Yes, I believe you're right. It's listed in the scenarios when you turn the car off when not in park, when the door is opened at low speed, and a few more. I do remember seeing it in the owners manual.I thought the brake was applied automatically even if you don't switch it on upon turning off the engine. Could swear I saw that somewhere in the book. (Just took a look, I don't see that in a quick search but I'm pretty sure I saw it when I first got the car.)
So I think that I set off this parking brake sensor when I turned the car off when I’m gear. I thought that it was in park. As soon as I was driving about a few miles it showed an error. Do I have to take it in to get fixed or can I just clear this issue?Here are the full list of conditions that will engage the parking brake:
In the following situations, the parking brake automatically operates:
• When the vehicle stops more than 10 minutes while ACC with LSF is activated.
• When the driver’s seat belt is unfastened while your vehicle is stopped automatically by ACC with LSF.
• When the engine is turned off while ACC with LSF is activated.
• When the vehicle stops with the automatic brake hold system activated for more than 10 minutes.
• When the driver’s seat belt is unfastened while your vehicle is stopped and brake hold is applied.
• When the engine is turned off while brake hold is applied.
• When there is a problem with the Brake Hold System.
