Light on is deactivated. Light off is activated. It activates by default when you turn the car on (no light).

in normal driving conditions the light will be off, if you loose tractiont he sign will flash...press it once, the light will light up, itll deactivate DSC. OR hold it down for 5 seconds to deactive ALL systems (dsc, corner brake control, dynamic brake control)

To completely de-activate the electronic traction control systems in the new BMW's, you have to hold the button down for 5 seconds. Pushing it once just changes the threshold...the systems will still interfere. Holding it down for 5 seconds will completely disable it.
