The hold will disengage when the clutch bites and you drive off.
Yep, I stalled mine too. Auto-restart at least made it look like I was less of a dork.

I'm totally going to try releasing the brake first - I've just been giving it more gas and 'forcing' it to start without staling. (I mean, it's only been a couple of times so it's no big deal, but your approach sounds correct unlike mine. )

I just pull it in neutral and then back into gear before taking off. Neutral disables the hold function and if you put it in gear and start letting the clutch out, hold never engages...

I thin what SLVR BULLIT is referring to works when the Hold function is working properly. The original post was referencing a situation where the Hold function would not disengage no matter what was tried. According to the owner's manual, the Hold function is part of Porsche Stability Management (PSM). If you turn off the PSM function on the center console, that turns off the Hold function (as well as other PSM features). If my Hold function freezes up again, I think I'll try temporarily turning off PSM, and then turning it back on once I'm in gear.

The rat [email protected]@rd Hill Assist stuck on me tonight and it wouldn't release. The car stalled and started three times before I was able to get out of harms way: an overly zealous soccer mom in her giant SUV. All I saw was that ugly chrome grill growing larger and larger in the rear-view mirror.

I'm wondering if anyone discovered a way to override this dopey feature? Even my Jeep Wrangler has a way to bypass the Hill Assist.
