    Electronic Parking Brake Info

    Due to the lack of any exciting new information, I'm reduced to posting anything V related I can get my hands on, even if it's parking brake.

    Seriously though- I've seen a few questions about this, so when I came across this info today I figured I'd share with the class.





    Kind of neat that it wil automatically disengage if an attempt is made to accelerate, which means it can be used for hill start assist on steep inclines to avoid roasting the clutch.

    I know it's not much, but it's all I've got today that's V related.

    Re: Electronic Parking Brake Info

    I'll add some info too.
    Tap Shift




    To use Tap Shift, the shift lever must be in Manual Mode. Vehicles with this feature have switches on the back of the steering wheel. Tap the left switch to downshift, and the right switch to upshift.

    The tachometer display on the instrument panel cluster will show which gear the vehicle is in and a number indicating the requested gear range when moving the shift lever forward or rearward. See Speedometer and Odometer for more information on the odometer.

    CTS-V vehicles use tracer lights around the outside of the tachometer as a performance up-shift light. These tracers flash to indicate when to shift to the next higher gear to avoid the engine speed limit. See Tachometerfor more information.

    While using the Tap Shift feature, the vehicle will have firmer, quicker shifting for increased performance. You can use this for sport driving or when climbing or descending hills, to stay in gear longer, or to down shift for more power or engine braking.

    The transmission will only allow you to shift into gears appropriate for the vehicle speed and engine Revolutions Per Minute (RPM). The transmission will not automatically shift to the next lower gear if the engine RPM is too high.

    If shifting is prevented for any reason, the currently selected gear will flash multiple times, indicating that the transmission has not shifted gears.

    While in the Tap Shift mode, the transmission will not automatically downshift on hard acceleration.

    When accelerating your vehicle from a stop in snowy and icy conditions, you may want to shift into second gear. A higher gear ratio allows you to gain more traction on slippery surfaces.

    How does one adjust the EPB system to allow for lining wear?

    Slushbox: The transmission the V needed back in '04.

    ^^^ Can't believe I just typed that.

    Great info Tony, love the built in shift light.

    While on the subject, any info on the keyless entry and start system? Did you say the start will be a turn instead of a push? Also, will we get remote start? No info on the 09V page of Cadillac, maybe I should check Reeds site.

    Too many nanny controls on the automatic in "manual" tap shift - I'll gladly stick with the REAL manual tranny.

    No need to worry about adjusting this animal. There is a module on top of the rear frame/cradle that is very smart and will adjust to whatever it takes to engage. As for holding on hills or any other thing related to movement forget it, it won't happen. The park brake module is watching every move you make.
