Press the auto stop/start button to deactivate the auto stop/start system.


The auto stop/start system is automatically deactivated if low range, All Terrain Progress Control (ATPC), or Hill Descent Control (HDC) is selected. The system is also deactivated if certain terrain response special programs are selected by the driver, or selected by the AUTO driving program.

When the auto stop/start system is deactivated, a status icon is displayed. See AUTO STOP/START OFF (WHITE).

The instrument panel displays the message Auto Stop/Start not available if the icon is selected while the system is unable to operate.


The auto stop/start system automatically reactivates the next time the vehicle's ignition is switched on.
