (amongst other)
- Traction Control (EDL) and
- Stability Control (ESP)
This is what VW says about the two:
ESP automatically provides the driver with an enhanced ability to
maintain control of the vehicle, but it should be deactivated when
driving on loose sand or gravel. ESP uses ASR which reduces engine
power when wheel slip is detected. This makes the vehicle slow down
and causes more difficulty getting out of the loose sand or gravel.
Electronic Differential Lock (EDL)
The Touareg has four-wheel EDL. Using four-wheel EDL, a freespinning
wheel is slowed by brake application, transferring torque to a
wheel with traction.
The two should not be confused. The one cuts power to the engine, the other brakes a spinning wheel.
I do now know how the Mitsu systems works, but I would imagine that they are similar to the VW ones.
