The indicator light lights up on the instrument panel.

The vehicle is actively held at a stop.

For information on the HOLD function:

  • Please see the chapter "HOLD FUNCTION: DRIVE-OFF ASSISTANT, STANDSTILL MANAGEMENT" on page 206.

Information

  1. Depending on the traffic flow, e.g. slow moving traffic, stopping is initiated by a slow crawling phase, which brings the vehicle to a standstill.
  2. When adaptive cruise control is operating normally or when the HOLD function is active, the brake pedal may feel different and you may hear hydraulic noises.
    This behavior is normal for the system. It is not a fault.
