    3 mode ESC control

    My 2012 Abarth does not have this ESC switch - can it be retrofitted?

    It must have a switch. Do you have heated seats?

    It is just one button labelled ESC. You push it once to partially disable it. You hold it for around 10 seconds to completely disable it.

    If you have heated seats, the button is on the left side of the car below the steering column. If you don't have heated seats, the button is in the center console by the temp controls.

    as said above if you have heated seats it will be in the center console below and to the right of the sort button and if you have heated seats it will be above the hood release on the left below the steering wheel

    Heated seats were not an option on the 2012, so the button will be in the center by the fog light button.

    I wonder if you installed an Abarth esc switch if the ability lies in the computer already but the default sport switch won't get ya there?
