Re: Electric Handbrake will not auto release on a steep incline - my drive
Definitely not being too gentle with it. I ended up thrashing it the first time it happened, and still no release. it has stalled a couple of times doing this.
I just tried to test the angle of the incline that the brake wont release, and the problem is the angle is not the same each time. I wanted to be able to say to the dealer, "on an incline of 12 degrees the hand brake will not release" but it varies it seems.
I can manually release the hand brake, but I don't want to ignore something that could potentially be serious.
