Ford Explorer: Brakes / Auto Hold

Ford Explorer 2020-2022 Owners Manual / Brakes / Auto Hold

WARNING: The system does not replace the parking brake. When you leave your vehicle, always apply the parking brake.

WARNING: You must remain in your vehicle when the system turns on. At all times, you are responsible for controlling your vehicle, supervising the system and intervening, if required. Failure to take care may result in the loss of control of your vehicle, serious personal injury or death.

WARNING: The system turns off if there is a malfunction or if you excessively rev the engine.

The system is designed to apply the brakes to hold your vehicle at a standstill after you stop your vehicle and release the brake pedal. This could be beneficial in certain situations, for example when waiting on a hill or in traffic.

Switching Auto Hold On and Off

Press the button on the center console. The button illuminates when you switch the system on.

Note: You can only switch the system on after you close the driver door, fasten your seatbelt and start the engine.

Note: The system remembers the last setting when you start your vehicle.

Make sure you switch the system off before towing with your vehicle or before using an automatic car wash.

Using Auto Hold

  1. Use the brakes to bring your vehicle to a complete stop. The auto hold active indicator illuminates in the information display.
  2. Release the brake pedal. The system holds your vehicle at a standstill. The auto hold active indicator remains illuminated in the information display.

    Note: The system only activates if you apply enough brake pressure. If your vehicle is on a steep slope, you might need to press the brake pedal harder before the system activates.

    Note: Under certain conditions, the system could apply the electric parking brake. The brake system warning lamp illuminates. The electric parking brake releases when you press the accelerator pedal. See Electric Parking Brake.

    Note: If auto-start-stop turns off the engine, auto hold remains active.
