Not personally had issues with the handbrake but I know if not enough revs or car thinks it will stall it will not release. Also I have had experience where the grit they like to coat the roads with during the winter causing brakes to stick on or the grit get caught in the mechanism, then said grit either dissolves or breaks up and everything works as normal. Glad to hear its back to normal though.

If the auto handbrake is stuck, wouldnt pushing the handbrake switch/lever down release it instead?
:D Happy to be buying another one.

Mine plays up every now and then.
If you find it won't release press on the foot brake, the pedal will feel hard.
Drive off as normal.

I,ve found this works every time.

Hi PWVWT2017

I took delivery of a new Tiguan SE Nav this morning and am having the exact issues. Auto hold will simply not release. Did your issue fix itself or did the AA do something to get it working? My previous car was a Tiguan and had the same function so I'm definitely not just being a tool!

Thanks, Luke

I had this issue of handbrake not releasing once on my Golf. I just jabbed the brake and then the accelerater a few times and eventually it released. Only happened once. I love the electronic brake and auto hold. Great system - set and forget!

My advice is once the system is working, never ever touch the brake lever or auto hold button again. I'm sure touching it messes with its sequence / set up.

So what are people finding the best way to get around the sticking when it happens?

Hi Luke.

It seemed to resolve itself, having annoyingly not gone wrong even once for the AA guy! He agreed something must have gone wrong though having described the circumstances to him.

I don't tend to have Auto-Hold on much now, since he said if you can do without it it is better for the clutch. I can see why that would be and unless there was loads of hills on the journey I don't bother really.
