Hi,

In my norwegian manual the "Down Hill Brake Assistant" (translated the best I could, not sure what the english word is for this function) is described two different places, and it seems to me to be two different explanations, page 145 and 192. The first one seems to describe this as a function which uses the s tronic gearbox for braking down hills in normal speed up to 80 km/h, and the other description (same button) describes this to be an assistant for climbing down steep hills in low speed (below 30 km/h). Anyone know something about this, and how to use it.


Rgds,
Roger

the less than 30 mph downhill is the button you press in the dashboard and slowly goes down hill without your intervention

Rgf,

I have a 2.0 TDi Manual and my book lists the "Downhill Assist Function". In short the specs are:

The system can be switched on at speeds below 60Km/h, although the system is not activated unless the speed being driven is between 4 and 30km/h and there is an incline gradient of 10 percent or greater. The system works both forwards and in reverse. The notes on the S-tronic geabox say it can maintain speeds down to 4km/h whereas the manual can only maintain 9km/h minimum unless the clutch pedal is pressed.

Hi, thanks for your reply, but have you been able to found the description in two different places in your manual?

In the first desription (p.145 in my manual) it seems that it is possible to use it to reduce speed downhill (up to 80 km/h). If got this right it dosn't use the brakes at this speed, only shift down, after touching the brake pedal, and it will be turned off when the gas pedal is touched again.

Rgds,
Roger

I will check the manual later as it is still in the car. Currently, I am using the DVD manual which I have loaded on my computer.
