NO...A stop-start system shuts the engine off when the car or truck stops, and restarts it instantly when the brake or clutch pedal is released. The radio, gauges, fan, and other accessories keep going while the engine is off. BUT! The system does not work if the driver is not buckled in or has their door open; if the battery is too hot or cold; if the car is on a steep grade; if the cabin is too hot or cold; if the defroster is on, with the fan on High; if the battery is not fully charged, the engine is not warm enough, the hood is open, maximum a/c is set, or if the brake pedal is not being fully depressed.
