9th Gen Owners: Locked Brakes When Starting Car. Normal?

Hi

I've noticed that when I start my car for the first time after a cold night, the brakes are initially locked up until I tap the brakes a few times. Is that normal?

Let's define cold, what temp are we talking? I see you are in Atlanta - temps there, being from Minnesota, I would not define as cold.

In all reality, if you are experiencing something with your brakes in Atlanta temps, you have an issue, that we probably are not going to be able to diagnose over the interwebs.

Take it apart, or take it in.

I park on a hill and when I put my car in reverse the brakes lock until I step on the gas which prevents me from rolling.. I like it.

Is this on an AT or MT? I know my MT has that brake hold feature, I actually don't like it.

It has gone below 32 degrees F these past few days. I have not noticed anything unusual in the braking when driving. This brake lockup only occurs the first thing in the morning on the first start, and not during startup of the car throughout the day.

I only noticed this phenomenon because we have Push to Start which requires stepping on the brake to start the car...

Do you mean the brake pedal is really stiff? If so, I experience the same in cold weather. After the car has been started though the brake pedal is no longer stiff.

It has actually saved my butt a few times I was in a really steep incline parked right behind a car too close

We have a brake hold feature? Only remote situation I had of this was when I wash the car and use the hand brake to hold the car. 1st start up from when I drop the handle all the way and take off I can hear the rear brakes let go. I only hear this when I washed the car and applied hand brake before the brakes fully dried.

MT cars do for sure - Not sure on AT cars.

You will notice it when stopped on an incline, and take your foot off the brake to engage the clutch, the car won't roll for a few seconds, giving you time to shift, and start releasing the clutch without letting the car roll. Personally, its a thing for the MT beginner in my mind.

Below 32, huh, it was -26 last weekend where I was, so 32 is a cake walk!

But in all seriousness, do you park on an incline at all? IF so, maybe the AT cars have the brake hold feature as well, as member @turner850 pointed out he has experienced in his CVT.

As far as I know man my car has done it since I bought it brand-new every single morning..

I park at an incline and every morning I put my car into reverse and let off the brake and it holds...

If I wait about 5 Seconds it will let go and I roll forward.

That sounds more like a seized caliper or sticky brake pad lol. My car goes in reverse immediate as soon as I let off the brake and I'm not on an incline.

Someone posted the other day that the Accord loses the hydraulic assist quickly. Looks like that is what OP is referring to as "lock up". The pedal is hard to push first thing after being parked for a while.

I will look into that, thank you. I really like this car reliability so far, granted it is the first car I have owned and I've only had about 20k miles on it.

I been driving manuals for a bit I usually know where the clutch grabs as I let off on a hill start. This may explain how I do the exact same thing and almost stall from too light a gas application on a very slight incline.
