DTC - Does it learn?

Post by Deadeye » Thu Aug 16, 2018 10:50 am

Does anyone know if the DTC system learns and if so can it be reset?

You could reset the ZF transmission, but the DTC i don't know. Probably the same trick?

I wouldnt imagine it learns. Its got some very clever algorithms, and from what I can research, compensates for things like brake fade. Clearly, things like tyre failure and low tyre pressure will affect traction, so trigger the same responses earlier. As its primary function is safety, I dont know what it could possibly “learn” from, its got all sorts of parameters it checls, from steering position to yaw, pitch and roll rate, so it could behave differently in different situations, based on the algorithms that try to keep you on the black stuff. What makes you ask?

It was DTC. I changed my Contis to PSSs and the traction changed completely. They nearly felt as bad as the dreaded PS4Ss.

However, a heat cycle and a good thrashing fixed it.

I think it does learn...

Assuming new PSSs then initial traction will be poor - they, and all new tyres need to be scrubbed for full traction.

No. The thresholds are factory set. What will change are things like ambient temperature, tyre make, tyre temperature, road surface and so on.
