What Is INFINITI VDC?
INFINITI VDC stands for Vehicle Dynamic Control, and it is an advanced safety feature that monitors the driver's actions and vehicle for potential safety issues. While driving if a situation occurs that enables the VDC to take action, it can control brake pressure and engine output to help the driver maintain control.
How Does INFINITI VDC Work?
When the VDC system senses there is a problem like if the car is to swerve suddenly, it will activate to control brake pressure and engine output to help correct oversteering or understeering. The system will also apply brake pressure to individual wheels to keep your INFINITI on your intended path.
Can You Turn Off INFINITI's Vehicle Dynamic Control?
When you start your INFINITI, if it is equipt with VDC it should turn on automatically. While it can be toggled ON or OFF by pushing a button, INFINITI recommends keeping the vehicle dynamic control on.
When you push the VDC OFF switch an indicator light will illuminate. If you have turned OFF the VDC system, it will turn back ON when you push its switch a second time. Also, when you turn OFF and then restart your vehicle, the system will automatically come on again.
Why Would A Driver Turn Off Infiniti's VDC?
In most situations, you will want the VDC to remain on and active. There may be certain circumstances where you might want to disable VDC. A prime example might be if you are trying to get your vehicle out of being stuck in mud or snow.
