Mazda 2: Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

Mazda2 DJ 2014–2020 Owners Manual / When Driving / ABS/TCS/DSC / Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) automatically controls braking and engine torque in conjunction with systems such as ABS and TCS to help control side slip when driving on slippery surfaces, or during sudden or evasive manoeuvring, enhancing vehicle safety.

Refer to ABS (page 4-82 ) and TCS (page 4-83 ).

DSC operation is possible at speeds greater than 20 km/h (12 mph).

The warning light turns on when the system has a malfunction.

Refer to Warning Lights on page 4-38 .

WARNING

Do not rely on the Dynamic Stability Control as a substitute for safe driving: The Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) cannot compensate for unsafe and reckless driving, excessive speed, tailgating (following another vehicle too closely), and hydroplaning (reduced tyre friction and road contact because of water on the road surface). You can still have an accident.

CAUTION

The DSC may not operate correctly unless the following are observed:

The DSC may not operate correctly when tyre chains are used or a temporary spare tyre is installed because the tyre diameter changes.

TCS/DSC Indicator Light

If the light stays on, the TCS, DSC or the brake assist system may have a malfunction and they may not operate correctly. Take your vehicle to an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer.

DSC OFF Indicator Light

This indicator light stays on
for a few seconds when the ignition is switched ON.

It also illuminates when the DSC OFF switch is pressed and TCS/DSC is switched off.
