It's winter here in Finland and I'd like to set ESP Off. Is it possible to do it without removing fuse? I know the button that disables "tires spinning control" (is it) but not the ESP. Removing the ESP fuse disables ESP and ABS, and if you put the fuse back, car's computer still thinks there is no fuse, so it I have to remove battery and then it's normal. (then clocks and radio goes to zero)

VDC system is supplied through THREE fuses; you'd need to pull all three to reboot it, I'd guess.

So that means you could disable the whole system (but have a warning light on the dash) using a switch and three relays...

I'm guessing you're pulling fuse 33 (FB44)? Careful, that also feeds the electric power steering ECU.
You also need to look, then, at 1&2 (MBF1 and SBF1) in the engine bay fusepanel; they're the permanent supplies to the VDC controller.
