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.

My emergency brakes set themselves all the time even when I'm parking in my garage. Most of the time I have too disengage them myself as the Palacade does not do it auto.car I personally do not like the Car doing it on it's own, but I really do not like to put the Car in reverse and it will not go until I turn the brakes off. I'm taking it back for the second time this weekend. The last time they said they could not find anything, so I stopped in their parking lot and presto the emergency break set itself and when I got home and stopped the car presto again.. .

The e-brake will unset itself automatically if you apply gas, as long as your seatbelt is on.

So strange to me that it requires a seatbelt to be on prior to auto disengaging the parking brake. Yet if you don't have it set, it let's you do everything (albeit with an annoying chime).

And you can also disengage the parking brake with the actual button if you don't have your seatbelt on. It just won't do it automatically.

It’s a real pain to have to have your seatbelt on for it to disengage. I always wear my seatbelt too but sometimes when pulling through electronic gates you have to hurry and don’t have time to put on the seatbelt before the gate starts closing! I sure wish there was a way to change the requirement for the seatbelt.

As Eric mentioned in the earlier post above, you don't have to have your seatbelt on to use the button to disengage. You must have your foot on the brake however.

Can confirm this too

Spent the weekend consolidating 2 storage units to 1. Multiple times through electric gates sans seat belt, movement of car with tailgate open and no seatbelt etc.

First day at the storage unit I was incredulous that I could not get the vehicle moving without the seatbelt and/or closing the tailgate....90 degrees and sweating like a pig....just needed to move the vehicle a few feet. I was cursing like a sailor.

Second day at the storage unit, I was a Palisade pro. One finger on the start button then immediately the other finger on the e brake button and all the modern and very useful safety measures were safely bypassed for the short term/distance movements.

Thanks, it happens when I stop at the entrance of my gate, a slight incline, put the car in park and get out to get my mail. I practiced today on getting it to disengage without having the seat belt on (for the short drive inside our property). It seems I had to press the parking brake button twice to get it to work though. Thanks for the advice!

Hello

There is any settings to activate or deactivate this feature? My wife has a 2020 sonata and hers activate the emergency brake all the time when you park on the driveway. My Palisade doesn't, I thought did not come with that feature but reading your comments apparently it does but mine don't do it.

Is your driveway on any type of incline? I think I also read somewhere that the auto hold feature needs to be engaged as well. I routinely turn mine on everytime I start up.
