Hi,

I recently bought a hatchback and for some reason the auto start and stop is not working. I remember it worked very well in the Cruze sedan when I test drove it, but not in my hatchback. I'm currently in Texas, so I'm not sure if the weather is affecting it.

Is this feature only for Cruze sedans?

I should have noticed it when I was test driving my hatchback but I completely forgot about it...

Any ideas?

Thanks

It's on all automatic Gen 2's, hatch or sedan.

Certain conditions will cause it not to activate. Off the top of my head, causing it never to activate during a drive cycle:
-Low battery (<12.1V)
-Cabin temp/AC usage (try Eco mode)
-Check engine light on/new battery installed

thanks,

check engine light is off, temp/ac is on eco mode. Battery's voltage is 14.0...

I do know the car did not start at first when I was going to test drive it so they recharged the battery. I guess it must be the battery then.

Look at voltage with ignition off (push and hold start button without foot on the brake pedal for 3-5 second or so and it will come up in 'service mode').

Mine had a new battery put in it before I got the car, likely from sitting too long in the showroom, and it was the wrong type. It should be a Group 48 AGM AC Delco in there.

I just did what you told me, battery voltage is 12.2

this is the battery I have

Looks like there's a date stamp etched into the battery 23/11/15 which would be Nov 23, 2015. (See just above the yellow DANGER/POISON sticker). So it's likely the original battery.

Even though the battery is still fairly new, it's possible it deeply discharged while sitting on the lot. So much so it could have led to internal damage.

May want to have it load-tested. The dealership can do this or a reputable automotive battery retailer.

EDIT: There you go, glad it's fixed!
