Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF mode

This mode allows only the ABS control.

This mode should be used in an emergency situation such as getting out of snow or mud.

When the switch is pressed for more than approximately 3 seconds during engine operation, the indicator light on the combination meter illuminates in yellow. When the switch is pressed again to reactivate the Vehicle Dynamics Control system, the indicator light turns off.

NOTE
The Vehicle Dynamics Control system will be activated automatically when the engine is started.

If the switch is held down for 10 seconds or longer, the indicator light turns off, the Vehicle Dynamics Control system is activated, and the system ignores any further pressing of the switch. To make the switch usable again, turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and restart the engine.

When the Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF mode is selected, the vehicles running performance is comparable with that of a vehicle that does not have a Vehicle Dynamics Control system.

Do not deactivate the Vehicle Dynamics Control system except when absolutely necessary.

Even when the Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF mode is selected, components of the brake control system may still activate. When the brake control system is activated, the Vehicle Dynamics Control operation indicator light illuminates.
