Trailer Stabilisation

Electronic trailer stabilisation is a subsidiary function of the electronic stabilisation program ESP. The system detects any instability of the vehicle that is caused by a trailer being towed at an inappropriate speed. The vehicle and trailer combination is steadied by means of deliberate reduction of the engine torque and appropriate braking of particular wheels. Trailer stabilisation thus makes a significant contribution to increased driving safety.
