Just picked up a new 2016 cruze premier. The auto stop start has not worked yet and i have 100 kms on the car now. Any ideas? Even the test drive with another cruze didnt have the auto start stop working.

I checked out the manual and have found nothing.

Can be related to the drop in weather. If it's below a certain degree. The computer will stop auto start and run the car as regular.

Auto Start/Stop won't work below 41 degrees. There are other conditions that must be met as well before it will function.
Here are the conditions from the Owners Manual:

It also wont if the Check Engine Light is on, which was my case. Which also happened to be due to the electrical system because of the recall

Are you running the fan? I've noticed Auto stop will not work for me if I have the heat on. When at a light if I turn the fan off (Yes AC is completely off), Auto Stop is engaged. If I turn the fan on, it starts up.
Auto Stop seems to be finicky. I can't even see how beneficial it is. For me anyway. I'm never at a light long enough to see the benefit.
Just my 2 cents.

You might be right. I had the temp set to right between the blue and red and it was more towards warm when I picked it up today from service.

lately, when I have my fan running, I turn it off when stopping to get the auto stop to work, and then turn it back on right before I want / need to get going again

Anyone know why start/stop wouldn't be working? It's 46°F outside according to the car's display and just got it back from the dealer
What kind of service work did you have done? It may or may not have anything to do with Auto Stop not working, depending on the work performed.

The following conditions must be met for Auto Stop/Start to function.

Ambient engine coolant and transmission fluid temperature correlation meet specified values.

Hood switch status is closed.

Brake booster vacuum is greater than 7 psi (45kPa).

Transmission is in Drive.

Vehicle speed is less than 3 m.p.h. (5 km/h).

Engine speed is below 1,500 rpm.

Engine coolant temperature is less than 248 degrees F (120 degrees C).

No A/C compressor request from HVAC.

It was the recall work but they had to actually fix the issue rather than prevent it. Then realized my temp setting was on between cold and hot and it hadn't heated the car yet. After class I turned it to cold and it worked just fine
