A switch which allows the driver to temporarily disengage VDC control.

In some occasions, better results are obtained by canceling the VDC to allow the drive wheels to slip for a certain amount:

* When starting the vehicle on icy or unpaved, steep uphill roads.
* When escaping from mud or snow when the wheels are caught in them.
* When the VDC OFF switch is pressed while the engine is running, the VDC OFF indicator light in the combination meter illuminates, and VDC control is temporarily disengaged. When the VDC OFF switch is pressed again, the VDC OFF indicator light turns off and the system returns to "engaged" status. (Temporarily disengaged status and engaged status are altered each time the switch is pressed.)
