About INFINITI Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)
Continuously monitor the driver’s actions and vehicle to prepare for a potential safety issue, INFINITI Vehicle Dynamic Control is always ready to take action. Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) has the ability correct oversteer or understeer by applying brake pressure to individual wheels and adjusting the engine’s power output. This advanced action allows your INFINITI vehicle to stay on its intended path and out of danger in situations where the conditions would normally cause you to swerve.
How to Use Vehicle Dynamic Control
If your INFINITI is equipped with VDC, the system will be automatically engaged when you start the vehicle. No further action will be required on your part. While it’s true that there is a dedicated VDC button that can turn the system on and off, INFINITI recommends leaving VDC on at all times.
When the button is pressed, a VDC OFF indicator light will appear on the dashboard to let you know that the system is disengaged. Only a select few situations might require you to disengage VDC. An example would be if you were trying to free your vehicle from being stuck in mud or deep snow.
