How do I turn the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) off?

The Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) feature helps your car maintain proper traction when driving in adverse conditions. However, when the vehicle is stuck in snow or mud, the VDC reduces engine output, and you may need to turn off the feature to free your vehicle. To do so, simply press the VDC Off switch. A warning light will illuminate on the instrument panel to confirm that the system is turned off. After you have unstuck your vehicle, press the switch again to turn the system back on. Tips If you forget to turn the VDC back on, it will automatically do so when you next turn on the vehicle.
