What is Auto Start Stop?

BMW Dashboard

If you’ve been browsing the latest BMW vehicles like the powerful X7 or spacious X5, you might be wondering, “Just what is auto start/stop?” The auto start/stop function is a simple tech feature that has a huge impact on fuel economy. When you come to a complete stop, BMW automatic start/stop kicks into gear and shuts off the engine as your brake pedal depresses. The second you lift your foot off the brake or turn the steering wheel, BMW automatic start/stop puts the engine back into action for uninterrupted driving. Find out more about this valuable technology with BMW of Tenafly! 

Auto Start/Stop Function: Manual vs. Automatic

The way BMW automatic start/stop functions will differ slightly, depending on whether you have an automatic or manual transmission. An automatic transmission vehicle will work seamlessly as you press and release the brake pedal. In fact, you might not even notice that your auto start/stop function is on.

If you have a manual transmission, your engine will turn off automatically as you shift into neutral and release the clutch. If you want to re-engage the engine, pushing the clutch pedal will bring the engine back. So no matter what type of transmission you use, you can benefit from this fuel-saving technology.

How to turn off Start/Stop on BMW Models

BMW automatic start/stop is a fantastic feature that’s designed to save gas during stop-and-go Fort Lee traffic or Cresskill. However, BMW also gives drivers the option to turn it off and on as needed. And luckily, learning to turn off Start/Stop on BMW models is simple. Depending on your model, look for the auto start/stop function button near the gearshift or on the dashboard. This will switch off the function until you want to use it again.
