Emergency Stop
If the seat accidentally begins to move, press any seat control button to stop the seat.

Occupant Restraint System

The system provides protection to the driver and all passengers in a variety of impact conditions.

The system consists of:

  • Driver and front passenger safety belts with dual pre-tensioners and load limiting systems.
  • Rear passenger safety belts.
  • Driver and front passenger dual-stage airbags.
  • Side airbags mounted to driver and front passenger seats.
  • Roof mounted curtain airbags.
  • Driver knee bolster airbag.

All of these systems are controlled by the Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC). In a collision the ORC will analyze information from various sensors, such as crash and seat occupancy conditions. Based on this information the system will deploy the appropriate safety devices. During a crash, the ORC may or may not operate the safety belt pre-tensioner(s) and none, one, or both stages of the dual-stage airbag supplemental restraints. If the pre-tensioners or airbags do not operate in a collision it does not mean that something is wrong with the system. Rather, it means the system determined the accident conditions (crash severity, belt usage, etc.) were not appropriate to operate these safety devices. Front airbags are designed to operate only in frontal and near-frontal collisions, not rollovers, side-impacts, or rear-impacts unless the collision causes sufficient longitudinal deceleration.

Determining if the System is Operational
The ORC warning symbol is shown in the instrument cluster to give the condition of the system. A fault with the system is shown by one or more of the following:

  • The warning symbol will flash or stay ON.
  • The warning symbol does not come ON immediately after the ignition is set to ON.
  • A message will show in the right side instrument cluster window with a description of the fault.

If either of these conditions occur, even intermittently, have the restraint system serviced at your Aston Martin Dealer immediately. Unless serviced, the system may not operate correctly in the event of a collision.

Seat Belts

Warning: Seat belts should not be worn with straps twisted.

Warning: Seat belts are designed for adults; infants and smaller children must be restrained in an approved child safety seat.

Warning: Each belt assembly must only be used by one occupant; it is dangerous to put a belt around a child being carried on the passenger’s lap. Do not put an adult seat belt around two children.

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Airbags User Manual

2021 Aston Martin DBX Airbags User Manual

Airbags

The purpose of the airbags is to provide additional protection for the driver and passenger in the event of a serious impact (front or side impacts). The airbags are supplementary to the seat belts. Important airbag safety labels are located on the sun visors and on the end of the instrument panel (passenger side). Make sure that the instructions on these labels are read and complied with before driving the vehicle.
The front driver’s (A), passenger (B) and knee bolster airbag (C) only deploy in a serious front collision. The side airbags located in the seats (D) and the curtain airbag (E), located in the roof trim, only deploy according to which side has been impacted in a serious side collision.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Airbags User Manual 01

Airbag Deployment

Warning: The use of accessory seat covers may prevent the deployment of the seat-side airbags and increase the risk of injury in an accident. Do not use accessory seat covers.
Warning: All passengers, including the driver, should always wear seat belts, whether or not an airbag is provided, to decrease the risk of injury or death in the event of a crash.
Warning: No objects whatsoever should be attached to, or placed on, the center cover of the steering wheel or the front passenger fascia panel. Such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is in a collision severe enough to cause the airbags to deploy.
The airbag system is not designed to protect against rear impacts.

Airbags inflate rapidly and with considerable force; there is therefore a risk of death or serious injury such as fractures, facial and eye injuries or internal injuries, particularly to passengers who are not correctly restrained by seat belts or are not sitting correctly when the airbags deploy. The risk of injury from a deploying airbag is greatest close to the trim panel covering the airbag.
The whole sequence of events from sensing the impact to full inflation of the airbag takes place in a fraction of a second.
Do not change, modify or tamper with the steering wheel, passenger side fascia or any other part of the airbag system. Such actions could disable the system or cause inadvertent airbag deployment. The system will not deploy in the event of minor frontal or side impacts, such as contacts when parking.
All work on the airbag system must only be carried out by an Aston Martin Dealer.

Child Safety

Aston Martin strongly recommends:

  • That all children are sat in the rear passenger seats.
  • Always use ISOFIX anchors where available.
  • Only two child seats be installed to the rear of the vehicle at any time.
  • A child, regardless of age, should always be restrained when traveling in a vehicle.

Your vehicle has the following devices for the installation of child restraints:

  • Front passenger seat with Occupant Classification System (OCS).
  • Rear seat ISOFIX anchors with tether anchor points.
  • Passenger seat Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) seat belts.

Warning: The seat belt reminder function is only designed to recognize an adult-sized occupant and will not be activated by a child seat. If a child seat is to be secured to the front passenger seat with a seat belt, make sure it is correctly installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. A child seat that is not correctly restrained can cause an infant or child to be seriously injured or killed in a crash.

Warning: Accident statistics show that children are generally safer when correctly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat. A suitable child restraint, correctly installed and used, provides the highest degree of protection for infants and small children in most accident situations.

Warning: Do not allow children to travel in a vehicle without being correctly restrained. An appropriate child seat or harness should always be used.

Warning: Each seat belt assembly must be used by only one passenger. It is dangerous to put a seat belt around a child being carried on the passenger’s lap.

Warning: Make sure that an installed child seat does not rest against the door, that the child sits correctly in the seat, and does not lean close to, or against, the door or window.

Child Seat Belt Fastening

Warning: An infant or child that is not correctly restrained can be seriously injured or killed in a crash. Seat belts are designed for adults; infants and smaller children must be restrained in an approved child safety seat.
Make sure that there is no slack in the webbing and that the restraint installs correctly across the child’s rib cage and hips. These are the parts of the body most able to take the force of impact. The lap strap should pass across the top of the child’s thighs, bearing on the pelvis, not on the abdominal area.

Warning Labels

Warning: Extreme Hazard: NEVER use a rearward-facing child restraint on a seat protected by an ACTIVE AIRBAG in front of it. DEATH or SERIOUS INJURY to the Child can occur. Warning labels are located on both sides of the passenger sun visor.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Airbags User Manual 04

Occupant Classification System

The Occupant Classification System (OCS) is part of the Occupant restraints Control (ORC) System and operates in addition to the restraints system.
OCS uses capacitive measurement to differentiate between adults, occupied small (1-year-old or younger) child restraint seats, and empty seats. Capacitive measurement is not weight sensitive and depends on chemical and physical features to determine if an object or a person is in the passenger seat. This information is then sent to the ORC module. If the OCS determines an adult is in the passenger seat, the passenger airbag will be active and if there is a child seat present, or the seat is empty, the passenger airbag will be automatically switched off. If it is necessary to modify the restraints system to accommodate a person with disabilities, contact your Aston Martin Dealer. If the front passenger seat is occupied by an adult, the PASS
AIRBAG status symbol will be set to Aston Martin DBX 2021 Airbags User Manual 05 (A).

The passenger airbag will be set to off if:

  • The front passenger seat is unoccupied.
  • The measured capacitance is less than that of a typical 1 (one) year old infant.

If the airbag is set to off, the PASS AIRBAG status symbol will also be set to (B).Aston Martin DBX 2021 Airbags User Manual 03

Passenger Seat Airbag PASS AIRBAG STATUS SYMBOL

Empty OffAston Martin DBX 2021 Airbags User Manual 5
Child + Child Seat Off

The PASS AIRBAG OFF symbol will come on for a short period when the ignition is switched on to confirm it is ready.

Warning: Important OCS components, such as the capacitive sensor and control unit, are installed in the front passenger seat. Suitable precautions must be take to prevent these components from being damaged. Any damage to the seat trim, such as cuts that have penetrated the trim material, must be inspected by an Aston Martin Dealer. The system must also be checked for corrected functionality. depending on the level of damage, OCS components may require replacement and the system checked again. OCS functionality cannot be warranted if the seat is damaged.

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Seating Position User Manual

2021 Aston Martin DBX Seating Position User Guide

Seating Position

Warning: Always sit upright against the seat backrest and with both feet on the floor. If you do not sit correctly or with the seat backrest reclined too far this can alter the capacitance read by the OCS and affect the functionality of the front passenger sensing system, resulting in serious injury or death in a crash.
After all passengers have adjusted their seats and put on safety belts, its very important that they continue to sit correctly. A correctly seated passenger sits upright, leaning against the seat backrest, and centered on the seat cushion, with their feet comfortably extended on the floor. Sitting incorrectly can increase the chance of injury in a crash event. For example, if a passenger slouches, lies down, turns sideways, sits forward, leans forward or side ways, or puts one or both feet up, the chance of injury during a crash is greatly increased. If a person of adult size is sitting in the front passenger’s seat and the PASS AIRBAG symbol is not sitting correctly in the seat.

If this happens:

  1. Set the ignition to off. Ask the person to place the seat backrest in the full upright position.
  2. Have the person sit upright in the seat, centred on the seat cushion, with the person’s legs comfortably extended.
  3. Start the engine and have the person stay in this position for about two minutes. This will let the system detect that person and set the passenger’s front airbag to on.
  4. If the PASS AIRBAG symbol stays even after this, the person should be advised to sit in a rear seat. (If available)

These conditions can cause the weight of a correctly seated passenger to be incorrectly interpreted by the front passenger sensing system. The person in the front passenger seat can appear heavier or lighter due to the conditions described.

If the PASS AIRBAG symbol stays , Aston Martin DBX 2021 Seating Position User Manual 1 this may or may not be a  problem due to the front passenger sensing system.
Do not attempt to repair or service the system. Take the vehicle immediately to the nearest Aston Martin Dealer.

Child Seat Position Tables

Always follow the child seat manufacturer’s instructions. Not following the child seat manufacturer’s instructions when installing the child seat is dangerous.
All ISOFIX, i-Size, and Universal Belted Child Seats can be installed to either rear outboard seating positions (3) and (5). With a child seat installed, the seat in front can be at its rearmost lowest position with the seatback vertical. For child seats with support legs, the seat in front should also be adjusted forwards enough to make sure the seat does not touch the support leg. Aston Martin recommends that the front passenger and rear center seats are not used with child seats.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Seating Position User Manual 2

Front Child Seat Installation

Warning: Even with the advanced restraints system, children aged 12 and under should be correctly restrained in the rear seats.

Warning: Always follow the child seat manufacturer’s instructions for correct installation. Not following the child seat manufacturer’s instructions when installing the child seat is dangerous.

Warning: All child restraint systems are designed to be secured in vehicle seats by the lap and shoulder belt portion of a safety belt. Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in the vehicle.
The Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) system is designed to securely hold child seats. The ALR system temporarily locks a seat belt that is securing a child seat.

ALR Operation
Gently pull out the seat belt until fully extended. The ALR system will only engage at the maximum extension point of the seat belt. Thread the belt tongue through the child seat as per the child seat manufacturer’s instructions. Engage the tongue into the belt buckle. Adjust the tongue position on the belt to make sure that the lower belt run is tight and then allow the upper run of the seat belt to fully retract until the child seat is securely held. The ALR system will be heard ‘clicking’ as the seat belt retracts.

Load Safety and Guidelines

Warning:
Do not use nets or elastic straps to secure heavy loads. These are designed to prevent light loads from slipping and can fail when used to hold a heavy load. This can cause the load to shift when the vehicle is driven or in the event of a crash and cause damage, injury or death. Always use load straps that are correctly rated for the load to be held.

Warning:
When a load is strapped down, do not route the straps around sharp corners or edges. This can cause the strap to fail. This can cause the load to shift when the vehicle is driven or in the event of a crash and cause damage, injury or death. If sharp corners or edges cannot be avoided, use sufficient padding so as to reduce the risk of damage to the straps.

Warning:
A vehicle’s handling characteristics can change with how a load is distributed. This can cause the vehicle to behave differently when driven at speed. Never exceed the maximum gross vehicle weight (GVW) or the axle loads for the vehicle (Refer to ’Dimensions’, page 11.38).

When a large load is used, follow the below guidelines:

  • Where possible, always store items in the luggage compartment.
  • Use the tie down eyelets to secure the load.
  • Make sure the load is distributed evenly in the luggage compartment and between the tie down eyelets.
  • Move heavy loads as far forward and as low down as possible in the luggage compartment.
  • Where possible, move the load so it is behind an unoccupied seat.
  • Do not allow the load to go above the top of the rear seats.

Load Tie Downs
There are four fixed tie down eyelets (A) in the load compartment that can be used to secure a load.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Storage User Manual 09

Warning: The tether anchor points (B) in the seats are only to be used to secure the tether straps for child seats. They are not engineered to be used to secure heavy loads. Never use the tether anchor points as tie down points.

Folding Rear Seats

To increase load space, the rear seats can be folded flat. The seats can be released with the release switches (A) on the seats or in the luggage compartment.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Storage User Manual 10

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Storage User Manual 11

  1. Left Side Rear Seat
  2. Right side Rear Seat

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Driving and Transmission User Manual

Driving Techniques

Procedures for driving this vehicle may be unfamiliar to many new owners. To make sure that you have a safe and enjoyable entry into this new phase of Aston Martin motoring, please take time to safely acquire the necessary new driving skills. Practice in safe, lower speed conditions before investigating the high-performance potential of the vehicle. Driving behavior, such as avoiding aggressive driving, travelling at lower speeds, correctly inflating tires, reducing periods of idling and not carrying excessive weight, will improve fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions.

Performance Driving Courses
Performance driving courses are available to enable you to fully understand the control functions of your vehicle and also the basic principles of performance driving. Contact your Aston Martin Dealer for further information.

Running-In
This vehicle is fully hot tested during manufacture and no special running-in procedures are necessary. Nevertheless it is recommended to limit engine loads (e.g. by accelerating gently and by using lower gears on steep hills or when negotiating tight turns) during the first 1500 km/900miles.

Track Days
Before using this vehicle on track days contact your Aston Martin Dealer for vehicle set up, service parts and recommendations

Conditions
When driving in wet conditions, water can build up under your tires so that they ride on a layer of water. This is called aquaplaning or hydroplaning. When this happens, you have little or no control. Aquaplaning is more prone to happening at higher road speeds if there is a lot of water on the road and particularly if the tires are also under inflated or approaching minimum tread depth. It is important to take bends or curves at a safe, reasonable speed, particularly when driving on wet or slippery road surfaces. Slow down when it is raining.

Tyre Skip At Low Speed
In certain conditions, the front tires may ‘skip’ at low speeds with summer tires installed when a high level of steering lock is applied. This is a characteristic of the vehicle and does not affect its safety or performance of the vehicle.

Multi-Purpose Camera

The Multi Purpose Camera (A) is mounted at the top of the windscreen and is used to give external information to a number of driving systems in the vehicle.Aston Martin DBX 2021Steering Wheel Controls User Manual 12

To make sure that these additional driving systems function correctly, the area of the windscreen in front of the camera should be kept clean. The camera is under the swept area of the wiper blades, so will be cleaned as the wipers are used in poor weather. In long dry periods such as in summer, the windscreen wipers should be used periodically to prevent build ups of dirt and dust.

How To Start The Engine

Warning: The engine can be started by any person in the vehicle if the brake pedal is pressed down. Care should be taken that the vehicle is not left unattended with the key present and occupants such as young children inside.

Caution:
In extreme low temperatures (-20°C and below) do not run the engine above 4000 rpm, while at standstill or when moving off, until the coolant temperature gauge reaches normal operating temperature. If you do, there is a risk of damage to the engine and transmission.Aston Martin DBX 2021Steering Wheel Controls User Manual 13

Caution:
Make sure the park brake is applied and the transmission is in PARK (P). This will prevent the vehicle from moving once the engine is started. To start the engine, fully press the brake pedal down and press START/STOP (A). Once the engine begins to crank, release START/STOP. Stopping The Engine Press START/STOP to stop the engine.

Quiet Start
Push and hold START/STOP for 3 seconds to use the Quiet Start feature. The button bezel will flash red twice to confirm. In Quiet Start, the volume of the exhaust note is reduced on engine start.

Transmission Controls

The automatic transmission has two main driver modes:

  • Automatic Mode:
  • Transmission is controlled automatically without driver input.
  • Manual Gear Change Mode:
  • Gear changes can be controlled with the gearshift paddles behind the steering wheel.

Automatic Mode
In Automatic mode, gearshifts are made using the Park, Reverse, Neutral, and Drive (PRND) buttons mounted on the center stack. While driving forward, gearshifts are made automatically according to various driving parameters, i.e. road speed, currently selected gear and accelerator demands. When the vehicle is stationary, the transmission will select first gear, ready to move off immediately when the accelerator is pressed.

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Drive Modes User Manual

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Drive Modes User Manual

Drive Modes

Warning: It is the driver’s responsibility to drive safely according to the law and with due regard to prevailing conditions.

Warning: Electronic Stability Program (ESP) must never let the driver be tempted into taking risks which could affect his or her safety or that of other road users. ESP cannot overcome consequences of driving with too much speed for prevailing conditions.

Caution: If repair or replacement of the steering or other surrounding equipment is necessary, always refer to your Aston Martin Dealer. There is a sensor in the steering system which detects steering angle. If the centre position of the steering deviates, the ESP may not operate correctly.

Caution: ESP may not operate correctly when using tyre chains or a temporary spare tyre.

Caution: Use tyres of the same manufacturer, brand, type, tread pattern and correct size specified in this handbook for this vehicle on all four road wheels. Do not mix new and worn tyres on the same axle.

This vehicle has 5 set drive modes available to the driver. GT, Sport, Sport+, Terrain and Terrain+ and a driver customizable Individual setting. Use the drive mode up (A) and down (B) buttons to cycle through the different drive modes.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Drive Modes User Manual 1

Each drive mode affects the calibration settings of the below vehicle systems:

  • ABS and ESP.
  • Engine.
  • Transmission.
  • Suspension.
  • Active roll control.
  • Steering weight.
  • Exhaust.

GT Mode

GT mode provides a default comfort setting, best suited to casual and motorway driving. The transmission is set to use a base transmission calibration when in Drive to suit a touring style of driving and is biased towards comfort. ESP is adjusted for maximum stabilization.

Sport Mode

Sport mode uses a more aggressive calibration when in Drive, yet still comfortable enough to be used for general driving. The exhaust bypass valves operate at lower engine speed to give a sense of increased driver involvement. Suspension ride height is lowered by 15 mm to high speed stage one to provide a lower centre of gravity and improved aerodynamics, and steering efforts are also increased to provide more driver feedback. Active roll control uses a stiffer profile than GT mode to provide greater stability at higher speeds.

Sport+ Mode

Warning: Sport+ mode is only intended for use on dry roads. Greater driver input will be required to maintain vehicle stability.

Warning: It is not recommended to drive the vehicle in Sport+ mode or with ESP Off when a roof load is attached due to the higher centre of gravity and the vehicle’s stability settings. There is an increased risk of and accident which can cause serious injury or death.
Sport+ mode is intended for use on dry roads with good grip levels, as stabilization control provided by ESP and ABS systems is reduced compared to Sport mode whilst set at the same high-speed stage one ride height. Higher levels of wheel slip will be allowed and there will be less stabilization to yaw angle. The transmission is now set to use an even more aggressive calibration than used in Sport mode, with the exhaust bypass valves also revised to open at lower engine loads and speed. The centre differential settings are adjusted to provide an increased bias of drive torque to the rear axle, delivering similar dynamic performance to that of a rear wheel drive vehicle. Active roll control provides further stiffness than Sport mode.

Terrain Mode

Terrain and Terrain+ modes are intended to be used with All-Season tyres (Refer to ’All Season Tyres’, page 11.17).
Terrain mode increases ride height relative to GT mode by approximately 25 mm. ESP stabilization settings are biased to improve performance in an off-road environment, by allowing more wheel slip to enhance driveability and braking performance on low grip surfaces. In certain circumstances the higher levels of slip and a corresponding reduction in yaw stabilization may require greater driver input to stabilize the vehicle. Active roll control is set to allow greater wheel movement at a lower speed to give greater wheel contact on loose surfaces. Engine and transmission is set to a more off road bias by providing a more linear throttle profile and early changes into 2nd gear. If the vehicle is driven at speeds greater than 70 km/h (44 mph) for greater than 10 seconds, or above 80 km/h (50 mph), the suspension will lower to the standard ride height found in GT mode. The suspension ride height will be increased again once the vehicle speed falls below 70 km/h (44 mph).

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Cruise Control User Manual

 

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Speed Limiter

Warning: Only use ACC or the variable speed limiter if road and traffic conditions are appropriate for maintaining a steady speed for a prolonged period. If you do not, the vehicle may cause an accident or collision resulting in death or serious injury.

Warning: Both ACC and the variable speed limiter are aids and cannot take into account road, weather or traffic conditions. You are responsible for vehicle speed, braking, controlling the distance to any vehicle(s) in front and for staying in the correct lane.
The ACC system should not be used when:

  • Road and traffic conditions do not allow you to maintain a constant speed, e.g. in heavy traffic or on winding roads.
  • Driving on smooth or slippery roads. Braking or accelerating can cause the drive wheels to lose traction and the vehicle could then skid.
  • Visibility is poor, such as fog, heavy rain or snow.

Selecting ACC or Variable Speed LimiterAston Martin DBX 2021 Drive Modes User Manual 1

  1. ACC/VARIABLE SPEED LIMITER SELECT: Press switch between Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and variable speed limiter function.
  2. SPEED SET ROCKER SWITCH: Push up to increase or down to decrease the set speed for the ACC or variable speed limiter. Press the rocker switch to resume the set speed.
  3. CAN: Press to cancel the set speed.
  4. INCREASE DISTANCE: Increases the set distance between the vehicle in front and your vehicle.
  5. DECREASE DISTANCE: Decreases the set distance between the vehicle in front and your vehicle.

Operation
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Speed Limiter20ACC can be used to maintain a selected vehicle speed without having to use the accelerator and maintains a set distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
The variable speed limiter brakes automatically so that you do not exceed the set speed. This feature is an aid only and cannot take into account road, weather or traffic conditions. You are responsible for vehicle speed, as well as braking in good time and for staying in the lane.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Speed Limiter20Both ACC and variable speed limiter only operate at speeds above 20 km/h (13 mph).

Setting A Speed
Lightly push the speed selector switch (2) up to increase speed, or down to decrease speed in 1 km/h (1 mph) increments. A hard press in either direction will increase in 10 km/h (5mph) increments. Pressing the switch in either direction will set a new vehicle speed in the cruise control or new vehicle speed limit.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Speed Limiter20ACC will automatically disengage when the brake pedal is pressed or when the vehicle speed falls below 20 km/h (13 mph).

The variable speed limiter is not deactivated when the brake pedal is pressed.

Resuming the Set Speed

Warning: Set speed should only be resumed if the driver is aware of the set speed and intends to return to it.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Speed Limiter20ACC will not resume at speeds below 20 km/h (13 mph).
Press the speed selector switch (2) to resume the set ACC speed or variable speed limit. If the vehicle is accelerated above the set speed, then the set ACC speed will be resumed when the accelerator pedal is released. If the ACC is deactivated, or the brake pedal is pressed, ACC will disengage but the set speed memory will be kept. Press the speed selector switch again and the vehicle will return to the set speed.

Setting a Distance in the ACC

Warning: ACC does not compensate for traffic, road or weather conditions. The driver is responsible for vehicle speed and braking in emergency situations. Do not use ACC in conditions that do not permit a constant speed such as heavy traffic, winding roads or slippery roads due to weather conditions.
The ACC system will maintain a set distance from the vehicle in front. If the vehicle begins to brake, your vehicle will also slow down to match, and increase speed to match up to the speed set in the cruise control. The distance between the two vehicles can be set with the distance controls (4) and (5).
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Speed Limiter20The ACC system may not be able to detect narrow vehicles such as motorcycles or vehicles driving on a different line. Detection of obstacles can also be affected by dirty or obscured sensors.

Deactivating ACC or Variable Speed Limiter

Press the CAN button (3) to deactivate ACC or the variable speed limiter. The ACC and variable speed limiter set speeds will also be cleared when the ignition is set to OFF.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Speed Limiter20ACC will automatically deactivate when:

Blind Spot Assist

Warning: Blind Spot Assist is for visual aid only and does not replace the need for driver awareness. It is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of their surroundings and make sure it is safe to complete a lane change. Always make sure that there is a suitable distance to the side of your vehicle for other road users and obstacles.

Warning: The Blind Spot Assist system can not react to vehicles that approach and overtake you at a greatly different speed. In these situations, the Blind Spot Assist system cannot provide a warning to drivers. Always pay attention to the road traffic around you.
Blind Spot Assist is used to help a driver know if a vehicle is in their blind spot so that a lane change action can be safely completed.
The BSA system uses two rear-facing radar units to monitor the area up to 3.5 m (12 ft) behind your vehicle and 3 m (10 ft) directly next to your vehicle.
Aston Martin DBX 2021 Blind Spot Assist User Manual1

If a vehicle is detected at speeds above approximately 30 km/h (18 mph) and enters the monitoring range directly next to your vehicle, the warning lamp in the exterior mirror will illuminate amber. If a vehicle is detected close to your vehicle in the lateral monitoring range and you switch on the turn signal indicator in that direction the amber warning lamp in the outside mirror will flash. If the turn signal indicator remains on, all other detected vehicles are indicated only by the flashing of the amber warning lamp. If you overtake a vehicle quickly, no warning is given. The system can monitor vehicles when driving around curved roads.

Operation Conditions

For the Blind Spot Assist system to operate the below conditions must be met:

  • Transmission must be in D (Drive).
  • The vehicle must be moving at more than 30 km/h (18 mph).
  • Vehicles in the blind spot area must be traveling at speeds of:
  • More than 5 km/h (3 mph).
  • Between 5 km/h (3 mph) slower and 35 km/h (22 mph) faster than your vehicle.
  • The minimum width for a vehicle to be detected is 0.7 m wide (a motorcycle for example).

System Limitations
The BSA system can be limited in its operation in the below situations:

  • The sensors are dirty or obstructed such as snow or mud on the bumpers.
  • Poor visibility weather conditions (snow, fog, heavy rain etc).
  • Warnings may be incorrectly displayed near to crash barriers or long solid barriers.
  • Warnings can be interrupted when driving alongside long vehicles such as vehicles with long trailers.

System Activation
The BSA system can be activated or deactivated in the infotainment system (Refer to ’Assistance’, page 10.3).

Blind Spot Warnings

Stage One Warning
When the BSA system detects a vehicle in the driver’s blind spot area, an amber LED triangle (A) will be shown in the top outer corner of the door mirror.

Stage Two Warning
The BSA system will be set to stage two if:

  • A vehicle is detected in the blind spot area.
  • The indicator is used to signal movement into that lane.

When this happens, the below actions will take place.

  •  The amber triangle in the door mirror will flash.
  • A warning symbol will show in the instrument cluster (changes for the direction of lane change).

Door Exit Warning

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Blind Spot Assist User Manual2A door Exit Warning is available when the vehicle is stationary and the transmission is in P (Park) or D (Drive). The feature operates up to 3 minutes after the engine is off.
The Door Exit Warning function is a subfunction of the BSA system and detects if a vehicle or bicycle is passing that may come into contact with the door when it is opened. When the door is opened1 the BSA radars will check for any approaching vehicles. If there is a risk of collision, then audible warning will be heard as the door is opened. In addition, if a front door is opened then the BSA warning triangles will be illuminated in the door mirrors.

Fault Conditions

In the unlikely event of a fault in the BSA system, a warning message will also show in the instrument cluster. Contact your Aston Martin Dealer.

Traffic Sign Assist

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Traffic Sign Assist User ManualTraffic Sign Assist is an aid only. Traffic Sign Assist may not always be able to correctly display road restrictions. It is the drivers responsibility to be aware of the traffic signs and restrictions for the road being driven on. Traffic signs always take precedent over the display from Traffic Sign Assist.
Aston Martin DBX 2021 Traffic Sign Assist User ManualThe Traffic Sign Assist system works with the navigation system to determine the road speed limit.
The Traffic Sign Assist function shows maximum permitted speeds for the road in the instrument cluster. The system will also give indication of any overtaking restrictions and give a warning if the vehicle is driven down a one way street the wrong way. When you drive past a traffic sign that applies to the road you are on, this information will be updated in the instrument cluster. The Traffic Sign Assist display will update without a visible traffic sign when you change roads such as joining another road that has a different speed limit. If Traffic Sign Assist cannot determine a maximum permitted speed for the road, no speed limit is shown in the instrument cluster.
Aston Martin DBX 2021 Traffic Sign Assist User ManualIf a traffic sign is passed that gives the end of a road restriction, such as a speed limit, this information is shown for five seconds. Applicable traffic regulation will continue to be shown in the instrument cluster.

Additional Restrictions
Traffic Sign Assist is capable of detecting traffic signs that have additional restrictions such as alternative speed limits in wet conditions.
Additional restrictions will only be displayed if there is a regulation that must be followed with the restriction, or Traffic Sign Assist is cannot correctly determine if the restriction is in effect.

Traffic Sign Settings
Warnings for wrong-way and overtaking restrictions will stay active when the Traffic sign Assist is set to off.
For settings for Traffic Sign Assist (Refer to ’Assistance’, page 10.3)

System Limitations
Traffic Sign Assist may not function correctly in the below conditions:

  • The area around the multi-purpose camera is dirty, damaged or otherwise covered.
  • The traffic signs are hard to detect due to insufficient lighting or obscured by dirt, ice, snow etc.
  • Weather conditions such as snow, rain, fog or spray which can cause low visibility or hide road signs.
  • Glare into the multi-purpose camera from the sun or other road users’ headlamps.
  • The traffic signs are unclear or obscured, such as signs in construction areas.
  • The information in the navigation system is incorrect and requires an update.

Brakes

Footbrake

The footbrake uses a vacuum-boosted, dual (diagonal split) circuit hydraulic system with Anti-lock Brake System (ABS).

Warning: In the event of a brake failure, bring the vehicle to a stop as soon as it is safe to do so. Do not continue to drive the vehicle. To do so could result in an accident or collision resulting in death or serious injury.

Warning: Greater care may be necessary after a long drive over salted or gritted roads or if driving in heavy rain, through water or a vehicle wash. Brake action may be delayed and increased braking pressure may be required.

Warning: Aston Martin recommends that the brake fluid is replaced before and after the vehicle is used for high-performance driving such as a track day. Failure to do so may result in greatly reduced brake performance. Contact your Aston Martin Dealer.

If a vacuum boost or a brake circuit fails, the footbrake will still operate, but with greater pedal pressure, increased pedal travel and longer stopping distances. Contact your Aston Martin Dealer. The high-performance brake system used on this vehicle is designed to provide optimal braking under all operating conditions. However, an inherent characteristic of this braking system is some brake noise. Certain combinations of speed, braking forces and ambient conditions may also cause the brakes to squeal.

Brake Throttle Override
If the throttle and brake pedals are both pressed at the same time for over 3 seconds, the engine will restrict available torque. Normal functionality will return when the throttle pedal is pressed without the brake pedal.

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

Safety
It is always the driver’s responsibility to drive safely with regard to driving conditions and according to the law. The fact that a vehicle is equipped with ABS must never let the driver be tempted into taking risks which could affect his or her safety or that of other road users. The addition of ABS cannot overcome the consequences of trying to stop in too short a distance, cornering at too high a speed, or aquaplaning (where the tyres are prevented from contacting the road surface by a layer of water). The driver should always take road conditions into account. A slippery road surface always requires more braking distance for a given speed, even with ABS. Stopping distances can increase with ABS compared to locked wheels on slushy snow, gravel, sand or certain heavily corrugated or ridged warning sections of road surfaces.

If any braking system malfunctions, have the braking and ABS systems checked immediately by your Aston Martin Dealer. The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) helps prevent the road wheels from locking and causing the vehicle to skid during emergency braking. This also assists the driver in maintaining steering and directional stability. If the braking force exceeds the tyre grip in an emergency braking situation, the ABS operates to prevent the wheels from locking. A pulsating effect is felt through the brake pedal when this happens. This is a normal effect of the ABS operating.

ABS Settings
The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) will change its operation depending on ESP and Drive mode.

Stage One
When ESP is set to ON, the ABS is tuned to give a level of vehicle performance, control and stability under braking that will cover everyday driving situations and weather (dry, wet, ice and snow).

Stage Two
When ESP is set to Sport+ or OFF, the ABS is tuned to allow more experienced drivers to drive closer to the limits of the vehicle’s ability and enjoy its natural balance in a track environment. When the ABS is set to stage two, the ABS is applied in the following ways:

  • The Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) increases the braking force to the rear of the vehicle. This is done by allowing a greater level of slip at the rear axle and a quicker increase in pressure in the rear brakes. Cornering agility will be enhanced when braking, but the driver will experience more vibration through the brake pedal.
  • The ABS will allow more slip when the tyres are at a higher working temperature, such as when the vehicle is driven on a track. The driver will have more control over brake performance before the ABS is activated.
  • Braking performance is given greater priority over stability in areas with different friction surfaces. Increased steering input is required to maintain the direction of travel, but optimum vehicle deceleration is achieved.
  • The ABS provides a more aggressive pressure increase for situations where a wheel can become temporarily unloaded, such as in track sections featuring fast, tight corners, strong camber or high-speed crests.

IfAston Martin DBX 2021 Brake Warnings User Manual1 ,Aston Martin DBX 2021 Brake Warnings User Manual2 and Aston Martin DBX 2021 Brake Warnings User Manual3come ON while driving both ABS and ESP have a fault. The brake system will continue to operate but without assistance from either ABS or ESP. Both front and rear wheels may lock under heavy braking which can result in longer braking distances in an emergency stop.

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Brake Warnings User Manual4A message will also show in the right instrument cluster window with further information.
Drive on carefully and have the braking and ABS systems checked immediately by an Aston Martin Dealer.

Active Brake Assist

Warning: Active Brake Assist is an aid only and does not replace the need for driver awareness. It is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of their surroundings. Always make sure that there is a suitable braking distance for your vehicle.
Active Brake Assist is used to reduce the risk of an accidental collision with a pedestrian or another vehicle. This is achieved by giving visual and audible warnings when a collision risk is detected, and, if necessary, will assist in the application of the brakes. If the driver does not react to the risk of a collision, the system can also automatically apply the brakes.

Warning: If the driver does not react, and the vehicle is required to apply the brakes, this will happen for a maximum of 1.8 seconds. The purpose of the system to gain the driver’s attention to control the vehicle, and reduce the risk of rear impact from vehicles behind.

System Limitations
Active Brake Assist may not function correctly in the below conditions:

  • The area around the multi-purpose camera is dirty, damaged or otherwise covered.
  • Glare into the multi purpose camera from the sun or other road users’ headlamps.
  • A pedestrian’s outline is concealed, or the system cannot determine a pedestrian’s outline due the background.
  • There is lots of background radar reflection such as a multi-storey car park.
  • The vehicle in front is either too narrow, such as a motorbike or the vehicle in front is offset and not following the same driving line.
  • A vehicle moves very quickly into range of the radar.

Brake Pad Conditioning

Warning: For track use or high-speed driving, new brake pads must be correctly conditioned. Failure to correctly condition the pads may result in greatly reduced brake performance. Contact your Aston Martin Dealer for further information.
When new brake pads are installed the brake discs and pads need to be conditioned. During this time, brake performance will be reduced.
Avoid excessive brakings, such as hard stops from high speed and steep descents, for the first few hundred miles or kilometres1 after new brake pads are installed

Park Brake

Park Brake Operation

Warning: If the brake system warning symbol is ON or flashing, do not rely on the park brake to hold the vehicle stationary. Contact your Aston Martin Dealer.
When the vehicle is stationary, push the park brake switch (A) in and release. TheAston Martin DBX 2021 Brake Warnings User Manual1 warning symbol in the instrument cluster will come on when the parking brake is applied. The stop lamps will not come ON. The parking brake operates on the rear wheels of the vehicle.

Caution: Secure parking of the vehicle is dependent on being on a hard and stable surface. The rear wheels must be on a suitable surface to prevent vehicle movement.
The ignition control must on to release the parking brake. First, apply pressure to the foot brake then pull on the park brake switch and release. The symbol will go off to show the parking brake has been released.

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Tyre Pressure Monitoring User Manual

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Tyre Pressure Monitoring User Manual

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Warning: Driving on a significantly under-inflated tyre causes the tyre to overheat and can lead to tyre failure. Over-inflation and under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tyre tread life, and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping ability.

Warning: The TPMS is not a substitute for correct tyre maintenance, and it is the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tyre pressures, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to set the TPMS tyre pressure indicator symbol to ON. A Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is installed as a safety feature. This system will display the tyre pressures for each tyre and provide warnings if pressure is below a specified pressure for each tyre.

Each tyre should be checked at least once every two weeks when cold, and inflated to the pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer (Refer to ’Wheel and Tyre Information’, page 11.15)or on the tyre pressure label. If your vehicle has tyres of a different size than the size indicated on the tyre pressure label, you should determine the proper tyre pressure for those tyres.

Tyre Pressure Display

The TPMS display is shown in the instrument cluster. Use the direction buttons on the right side of the steering wheel to navigate to Service and select Tyre Pressure. Tyre pressures will be displayed in the instrument cluster after the vehicle has been driven for a few minutes. If an under-inflated tyre is detected by the system, the TPMS symbol is solidly illuminated.

The message centre will also display one of the below messages:

  • Please Rectify Tyre Pressures: At least one tyre has too low a pressure. Tyre pressures should be checked and corrected when possible.
  • Check Tyre(s): At least one tyre has significantly low pressure. The tyre pressures must be checked and corrected as soon as possible.
  • Warning Tyre Defect: At least one tyre has lost pressure very suddenly. The vehicle should be stopped as safely as possible and the tyres checked.

Once the message has been acknowledged an image of the vehicle will be displayed in the message centre showing which tyre(s) have low or high air pressure and the current tyre pressure. When the tyre pressure indicator comes ON, stop and check your tyres as soon as possible, and inflate or deflate them to the correct pressure.

Warning: When a tyre pressure warning is detected, reduce the vehicle speed to a safe level. Stop in a safe and convenient place and inspect the tyre(s).
The tyre pressures may be displayed in the wrong positions for a short time if the wheels have been moved on the vehicle. After a few minutes of driving, the TPMS will calibrate and the tyre pressures are displayed in the correct positions.

TPMS Reset

All warning messages are erased and warning lamps go out when the TPMS is reset. The TPMS will use the new tyre pressure values as reference values.

To reset the TPMS tyre pressure values:

  1. Use the right scroll wheel on the steering wheel to navigate to Service.
  2. Navigate to Tyre Pressure.
  3. Select Use Current Pressures as New Reference Values.
  4. The TPMS will now reset. After a short period of driving, the system checks if the tyre pressures are within the specified range. The new tyre pressures are then used as the new reference values.

TPMS Malfunction Warning

If the TPMS malfunctions due to a system failure will flash for approximately one minute or tyre transmitter fault, and then remain lit. A malfunction of the tyre pressure monitor can take up to ten minutes to be shown. The TPMS warning lamp will go out when the fault has been resolved and after several minutes of driving.

A TPMS malfunction can be caused by:

  • A defective TPMS sensor.
  • Wheels and tires installed that do not have TPMS sensors.
  • Unapproved items interfering with the TPMS.
  • TPMS system or software fault.
  1. If the system shows there is a TPMS fault, continue at a reduced speed of 30mph / 48 km/h maximum. Contact your Aston Martin Dealer.

Radio Equipment Directive

Hereby, Schrader Electronics Ltd., declares that this TPMS is in compliance with the essential requirements and other provisions of Directive 1999/5/EC. The declaration of conformity may be consulted at emcteam@schrader.co.uk

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Active Park Assist User Manual

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Active Park Assist User Manual

Active Park Assist (Optional)

Active Park Assist is available when the suspension is set to GT or Sport mode. The system is not recommended for use while Access mode is enabled. Active Park Assist measures the road on both sides of the vehicle to locate a parking space the vehicle will fit in. The active park system will also provide vehicle steering to assist in parking in spaces.

Important Safety Information
Active Park Assist is only an aid. It is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of their surroundings when parking or reversing. Make sure that no persons, animals or objects are in the vehicle’s path. Active Park Assist is not available if PDC is deactivated or not functioning.

Warning: While parking, the vehicle can move into areas of oncoming traffic. This can cause a collision with other road users. Stop the vehicle or cancel the Active Park Assist parking procedure if necessary.

Caution: Parking spaces that are partially occupied may be measured incorrectly. Examples of partially occupied parking spaces can be trailer drawbars, overgrown parking spaces, or incorrect measurements due to heavy rain or snow. Care should be taken to make sure the space is clear.

Caution: Active Park Assist will not be able to detect objects above the sensor height range when a parking space is measured. These objects will not be included when the parking procedure is calculated. Active Park Assist should not be used around objects such as overhanging loads or tail sections of goods vehicles. Active Park Assist can be canceled at any time by manually controlling the steering wheel. Active Park Assist may also display parking spaces that are not suitable such as prohibited parking zones, driveways, or unsuitable road surfaces. Active Park Assist should only be used for roads that are parallel or at right angles to the direction of travel and on the same road level. The system should not be used for measuring spaces on bends or on raised footpaths.

Parking Space Detection

Active Park Assist operates at speeds of up to approximately 22 mph (35 km/h). Activate the Active Park Assist feature with the Aston Martin DBX 2021 Driving with a Trailer User Manual 08button.

At speeds below 18 mph (30 km/h),Aston Martin DBX 2021 Driving with a Trailer User Manual 09 will show in the instrument cluster. When a parking space has been detected that the vehicle will fit into, a left or right arrow will show which side of the vehicle the space is on.

Active Parking Assist will only detect parking spaces that are:

  • parallel to the direction of travel and at least 1.5 m (5 ft) wide and 1 m (3.3ft) longer than your vehicle.
  • At right angles to the direction of travel and at least 1 m wider than your vehicle.
  • Active Park Assist is not able to measure the depth of a

parking space if it is at right angles to the vehicle. You must judge if your vehicle will fit in the parking space. The system automatically determines if the parking space is parallel or at right angles to the direction of travel. A parking space is displayed while you are driving past it, until you are approximately 15 m (50 ft) away from it.

Active Park Assist does not assist with parking in right angle space if:

  • Two parking spaces are located directly next to each other
  • The parking space is directly next to a low obstacle such as a low kern
  • Forward-parking
  • Active Park Assist will only display parking spaces on the front-passenger side as standard.

Parking spaces on the driver’s side will be displayed if the turn signal on the driver’s side is on. The indicator must remain on, until Active Park Assist is confirmed.

Parking with Active Park Assist
(Active Park Assist is not available in all drive modes) When a parking space has been found and is shown in the instrument cluster, stop the vehicle and select R (Reverse).

  • Start Park Assist will show in the instrument cluster display. Press OK on the steering wheel to confirm. To cancel press
    Aston Martin DBX 2021 Instrument Display User Manual 25or continue to drive away from the space.
  • Release the steering wheel and slowly reverse the vehicle, being ready to brake at all times. Reversing at a speed above 6 mph (10 km/h) will cancel Active Park Assist.

Additional maneuvering may be required in tight parking spaces. If it is necessary for the vehicle to move forward, a message will show in the right message window. Select D (Drive) while the vehicle is stationary. Active Parking Assist will then counter-steer to change the approach angle.

360° Camera System

Caution: The camera system can show a distorted or incorrect view of obstacles or not at all. Obstacles will not be shown under, or in very close proximity to, the front or rear bumpers. Care should also be taken in the blind spots close to the door mirrors, tailgate or transitional areas between cameras in the top-down view.

Caution: Objects that are not at ground level can appear further away than they are. Care should be taken when maneuvering around items such as tow bars and vehicle bumpers. The 360° camera system uses four cameras (front, rear, and both door mirrors) to give a complete view of the vehicle’s immediate surroundings. The system can then be used in a split-screen view to suit different driving scenarios.

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Rear Cross Traffic Warning User Manual2 Rear Traffic Cross Warning is not available if the vehicle is parked on an incline or if PDC is deactivated.
The Rear Cross Traffic Warning (RCTW) uses the blind spot assist radar modules to alert the driver when a moving vehicle or bicycle approaches behind your vehicle1.

When reverse gear is selected and the reverse camera and parking sensors are active, the RCTW system searches for moving objects within 3 meters (10 ft) of your vehicle. If an object or vehicle is detected, an audible warning is given and a warning is shown on the instrument cluster. The camera display in the infotainment screen will also automatically change to a full-screen rear view to give the driver a view of the collision risk. A warning will also be shown in the direction of the detected vehicle. If the driver does not intervene and there is still the risk of a collision, then the vehicle will automatically apply the brakes2.
RCTW can be set to on or off with the Manoeuver Assist setting (Refer to ’Assistance’, page 10.3)

Drive Away Assist

Warning: Drive Away Assist is an aid only. The system cannot always clearly detect obstructions. The system may limit the vehicle speed without warning or fail to limit vehicle speed depending on the situation. It always is the driver’s responsibility to be aware of their surroundings when parking or reversing.
Aston Martin DBX 2021 Rear Cross Traffic Warning User Manual2 Drive Away Assist is not available if PDC is deactivated or not functioning or if the vehicle is parked on an incline.
Drive Away Assist (DAA) helps reduce the risk of an impact when you first drive away by detecting objects or vehicles in front of the vehicle. If an obstruction is detected the vehicle’s speed will be reduced to 2 km/h (1 mph). If a severe enough obstruction is detected, LIM will also be shown in the infotainment screen.
DAA is active when the transmission is in R (reverse) or D (Drive) and if the detected obstruction is less than 1 meter (3 ft) away. DAA can be set to on or off with the Manoeuver Assist setting (Refer to ’Assistance’, page 10.3)

Emergency Call System

ECall SOS
(UK and European Vehicles Only)

The eCall system provides the user with an emergency call system. The system uses the GPS satellite network to provide an accurate location for emergency services to find the site of an accident. In both automatic and manual activation, once a voice connection is established the red LED in the SOS button will flash.

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Rear Cross Traffic Warning User Manual2 When the ignition is set to on, the red LED will light on the SOS button while the system is performing a self-test. It will be replaced by a green LED within one minute if there are no errors. If the red LED is on, contact your Aston Martin dealer.

Manual Operation
The system can also be activated manually by pressing and holding the SOS button (A) for 2 to 4 seconds. This can be used in the event of an accident that was not severe enough to deploy airbags but still requires assistance from the emergency services. The system can also be used if you witness and want to report a severe accident but are not actually involved in the incident.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Rear Cross Traffic Warning User Manual1

Once a call has started, only the operator can end the call. An emergency call should only be made if you or others are in need of rescue. Do not make an emergency call in the event of a breakdown or a similar non-emergency situation.

Automatic Operation
The eCall system is directly connected to the Occupant Restraint Control (ORC) system. If the ORC system detects a crash scenario and deploys the airbags, the eCall system will be operated automatically.

When this happens:

  • A 2-way voice call is automatically opened with an eCall operator.
  • An automated text message is sent to the Operating Centre to advise that an accident has occurred and will provide information such as location.
    In the event that the eCall operator attempts to contact you and there is no answer, such as if the vehicle occupants are unconscious, the emergency services will be automatically dispatched to your location.

Malfunction Warning
In the unlikely event of a fault with the eCall system, the red LED in the SOS button will stay as constantly red. If the LED is constantly red or does not show constant green when the system is not in use, contact your Aston Martin Dealer for assistance.

ERA-GLONASS

(Russia Only)
The ERA-GLONASS system provides the user with an emergency call system. This system can be used to reduce the time the emergency services take to arrive at an accident, by making them aware an accident has occurred and providing information such as location. The system used the GLONASS satellite network to provide an accurate location for emergency services to find the site of an accident. An emergency call can be made automatically or manually.

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Introduction User Manual

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Introduction User Manual

Introduction

Due to the sophistication of the various systems and the specialized equipment required to maintain this vehicle, owner maintenance should be restricted to the routine procedures described in this chapter. If you think that this vehicle is not functioning correctly, please contact an Aston Martin Dealer for the vehicle to be professionally checked.

Parts and Lubricants
Aston Martin recommends that when performing a servicing task, the recommended lubricants (Refer to ’Fluid Specifications’, page 11.12) and parts are used.

Caution:
If oils or lubricants are used which do not meet the required fluid specification, vehicle components may experience excessive wear, a build-up of sludge and deposits or cause increased pollution. If it is evident to Aston Martin that use of products other than those which are recommended by the manufacturer have caused damage to the vehicle or engine, Aston Martin may refuse to authorise the repair of such damage under the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty.

Electronic Fuel Injection

Warning: If the fuel system is allowed to run dry, the fuel pump(s) can be permanently damaged.

Warning: Any modifications or additions to the fuel system not specifically designed by Aston Martin are prohibited. If installed, they can cause damage to the fuel system which, in some circumstances, could cause fire. All Service Action and Safety Recall Actions must be undertaken by an Aston Martin Dealer.
The electronic fuel injection system requires specialist equipment and test facilities to set up and maintain so that the vehicle gives maximum performance, coupled with economy, reliability and safe vehicle emissions. You are, therefore, strongly advised to entrust all service work to an Aston Martin Dealer.

Restraint Systems
Aston Martin recommend that the inflatable restraint systems (airbags) and seat belt components installed to this vehicle are replaced at 10 year intervals from the date of manufacture on the certification label.

Servicing Precautions

To avoid personal injury, the following safety precautions must be observed when the bonnet is open and the engine is operating or the ignition is on.

Warning: Protect yourself against dangerous substances.

Warning: Keep hands, hair, tools, items of clothing and jewellery clear of all drive belts, pulleys and operating mechanisms. The cooling fan may operate even though the engine is not operating.

Warning: Avoid skin contact with all exhaust system and engine components, engine fluids and escaping steam. They may be hot and can cause scalding or burns.

Warning: Any loose objects, such as ties, should be removed before working on a vehicle. Any jeweler should also be removed before working on a vehicle, especially work on the electrical system.

Warning: Catalytic converters convert harmful exhaust gasses into less noxious substances and so reduce environmental pollution. They operate at high temperatures and continue to radiate a considerable amount of heat after the ignition has been set to off.

Warning: Do not breathe exhaust fumes. Exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas, which is colourless and odourless and can cause unconsciousness and may be fatal. Never start or leave the engine running in an enclosed, unventilated area.

Warning: Do not work beneath the vehicle with a vehicle lifting jack as the only support. Place suitable stands under the vehicle.

Warning: Keep children and pets clear of the vehicle. Do not let anyone inside the vehicle unless specifically working to your instructions.

Warning: Whenever possible, work in the engine compartment with the engine cool, the ignition off and the vehicle battery disconnected.

Warning: Petrol is highly flammable and, in confined spaces, is also explosive and toxic. In the event of spillage, set the engine to off. Do not use a flame or spark near fuel or fuel vapour. Do not smoke near fuel or fuel vapour. Do not inhale fuel vapour or fumes.

Dangerous Substances

Warning: Dangerous substances should be kept out of reach of children.

Warning: Many liquids and other substances used in motor vehicles are poisonous and should under no circumstances be consumed and should, so far as possible, be kept from contact with the skin. These substances include battery electrolyte, antifreeze, oil, brake and clutch fluid, petrol, windscreen washer additives, lubricants, refrigerant and various adhesives.

Warning: Particular care should be taken to avoid unnecessary contact with used engine oil. Always read carefully the instructions printed on labels or stamped on components and follow them carefully. Such instructions are included for reasons of your health and personal safety. Never disregard them.

Engine Oils

Warning:
Prolonged and repeated contact with used engine oils can cause serious skin disorders, including dermatitis and cancer. Avoid excessive contact, wash thoroughly after contact. Keep out of reach of children. When your oil is changed, be sure that it is done by an experienced person. In addition, observe all laws regarding the disposal of waste oil and toxic fluids.

Protect The Environment

Warning:
It is illegal to pollute drains, water courses, or soil. Use authorised waste disposal facilities, including civic amenity sites and garages providing facilities for receipt of used oil. If in doubt, contact your local authority for advice.

Owner Maintenance Checks

In the interests of safety and reliability, it is advisable to carry out the following checks at the intervals suggested (more frequently if your vehicle is heavily used or operating in adverse conditions), and always before starting on a long journey. Refer to the following pages for advice and check procedures.

Before Use Check:

  • Operation of lamps, horn, indicators, wipers, washers and warning symbols
  • Check there is sufficient fuel for the intended journey, particularly at night and before entering motorways
  • Operation of the seat belts
  • Operation of the brakes
  • Check for fluid deposits underneath the vehicle. Weekly Checks (daily if driving large distances or touring)
  • Tyre condition

Fluid Checks and Capacities

Engine Oil Level

Warning: Engine oil or components may be hot and could cause severe burns.

Caution: Running the engine with engine oil below the lower mark or above the upper mark can cause serious engine damage.

Caution: This vehicle’s warranty may be invalidated if damage is caused by the use of incorrect engine oil. Low quality or obsolete oils do NOT give the protection required by modern, high-performance engines.

Caution: Failure to use engine oil that meets the required specification can cause excessive engine wear, a build up of sludge and deposits, and increased pollution. It could also lead to engine failure (Refer to ’Fluid Specifications’, page 11.12).

Engine Oil Level Sensing
This vehicle has an electronic engine Oil Level Sensing (OLS) system which records the engine oil level every vehicle start if the vehicle has been left for 4 or more hours, if the vehicle is on level ground, and if it is within a pre-set oil temperature range.

Caution:
Running the engine with engine oil below the minimum level can cause serious engine damage. The system may not record an oil level if the engine oil temperature is low. If the engine oil level is approaching the minimum mark, a message will be shown in the instrument cluster along with a warning symbol. A code will also be stored in the engine management system. The engine oil level should be checked and filled to the required level engine oil as soon as possible. The message will clear when the oil level is filled with a least 1 liter to the required level and the OLS system has performed a valid check of the oil level.

Wheels and Tyres

Wheel and Tyre Information

Aston Martin DBX 2021 Chassis Systems User Manual 02

Tyre Loading
Tyres installed to this vehicle shall have a maximum load rating not less than 1060 kg (2337 lbs) front and 1180 kg (2601 lbs) rear, or a load index of 110 (front) and 114 (rear).

Tyre Pressures
Make sure that correct tyre pressures are carefully maintained. Road holding, steering, braking and tyre wear are especially vulnerable to incorrect tyre pressures.
Check tyre pressures regularly and before starting any journey, and adjust accordingly.
Tyre pressures increase slightly when the tyres are hot. For an accurate reading, tyre pressures should be checked when the tyres are cold. After adjusting the tyre pressures, make sure that the valve caps are securely replaced to provide an additional air seal and to prevent the ingress of dirt.

Wheel Bolt Torque

Tyre Information

Tyres of the correct type, manufacturer and dimensions, with correct cold inflation pressures are an integral part of every vehicle’s design. Regular maintenance of tyres contributes not only to safety but to the designed function of the vehicle. Road holding, steering and braking are especially vulnerable to incorrectly pressurised, badly installed or worn tyres. Tyres of the correct size and type, but made by different manufacturers can have widely varying characteristics.

Damage
Because of the high performance potential of this vehicle, Aston Martin strongly recommend replacement of any damaged or worn tyre.
Tyres should be examined at regular intervals for wear and damage. Inspect the tyre treads and sidewalls for damage, i.e. bulges in the tread or the sidewalls, cracks in the tread groove and separation in the tread or the sidewalls. If damage is observed or suspected have the tyre inspected by a tyre professional.
Stones or other objects which have become lodged in the tyre treads should be carefully removed.

Flat Spots
It is a characteristic of high performance tyres that temporary ’flat spots’ may develop if the vehicle is left standing in high or low ambient temperatures for any length of time.
These ’flat spots’ will manifest themselves as minor vibrations when the vehicle is first driven from cold. As the tyres warm up to operating temperature, normal tyre shape should be restored and the vibrations cease. If vibrations persist, consult your Aston Martin Dealer.

These ’flat spots’ will manifest themselves as minor vibrations when the vehicle is first driven from cold. As the tyres warm up to operating temperature, normal tyre shape should be restored and the vibrations cease. If vibrations persist, consult your Aston Martin Dealer.

Running-In New Tyres

When new tyres have been installed, speed should be limited, particularly during the first 80 km or so of driving. Fast cornering, hard braking, and harsh acceleration should also be avoided during this period.

Tread Wear Marks

Tread wear marks (A) are incorporated into the construction of all tyres. These marks are integral moulded ribs spaced at regular intervals around the circumference of the tyre and extend across the full width of the tread, in all primary grooves.Aston Martin DBX 2021 Chassis Systems User Manual 03

When a tyre has worn causing one or more of the marks to be flush with the outer face of the tread the tyre has reached its wear limit. It then becomes illegal in certain countries and must be replaced.

Summer Tyres

Summer tyres should be used if the highest level of dynamic performance is required and are best used for temperatures greater than 10°C. If the vehicle is used in temperatures below this for extended periods of time, then All-Season or Winter tyres should be considered. The tyres are also of different sizes on the front and rear axles, therefore complete wheels cannot be swapped between axles.

Vehicle Care

Washing

Warning: Washing and polishing agents containing silicone should not be applied to glass. This will reduce the efficiency of the windscreen wipers, causing smears which will reduce visibility, particularly during darkness and in the rain.

Caution: Commercially operated automatic vehicle washes, jet washes and power operated mops are not recommended. The detergents used can contain certain chemicals which may, over time, be detrimental to some exterior parts of the vehicle. Prolonged usage of automatic vehicle washes and power operated mops will also cause fine scratches in the paint surface.
Aston Martin are able to supply a range of products to clean and protect your vehicle. Contact you Aston Martin Dealer for further information.
During the winter months, it is advisable to wash the vehicle more frequently, paying particular attention to the underside to combat the detrimental effects of any salt and sand contamination picked up from treated roads.
To delay the onset of corrosion developing on the brake components, Aston Martin recommend that after washing this vehicle, the vehicle should be driven a short distance to make sure that all water and cleaning products have dried off.

In comparison to conventional paints with a gloss or metallic surface, satin paint work must be cared for slightly differently. In order to avoid damage to the satin paint work, make sure that the cleaning and care points below are followed:

  1. Only use cleaning products recommended by Aston Martin. Abrasive cleaning products will change the satin appearance of the paint and must not be used.
  2. Do not polish or wax the paintwork. This can lead to glossing of the paintwork.
  3. Do not wash the car in an automatic car wash. This will avoid particles such as sand and dust, from damaging the painted surface.
  4. Only use a soft sponge to clean the vehicle. Do not use abrasive cleaning tools.
  5. Remove insect remains, bird droppings, resins, tar spots, fuels and oil immediately. Avoid strong rubbing while cleaning the vehicle.
  6. Any stickers applied to the paint work will leave a mark when removed.
  7. Repairs to the paint work must be completed by an Aston Martin category A or B body shop.

Off-Road Use
If this vehicle has been used to drive in off road environments additional cleaning may be required, such as under the body to make sure all mud, salt and other contaminants are removed. This will help protect the vehicle paintwork, under-body and external components such as the parking sensors and trailer electrical connection points.

Alternator

Caution: Do not use a high pressure stream such as a pressure washer to rinse the alternator. This can cause internal damage to the alternator.
If the alternator is submerged in muddy water, it should be rinsed with a hose or similar to remove any mud. Mud and salt residue can corrode and damage the internal windings. The vehicle should then be driven to dry the alternator.

Underbody Protection
The underbody of this vehicle is protected with sacrificial protective panels. Consult your dealer for inspection and repair as necessary, especially after sustained off-road use or if the underside of the vehicle been damaged.

Upholstery, Trim, Carpets and Seats

Warning: Fumes from cleaning solvents may be dangerous in confined spaces. Make sure that the vehicle is well ventilated and follow the manufacturer’s printed instructions when using these products.

Caution: Certain types of clothing, such as denim and vegetable tanned leather, are prone to ‘dye transfer’. This can cause discolouration in the leather. Make sure that the affected areas are cleaned and re-protected as soon as possible.
The seats and soft trimmed components of this vehicle are covered in natural leather hide. In general, this natural leather upholstery requires little attention. The seats should be brushed with a soft brush from time to time and may be cleaned occasionally with a cloth damped in soap and water.
Do not use detergents, quick cleansers or furniture polishes. These products may initially give an impressive result, but their use will lead to rapid deterioration of the leather and will invalidate the warranty.
Several times a year, a leather conditioner or preservative should be used. Appropriate care materials are obtainable from your Aston Martin Dealer.
Use a soft microfibre cloth to remove dust and loose dirt from open pore wood trim panels.

Alcantara®1 roof linings and other soft trimmed areas may be brushed with a soft brush. Stains from water based substances such as coffee, tea or soft drinks should be cleaned as soon as possible with mild soap and water.
Consult your Aston Martin Dealer for instructions on the removal of more difficult stains such as oil, grease or ballpoint ink.
Carpets should be cleaned regularly with a vacuum cleaner. Any stains or grease marks should be removed with a good quality solvent suitable for use on carpets.

Care and Maintenance of Seat Belts

Caution: Do not allow seat belts to be retracted until they are completely dry.
To make sure that the restraint webbings are in correct working order, regularly check the seat belts. Look for fraying, cuts, burns and similar problems. Make sure that the latches and buckles operate correctly. If a seat belt is not in good condition or is not working correctly, consult your Aston Martin Dealer.
Any seat belt that has been worn during a serious collision should be replaced by an Aston Martin Dealer.
To clean the seat belts, use mild soap and water; do not use bleach, solvents or dyes, as they can weaken the material. Allow the seat belts to dry thoroughly before use.

Vehicle Jack Safety

In addition to the general safety guidelines on the previous page, also take note of the below safety information when using the vehicle jack.

Warning: Only use the vehicle jack on the approved lifting points, make sure the head of the jack is correctly seated before lifting the vehicle. Incorrect use of the jack can cause the jack to slip and the vehicle to drop, which can cause injury, death or damage the vehicle. The vehicle jack is only intended to be used when the spare wheel needs to be changed and not as a support. Never work under the vehicle when it is only supported by the vehicle jack.
Aston Martin DBX 2021 Spare Wheel User Manual1Warning: Use the supplied wheel chocks to prevent the vehicle wheels from rolling when the vehicle is lifted.

To Change The Wheel

Warning: The wheel and tyre assemblies for this vehicle are heavy. You should have the help of a second person when lifting and carrying the wheels.
Park off the road, clear of all traffic and on as level, solid ground as possible. Switch on the hazard warning lights and, where legally required, display the warning triangle.

  1. Remove the spare wheel and the vehicle toolkit from under the luggage compartment floor.
  2. Set the drive mode to Terrain+.
    Aston Martin DBX 2021 Spare Wheel User Manual1Make sure all doors and tailgate are closed before the vehicle is lifted.
  3. Chock the front and rear of the wheel diagonally opposite to the wheel being replaced.
  4. Fully remove one of the wheel bolts.
    Aston Martin DBX 2021 Spare Wheel User Manual1If a locking wheel bolt is installed, this should be removed first.
  5. Install the wheel alignment bolt where the wheel bolt was removed.
    Aston Martin DBX 2021 Spare Wheel User Manual 1
  6. Release the remainder of the wheels bolts ½ to 1 turn (counter-clockwise).
  7. Wind the jack handle so that the jack head is near the height of the jacking points.
  8. Put the jack into position below the jacking point.
    Aston Martin DBX 2021 Spare Wheel User Manual 2
  9. Use the wheel brace to rotate to jack handle to lift the head of the jack to the jacking point. Make sure the jack head is correctly located into the jacking point.
  10. Use the jack to lift the vehicle until the wheel is clear of the ground, and allow some additional clearance for the replacement wheel to be installed.
    Warning: Do not raise the jack to its maximum height.
    This can cause the vehicle to become unstable and there is a risk it may fall off the jack. There is a risk of damage to the vehicle, serious injury or death.
  11. Remove the wheel bolts and the wheel.
    Caution: Do not place the wheel face down. This will help prevent damage to the wheel face.
  12. Make sure the temporary-use spare tyre is inflated with the supplied air compressor to the correct pressure before use. The temporary-use spare tyre is inflated to 4.2 Bar (61 Psi).
  13. Install the spare wheel to the vehicle.
  14. Install four of the wheel bolts.
    Make sure the wheel evenly contacts the wheel hub.
  15. Remove the wheel alignment bolt.
  16.  Install and tighten the last wheel bolt.
  17. Lower the vehicle.
    Tighten the five wheel bolts to the correct torque value in the sequence shown on the next page.
    Warning: If the wheel brace is used to tighten the wheel bolts, have the wheel bolt torque checked as soon as possible. If you do not, there is a risk the wheel bolts may come loose.

Driving With A Spare Wheel

Warning: Do not drive at speeds of more than 80 km/h (50 mph) with a temporary spare wheel installed. Avoid hard acceleration and high speed cornering. The temporary spare wheel is not designed to operate at high speeds and can fail which can cause injury or death.

Warning: Do not set the ESP to off with a temporary spare wheel installed. The handling characteristics of the vehicle will be changed and it is recommended to use ESP to help retain control of the vehicle in sudden maneuvers.

The temporary spare wheel is for emergency use only and the original tyre should be replaced as soon as possible.

Deflating the Spare Wheel
When the original tyre has been replaced or repaired, the spare wheel must be deflated before it can be returned to the spare wheel storage area. To deflate the spare wheel, release the valve on the tyre.

Wheel Bolt Torque

Caution: You must use an applicable plastic-sleeved socket to remove, install, and tighten the wheel bolts. This will help to prevent damage to the surface of the wheel.

Reasonable additional expenses shall be covered for one or a combination of the following:

  • Alternative replacement vehicle costs to a maximum of two working days in your Country and up to 14 days outside your Country.
  • Airfares (business class ticket).
  • Rail fares (first-class ticket).
  • Local taxi fares.
  • Any other transport equivalent to first-class rail fares.

Replacement Vehicle
If following a Breakdown Incident:

  • Your Vehicle is immobilized.
  • Roadside repairs are unsuccessful.

Roadside Assistance
The Service Provider’s Agent vehicle should promptly arrive with you after your call has been placed. You may also book an appointment for a convenient time. Aston Martin Emergency Assistance shall provide you with updates on its estimated time of arrival via your preferred communication method. If following a Breakdown Incident in an area of coverage, your journey cannot be completed, and where the Vehicle cannot be repaired at the roadside, Aston Martin Emergency Assistance shall organize recovery of the Vehicle, including any luggage contained in the Vehicle at the time. Your Vehicle and luggage shall be transported to the nearest Aston Martin Dealer, without distance or financial limitation. If the Vehicle cannot be repaired at the roadside or at your home address within a reasonable time period (45 minutes), the Service Provider will take you, the Vehicle and your passengers to the nearest Aston Martin Dealer. In the event that you (or your passengers) need to keep an important appointment, you will be taken there before the disabled Vehicle is transported to its required destination. Should the Breakdown Incident occur outside of workshop hours, Aston Martin Emergency Assistance shall arrange for secure storage of the Vehicle until the next working day. The Vehicle shall arrive at the Dealer by midday on the next day. If the nearest Dealer, to where the eligible Vehicle has been towed, is able to carry out the repairs at its premises, then the Vehicle will be repaired there. Once the Vehicle is at a Dealership for repair, Aston Martin Emergency Assistance will keep in contact with the Dealer to follow the progress of the repair, and if necessary, arrange any extension of a replacement vehicle with Aston Martin Customer Service.
