Re: Stop & Start

I know that my C5Air has stopped switching off. The icon flashes 3 times and then keeps running. I have had this before, in winter when doing local short trips. Since 18 Match I have traveled 360 miles and done 130 engine starts. I am not surprised that it is not working and I believe it will come back to normal once we start to come out of lockdown. We don't have any agents open yet except for essential workers so it is somewhat academic at present.

How many miles are you doing currently - I've only done out 100 miles per month when I normally do about 300 per week? My stop/start is still working, but if the electronics go into power-save mode when I'm parked listening to the stereo, then stop/start won't work for a few miles because the battery isn't charged up enough. Power save mode operates to ensure that the battery has the capacity to start the car and also keep the alarm, etc. operational when parked. I haven't used a battery charger yet, but may do so just to top it up.

I don’t think you can, it reverts back to stop start once you restart the engine.

The stop/start system is fitted as a pollution reducing system . It is designed so that it can't be switched off. If you don't want it to stop, then either stop with your foot on the clutch, or, as toy slow to stop, slip the car into neutral without using the clutch. As far as I know, you can't do anything with an automatic.

ON an auto C5 Aircross, applying the handbrake keeps engine running, and footbrake can be released.
Pressing the 'P' button causes engine stop to function whilst gear is disengaged and brakes are released (and high level brakelight is off).
