Hi

How does the Engine auto start/stop behave?
Does the engine turn off when you are at stop and go traffic/stop sign. Does this feature turn on itself everytime you start your engine? or you have to manually push the off button all the time?

TIA

After being paused for a few seconds with the foot on the brake it will turn the engine off dependent upon the status of the battery to sustain current turned on features such as air conditioning. When you release the brake and step on the gas the engine fires up and away you go. This has been my limited experience with this feature thus far.

I believe if you select the Auto Start/Stop off with the dash button it remembers your preference in between drives (ie. when you shut the car off.) I find Auto Start/Stop is very aggressive on the Palisade, stopping the engine within 2-3 seconds of coming to a stop and turning down the fan speed to the lowest level on the AC. I don't like it to be honest. The smoothness of startup and availability of power when you release the brake is on par with other vehicles I've driven with the feature so I know what it is like. On other cars they seem to wait longer to decide to shutdown the engine and don't seem to cut back the AC as much.

I'm still on the fence if I am going to leave it on, I'm trying to get used to it. Based on what I can find it saves about 9-12% in gas in stop and go city or traffic driving but frankly I have the $$$$ so maybe I should just enjoy my drive rather than frowning at the start/stop?

To be honest I do not like this feature as well. Every time the car shuts off your AC shuts off and warmer air starts flowing in.

I’ve tried pressing the button near the drive buttons but it will not remember every time. Is there another area to turn it off and will keep it off?

Same feeling here, but manual seem not to have a permanent way of keeping it off.
Would be nice to not have to hit the button every time the car is started.

Bummer, I didn't realize it resets to having the feature on each time the vehicle is started. Not a big deal, I'm sure the first time I notice it and I'm bothered its a single push away from a fix.

On mine all I have to do is release the brake and it restarts

If pressing that button every time you start the car really bothers anyone just cut a piece off an old credit card and jam it into the crack to the left of the button with the button pushed down. This way the feature is always turned off.

Sorry no shuts lol..just disables it. Fat fingers today.
Actually the Shark Racing module retains in memory the last selected position of the ISG and Auto-Hold functions. If you select to have the ISG off, and shut off your car, it will remember and keep it off. If you select to have the ISG active, it will be so when you restart it the next time. Same with the Auto-Hold feature as the one module works on both functions. Now, if they would come up with one to keep the rear parking sensor turned off until you turn it back on, that would be great.

Mine works flawlessly. It is brake pedal pressure related. If you only use light pressure as in stop and go line ups, motor does not shut off. If I give a firm push on the brake, it does. Today I had to stop at a RR crossing for 11 minutes or so, autostop worked BUT with foot still firmly on the brake, car started after 8 minutes. It, and AC slowing down, etc are battery saving features.
