Hill start assist is part of the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system.

The hill start assist feature activates when the vehicle is pulling away from a standstill to ascend a hill. When the brake pedal is released, hill start assist smoothly releases the brake pressure, allowing the vehicle to pull away without rolling backward.

If a hill start assist fault is detected, the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) OFF warning lamp illuminates. The instrument panel displays the warning message Stability Control Not Available - Drive With Care. See DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL (DSC) OFF (AMBER).
