Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Active trace control

The Integrated Dynamics-control Module is an electric control module that includes the following functions:

  • Active Trace Control
  • Active Engine Brake
  • Active Ride Control

This system senses driving based on the driver's steering and acceleration/braking patterns, and controls brake pressure at individual wheels to aid tracing at corners and help smooth vehicle response.

The Active Trace Control can be set to ON (enabled) or OFF (disabled) through the vehicle information display "Settings" page. For additional information, refer to "Vehicle information display" in the "Instruments and controls" section of this manual.

When the VDC OFF switch is used to turn off the VDC system, the Active Trace Control is also turned off.

If the Integrated Dynamics-control Module warning message appears in the vehicle information display, it may indicate that the Active Trace Control is not functioning properly. Have the system checked as soon as possible. It is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service.

WARNING

The Active Trace Control may not be effective depending on the driving condition.

Always drive carefully and attentively.

When the Active Trace Control is operating, you may feel a pulsation in the brake pedal and hear a noise. This is normal and indicates that the Active Trace Control is operating properly.

Even if the Active Trace Control is set to OFF, some functions will remain on to assist the driver (for example: avoidance scenes).
