Electronic stability control (ESC)

Electronic stability control (ESC)  - Advancetrac stability enhancement system - Driving - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

Electronic stability control (ESC) may enhance your vehicles directional stability during adverse maneuvers, for example when cornering severely or avoiding objects in the roadway. ESC operates by applying brakes to one or more of the wheels individually and, if necessary, reducing engine power if the system detects that the vehicle is about to skid or slide laterally.

During ESC events, the stability control light in the instrument cluster will flash.

Certain adverse driving maneuvers may activate ESC, which include but are not limited to:
Taking a turn too fast
Maneuvering quickly to avoid an accident, pedestrian or obstacle
Driving over a patch of ice or other slippery surfaces
Changing lanes on a snow-rutted road
Entering a snow-free road from a snow-covered side street, or vice versa
Entering a paved road from a gravel road, or vice versa
