Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Trailer stabilisation

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The trailer stabilisation function is an extension to the electronic stabilisation programme (ESP). It helps, in conjunction with the driver steering recommendation function, to reduce the risk of rocking when towing a trailer.

An active trailer stabilisation function can be recognised when the ESP indicator lamp in the instrument cluster lights up for approximately two seconds longer than the ABS indicator lamp.

Requirements for trailer stabilisation

WARNING

Do not let the extra safety afforded by the trailer stabilisation function tempt you into taking any risks when driving – this can cause accidents.
