Press the TCS OFF switch to turn off the TCS. The TCS OFF indicator light in the instrument cluster and TCS OFF switch indicator light turn on.
Press the switch again to turn the TCS back on. The TCS OFF indicator light and TCS OFF switch indicator light will turn off.
When TCS is on and you attempt to free the vehicle when it is stuck, or drive it out of freshly fallen snow, the TCS (part of the DSC system) will activate. Depressing the accelerator will not increase engine power and freeing the vehicle may be difficult. When this happens, turn off the TCS.
If the TCS is off when the engine is turned off, it automatically activates when the ignition is switched ON.
Leaving the TCS on will provide the best traction.
If the TCS OFF switch is pressed and held for 10 seconds or longer, the TCS can no longer be turned off even if the TCS OFF switch is pressed.
In this case, the TCS OFF switch will operate normally when the ignition is switched ON again after being switched OFF.
