Tips
If
the
&
or
a
indicator
light
only
stays
on
for
a
short
time,
you
may
continue
driving.
All
wheel
drive
(quattro)
Applies
to:
vehicles
with
all
wheel
drive
The
all-wheel
drive
system
distributes
the
driving
power
variably
to
the
front
and
rear
axle
to
im-
prove
the
driving
characteristics.
It
works
togeth-
er
with
selective
wheel
torque
control,
which
can
activate
when
driving
through
curves

The
all-wheel
drive
system
is
designed
for
high
engine
power.
Your
vehicle
is
exceptionally
pow-
erful
and
has
excellent
driving
characteristics
both
under
normal
driving
conditions
and
on
snow
and
ice.
Always
read
and
follow

WARNING
Even
in
vehicles
with
all
wheel
drive,
you
should
adapt
your
driving
style
to
the
cur-
rent
road
and
traffic
conditions
to
reduce
the
risk
of
an
accident.
The
braking
ability
of
your
vehicle
is
limited
to
the
traction
of
the
wheels.
In
this
way,
it
is
not
different
from
a
two
wheel
drive vehi-
cle.
Do
not
drive too
fast
because
this
in-
creases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
Note
that
on
wet
streets,
the
front
wheels
can
“hydroplane’”
if
driving
at
speeds
that
are
too high.
Unlike
front
wheel
drive
vehicles,
the
engine
RPM
does
not
increase
suddenly
when
the
vehicle
begins
hydro-
planing.
Adapt
your
speed
to
the
road
condi-
tions
to
reduce
the
risk
of
an
accident.

Electronic
Stabilization
Control
Electronic
Stabilization
Control
(ESC)
supports
driver
safety.
It
reduces
the
risk
of
slipping
and
improves
driving
stability.
ESC
detects
critical
sit-
uations,
such
as
if
the
vehicle
is
oversteering
or
understeering,
or
if
the
wheels
are
spinning.
The
brakes
are
applied
or
the
engine torque
is
re-
duced
in
order
to
stabilize
the
vehicle.
If
the
Eq
indicator
light
blinks
while
driving,
the
ESC
is
actively
regulating.
If
the
BA
indicator
light
turns
on,
the
system
has
switched
the
ESC
off.
In
this
case,
you
can
switch
the
ignition
off
and
then
on
to
switch
the
ESC
on
again.
The indicator
light
turns
off
when
the
sys-
tem
is
fully
functional.
If
the
B
indicator
light
turns
on,
ESC
was

ed

hard
braking.
Apply
steady
pressure
to
the
brake
pedal.
Do
not
pump
the
pedal.
A
pulsing
in
the
brake
pedal
indicates
that
the
system
is
acting
to
stabilize
the
vehicle.

The
brake
assist
system
can
decrease

dis-
tance.

sit-
uations.
