Lincoln Nautilus: Auto Hold

How Does Auto Hold Work

Auto Hold applies the brakes to hold your vehicle after you stop it and release the brake pedal. This can help when waiting on a hill or in traffic.

Switching Auto Hold On and Off

WARNING: The system does not replace the parking brake. When you leave your vehicle, always apply the parking brake.

WARNING: You must remain in your vehicle when the system turns on. At all times, you are responsible for controlling your vehicle, supervising the system and intervening, if required. Failure to take care may result in the loss of control of your vehicle, serious personal injury or death.

WARNING: The system turns off if there is a malfunction or if you excessively rev the engine.

Select the drive assist menu in the center display screen to switch auto hold on and off.

Note: You can only switch the system on after you close the driver door, fasten your seatbelt and start the engine.

Note: The system remembers the last setting when you start your vehicle.

Make sure you switch the system off before towing with your vehicle or before using an automatic car wash.

Using Auto Hold

  1. Bring your vehicle to a complete stop. The auto hold active indicator illuminates in the information display.
  2. Release the brake pedal. The system holds your vehicle at a standstill. The auto hold active indicator remains illuminated in the information display.
  3. Pull away in the normal manner. The system releases the brakes and the auto hold active indicator switches off.

Note: The system only activates if you apply enough brake pressure on the brake pedal.

Note: Under certain conditions, the system could apply the electric parking brake. The brake system warning lamp illuminates. The electric parking brake releases when you press the accelerator pedal. See Automatically Releasing the Electric Parking Brake.

Note: The system switches off if you shift into reverse (R) and press the brake pedal.

There could be actions that can cause the auto hold system not to work when the following occur:

  • When you use active park assist.
  • Your vehicle is in stay in neutral mode.
  • The driver door is open.
  • You have not fastened your seatbelt.
  • You shift into reverse (R) before the system is active.
