Steep downhill assist, Fiat Ducato
Yesterday when I was negotiating an 18% steep decline I was in 2nd gear with brakes. Maybe I should have been in 1st.
I'd to park up for a while to let my tyres cool down (Tyrepal said they were too high).
Today when negotiating a rather kinder 15% decline I pressed the button that I think is meant to assist in those situations, up to 30kph.
However, I didn't notice any difference. Nor did I see a light on the button, but to be honest I was too busy with bends etc.
How should it work and what should it feel like?
