Or does it have to be turned on (activated) each time the car is restarted?
Not sure about the Telluride, but with my BMW, it remains “on” when you stop and park because it’s also becomes the parking brake. Put the transmission in P and walk away. When you restart, it’s on and holding, just lightly press the throttle and it releases. When you again come to a stop, it holds. Great feature.

I use that feature constantly on the Stinger, it's an awesome feature. Ive made it part of my start up procedure. turn off stop and go, enable auto hold... it's routine now
All these features that people wish they didn't have to push a button for, "every time they get in their vehicle", become second nature to activate after a while...

I have the EX model and my Auto Hold light is white when I turn on the vehicle, which from what I understand the system is in stand-by. When I stop and try the Auto Hold function, my car still creeps forward and does not remain at a complete stop. The Auto Hold light is never green; it just is off. What am I doing wrong?

Wish it was implemented the same as my Tesla. When I want to use auto hold, I simple press the brake pedal harder and the car goes into hold mode. This way I can use it sort of on demand versus for the entire trip. Sometimes I want to creep in traffic other times I want to have the vehicle held at a stop light.

Are you manually depressing the Auto Hold button on your center console by the transmission shifter? If so try pressing the break pedal harder toward the floor board to engage Auto Hold. If that does not work I would recommend taking the car to the dealership for service.

John, Thank you for your help. I was not pressing the Auto Hold button on the console. I thought it was an automatic feature and I kept waiting for the light to change on the console. I did press the button and then I got the icon on my dashboard and it worked. Again, thank you; this was driving me nuts!

It is standard on all models and must be turned on every time you start the car. Stays on till you turn Telluride off
Is there any way to program or set it to be on when you turn your car on. So this feature stays enabled so you don’t have to turn it on every time you get in your car?

NO just like the Auto OFF can be canceled every time you press the button
