How To Use The Mercedes-Benz Brake Hold Function

June 17th, 2019 by

If you spend a great deal of time stuck in traffic during rush hour on the Long Island Expressway, stopped at red lights driving through Huntington, or stopped at the Huntington Long Island Railroad crossing, it can get very tire-some keeping your foot on the brake to keep your car stopped. However, Mercedes-Benz vehicles have a feature designed to help with situations like this. With the Brake Hold Function, offered in select Mercedes-Benz vehicles, you can keep your vehicle stopped without having to keep your foot on the brake the entire time.


To use the HOLD Function, simply depress the brake pedal as normal until you come to a stop. If you wish to activate the feature, depress the pedal even further until you see the word HOLD appear in the instrument cluster. Once you see that word pop up, you can safely remove your foot from the brake while the car keeps the brakes engaged and the brake lights illuminated. When you’re ready to start moving again, all you have to do is depress the accelerator pedal and the feature will be turned off. It is important to note however, that the Brake hold function does not work as a parking brake. If you need to park the vehicle, you should shift the vehicle into park and utilize the parking brake.
