Parking brake auto-release

5208 Views 13 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  Loboc
If you try to drive off with the parking brake engaged, it will auto-release itself. Was wondering if this is a known feature e.g. do any of you do this on a regular (daily) basis or do you always manually release the parking brake before shifting into D and driving off?

Standard on all electronic parking brakes AFAIK.
I read in the Ford Fusion owner manual that the parking brake can release by itself:
"Automaric release - drive away release
Note: The driver's door must be closed and the driver's safety belt must be fastened before this feature will operate".

So the driver must be secured before releasing the electric parking brake automatically in "D".
