Hi all

Just a query, I've a end 2011 R57 lci MCS which has stop start on it. However it seems to be very very tempramental, sometimes it engages sometimes it just refuses and the engine continues, I've turned it off and on again, is there some sort of secret to get it to function or is it just pot luck if the winds blowing in the right direction ?

Personally I hate it!

There are lots of sensors that will not allow it to work, most likely at present is the outside temperature! Could be low battery if you have lights, heater and A/C on!

There are many reasons why it doesn't kick in. None I can fathom. Under 4 degrees is definately one where it doesn't kick in. There have been times where I've wiorried it didn't work on the S and the D, but both times it was my paranoia!

Cheers for the replies, just must be the fact conditions at the moment don't favour it kicking in, also don't think it works at all if I'm in sport !?, could be wrong though ! lol!

I think it is 3 degrees centigrade and below that it won't kick in.

It also won't kick in if the engine is not up to temperature, if you have climate control and the cabin temperature is below or above that set, if the battery needs charging (note the battery will normally only charge on the overrun so may not charge on a long run) etc.

If you want to test it then charge the battery and drive the car for a few miles and provided that the outside temperature is 4 or above then it should work.

I had a fault with the voltage sensor on the battery lead which stopped mine working. This will a fault code so if you have a code reader you can check this.

I don't think there's anything wrong with yours as mine is very similar......under 4 degrees the engine doesn't stop and if it's not warmed up are the two main occasions for me.

On another point, I've noticed that if you stop at a junction when the wipers are on fully they stop too and only work intermittantly!

They came from the BMW parts bin, had that feature back in the 90's on a 3series Smile

From what I remember you also have to have the handbrake on and clutch off.

Mine doesn't need the handbrake on to enable stop start........I often pull up at traffic lights and leave the handbrake off if the road is level...
