Yesterday it snowed and i decided to have some fun. I put the ACS on to make sure i even got where i wanted to go, but then forgot to turn it off. I was spinning donuts and stuff, will this cause the ACS to mulfunction or wear out. I was just wondering?

ah i missed that. no it shouldnt cause any problems with the acs it might wear parts quicker but the system should be fine unless you do it all the time. i dunno what are you experiencing or are you just curious? acs light on means the system is off, when blinking its actively working so your right truem3

ya its a silly concept. at first i though they should have had it the other way, so then it was like your foglight button , when they are on you have a light on, when the asc is on the light is on.
