All we should have to do is change the angle on the sensor to be tilted down a few degees. That way the system will think we are not on a upward hill and not activate

But is that sensor involved with the stabilitrac or traction control? I do not even have my car yet, let alone the cool manuals some of you have, but to me, those two systems seem important in saving tires for when it matters. I do not think you want them malfunctioning, but again I do not have my car yet, so I may be way off base. Killing the hill assist may be worth any other penalty!

Not a smart idea...other modules use the yaw sensor not just HSA. It will have to be a programming modification and not a physical modification. I will ask my friend who readily has access to a tech2. When I was a Mercedes tech, I could go into any module and manually adjust the different options and coding on a car, weather it had that specific option or code. I can see if the tech2 will give the same capability. The above diagram only shows signal path, which means only the bcm can turn off HSA

If you do that then HSA will activate every time you back up.

My tuner is going to look into this with GM Tech2 when im in the shop next to pick up my Skip Shift Eliminator, if it works we will share what needs to be changed to stop HSA with everyone but chances are you will need a Tech2 or someone with access to one.

I don't think it works that way. I have been stopped at a light before pointing downhill and HSA did not activate

It will also engage when facing down hill so now you would increase the activity of this feature when facing down hill. I know that it activated facing down hill because it did it to me in my driveway.

He meant backing up an incline in Reverse. HSA does activate in that situation. Changing the angle of the sensor would make your HSA activate while in Reverse, even on a flat surface.

I know this has been beat to death so excuse the rant. If GM wanted to put that feature is place which is arguably a good feature, they should have given the option of disabling it for without having to effect any other system. If a GM employee or moderator is following this thread, please pass this email on. - Thanks!

I agree 100% that HSA is troubling,I mean come on GM,Chevrolet,people have been driving on hills for decades and stopping at the top of them as well,I think that people who chose a Camaro with a manual trans.knew what they were doing,heck I drove a Pinto as a teen and could hold on a hill with no problem,HSA caused me to stall on a slight incline that otherwise would not have been an issue for me in any other manual trans.car with no assist.I understand this was probably some stupid govt safety mandate,all the reason more the govt.should stick with what it knows which is nothing!

GM had better figure out that this is a BIG deal that will cost them future sales. Dodge, I think (or Ford, cant remember for sure) has this feature but the driver can turn it off. Make it user selectable or get rid of it. With future Camaro sales already in trouble (maybe) due to styling changes, they don't need this unnecessary "feature" to further alienate buyers. GM ignore your core customers at your peril.

Disagree. They have mastered taxes, spending, patronage, etc. This is aimed at all party affiliations!

This is borderline dangerous.

I was on many hills today, if you wait for it to turn off you risk rolling back into another car, and if you power through it enough to make sure you don't stall, it beats the piss out of the car to do it. Maybe it's time to see if brandon can check into getting something going.

I think it works great. It holds the brakes on just like you would do in an older car with the hand brake and releases after 2 secs. Helps reduce clutch wear. I do think it comes on too easy and is only needed for steeper slopes. I guess it could release a little faster and would be better.
