Hill Start Assist (off with it)

F.Y.I .If you want to turn off the HSA it's on page 378 in your owners manual. I just turn mine off. Just thought you should know... Now if I only can get those fog lights to stay on when the brights is on.

If the JK has any similarity to my TJ, there should be a relay you can modify, but I can't help you with that...

I turned my HSA off the first day I got my jeep. But I can see were it would be good for someone that is learing to drive a stick.

I turned mine off after fighting with the idea of leaving it. It's dangerous in my opinion. I want to go when I let off my clutch and sometimes that extra second or two when you forget that your JK holds you can be a big problem. After dealing with this feature for a few months I felt it was only harmful and a danger. Next to the seat belt chime it was the best thing I rid my JK of.


Not to start a seatbelt war but there not always needed.

I don't really understand these threads, purely because I have no problem driving off from a standstill when the HSA has been engaged - I seem to be having an entirely different experience.
It may be I take my foot off the brake and hold the car on the clutch in anticipation of the light turning green?

Never had a problem without HSA in all my previous cars, but I appreciate its existence in the Jeep. I think it's good though that these features can actually be disabled though, rather than people being forced to live with them!

I think that the HSA is a very good thing for people that want it. But I turned mine off becouse I'v drove a standerd for my whole life and it just dont fell right if I dont have to fight it rolling back on me.

Someone posted a good tip with HSA...it will hold the brake pressure that is applied (by the driver) when you are stopped. So, when you come to a stop only use as much brake as you need to keep the car from rolling (don't stomp on the brake). It will make the start smoother. Or...just turn it off if that is your preference.

So there is no benefit to starting your forward, up hill travel from a stop as apposed to starting your forward, uphill travel while rolling backwards?

This does not make sense to me.

I think my 11 auto has this HSA also. I can turn it on or off in the driver personal perfrance display on the dash via the steering wheel control. I have left it on, but it seems to not do much, but it will hold me on my steep driveway. Kind of weird.

I like the HSA and see no drawback to it, according to the way I drive.
