Hey everyone - one thing I've noticed about the Palisade is that it seems to sometimes engage the electronic parking brake automatically in certain circumstances. Primarily, it seems like it does it when it's on an incline. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm assuming this is how it was designed, and it makes sense. The one thing that has seemed inconsistent to me is if it automatically disengages the parking brake when changing into Reverse or Drive. It seems like sometimes disengages automatically, and sometimes doesn't. Does anyone have a better understanding of this and would like share some thoughts on how this works? Thanks for your help!

I have noticed the same thing. On an incline it automatically sets it (which is awesome!). As far as disengaging, there are some rules for that and I believe one of them is that you have to have your seat belt on and obviously the car started. I think if you are doing that, then when you hit the accelerator it will automatically disengage. Try it without a seatbelt on and it gives you a morning on the instrument cluster.

Yes, it’s automatic on inclines, but I have always had it automatically disengage once I put the car in reverse or drive. I religiously buckle my seatbelt before driving, so maybe that’s why it’s always worked for me 🤷🏻‍♀️

Yeah, I think the situations where I noticed it didn't turn on was when I was just pulling the car out of my garage into my driveway or something. I might not have put my seatbelt on in that case.

I wonder why they don't just always automatically turn on and off the parking brake. The manual even says that you should always use it when parking, not just when on an incline.

So far my automatic electronic parking break will only disengage if my seat belt is on, the great is R or D, and i press the gas pedal. Simply shifting to R or D, even with seat belt on, does NOT disengage on my Limited AWD. The press of the pedal to disengage results in a bit of a jerky movement to start, so be cautious with that in tight spaces.

I experienced the jerk to disengage parking brake the other day too. I was in a really rough material parking lot so I thought it had to do with that. It did make me nervous bc it was a tight and busy parking lot of rocks with log barriers before you get back on normal pavement (kind of hard to explain this). I expect it won’t normally be that dicey for me, but good to be aware of, so I don’t go launching back into something when I hit the gas in reverse after an incline.

I know you can manually disengage the electronic parking break by pressing the EPB switch by your left knee while depressing the brake pedal. But does this work if you're still on an incline and the EPB had previously engaged automatically? I'll give it a try tonight. If the manual switch press works to disengage, that should solve the problem of the jerky start. We'll see...

Not sure about the jerky issue ... my Pal-AWD is on order.

However, during a test drive I noticed the E-Parking Brake auto-engaged while parking on a slight incline.
This is an excellent safety feature given the new E-transmission in these vehicles.

Remember the issue Chysler-Jeep had a few years ago w their E-transmission selector?

I am not expecting any issues like that from the Palisade, but it is wise to ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake with an E-transmission (whether on a hill or not)!

The jerky movement is due to the fact that a reasonable amount of gas pedal pressure is needed to disengage the EPB; once it disengages, the ongoing press of the gas pedal causes a bit of a lurch that can be difficult to fully predict. I'm trying to not overstate the severity; it's really only an issue/inconvenience in a tight space.

It doesn't take much of an incline/decline to auto-engage the EPB when shifting to park. I appreciate the feature for peace of mind. If you are manually disengaging the EPB with the left knee switch, you just need pressure on the brake pedal; the vehicle doesn't need to be in R or D, you can shift after disengaging if you'd like.
