The electric parking brake (EPB) activates everytime you turn off ignition. When you turn on the car again you have to disengage the EPB with the switch next to the shifter or tapping on the accelerator. You can press the Park Off button on the center console to not have EPB automatically kick in, however on my 07 QP, it doesn't remember this and I have to do it everytime I drive the car. Is there a way to deactivate EPB always and make the setting stick? Don't see the point of it on an automatic in a flat city like Houston. I'm afraid a parking valet may not know how to disengage it and back out with the EPB engaged.
