Hyundai Santa Fe: Downhill brake control (DBC). The Downhill Brake Control (DBC) assists the driver when descending a steep hill

The Downhill Brake Control (DBC) assists the driver when descending a steep hill without the driver depressing the brake pedal. It slows the vehicle to under approximately 6.3 mph (10 km/h) and lets the driver concentrate on steering the vehicle.

DBC defaults to the OFF position whenever the ignition is turned on.

The DBC can be turned on or off by pushing the button.
