Car no longer remembers last Stop/Start setting

Hi all,

A weird thing has happened - my car (2010 1.2 Lounge Dualogic) has stopped "remembering" which Stop/Start setting was last used.

I always drive with S/S off, and until today I didn't need to press the dashboard button when I started the car to switch it off. I only noticed the warning light missing from the display when I was sat in it stationary with the engine running earlier - does it appear after you reach a certain speed (like the automatic door locking feature which kicks in at 5mph or something)? Does it appear only when in a gear (so not in neutral)? Could it be that the warning light is malfunctioning and not displaying, therefore leading me to think S/S is on when in fact it's off?

The car hasn't been serviced or anything within the last few days so I'm at a loss as to why this has started happening.

Sorry for all the questions, I'm a new driver and it's my first car. Thanks in advance for your help.
Thanks iphotoguys thanked for this post

I'm on my 19th Fiat 500 and some remember and some don't. Most don't. I have no idea why.

Re: Car no longer remembers last Stop/Start setting

Ours sometimes forgets it should be in sport mode. I leave it on all the time but just occasionally the car feels a bit flat and I notice the sport light is out. Gah, that means I've got to reach out and press the button!

Re: Car no longer remembers last Stop/Start setting

Mine always defaulted to S/S being on after the car was re-started after the ignition was switched off. I assumed this was a legal requirement so that the official emissions test was valid. However, the 500X I have now remembers the last S/S setting between ignition switch-offs.

I recall SS was introduced in 2010, at that time it dident have the memory function but it was introduced as a software upgrade and as standard on later cars I think around mid 2011

SS is a wonderful invention, and everyone should use it. It stops the engine, it stops the continual exhausts at junctions, and it gives peace and quiet to all around you.

I understand that people don't like using it, and Mrs Mick F was one of them, but once you get used to it, it's strange when other cars don't do it.

Regards,
Mick.

Re: Car no longer remembers last Stop/Start setting

Agreed. I only switch mine off in very hot weather because without the engine running the a/c doesn't keep up its waft of cold air.

How about checking the battery ! That's what I would do. It is well known that the S/S models need a bigger battery.

Re: Car no longer remembers last Stop/Start setting

Thanks for all the replies everyone; I noticed today that a few seconds after I pulled away the S/S icon appeared on my display, so it must just take a moment to show you that it's off. Guess I just never noticed this before!
