What Is My Ford's Auto Start-Stop?

Auto Start-Stop Technology (if equipped) can help reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions during city driving by switching off the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop.

How does the Auto Start-Stop technology work?

When you apply the brakes and come to a complete stop, like at a red light, your engine automatically shuts off. A light on the instrument cluster will let you know that the engine is off. Once you take your foot off the brake pedal, your vehicle automatically restarts without delay. 

Notes:

  • Auto Start-Stop may not shut your engine off if your vehicle battery is charging, the engine is still warming up, or if you’re using heat or air conditioning.
  • Your vehicle is equipped with a heavy-duty starter and battery to help compensate for a high number of starts and stops.
