Automatic release

1. Start the engine.

NOTE
• For safety reasons, the parking brake is only released automatically if the engine is running and the driver is wearing a seat belt.
• The electric parking brake will be released immediately when the accelerator pedal is pressed and the gear selector is in position D or R.

2. Fasten the seat belt.

3. Move the gear selector to position D or R and press the accelerator pedal. The parking brake will release when the vehicle begins to move.

Heavy load uphill

A heavy load, such as a trailer, can cause the vehicle to roll backward when the parking brake is released automatically on a steep incline. To help avoid this:

1. Keep the electric parking brake lever pushed in with the left hand while shifting into Drive with the right.

2. While pressing the throttle pedal to pull away, release the parking brake lever only after the vehicle begins to move.
