driving up snowy hill

The parking lot I use is on a slope and I was wondering if it's better to turn the traction control of, just the dtc, or leave it all on while trying to get up.... thanks ahead of time

Run DTC on...there are times when you do need wheel slippage and if you see you DTC flashing A LOT and you're not going anywhere, turn it off. I usually have mine on unless I plan on messing around. In that case...off it goes! COMPLETELY!

if you do a search there have been times when a guy stuck in snow would turn on dtc and the car would spin and go into safe mode because it cant get any grip, if i were you and like noel said just keep dtc on
