    Been waiting for some slippery conditions to test out the Trac, VSC, ABS Auto LSD. I took a turn fast to try to force a slide (m in 2wd) , and the VSC and Auto LSD lights came on. No beeping at all. The VSC light light went out right away, but the Auto LSD light stayed on until I tapped the VSC Off button. Is this normal, Auto LSD light staying on and no beeping?

    No, that's not normal. When VSC kicks in, it should sound multiple short beeps. Only time Auto LSD should come on is if you activate it by pressing the VSC button. Auto LSD does nothing in a skid, and the manual says it turns off automatically above certain speed. Some TW member said it was 9mph.

    Refer to owner manual for lights staying on. I believe it said to take it to the dealer.

    Doesn't sound normal. There should be no manual intervention of having to push the VSC button to turn the light off. The VSC light should flicker on while it's working and then shut off right after. Nothing should stay on unless you press the VSC button first which I believe turns on the auto-lsd (haven't done it since last winter.)
