I don't think so, since basically hill start assist is a software function of the anti lock brakes to keep pressure in the system for 1-3 seconds or so when the sensors detect that the car is on a hill with the proper sensor inputs to engage it in the first place.

Unless the car lacked anti lock brakes this should be a simple matter of enabling it in the computer.

A yaw sensor that doesn't sense vehicle yaw?
That's odd...

The specific sensor is not named, but basically it's an angle or incline sensor. Perhaps saying yaw sensor is a bit off as yaw is usually in the lateral direction (x or y) rather than up and down (z axis) as is needed for the system to function.

The point of the earlier statement is that there is nothing special that needs to be added for hill start assist other than the code to enable it as the car already needs the sensors and hardware for ABS, traction control, and stability control.

So that would be a pitch sensor. Nice. We're flying Focuses now.

To turn on Hill assist (I did successfully in my 2013 SE) you have to initialize the ECU.

AFTER you write the BCM, exit focccus(dash is like an Xmas tree) THEN open Forscan, clear codes, THEN reopen foCCCus and initialize ABS ECU then your lights will go off and it will work.

I wonder what the difference is between Headlight type "HID" and "Alternative HID". Does HID mean factory lights and alternative = aftermarket?
