Putting it in Neutral doesn't work?
Like you @23dash, I reverse my La Prima up my sloping drive. This morning I've tried to find a solution to your problem, but not found anything better than your method.|I can't get my head around how to freewheel down a slope... I have a sloping drive which the car is reversed into. When it comes to moving into the street I want to freewheel until the car is on the level. Currently if I put the car in D and gently press the accelerator, the car shoots forwards as hill-hold is released. My current workaround is to put the car in reverse and gently press the accelerator to release hill hold, and lo and behold, the car freewheels forward !!
The reason I’m doing this is that if I select D and squeeze the accelerator (to release hill hold), the car jolts forwards. I find this disconcerting and uncontrolled, especially as the pavement (with the potential for pedestrians) is just 2m from the starting point.What mystifies me though is why you're seeking to freewheel down the slope?
Yep, same in all drive modes. It’s the hill-hold which prevents the car easing forward under control of the brake pedal.Understood, is it the same in Normal, Range and Sherpa? I find Normal best for slow manoeuvring.
Mine doesn't do it noticeably, but my drive isn't very steep.
This bug is the most common of all of them and has been reported multiple times in the Facebook Group. It goes away of its own accord. Did you pass a speed sign on your journey? Next time you pass a speed sign it could reset. Also 6475 might fix it...A new bug. Short 3 mile drive this morning to buy a paper - all working normally. When I start the car to return and drive off the traffic sign readings start flashing. All units are correct ie mph and distance in miles, but the traffic sign speed indicator is reading the signs in mph and converting them to mph. Never seen this before. Searching all the settings, including those in maps, I can find no way of changing this. Tried the usual stop/start car several times to no avail. Checked to see if any sign of an OTA update but nothing obvious. Only option is to turn off the traffic sign indicator or suffer flashing every time the speed limit changes.
Only difference I can think of is that it was the first really cold night so taking car out of garage possibly into the cold; have always had many more "resets" in the cold weather.
Has anyone seen this before or am I missing a setting somewhere?
Car is in for first service in 8 days time so maybe........6475 or instrument panel update will correct?
