Vehicle Dynamics Control warning light

The Vehicle Dynamics Control system

The Vehicle Dynamics Control system provides its ABS control through the electrical circuit of the ABS system. Accordingly, if the ABS is inoperative, the Vehicle Dynamics Control system becomes unable to provide ABS control. As a result, the Vehicle Dynamics Control system also becomes inoperative, causing the warning light to illuminate.

Though both the Vehicle Dynamics Control and ABS systems are inoperative in this case, the ordinary functions of the brake system are still available. You will be safe while driving with this condition, but drive carefully and have your vehicle checked at a SUBARU dealer as soon as possible.

NOTE
- If the electrical circuit of the Vehicle Dynamics Control system itself malfunctions, only this particular warning light illuminates. Under these circumstances, the ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) remains fully operational.

- The warning light illuminates when the electronic control system of the ABS/Vehicle Dynamics Control system malfunctions.

The Vehicle Dynamics Control system is probably inoperative under any of the following conditions. Have your vehicle checked at a SUBARU dealer immediately.

- The warning light does not illuminate when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position.

- The warning light illuminates while the vehicle is running.

NOTE
If the warning light behavior is as described in the following examples, the Vehicle Dynamics Control system may be considered to be operating normally.

- The warning light illuminates right after the engine is started but turns off immediately, remaining off.

- The warning light illuminates after the engine has started and turns off while the vehicle is subsequently being driven.

- The warning light illuminates during driving, but it turns off immediately and remains off.
