System Description

  • Vehicle dynamic control system detects driver's steering operation amount from the steering angle sensor.

    Using input information from the yaw rate/side/decel G sensor and wheel speed sensors, the VDC system judges driving conditions (conditions of understeer and oversteer) and controls engine output and brake application to improve vehicle driving stability.

  • During VDC operation, it informs driver of system operation by flashing SLIP indicator lamp.
  • Electrical system diagnosis by CONSULT is available.
