Land Rover Discovery: Traction control

The Electronic Traction Control (ETC) system operates in conjunction with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and is designed to assist if any of the wheels lose traction, causing wheel spin.

If a wheel loses traction, then ETC will operate the brake on that wheel and may also manipulate the engine output, until the wheel regains traction. The DSC amber warning lamp will flash to confirm that ETC is active.



The Adaptive dynamics continuously monitors road and driver inputs. It detects rough road and off-road conditions, enhances the vehicle's suspension settings to suit each surface type and adjusts control for greater ride comfort.

Adaptive dynamics is also linked to the Terrain response dynamic program, modifying the suspension settings for a more sporting character.

If an adaptive dynamics fault message is displayed in the Message centre, the vehicle can still be driven. The fault may be temporary. If the fault persists, seek qualified assistance as soon as possible.
