Hyundai Venue: Braking System / Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)

Hyundai Venue (QX) (2020-2021) Owners Manual / While Driving / Braking System / Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)

The Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) is a function of the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. It helps ensure the vehicle stays stable when accelerating or braking suddenly on wet, slippery and rough roads where traction over the four tires can suddenly become uneven.

WARNING

Take the following precautions when using the Vehicle Stability Management (VSM):

  • ALWAYS check the speed and the distance to the vehicle ahead. The VSM is not a substitute for safe driving practices.
  • Never drive too fast for the road conditions. The VSM system will not prevent accidents. Excessive speed in bad weather, slippery and uneven roads can result in severe accidents.

VSM operation

VSM ON condition

The VSM operates when:

  • The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is on.
  • Vehicle speed is approximately above 9 mph (15 km/h) on curve roads.
  • Vehicle speed is approximately above 12 mph (20 km/h) when the vehicle is braking on rough roads.

When operating

When you apply your brakes under conditions which may activate the ESC, you may hear sounds from the brakes, or feel a corresponding sensation in the brake pedal. This is normal and it means your VSM is active.

NOTICE

The VSM does not operate when:

  • Driving on a banked road such as gradient or incline.
  • Driving rearward.
  • ESC OFF indicator light is on.
  • EPS (Electric Power Steering) warning light (Hyundai Venue. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)) is on or blinks.

WARNING

If ESC indicator light (Hyundai Venue. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)) or EPS warning light (Hyundai Venue. Vehicle Stability Management (VSM)) stays on or blinks, your vehicle may have a malfunction with the VSM system. When the warning light illuminates, have your vehicle checked by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer as soon as possible.

Driving with wheels and tires with different sizes may cause the ESC system to malfunction. Before replacing tires, make sure all four tires and wheels are the same size. Never drive the vehicle with different sized tires and wheels installed.
