electronic hand break
#1
I've got a 2020 K9 van if it was to brake down or not start etc and needed towing is there a way of taking the electronic hand brake off to tow or bump start etc i have read that other models of cars/vans have a over ridding system on the brake pedal i'm just curious and nothing to do today.

There's a procedure described in the manual. From memory:

1. Ignition on
2. Shifter to neutral (holding the brake)
3. Hold brake button down for a few seconds.

There's no difference. Just checked the manual, there is the procedure laid out but it's more complex than the one I used:

1. Engine on
2. Parking brake on
3. Release brake pedal
4. Push parking brake release and hold 10-15 sec
5. Release the button
6. Push and hold brake pedal
7. In 2 seconds pull parking brake towards "on"
8. Automatic brake blocking mode lits up in the instrument panel
8. Release button and brake pedal.

Repeat to revert.

Free-wheeling
In certain situations, you must allow the vehicle
to free-wheel (while being towed, on a rolling
road, in an automatic car wash, or being
transported by rail or sea freight, etc.). 7
The procedure varies according to the type of
gearbox and parking brake.
With a manual gearbox and
electric parking brake
With a manual gearbox
Release procedure
► With the engine running and while depressing
the brake pedal, move the gear selector to the

► While depressing the brake pedal, press the
control lever to release the parking brake.
