I can see that this topic has been discussed in the past and apologize if my questions have already been answered. I find the hill assist feature of my 2019 GTI to be very annoying and would like to disable it. From earlier discussions on this forum, it doesn't look like it's possible to disable it without using some sort of external device (OBDeleven or VCDS). Can someone confirm whether that is correct? If so, is disabling hill assist something that a dealer would be willing to do? Short of having to purchase equipment, can anyone suggest a reasonable way to have it disabled? Thanks.

I don't think you can disable it. You can adjust time. I like it on short time. Put out a request in the local forum for a member to do it. Offer beverage/lunch

Do you know the location in VCDS/OBDeleven for this setting? I've been meaning to shorten mine for ages now, but keep forgetting about it haha.

There is a 10 credit app in OBD11 called Hill Start Assist (HSA) with 3 values, early/normal/late

Appreciate it. I’m waiting on a Mk8 R. It’s not a big deal, I haven’t really needed it to be longer, just surprised the first time it let go.

Many thanks for all of the responses to my questions. I'll try to find someone locally that has both the hardware and knowledge to make the change that 2018gti explained. I'd really like to eliminate this annoyance in an otherwise great car.

👍 If you end up not being able to find someone, I definitely recommend ordering the OBDeleven. It’s a good balance of price/easy to use in my opinion, for quick stuff like this. It’s a great code scanner too.

Thanks for that recommendation. Assuming I can teach myself to use it effectively, an OBDeleven might pay for itself in diagnosis alone.
