Automatic release function by accelerator pedal

The electronic parking brake system has an automatic release function. The parking brake will be automatically released by depressing the accelerator pedal. However, the automatic release function does not operate under the following conditions.

● Any door (other than the trunk lid or rear gate) is open.

● The drivers seatbelt is not fastened. If the parking brake is automatically released, the brake system warning light and the indicator on the parking brake switch turn off.

NOTE

Even if you have applied the parking brake by pressing the parking brake switch, the parking brake will be automatically released when the accelerator pedal is depressed.
