ALL SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL (ASPC)

WARNING

Do not attempt a steep descent if the All Surface Progress Control (ASPC) system is not enabled, or if the instrument panel displays warning messages. Doing so may potentially lead to an accident, resulting in vehicle damage or personal injury.

WARNING

The driver must maintain full control of the steering and brakes at all times. Failure to do so may potentially lead to an accident, resulting in vehicle damage or personal injury.

NOTES

The ASPC system cannot be enabled if the park assist feature is currently enabled.

NOTES

The vehicle's cruise control and speed limiter systems are disabled during operation of the ASPC system.

The ASPC button is located on the center console. Press and release the button to enable the ASPC system. The button's LED lamp illuminates and the instrument panel displays a message, prompting to set the speed for the vehicle. The instrument panel also illuminates the amber ASPC warning lamp to confirm selection. See ALL SURFACE PROGRESS CONTROL (ASPC) (AMBER).

NOTES

The driver can override ASPC operation, at any time, using the brake pedal or the accelerator pedal. In this event, the amber ASPC warning lamp flashes.

Determine the required mode of operation for the ASPC system. See DESCENT CONTROL MODE and FULL FUNCTION MODE.

The ASPC system can be enabled when the vehicle is stationary and when the vehicle is moving. When the vehicle is stationary, apply the brake pedal to maintain control of the vehicle.

The ASPC system's enabled status is retained for up to 6 hours after the vehicle's electrical system is switched off. After this time, it has to be reselected, if ASPC is still required when the vehicle's electrical system is switched on.

Press and release the ASPC button again to disable the system. The button's LED lamp and the ASPC warning lamp extinguish to confirm deselection.

ASPC operation is influenced by the current driving mode selection. For example, the rain ice snow driving mode requires gradual ASPC acceleration to help gain available wheel traction. The normal driving mode allows increased ASPC acceleration to help improve vehicle progress. See DRIVING MODES OPERATION.
