Anybody use Hold 'n Go?
 
Hey All

I'm slowly getting thru the Owner's Manual and am reading about the "comfort feature" called "Hold 'n Go"...it allows you to remove your foot from the brake petal while stopped in drive. You have to "enable it via the personalization settings in the radio or instrument cluster".

Has anybody done it? I don't even know if I have it, and couldn't see where to enable it.

Cheers,
Mike

I don't have my TH yet, but I downloaded the UG & OM from jeep.com and Hold 'n Go is not in either one. The OM I downloaded is the Third Edition created 9/30/2013 & the UG is the 3rd Edition modified 10/11/2013. The version can be found at the end (last page) of the pdf or book. See if you have an older version. It seems like they took that out.

Texas TH, you must be freaking about the delivery date changes. I can tell you that in a sick way, i miss the waiting and the incessant checking of MOTS (as I said, sick).

It is so worth the wait, though.

xmike5000, It is like a consuming sickness, the waiting, the checking...a lot like having a baby! I saw that you have version 1 of the manual on another forum.

Naw, I 'm gonna go get it now. The manual is a hassle with all of the warnings and cautions! I wish there was a non-legal version or one that put all of that crap in one spot so you could read it uninterrupted.

Again, enjoy the wait-seriously. Think of it as savoring the aroma of an amazing meal that is sitting in front of you just waiting to be consumed!

Note on manual, I found a pdf version I have on my iphone I used to search for what I'm looking for.

Hold and go... It's sublet. You don't notice except when you stop on an incline. Like pulling into my parking at my condo. I have to stop and wait for the gate. When I take my foot off brake and don't put it on gas it will stay still for several seconds then will start to idle uphill (v6 love ;)

TT. Sorry about your wait. I'd be in the same boat if I hadn't found what I wanted and canceled my order.

Good luck. I can tell you, when it arrives, it's a pretty big day

If it is what I think it is, I've used it. I was in stop and go traffic and turned it on. It's a bit unnerving when it brakes and when it starts up depending on what the car in front of you is doing. I have not got the hang of it 100% though. I keep hitting the brake and canceling it out.

That would scare the Jeepers out me. I don't know if I am ready to trust the electronics with the brake.
I have the Tech group which seems to be mostly passive unless I screw up. The self parking is a no way for now. I can still park faster and better than the computer. I can just see myself explaining to the insurance company how the car took control and hit both cars on each side of mine. I am yet to try the adaptive cruise control. I heard that it will brake the car for you. So it should be interesting........................
This KL is interesting and a challenge to learn.

Where is it in the settings then? It was removed from the owners manual, no longer in the current edition. Mine definitely doesn't have it turned on if it is an included feature.
You aren't thinking about the auto parking brake are you?

I emailed Jeep about Hold 'n Go, so maybe they can clear it up. According to the older version of the manual (before Hold 'n Go was removed from it), Hold 'n Go & Safehold seem to be two different things. I'll post their response when I get it.
