The vehicle's stability and safety may be reduced by inappropriately disabling the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system. The result can be a vehicle crash, potentially leading to serious injury or death.


In the majority of driving situations, and particularly on-road, it is recommended that the DSC system is not disabled.

To switch the DSC system off, press and hold the DSC OFF button, located on the centre console, for more than 3 seconds.

An audible warning tone sounds. The instrument panel displays the DSC off message and also illuminates the DSC OFF warning lamp to confirm that DSC is disabled. See DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC) OFF (AMBER).

Switching the DSC system off reduces the level of traction and stability control intervention. Doing so may lead to an increase in wheel spin and a reduction in the vehicle’s stability.

Some driving conditions may require switching the DSC system off, in the event that a correctly selected driving mode cannot improve the vehicle’s progress. See DRIVING MODES OPERATION.

Examples of some driving conditions that may adversely affect the vehicle’s progress include:

  • Rocking the vehicle out of a hollow or deep rut.

  • Pulling away in deep snow or on a loose surface.

  • Driving through deep sand or mud.


Make sure to switch the DSC system back on when the need for switching DSC off has passed.
