(1) TCL does not actively apply brakes. Always decelerate the vehicle sufficiently before entering corners or bends.
(2) On snowy or icy roads, drive slowly using tyre chains or snow tyres.
(3) When the TCL indication lamp illuminates, SLIP control is being operated, and it means that the road is slippery or your vehicle is excessively accelerating. In this situation, release foot from the accelerator pedal and maintain moderate speed.
(4) Never mix or use tyres of different size since the TCL system could function incorrectly and make safe driving difficult.
