The second problem is that the sometimes the car will shut off the Eco switch, (the light goes off as if I had switch the system off) which of course turns off the Start/Stop system. I understand many of you would be happy to have this problem, but I am concerned that whatever is wrong with Start/Start could be a sensor that could cause other problems with the car. Right now the actual gas mileage is way below what it should be and it could be caused by a lead foot or a bad senor, I just don't know.
Of course since this is a intermittent problem, it is going to be difficult to fix.
Has anyone else had this problem and do you know the fix?
