PostPosted: Wed Oct 16, 2013 8:20 pm    Post subject: Question Parking Brake turns itself on on my 2014 Impala 2LTZ Reply with quote

Hi--I have an annoying and very intermittent issue with my new 2014 Impala 2LTZ (odometer = 1925). In the 9 weeks I've owned it, there has been about 3 times (the most recent was tonight) where the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB) has turned itself on after I put the car in Park and turned the engine off. Once I get back in the car, and turn on the engine, I immediately notice the "Park" light on the dashboard stays on. I immediately turn off the Parking Brake by depressing the break petal, and then while the break petal is depressed, pushing in the Parking Brake button on the dashboard. I suggest that everyone with a 2014 Impala get used to how to turn on/off the parking break--since I knew how to turn it on/off there wasn't a major problem! I do have the push button (keyless) ignition; I wonder if that may have something to do with the problem. Since the break petal has to be depressed in combination with the "Engine Start/Stop" button to start/stop the engine, I'm thinking this could have something to do with it (i.e. how hard I'm pressing the break petal).

Like I said, this has only happened about 3 times in 9 weeks of owning the car--and I know I am *not* purposely enabling the parking brake. I know the exact date and time of the last occurrence on 10/16; I've been told this should help the dealer diagnose the problem. Has anyone heard of this sort of problem?

Unfortunately we don't have many members with 2014 model year Impalas, so help might be hard to come by. Please follow up with any additional info you might find in the future on this issue to help others out later.

I always set the parking brake on every car I have ever owned.

That said, I have the same car as you with push button start/stop and I would think have a fairly standard procedure for setting the brake.

Pull in the spot, park vehicle in park with foot still on brake pedal and then activate the parking brake.

It has never set itself and I dont recall anything mentioned about it in the manual but I could have missed something. Just went through the PDF manual again and still dont see anything obvious other than automatic release.

Maybe have OnStar on the line when starting the car for them to monitor system?

It says in the manual, page 9-31,

The vehicle may automatically apply
the EPB in some situations when
the vehicle is not moving. This is
normal, and is done to periodically
check the correct operation of the
EPB system.

Thanks for this information. I must have missed it when I read the manual. I'm glad to know that it is normal behavior of the Electronic Parking Brake in the 2014 Impala to turn itself on from time to time.

At least it doesn't turn itself on while driving. Shocked

There's a thread in the 2014 general discussion forum about it.

Don't worry, we got it covered. Laughing

I think this would be a really cool function for a manual transmission, but for an automatic, is it something that is really needed?

idk never been to cali and its flat in del but from what i understand after a trans gets worn down the park doesnt work as well and will just let go when parked on a hill. this is why they teach you to turn your tires towards the curb if parking on a hill in driver safety class.

It's mostly flat where I am at, but at least if any one tries to tow her, they'll need to out the rollers for the rear tires to move it.. right?
