Descent control feature

What's the trick with the descent-control feature. I was coming down a pretty steep grade and pushed the button on the console and the light on the button blinked and nothing happened. Is this normal for the light to blink and then go off. Thanks in advance.

Re: Descent control feature

Your owners manual explains this
Page 466.

The instrument cluster has a HDC icon and a HDC switch which has an LED which offers feedback to the driver about the state HDC is in.

• The cluster icon and switch lamp will illuminate and remain on solid when HDC is enabled or activated. This is the normal operating condition for HDC.

• The cluster icon and switch lamp will flash for several seconds then extinguish when the driver presses the HDC switch but enable conditions are not met.

• The cluster icon and switch lamp will flash for several seconds then extinguish when HDC deactivates due to excess speed.

• The cluster icon and switch lamp will flash when HDC deactivates due to overheated brakes. The flashing will stop and HDC will activate again once the brakes have cooled sufficiently.
