With autobrake don't you just have to drive off?
I mean isn't that the whole idea?
Just put in in drive and go and the brakes release. Perhaps you are making the problem by stabbing the throttle where just driving normally would do?
I wouldn’t stab the throttle, before moving off. It will confuse the system. Push throttle pedal as a normal car and it will sense that you have moved the pedal and will release the brakes, if you stab it, it senses that you pushed the pedal then released it quickly and might put the brakes on again!
Perhaps I have something else going on. It had the auto hold button, it's always off. It doesn't do the "auto hold" when simply coming to a stop and taking off again. The issue is when I first start it, park brake off, put it in gear, it is still held. Go to drive off normally, loads up slightly then releases the brakes by itself.
Stop/start has already been turned off in vcds 👍 Can't stand it.
277k km. It's not a trans issue, it's the abs module maintaining pressure in the brakes, the trans tries to move the vehicle but can't until the brake pressure is released. Would really love to just completely disable the function in the abs module.
And if you really want to get technical, it also depends on temp but given your flag, I will just jump to the assumption that you're not below 10deg C currently... But if you are, we can discuss that scenario.
Unless you provide more details about your conditions and what has or has not been serviced on the vehicle, I would strongly suggest replacing the gearbox lifetime fluid, even if only as a routine maintenance item.
I have only recently purchased it, and the trans fluid is one of the things that will be getting replaced. I don't know what going on, otherwise I wouldn't have asked, however I do know it's not transmission, the brakes creak as it's loaded up, suspension moves, and the brake pedal is hard due to the residual pressure. A second later when it releases, suspension unloads and off it goes. If it was being held in the trans, it wouldn't be attempting to move.
Perhaps I have gotten my terms confused, and it the hill hold system that's doing this,and not auto hold.
You forgot to disclose all those details previously..... So yes, now that we know that part of the story, it could certainly be sticky calipers, etc. Rip all the brakes off and look at what's going on....
