Waiting for friends reply.
As per my understanding about Automatic Transmission the half clutch thingy (Crawling On) enabled as soon the user shift the gear leaver to 'D
- rive' mode - to sustained this thing user need to press Break pedal unless there is need to shift 'N
- eutral' mode during long traffic jam.
Please feel free to correct me..
