Nissan Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com
VDC is Vehicle Dynamic Control. When this is on, it won't let the wheels spin. It slows them down by the ABS system and pulsates the wheel. So example is if your stuck in the snow. If the VDC is on, you won't be able to sit there and spin your tires. The VDC system will sense wheel slippage and will activate and transfer power from right to left on the front wheels. It so you can control the car instead of allowing the wheels to spin and loose control.
Hmmmm - okay, so if I'm not stuck in the snow, just driving icy roads, would you suggest using this option?
Yes. Cause if you start to slide, this system will help you to control the car and it will work both wheels to gain control
Okee doke, then. I'm off for my first adventure in bad weather with my new car. Thanks a lot.
What I would recommend you do so you
are use to how it activates
So you don't get scared when it first works
Is go to a parking lot, and slam the gas down and try to spin the tires
The engine will not rev, and the car will do what ever it takes to accelerate and stay in control
Just a suggestion
I normally suggest the same thing to someone who is not familiar with ABS also.
Okay - I park in a garage downtown, so I'll try it before getting on the road.
You got it.
