Try to auto release hand-brake like you usually do (clutch + accelerator) but with no gear engaged  :|

I think that this bug was fixed in the tiguan facelift, don't know|

Daughter came round today for daddy to fit custom number plates; anyway she has a 2016 golf manual (which has the EPB) and whilst moving it this thread came to mind. Tried several variations and proved it's simply the clutch switch that releases it. In gear, not touching gear stick or accelerator, clutch half down, it won't start: clutch all the way to the floor, it will start. Not changing anything, but bringing the clutch up, having moved the pedal less than an inch up the EPB releases. This is repeatable.

 

So, if you come to a stop, engage EPB, and only press clutch down past the bite point to engage gear it won't release the EPB. You need to push the clutch to the floor. I'm not saying this is your problem, it could still be something else causing your issue, just my observations.

Just to let you know, a 2016 golf has a newer system of EPB than a Tiguan (unless its the new tiguan), on the new mk7 golfs you don't even need to have the drivers seat belt on for the autohold to be active either

Chrisdut, mea culpa, I've got cross threaded! Got it in my head this related to the latest tigs, not the older ones. Beagle, that surprised me also, got so used to the tig (and Passat before it) insisting I was belted before letting go the EPB.

If I fiddle the brake when I stop the car creeps in D this means the clutch is dragging. Whilst it may not be a wear problem I put it in N at lights but have to keep my foot on the brake as the autohold disengages in N

I have a recently acquired 2014 2.0TDI .

Still learning.

The Auto Hold is an ongoing source of aggravation with each explanation muddying the waters a bit!

I would like to put Auto Hold into "Always on" mode and see how it goes from there.

My problem is that I can't find it in my settings menu.

Is this because it isn't relevant to my particular model or have I managed to erase it?

If so what are the consequences of pressing "Factory Settings"?

Somewhere between of little consequence and disastrous, I expect.

Thanks for any thoughts.

FWIW my 2013 model did not have a reset in any menu, it was actually simpler than that, switch auto hold ON and leave it switched ON and it stays that way (after restart). Switch it OFF and it stays OFF in the same way, so completely simple.

Be aware I’m posting this reply from my phone so can’t see where you are in this world but assuming (because you have a diesel) you have a Euro model rather then North American, the above should apply ...... I hope lol.

Many things are configurable, like driving off and auto release without seatbelt

My 2010 Sport MFD has a hidden menu, hold the menu rocker switch for several seconds and it opens another menu. My Auto Hold was always off on starting the car. In the menu I found an option to check a box to keep it on permanently, and it actually works.

There are some differences between original and facelift models, this obviously being one of them. My 2015, behaves as others have mentioned with 2013 and 2014, all facelift models. I also have come unstuck on the mk2 forum in the early days as they've changed the way many things work on the mk2.

 

On the facelift autohold simply retains the state you set it at, set it on, it stays forever on, set it off, it stays forever off.

Wish US Tigs got auto hold in 2013. It was removed at the facelift interval and isn't plug and play.. have to run 2 wires from the fuse panel on constant and one switched and 2 wires to the ABS, and a firmware flash to earlier software is needed to get it functional.

I had it on my Passat. Very rarely used it, even with a manual transmission.

I had a loaner with it and with my bad hip loved using it in traffic so I didn't have to hold the brake all the time. Getting to be a 3 hour trip now to make my trips 60 miles south to Seattle for Appts. Occasionally i can blow thru in an hour but if it's a mid day appt. You sit in traffic. It stinks.

So on my Tiguan the following needs to be true

 

* Doors Shut

* Seat belt on

* Engage Reverse or 1st for the direction of travel

* Raise the clutch pedal about half way, the electronic parking brake will stay on.

* With the clutch half way, blip the throttle pedal and the epb will go off.

 

Essentially the Tiguan needs a blip of the throttle pedal to disengage. We also have a Golf and that just needs the clutch to be raised with seat belt on and doors shut.
