DYNAMISCHE STABILITÄTSKONTROLLE (DSC)

WARNING

The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system does not compensate for driver error or misjudgement. The vehicle should be driven with due care and attention at all times. Always drive in a manner that is safe for the vehicle, its occupants, and other road users. Failure to do so can potentially result in a loss of control of the vehicle, which may potentially result in serious injury or death.

WARNING

In extremely low temperatures the vehicle may initially have reduced stability and braking performance. In these conditions, drive with extra caution. Failure to do so can potentially result in personal injury or vehicle damage.

The DSC system helps to maintain the vehicle's stability in critical driving situations, e.g., during unstable driving behaviour such as understeer and oversteer. If required, the DSC system manipulates the engine's power output and applies the brakes at individual wheels. Brake noise may be generated during DSC operation. The DSC system also activates if wheel spin is detected, to help improve the vehicle's progress during acceleration. When the DSC system is active the amber DSC warning lamp flashes. See DYNAMISCHE STABILITÄTSKONTROLLE (DSC) (ORANGE).

The DSC system automatically enables when the vehicle's ignition is switched on.

Make sure that the correct driving mode is selected for the current terrain and driving conditions, or the required driving style. Using an incorrectly selected driving mode may adversely affect the correct operation of the DSC system. See BETRIEB DER FAHRBETRIEBSARTEN.
