Hey how are you

Can you try A Master reset and we go from there in case it was a glitch and we reset the hildd descent erro and get out of limp mode

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You

if it wont start what will i do next
UK Auto Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 11 months ago

on 2017 ,unfortunately you need a factory scanner or equivalent to communicate with hill descent module,like basic code reader want see it to read ,clear etc..

if it does not start ,scan it ,retrieve fault codes,post them back here for me,i look pin point troubleshoot ,send it to you and we can be accurate
