dynamic
these
control
systems
are
installed
and
this
can
affect
driving
stability
and
increase
the
risk
of
a
collision.
Gi)
Tips
The
ABS
and
ASR
only
function
correctly
when
all
four
wheels
have
a
similar
wear
condition.
Different
tire
sizes
can
lead
to
a
reduction
in
engine
power.
The
So
button
(or
2,
depending
on
the
model)
for
controlling
the
ESC
is
located
in
the
center
console,
in
front
of
the
selector
lever.
The ESC
is
automatically
switched
on
when
the
ignition
is
switched
on.
Limiting
ESC
In
some
situations,
it
may
make
sense
to
limit
the
stabilizing
function
of
the
ESC
so
that
the
wheels
can
spin,
for
example
to
rock
a
vehicle
to
free
it
when
it
is
stuck
or to
drive
with
snow
chains.
The ESC
can
also
be
limited
to
provide
more
sporty
driving
characteristics
with
fewer
stabilizing
corrective
actions.
—To
limit
the
ESC,
press
the
oF
button
briefly.
The
B
indicator
light
will
turn
on.
To
completely
reactivate
the
ESC
stabilization
function,
press
the
button
again.
The indicator
light
turns
off.
When
ESC
is
limited,
allroad
models
switch
to
Offroad
mode.
All
other
model
versions
switch
to
Sport
mode.
Sport
mode
is
particularly
suited
for
driving
on
an
even
road
surface.
Offroad
mode
is
designed
for
uneven
terrain
or
loose
ground.
Switching
off
ESC
For
a
more
active
control
of
the
vehicle
where
the
stabilizing
functions
of
the
ESC
cannot
intervene,
the
ESC
can
be
switched
off.
—To
switch
off
the
ESC,
press
and
hold
the
Sor
button
for
more
than
three
seconds.
The
B
and
Ea
indicator
lights
turn
on.
To
completely
reactivate
the
ESC
stabilization
function,
press
the
button
again.
The indicator
lights
turn
off.

WARNING
When
the
ESC
is
switched
off
or
limited,
there
will
be
no
vehicle
stabilization
or
it
will
be
limited.
The
driving
wheels
could
spin
and
the
vehicle
could
swerve,
especially
on
slick
or
slippery
road
surfaces,
which
in-
creases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
Because
of
the
increased
risk
of
an
accident,
only
drive
with
the
ESC
switched
off
or
limit-
ed
when
it
is
necessary.
Reactivate
the
ESC
as
soon
as
possible.
