Thanks for sharing your experience.

It was the dealer's service advisor who told me about the system being locked out and I have asked for further technical documentation for this. Will see him again end of the week and hopefully get more answers.

I never got the low battery warning before though. So sounds like my battery just can't get above the voltage threshold for start/stop to work

My auto stop/start has not worked for 2 months. I put battery on a charger overnight and now works. I have had Land Rover look at this before. They charge my battery and tell me everything is okay. It seem to me they are treating the symptom not the problem. Question is why does the battery not stay charged enough to keep auto stop/start working.

I do not go on long drives too often. I live less than a mile from the commuter bus. 1 day a week I drive to work which is 80 miles round trip. I guess I drive less that 125 miles a week. Could the problem be that I don't drive enough to keep the battery fully charged?

Sounds like my dealer has been charging my battery instead of "resetting the system" to allow the stop start to work.

How old is your car? My car is almost 3 years old so they might say the battery needs to be replaced. Will they replace the battery under warranty?

I've been having auto-start/stop issues with my car since day 1. It'd work for about a month or so then it stops working. Each time I bring it in, they reset the gateway module and recharge the battery and send me on my way. I just brought my car in for the same issue again and they tell me it's because my dash-cam is plugged in and it's draining the battery.

I have my dash cam plugged into one of the USB ports, but it turns off when the car is shut off. My understanding is that the USB port is not powered when the car is shut off. Can anyone confirm this? I'll do a test later to see if I can figure out if any voltage is flowing through it. I have a feeling they're just BS-ing me. I'm hoping I can go back next time and ask them to change the battery.

There was a long discussion on the UK forum about the problem.


One thing effecting the start/stop is a low battery , but the car tries not to overcharge the battery to save fuel and will allow the battery to partially discharge.


Also when braking the alternator goes into full charge to recover some charge.

Mine worked for a couple of miles after I left the dealer, both times after I've taken it to the annual service.

I've forgotten about it.
