Question about 2000 Subaru Legacy
VDC is Vehicle Dynamics Control
VDC is composed of 2 main systems: VTD plus VDC full time 4 wheel
traction and engine management.
VDC is traction control that senses vehicle direction and uses brake,
throttle and engine management to help maintain stability.
The components of the VDC system are:
all wheel drive using the VTD system.
When the wheels are spinning without traction or the vehicle is not
going in the direction it is being steered, the VDC system kicks in.
Direction: uses brakes to slow down wheels to reduce spin and help
control vehicle direction.
Skidding: yaw and steering wheel sensors use brakes to slow down
spinning wheels and re-direct power to the wheel(s) with the best
traction to re-gain control.
Engine power use engine output to slow spinning by reducing spark to
cylinders to cut back power and help re-gain control.
You may have a problem with the traction circuit itself or a sensor. I would have a diagnostic test done to verify if it is faulty and needs to be replaced. Do check tranny and transfer case fluids and filter and check any wiring to the system to make sure it is not brittle or broken
