Reset advice for Stop Start

Guys, having an issue with my Eco Stop/Start. For the past several weeks now, my car remains idling when stopped and doesn't shutdown.

The car does journeys of more than 30 miles several times per week and so I do not think this is a battery charging issue but may be wrong.

Anyone got any advice on what could be causing the problem?

RE: Reset advice for Stop Start

In almost 4 years my RRE stopped maybe 20 times. After a year a battery is replaced and guess what? The car stopped another 5 times before the system gave up.
I am pretty sure, the start/stop system of RRE is one of the many things that look nice on paper, but in real life it s$cks.

So, don't focus on the start/ stop because it will drive you crazy Wink

Have to agree, a weaker battery as it gets older, usage patterns, air-con all affect if it works or not, just ignore it, or turn it off then you know it wont turn off reliably!

RE: Reset advice for Stop Start

When a battery gets older?
In the first year Start/Stop worked 20 times. Then the battery get changed.
In that week S/S worked another 5 times.
Don't blaim it on the battery, because in my case it isn't due to an "old" battery. Unless you consider a 1 week old battery an old battery Wink

RE: Reset advice for Stop Start

I’ve never had any issues with stop start except in very cold and very hot weather when the ambient temperature stops it from working. Also if my car wasn’t used for 3-4 months it would never work until I had driven it about 20 miles then it would cut in fine. Over on RRS forums people have been finding the when they change the main battery sometimes the S/S will fail and it requires a reset of the Battery Management System to get the stop/start going again.

RE: Reset advice for Stop Start

Our MY15 Evoque doesn't often stop/start. It even had a software upgrade at its second service which was meant to make the system less sensitive to a low battery condition. It seemed to work ok on the way home, but rarely works at all these days.

We've done some long trips and even then it doesn't kick in.

We recently hired a Golf, that stopped/started within a few hundred metres of driving off.

cheers

ps My Defender doesn't stop/start either...Wink Well most of the time...lol

RE: Reset advice for Stop Start

My 2014 worked perfectly for what must of been a year. I agree that during cold mornings it didn’t operate till the engine warmed up. However it has been a feature that is useless now. Occasionally after a very long trip, it will work for a day or two and then pack up again. I’ve been to the dealers and every time they just recharge the battery and it’s fine again for about a week then dead again. They say it’s because the battery hasn’t charged enough and it needs to be at 85% to be working properly. I have an aftermarket tracked fitted to my vehicle and I think that might be draining the battery.

Personally I don’t miss the stop start. Paired with the sluggish start, it is dangerous when attempting to clear a blind junction with fast moving traffic. My bro has a 2011 Merc E350 and wow, the stop start is instant and when you hit the gas, it goes like a rocket! The evoque crawls off and then a surge of power. The hesitancy and delay from when you floor it and when it actually moves is so so slow.

Anyways, the dealer also told me that the battery can be trickle charged and that should cure the problem.

RE: Reset advice for Stop Start

Same experience here. Worked for a while when car was new. Took it in after 10,000 miles- and at that point it hadn't start/stopped in months. They replaced the battery... worked a handful of times that week, and now, once again, not for months.

2016. Still under warranty.

RE: Reset advice for Stop Start

An interesting aside from this issue - use of Stop/Start a lot is now being highlighted as a contributing factor to the oil dilution problem in Disco5, RRS L494, FFRR and Disco Sports - odd that nobody on this forum has mentioned the issue (manifested by the time/distance to next service plummeting daily as more and more diesel gets dropped into the sump and dilutes the lube oil) even though Evoque has the same engines as DS and the 2.0ltr D5/RRS

RE: Reset advice for Stop Start

My 2014 Evoque worked fine the first year, hardly ever engaged for the next 2 and a half years and then after a software update worked most of the time until I sold it 9 months later.
This was on the original battery.
I didn’t really mind whether it worked or not, as one of the posts on here remarked there was always a delay when starting off.
