What is the Brake Hold Function On Your Toyota

Toyota's brake hold function engages your vehicles braking system without you having to actually hold your foot on the brake.

This brake hold function is great for city drivers that stop frequently at lights, when pulling up to a drive-thru or just general driving.

This allows you to take your foot off the brake when you're stopped at a light and your vehicle wont move. The brake hold is automatically released once you press on the gas.

Where Is The Brake Hold Button Located?

The brake hold button is located on your vehicles center console area.
