CSC: definition, function, operating principle, and causes of failure

CSC (Cornering Stability Control) is a system installed on Tata cars designed to help improve stability when braking in corners. This system improves the vehicle’s handling and eliminates understeer and oversteer.

How CSC works

CSC is a subsystem of ABS that works closely with electronic brake force distribution and traction control systems. Using ABS wheel sensors, CSC detects when the car begins to skid. It then adjusts the pressure of the working fluid in each brake circuit using the ABS hydraulic unit’s solenoids and pump. As a result, braking is more efficient and the car has better grip on the road.

Reasons for malfunction

  • Faulty ABS sensors
  • Brake fluid leaks
  • Installation of the wrong sized tyres
  • Replacement of tyres individually rather than in pairs.
