      Good Morning,

      I hope everyone is fine these days!

      I purchased a new VW Golf R last November, it now has only 2689 km. on it.

      When I first purchased the R the Start-Stop system worked fine. A few weeks ago the Start-Stop system will not work!

      In the instrument panel it shows it is activated.

      I phoned the VW dealer told them the situation and they told me they were not sure, maybe you have not driven it far enough.

      I read in the manual that the Park Pilot system should be deactivated, air conditioner is off etc.
      I deactivated these.

      Shouldn't my R work with the the settings I program it to?

      I noticed in the car settings that I can reset the R to its Factory Settings would that help?

      Thank you.

      Check your battery. If voltage is too low, start/stop will not work.

      The start/stop is based on a few factors before it works like battery voltage, A/C, water temp...

      What’s funny is that most people complain about start-stop working, not about it not working.

      Hi Neil,

      At times I don't like it when my R shuts off because of the Start-Stop system!
      I just want my car to work like it is suppose too.

      Thank you.

      If you don't mind starting from default settings, you might as well try resetting everything to factory settings. Just make sure you note the important settings you want back later on.

      Also, Start/Stop is deactivated when you are in Race suspension and Sport transmission. I think both of those being "on" will prevent it from operating as that's what I finally figured out to disable Start/Stop for me every day. I have it set to be in Race all the time and, every time I shift out of Park, I automatically double tap the shifter back to put it in Sport. Start/Stop has not activated since. That might be due only to Sport mode but I don't think about it anymore. It's off and that's fine by me.

      So check that next time you're out. If you're in Sport, put the car into D instead.
