I have a 2016 Touring and about 4 months ago I had my first stahl when the engine was trying to restart. Since then I have had about 50. I took it in and they said they could see that it stalled a few times, but could not reproduce the problem while test driving it. They did a reset on the computer. That did nothing and the problem continues. I now have a problem starting the car also. When I push the start button, most of the times the car starts, but many times now the dash lights come on, but no engine start. I have to push it 3-4 times to get it to start. What kind of system did they install in our cars that is already going south? I am taking it in on Monday and leaving it for the week. I will let you know the results, but from the look of this thread they cannot figure it out, or do not want to tell us what the real problem is. This sucks and is dangerous!
Yoda. Any chance you can provide the exact steps and whether you did it with both key fobs? I'm wondering if both key fobs need to be in the car at the same time when you execute the steps. Like I said, I did this with only one key fob and it reset itself when I turned the car off and back on the next time. I'm wondering if this is a "fix" they made to the 2018s.OK, please bare with me on this one. When you state that you need to do this procedure with both fobs, do you mean that you are starting the engine with both key fobs remotely or that you are starting the engine with the dash push button while having the key fob on your person? TIA
Well, curiosity got this old cat cuz I couldn't wait around for an answer. Just like slaroche, I figured someone was laughing their butt off at me, but oh well, it wouldn't be the first time... I tried out this simple procedure without using the remote start on the fobs. So far it's working great. We took Yoda out for a short drive and so far no auto stop at any of our stops. Turning the engine off & back on several times didn't change the setting either. Pushing the auto stop switch on the console still brings up the disable, enable message on the dash but it doesn't change anything. No more distracting yellow light on the dash just to have the auto stop disabled. My hat's off to whoever figured out this simple procedure. Thank you!
Yup, happy to oblige.Yoda. Any chance you can provide the exact steps and whether you did it with both key fobs?
