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,
or
The
braking
force
generated
by
the
pressed
brake
pedal
is
greater
than
the
braking
force
that
would
be
initiated
by
the
system
The
ESC,
the
brake
system,
or
the
vehicle
elec-
trical
system
is
not
functioning
ZA
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
these
control
systems
are
installed
and
this
can
affect
driving
stability
and
increase
the
risk of
a
collision.
As
the
vehicle
load
increases, especially
the
roof
load,
the
vehicle's
center
of
gravity
also
increases
along
with
the
risk
of
the
vehicle
tipping.
To
reduce
the
risk
of
an
accident,
al-
ways
adapt
your
driving
style
to
the
current
conditions
and
avoid
sudden
driving
maneu-
vers.

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.
You
may
hear
noises
when
the
systems
de-
scribed
are
working.
The
So
button
for
controlling
the
ESC
is
located
in
the
center
console,
in
front
of
the
selector
lev-
er.
The
ESC
is
automatically
switched
on
when
the
ignition
is
switched
on.
It
may
make
sense
in
some
situations
to
limit
the
ESC
so
that
the
wheels
can
spin:
Rocking
the
vehicle
to
free
it
when
it
is
stuck
Driving
in
deep
snow,
on
unpaved
ground,
or
with
snow
chains
Driving
downhill
while
braking
on
loose
ground
Driving
with
axle
articulation
