Auto Stop/Start

Asked by Jul 31, 2016 at 12:20 AM about the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

We just bought a 2016 and love it - except the Start/Stop. It's nice that the
Eco setting "sticks" in this model (I leave it on), but the Stop/Start doesn't.
You have to set it every time you're in the Jeep. It's kind of disconcerting
being in the middle of an intersection waiting for oncoming traffic to clear so
you can turn left and having the engine shut off. I live in a very congested
suburban area, and as soon as my foot's off the brake, I usually need to
GO. Really wish there was an option in the settings to turn this off
permanently. Think Jeep will do that at some point, maybe with a software
update? I think consumers should be in control of something as intrusive as
this.

Ask your salesman- if you don't like the way these 21st century cars drive, try something else-

EPA knows better than you..Just as a Politician knows whats best for you. Try not to think. Vehicles are really to dangerous for people to own and drive they will be going away. Start reading some of these Government study's!

There is a simple option now for the car to remember if you want Stop/Start disabled. Here is the link: www.smartstopstart.com

Go to your u-connect screen --settings/engine/auto-stop ..this can be adjusted from 0 seconds through to 10 mins... either 5 mins or 10 mins should suit you better..

The setting you refer to is actually called "Engine Off Power Delay" There is no "Auto- stop" setting other than the disable button you need to press every time you start the car. . This setting does not have anything to do with the Auto (Engine) Stop Start. The YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHMy16FVEmM) that claims this is wrong, as you can see from its comments. Here is what this setting does according to the owner's manual: "When this feature is selected, the power window,switches, radio, Uconnect phone system (if equipped),DVD video system (if equipped), power sunroof (ifequipped), and power outlets will remain active for up to 10 minutes after the ignition is cycled to OFF. Opening either front door will cancel this feature. Press the “Engine Off Power Delay” button on the touchscreen and choose from “0 sec,” 45 sec,” “5 min” or “10 min” to select your desired time interval." This has nothing to do with the Engine Stop Start system.
