Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC) SAFETY.

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) helps maintain the vehicle's stability in critical driving situations, e.g., during unstable driving conditions such as understeer and oversteer. If required, DSC controls the engine's power output and applies the brakes at individual wheels.


Noise from the braking system may be heard during DSC operation.

DSC may also activate if wheel spin is detected, to help improve the vehicle's acceleration performance.

DSC automatically enables when the vehicle's ignition is switched on. To switch DSC off, press and briefly hold the DSC OFF button. See SWITCHING DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC) OFF.

DCS works in conjunction with the terrain response system. When operational, the terrain response system automatically adjusts DSC to suit the current driving program selection. See TERRAIN RESPONSE OPERATION.

The amber DSC lamp flashes in the instrument panel when DSC is active. See DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC) (AMBER).

The amber DSC lamp illuminates permanently if the system develops a fault. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer if the fault persists.
