Tesla Model 3 2017-2022 Owner's Manual: Traction Control

By default, the traction control system is on.

Under normal conditions, it should remain on to ensure maximum safety.

This yellow indicator flashes on

Warning: Traction control cannot prevent collisions caused by driving dangerously or turning too sharply at high speeds.

Under normal conditions, Slip Start should not be enabled. Enable it only in circumstances where you deliberately want the wheels to spin, such as:
