On slippery road surfaces, the traction control system (TCS) limits the drive

On slippery road surfaces, the traction control system (TCS) limits the drive wheels from spinning excessively, thus helping the car to accelerate. It also provides improved driving force and steering performance as the car turns at accelerated speeds.

CAUTION CAUTION

When the TCS indicator blinks, SLIP control function has been activated. It also means that the road is slippery or your car is accelerating excessively. In this situation, release foot pressure from the accelerator pedal and maintain moderate speed.
