Always disable the auto stop/start system before wading. Failure to do so could cause damage to the vehicle.

The auto stop/start system is designed to improve fuel efficiency and automatically activates when the vehicle's ignition is switched on. Unless it is required to support other vehicle systems, the engine switches off when the vehicle is stationary, e.g., at traffic lights. When the engine stops, it is referred to as an auto stop.

When the brake pedal is released, or a drive gear is selected, the engine automatically restarts. When the engine restarts, it is referred to as an auto start.

Operation of the auto stop/start system is indicated by a status icon in the instrument panel. See AUTO STOP/START (GREEN).


When activated, the auto stop/start system does not always stop the engine when the vehicle is stationary. The system may also restart the engine before setting off.
