Re: first use of hill descent control .... problem?

Yes, it's a typo. I've tried it several times.

Re: first use of hill descent control .... problem?

For the 2014 is this the same? I figured it would work in normal 4 hi mode as well. Can anyone please confirm?

From our friend the owner's manual:

Hill Descent Control (HDC) Four-Wheel Drive
Models With MP3023 Two-Speed Transfer Case
Only
HDC maintains vehicle speed while descending hills
during off-road driving situations and is available in
4WD LOW range only. To enable HDC, press the HDC
switch.

There you go again.

The stuff in the owner's manual is supposed to be secret. Otherwise, people would be able to read it themselves. You take away all the mystique.

Re: first use of hill descent control .... problem?

How does HDC differ from just being in 1st gear in 4xLO? I take it it's even slower? Is it basically actively working the brakes for you, and thus the noise?

Re: first use of hill descent control .... problem?

If you read the previous three posts, and get out your secret decoder ring, you will find the answer.
