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 28°F (-2°C).

  • The external temperature is more than approximately 104°F (40°C).

  • The engine or other vehicle systems have not reached the 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 10 mph (16 km/h).

  • A gearshift paddle has been used to select a gear.

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).
