DESCENT CONTROL MODE

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before using All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC). See ALL TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL (ATPC) SAFETY.

Descent control mode attempts to maintain a constant vehicle speed when descending a slope.

To enter descent control mode:

  1. Carefully position the vehicle at the top of a slope.

  2. With the vehicle stationary, press and hold the brake pedal.

  3. Enable ATPC. See ENABLING ALL TERRAIN PROGRESS CONTROL (ATPC).

  4. Select an appropriate terrain response program. See TERRAIN RESPONSE OPERATION.

  5. Select Drive (D).

  6. Release the brake pedal.

ATPC takes control of the vehicle’s speed during the descent. The selected terrain response program determines the vehicle’s speed during the descent. The vehicle's speed can be reduced by moving the SET rocker switch on the right side steering wheel controls downward.

ATPC suspends descent control mode operation if the accelerator pedal is pressed. Descent control mode resumes once the accelerator pedal is no longer being used.
