Mazda CX-5 Owners Manual: Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)

Mazda CX-5 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 maneuvering, enhancing vehicle safety.

Refer to ABS  and TCS .

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

A system malfunction or operation conditions are indicated by a warning.

Refer to Warning/Indicator Lights on .

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 tire 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:

Use tires of the correct size specified for your Mazda on all four wheels.

Use tires of the same manufacturer, brand and tread pattern on all four wheels.

Do not mix worn tires.

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

Traction Control System (TCS)
The Traction Control System (TCS) enhances traction and safety by controlling engine torque and braking. When the TCS detects driving wheel slippage, it lowers engine torque and operates the brak ...

AWD
All-Wheel Drive (AWD) Operation • AWD provides excellent drivability on snow-covered and ice-packed roads, sand and mud, as well as on steep slopes and other slippery surfaces. • A system ...

Other materials:

ABS Control
Outline ABS control occurs when wheel slip is determined by the DSC CM (based on the four ABS wheel-speed sensors). Then, the DSC HU inlet and outlet solenoid valves are operated and brake fluid pressure is controlled accordingly to prevent wheel lock-up. Feature Use of ...

Vacuum Pump Inspection
1. Pinch open the clamp using pliers and disconnect the vacuum hose from the vacuum pump.. 2. Install the vacuum gauge as shown in the figure, then check the vacuum. 3. Warn up the engine. If the pressure is less than the specification, inspect for the following. Malf ...

Magnetic Clutch Adjustment [Full Auto Air Conditioner]
1. Measure the clearance around the entire circumference between the pressure plate and A/C compressor pulley using a thickness gauge. 2. Verify the clearance. If not within the specification, remove the pressure plate and adjust the clearance by changing the shim (0.2 mm {0.008 i ...
