Jeep Liberty: Towing With HSA - Hill Start Assist (HSA) - Electronic Brake Control System - Starting And Operating - Jeep Liberty Owner's ManualJeep Liberty: Towing With HSA

HSA will provide assistance during acceleration on an incline while towing a trailer.

WARNING!
• If you use a trailer brake controller with your trailer, the trailer brakes may be activated and deactivated with the brake switch. If so, there may not be enough brake pressure to hold both the vehicle and the trailer on a hill when the brake pedal is released. In order to avoid rolling down an incline while resuming acceleration, manually activate the trailer brake or apply more vehicle brake pressure prior to releasing the brake pedal.

• HSA is not a parking brake. Always apply the parking brake fully when leaving your vehicle.

Also, be certain to leave the transmission in PARK.

• Failure to follow these warnings can result in a collision or serious personal injury.
