Start/Stop issue

7091 Views 13 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  jeremybingham
My partner has a MINI ONE and she has said this has happened twice now. Today the car was stopped on the driveway. Took the foot off the clutch, handbrake on and the engine turned off ie start/stop kicked in. I opened the passenger door to speak to her and then the engine started. She didnt apply the clutch, it just started on its own. She said this also happened at traffic lights last week. Any one else experienced this?

They will restart depending upon the demand on aircon or heating

Na, if you open the drivers door on a stop/start BMW the car will not restart until you hit the start button.

If it was a very warm day and you had the aircon on, once the interior starts to warm up, the car will restart to run the aircon compressor.
The same thing will happen on a cold day when running the heater

I'm confused as to why I keep reading "in a bmw...." It's almost as if the expectation is that because these cars are manufactured by bmw, that they would behave the same?

I can compare as we own both, but the latest F series cars the software and menus are almost identical
