Start/stop system

Start/Stop* - involuntary stop manual gearbox

Updated 7/23/2018

Some engine and gearbox combinations are equipped with a Start/Stop function which engages in the event of e.g. stationary traffic or waiting at traffic lights.

In the event that a start-up fails and the engine stops, proceed in accordance with the below:

  1. Depress the clutch pedal again - the engine starts automatically.
  2. In certain cases the gear lever must be set in neutral position. The combined instrument panel then shows the text Put gear in neutral.
