The answer is no it can't be disabled or programmed out by vaux. As I rung 3 dealers today, to see if it could be done. For the amount of times it comes on. I doubt it would cause any excessive break wear.Hi,
Does anyone know if the Hill Start Assist can be disabled on the J 2012 SRi.
I don't have the electronic paring break and the HSA seems to be wearing my pads out quicker.
Logic would say there are three ways to approach disabling the feature:Vauxhall said:Hill Start Assist
The hill start assist allows the driver to launch his vehicle without a roll back while he is moving his foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal. The EBCM calculates the brake pressure, which is needed to hold the vehicle on an incline and locks that pressure for a certain time by commanding the appropriate solenoid valves ON and OFF when the brake pedal is released. Hill start assist is activated when the EBCM determines that the driver wishes to move his vehicle up-hill, either backwards or forwards.
The following inputs are used for hill start assist feature:
• Brake switch
• Brake pressure
• Longitudinal acceleration
• Engine torque
• Reverse gear information
• Clutch switch
• Accelerator pedal position
• Vehicle speed
