Automatic handbrake on automatic gearbox
Posted 30 October 2019 - 11:27 AM
Stop/start stops the engine, I press the ignition button..turns the ignition off and puts it in Park. That’s where I turn on the handbrake.
There’s not really any other way to do it.
My concern is that it’ll flatten the battery. My previous car was a 2010 manual Astra, didn’t have stop/start . I engaged the handbrake with the engine ON every time.
Seems the manual focus turns the electric handbrake on automatically.
Not the auto.

I have a 1ltr auto and usually do the same, although sometimes it automatically applies the parking break when I switch the engine off e.g. when parked on a hill. When stopped at lights, etc I tend to rely on the auto hold feature.
If auto hold has activated when you stop, then the parking brake will apply automatically when the ignition is switched off
