Ford Focus: Turn Off Descent Control

The Descent Control feature on the Ford Focus will automatically engage the brakes when travelling down a hill or incline. If you don’t like this feature, you can turn off Descent Control with these steps.

Locate the Hill Descent control button. It’s usually located above the center console display. The feature is also automatically disabled if the vehicle exceeds 40mph.

On older models of the Ford Focus, this feature is called “Grade Assist” and is controlled using the Overdrive button on the gear shift knob.
