Hi all you clever people out there, got my new tekna just over a week ago. Everything working fine, then i had a play around in the settings etc. and now the stop/start isn't working. When i pull up at traffic lights foot on brake peddle auto brake comes in, auto stop comes in, engine stops and then starts up immediately, any ideas appreciated, tia.

There are many criteria that have to be met for stop start to activate.

The outside temperature, the level in the battery, what drive mode you're in, demand on the electrical systems (like air con trying to cool the car down)..the list goes on.

I wouldn't worry....just keep an eye on it...after a long run in standard drive mode it ought to come on

Might you be sitting there with your foot on the accelerator pedal? If you touch it whilst the engine is off, it'll restart.

I'd just add that the points I mentioned aren't faults they are just a few of the key determinants on whether stop/start will engage or not.

If it still doesn't come on with no aircon on after a long drive then take it back to your dealer for a look.

I have a similar problem.
J12 158 Xtronic March reg.
Engine turns off due to stop / start while braking, then turns back on again before the car becomes stationary, with the start / stop light showing a line through it. Unfortunately, the engine restarting gives a slight boost to the car at the same time.
Even aside from that, start / stop doesn't seem to work as it should. Having said that, I haven't read the relevant parts of the owner's manual....!
Anyone else had that? Not been to a dealer about it yet.

Expectations how it should work are yours expectations.

For me it works pretty fine.

It is completely logical that it will switch motor on and make short movement if you do not hold brakes..Or avto hold icon green. How the car will know that you would not like to move?😏

Same here. I hit the brakes, the engine stops and if the car doesn't become stationary in about 3-5secconds the the engine starts again.
I haven't searched this in the owner's manual, it's just what I noticed.

Don't believe that to be a 'bug'.
The system simply seems to expect the car to come to a stop in a few seconds after hitting the brakes !
If it does not the Firmware/program wants the driver to have a car ready to speed up again.
Anyway it must be quite annoying to never know when the engine cuts out and will restart on its own !
I have the 6 MT version (not Xtronic) but I also don't like to never really know for sure exactly when the engine will decide to Start/Stop (AC priority etc) !
