TRIGGERING AN AUTO STOP

To trigger an auto stop, drive forward with Drive (D) or Sport (S) selected, and stop the vehicle. Fully press the brake pedal to make sure the vehicle is stationary.

The following conditions inhibit an auto stop:

  • The external temperature is less than approximately -4°C.

  • The external temperature is more than approximately 40°C.

  • The engine or other vehicle systems have not reached their optimum operating temperatures.

  • The driver's seat belt is unbuckled.

  • Demand from the climate control system requires the engine to be running, e.g., when in defrost mode.

  • The vehicle's battery charge is low.

  • The auto stop/start system is deactivated.

  • After reversing, the vehicle's speed has not exceeded 16 km/h (10 mph).

The instrument panel displays an information lamp when the vehicle is stationary and the auto stop/start system is active, but operation is inhibited. See AUTO STOP/START INHIBIT (WHITE).
