Press the switch again to turn the TCS back on. The TCS OFF indicator light will turn off.

NOTE

When TCS is on and you attempt to free the vehicle when it is stuck, or drive it out of freshly fallen snow, the TCS will activate. Depressing the accelerator will not increase engine power and freeing the vehicle may be difficult. When this happens, turn off the TCS.

If the TCS is off when the engine is turned off, it automatically activates when the ignition is switched ON.

Leaving the TCS on will provide the best traction.

If the TCS OFF switch is pressed and held for 10 seconds or more, the TCS OFF switch malfunction detection function operates and the TCS system activates automatically. The TCS OFF indicator light turns off while the TCS system is operative.

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) automatically controls braking and engine torque in conjunction with systems such as ABS and TCS to help control side slip when driving on slippery surfaces, or during sudden or evasive maneuvering, enhancing vehicle safety.


Refer to ABS (page 4-82) and TCS (page 4-83).


DSC operation is possible at speeds greater than 20 km/h (12 mph).

WARNING

WARNING

WARNING

A system malfunction or operation conditions are indicated by a WARNING. Refer to WARNING/Indicator Lights on page 4-22.


Do not rely on the Dynamic Stability Control as a substitute for safe driving:

The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) cannot compensate for unsafe and reckless driving, excessive speed, tailgating (following another vehicle too closely), and hydroplaning (reduced tire friction and road contact because of water on the road surface). You can still have an accident.
