Electronic
Stabilization
Control
(ESC)
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.
When
the
ESC
engages,
the
B
indicator
light
blinks
in
the
instrument
cluster.
The
following
systems
are
integrated
in
the
ESC:
Anti-lock
braking
system
(ABS)
ABS
prevents
the
wheels
from
locking
when
brak-
ing.
The
vehicle
can
still
be
steered
even
during
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.
Brake
assist
system
The brake
assist
system
can
decrease
braking
dis-
tance.
It
increases
braking
power
when
the
driver
presses
the
brake pedal
quickly
in
emergency
sit-
uations.
You
must
press
and
hold
the
brake
pedal
until
the
dangerous
situation
is
over.
In
vehicles
with
adaptive
cruise
control*,
the
brake
assist
system
is
more
sensitive
if
the
distance
detected
to
the
vehicle
driving
ahead
is
too
small.
Anti-Slip
Regulation
(ASR)
ASR
reduces
drive
power
when
the
tires
begin
spinning
and
adapts
the
power
to
the
road
condi-
tions.
This
will
increase
the
driving
stability.
Electronic
Differential
Lock
(EDL)
The
EDL
applies
the
brakes
to
wheels
that
are
slipping
and
transfers
the
drive
power
to
the
oth-
er
wheels.
This
function
is
not
available
at
higher
speeds.
In
extreme
cases,
EDL
automatically
switches
off
to
keep
the
brake
on
the
braked
wheel
from
over-
164
heating.
The
vehicle
is
still
functioning
correctly.
EDL
will
switch
on
again
automatically
when
con-
ditions
have
returned
to
normal.
Power
steering
The ESC
can
also
support
vehicle
stability
through
steering.
Selective
wheel
torque
control
Selective
wheel
torque
control
is
used
when
driv-
ing
on
curves.
Braking
is
targeted
toward
the
wheels
on
the
inside
of
the
curve
as
needed.
This
allows
more
precise
driving
in
curves.
Automatic
post-collision
braking
system
The
automatic
post-collision
braking
system
can
help
to
reduce
the
risk
of
sliding
and
of
addition-
al
collisions
after
an
accident.
If
the
airbag
con-
trol
module
detects
a
collision,
the
vehicle
is
braked
by
the
ESC.
The
vehicle
does
not
brake
automatically
if
one
of
the
following
occurs:
The
driver
presses
the
accelerator
pedal
The
ESC,
the
brake
system,
or
the
vehicle
elec-
trical
system
is
not
functioning
Z\
WARNING
The ESC and
its
integrated
systems
cannot
overcome
the
limits
imposed
by
natural
physical
laws.
This
is
especially
important
on
slippery
or
wet
roads.
If
the
systems
begin
acting
to
stabilize
your
vehicle,
you
should
immediately
alter
your
speed
to
match
the
road
and
traffic
conditions.
Do
not
let
the
in-
creased
safety
provided
tempt
you
into tak-
ing
risks.
This
could
increase
your
risk of
a
collision.
Please
note
the
risk
of
a
collision
increases
when
driving
fast,
especially
through
curves
and
on
slippery
or
wet
roads,
and
when
driv-
ing
too
close
to
objects
ahead. There
is
still
a
risk
of
accidents
because
the
ESC and
its
integrated
systems
cannot
always
prevent
collisions.
Accelerate
carefully
when
driving
on
smooth,
slippery
surfaces
such
as
ice
and
snow.
The
drive
wheels
can
spin
even
when
