As a driver that does not like the ECO/on-off mode, I would like to install your problem into my vehicle. I did some tests and tried to seeNaplesTopLess said:Had my car in the shop for two problems with the Start/Stop system. The first problem was that when I shifted the car into park, the engine would shut off (as it suppose to) and then the ignition would also shut off (not suppose to). This problem was fixed with a couple of software updates to the Start/Stop system.
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?
what I could do to defeat this mode without touching the ECO button. The only thing I came up with is the Dynamic mode switch. If you are running your vehicle in the Dynamic mode, the ECO/on-off is turned off automatically. That orange light will also go off. When you turn off your Dynamic mode, the ECO/on-off light returns. That's all I could come up with at this time.
Your second item is most likely a heavy foot. I have my mpg setting in the average mode. I have never seen my MPG go below 24 and has gone as high as 30 at Florida highway speeds. Of course I am a very conservative drive which might explain my numbers....
Good luck and hope this feedback helps. Pascha
