Towing With HSA

HSA will provide assistance when starting on a grade when pulling a trailer.

WARNING!
• If you use a trailer brake controller with your trailer, your trailer brakes may be activated and deactivated with the brake switch. If so, when the brake pedal is released there may not be enough brake pressure to hold the vehicle and trailer on a hill and this could cause a collision with another vehicle or object behind you. In order to avoid rolling down the hill while resuming acceleration, manually activate the trailer brake prior to releasing the brake pedal. Always remember the driver is responsible for braking the vehicle.

• HSA is not a parking brake. Always apply the parking brake fully when leaving your vehicle.

Also, be certain to leave the transmission in PARK.

• Failure to follow these warnings may cause the vehicle to roll down the incline and could collide with another vehicle, object or person, and cause serious or fatal injury. Always remember to use the parking brake while parking on a hill and that the driver is responsible for braking the vehicle.

NOTE: The HSA system may also be turned on and off if the vehicle is equipped with the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC). Refer to Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.
