Thread: New S1 owner - engine start stop question

  1. Default New S1 owner - engine start stop question

    I'm a proud owner of a brand new S1, 5 weeks old, only done 500km so far.

    I've experienced strange behaviour of the engine stop-start function. The engine start again in very short period of time after it stop, I have not actually measured it, but in roughly 10 seconds mark.
    According to owner manual, the engine will start in following situations :
    - Inside temperature is deviated from air cond temp setting ( Air cond is OFF all the time, it is winter now !)
    - battery is undercharged
    - high power consumption. (I only have radio ON)

    I'll bring it to dealer to check, any one (or other Audi model owner) experience similar like this ?
    My son's Mazda 3 and my wife's Lexus stop/start works without issue.

    I'm not fan of stop/start function anyway, just wonder if the system has any fault.

    What is the build date on it though?

    Battery could be the issue and if the car has been sitting around a while unused the battery may have been signicantly run down.
