Advancetrac with roll stability control (RSC ) stability enhancement system  - Driving - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

The AdvanceTrac with RSC system provides the following stability enhancement features for certain driving situations:

Traction control system (TCS), which functions to help avoid drive-wheel spin and loss of traction.
Electronic stability control (ESC), which functions to help avoid skids or lateral slides
Roll Stability Control (RSC ), which functions to help avoid a vehicle roll-over.

WARNING: Vehicle modifications involving braking system, aftermarket roof racks, suspension, steering system, tire construction and/or wheel/tire size may change the handling characteristics of the vehicle and may adversely affect the performance of the AdvanceTrac with RSC system. In addition, installing any stereo loudspeakers may interfere with and adversely affect the AdvanceTrac with RSC system. Install any aftermarket stereo loudspeaker as far as possible from the front center console, the tunnel, and the front seats in order to minimize the risk of interfering with the AdvanceTrac with RSC sensors. Reducing the effectiveness of the AdvanceTrac with RSC system could lead to an increased risk of loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover, personal injury and death.

WARNING: Remember that even advanced technology cannot defy the laws of physics. Its always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions. Aggressive driving on any road condition can cause you to lose control of your vehicle increasing the risk of personal injury or property damage.

Activation of the AdvanceTrac with RSC system is an indication that at least some of the tires have exceeded their ability to grip the road; this could reduce the operators ability to control the vehicle, potentially resulting in a loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover, personal injury and death. If your AdvanceTrac with RSC system activates, SLOW DOWN.

WARNING: If a failure has been detected within the AdvanceTrac with RSC system, the stability control light and stability control off light will illuminate steadily. Verify that the AdvanceTrac with RSC system was not manually disabled through the message center. If the stability control light and stability control off light still illuminate steadily, have the system serviced by an authorized dealer immediately. Operating your vehicle with AdvanceTrac with RSC disabled could lead to an increased risk of loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover, personal injury and death.

The AdvanceTrac with RSC system automatically enables each time the engine is started. All features of the AdvanceTrac with RSC system (TCS, ESC, and RSC ) are active and monitor the vehicle from start-up.

However, the system will only intervene if the driving situation requires it.

The AdvanceTrac with RSC

The AdvanceTrac with RSC system includes a traction control off selection located in the message center, a stability control light and a stability control off light in the instrument cluster. Refer to Message center in the Instrument cluster section for more information. Both the stability control light and the stability control off light will illuminate temporarily during start-up as part of a normal system self-check. The stability control light may illuminate (flash) during certain driving conditions which cause the AdvanceTrac with RSC system to operate.

If the stability control light and stability control off light illuminate steadily, have the system serviced by an authorized dealer immediately.

The message center will also indicate a failure with the AdvanceTrac with RSC system.

When AdvanceTrac with RSC performs a normal system self-check, some drivers may notice a slight movement of the brake, and/or a rumble, grunting, or grinding noise after startup and when driving off.

When an event occurs that activates AdvanceTrac with RSC you may experience the following:

A slight deceleration of the vehicle
The stability control light will flash.
A vibration in the pedal when your foot is on the brake pedal If the driving condition is severe and your foot is not on the brake, the brake pedal may move as the systems applies higher brake forces. You may also hear a whoosh of air from under the instrument panel during this severe condition.
The brake pedal may feel stiffer than usual.
