Auoto stop start goes into park mode

Post by rm100 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 11:49 am

Hi , recently i have noticed that if sitting in queing traffic with my foot on the brake, maybe after a minute or so it goes into park mode and switches off, is this normal or a fault possibly?
Thanks

No not normal. Definitely a fault if all you are doing is sitting on the foot brake left in drive. Mine shuts down sometimes if I shift to park and leave it.

I have had the car into the dealer , cant find any problems, but have said if it happens again and you are near the dealers bring it in .They told me sometimes faults clear themselves over time and dont show up in diagnostics.
While it was in they also did a software upgrade on the aircon and spare wheel tyre pressure warning , still nothing changed with spare wheel tyre pressure warning , still shows up everytime you start the car.I wonder if these technicians even check the system once they do the upgrade , in this case they dont .
The dealership here is taggarts in glasgow, sub standard from my experience.
