Does your ST have EVIC? I turned mine off through the EVIC menu.

Here is a quote from the 12 owners manual:

Hill Start Assist (HSA)
When on is selected, the HSA system is active. Refer to
“Electronic Brake Control System” in “Starting And
Operating” for system function and operating information.
To make your selection, press and release the
SELECT button until a check-mark appears next to the
feature showing the system has been activated or the
check-mark is removed showing the system has been
deactivated.

HSA Off
Non-EVIC Equipped Vehicles
If you wish to turn off the HSA system, follow this
procedure:
1. Start with the engine OFF, and the vehicle in PARK with the wheels straight.
2. Start the engine.
3. With the engine running and the brake applied, rotate the steering wheel 180 counterclockwise from center.
4. Press the “ESC Off” switch four times within 20 seconds. The “ESC Off Indicator Light” should appear and disappear four times.
5. Rotate the steering wheel 360 clockwise (180 clockwise from center).
6. Cycle ignition switch OFF then ON.
7. If the sequence was completed properly, the “ESC Off Indicator Light” will blink several times to confirm HSA is off.

Steps 1 through 7 must be completed within 90 seconds to turn off HSA. Repeat steps 1 through 7 to re-enable HSA functionality.

EVIC Equipped Vehicles
HSA is a Customer Programmable Feature on a EVIC equipped vehicle. If you wish to turn off the HSA feature, refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Customer Programmable Features” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.

The ESC button is to the left of the Hazard Flasher button.

Do all RAM trucks have this HSA? Mine does not have EVIC. My dash is tach, speedo, fuel and temp gauges. Under the radio the flasher button is in the middle, to the left is traction control and then the tow/haul. Only three marked and useable buttons.
Where the odometer is, you can select odometer, outside temp, ECO and trip mileage in the inset box. The button's on the left side of steering wheel says select and reset, which control the inset box selections. The buttons on right side of steering wheel are for the cruise control.
So..do I have it or not???
