nope. scan for codes and check and clean the connections at the wheel speed sensors. also check the wiring in that area for rubbed spots. Vehicle that new though should have a code that will help you out.

Yes. When you do that, the brake stays activated for a few seconds after you release the brake. It's the Hill Start Assist, so the vehicle doesn't roll back when you move your foot to the accelerator.
