Hi I am new to the forum and I’ve only had my limited Hybrid for less than 500 miles. I heard there was a way that when I put it in park the parking brake automatically goes on, does anyone know how to said that?

The parking brake automatically engages if the car senses you putting it into Park while on a slope. Also, when you put the car in gear, the parking brake disengages on its own (so you don’t accidentally drive with it on).

HTH!

Oh OK that explains it because it was a couple times that I knew a part that it just came on and then there were other times that I parked and it didn’t come on so I thought it was some kind of setting thank you very much

Does anyone know if it is possible to make the automatic parking brake automatically turn on every time you put the car into park? (2022 Tucson Limited PHEV)
Yes -sort of - if your PHEV is like my non hybrid. If "Auto Hold" is on when you turn off the engine the brake will engage.

Correct - yes - ours is the same way - I just wish there was a way in settings to make that a permanent adjustment. Just like you can modify little things such as number of times your blinker flashes for example (3, 5, etc) when turning.

I like the stock settings. I don't need to set the parking brake when I'm on my flat garage floor so I don't want to put wear and tear on the mechanism when I park in the garage. Also, the DRLs extinguish when the parking brake is set. Sometimes you may want to have those on when parked.

All a matter of preference - but even on a slight hill, over time, wouldn't it be bad for the transmission (shifting from park to drive) - as occasionally when parked on a hill or similar when going from Park to Drive you can hear a bang coming from the transmission which isn't the best (from what I've heard).

Good point - did not realize this - I would have thought the daytime running lights (DRL) would turn on and stay on while the car is on.

Whenever I park on a hill I always set the parking brake first and then put the car in park (or first gear if a standard) and turn the wheel toward or away from the curb, (away facing uphill, toward facing downhill). That minimizes the chances of the parking pawl binding on an automatic and prevents excess stress on the clutch in a standard. The wheels pointing toward or away from the curb prevents runaway if the systems fail. I know these are standard practices, but there are many people who have never heard of any of these steps.

The DRL's won't go off with the EPB on if you have lights set to auto. Her suggestion is there be a setting which would allow the user to choose, so she makes a good idea.

Yes. Set the parking brake in park. Don't turn it off. Just start the car and go and it will automatically come off, but it will automatically come back on every time you put the car in park until you turn it off first. Then it will default back to off unless you're parked on an incline. Then it will set itself but just on inclines again.

I tried that several times and that function does not work on my car. I don't find it anywhere in the manual. The only time the manual says the parking brake will go on automatically is when you power down the car with the auto hold function on. I'm not saying your car doesn't work that way but mine doesn't.

Oops! I swear I thought it was working like this. I just went out and rechecked ours. I was wrong. It must have been parked on a slight incline when I thought that the parking brake setting stayed on.

There is so much tech on this car, it seems I find something new every day. I thought for a minute you discovered an extra, sensible feature. I discovered the thing about parking on a hill by accident. I didn't read it in the manual till much later. Your post allowed me to discover that the parking brake will set automatically if you leave the auto hold on, which I wasn't aware of. Thanks for that.

I have the TechPack fitted to my Tuscon. This an extra in the UK, my reason for having it fitted was to leave my car in my garage when I am away for long periods, because there is only room for the car I cannot get out of the car once I drive it in.
My problem is the autopark is fine to drive it in however when I return after a few weeks the brakes seem to be seized on and the car will only move very slightly before stopping. We need to crawl in through the rear of the car and drive it out once we have released the hand brake.
My question is can I switch of the automatically brake setting when using the auto park ?

Are you holding the button down on the remote?
The emergency brake will only engage if you have “Auto Hold” turned on or if your garage is on an incline.

The rear sensor might be picking something up and applying the brakes. You aren't by any chance standing anywhere towards the rear of the car when bringing the car out? Or maybe it is deep enough into the gagage to pick up a signal? Try backing it in with the feature.
