During normal mode, pressing the VSC OFF switch for a short amount of time changes the vehicle to TRAC OFF mode (AUTO LSD mode), TRAC operation is prohibited, and the VSC OFF and AUTO LSD indicator lights turns on. However, if the vehicle speed exceeds 50 km/h, the indicator lights turns off.

    When the vehicle is stopped, pressing the VSC OFF switch for 3 seconds or more changes the vehicle to VSC OFF mode, TRAC and VSC operation are prohibited, and the TRAC OFF indicator and VSC OFF indicator lights turn on.

  • In 4WD mode:

    Operation of the VSC OFF switch changes the vehicle between normal mode and VSC OFF mode. During normal mode, when the vehicle is stopped, pressing the VSC OFF switch for 3 seconds or more changes the vehicle to VSC OFF mode, TRAC and VSC operation are prohibited, and the TRAC OFF indicator and VSC OFF indicator lights turn on.

    • When the transfer is in L4, VSC is prohibited and the TRAC OFF indicator and VSC OFF indicator lights turn on.
    • When the rear differential is locked, VSC is prohibited and the TRAC OFF indicator and VSC OFF indicator lights turn on. At this time, ABS is also prohibited and the ABS warning light turns on.
