Audi A1 Controls Driving Start/stop system
The start/stop system can help to save fuel and reduce CO2 emissions.
In start/stop mode, the engine is switched off automatically when the Audi A1 stops, e.g. at traffic lights. The ignition remains on during this stop phase. The engine is automatically started on demand.
The start/stop system is automatically activated each time you switch on the ignition.
Basic conditions for start/stop mode
- The driver's door must be closed.
- The driver's seat belt must be buckled.
- The bonnet must be closed.
- The Audi A1 must have been moving at over 4 km/h since the last stop.
- A trailer must not be hitched up to the Audi A1.
- Never let the car coast with the engine switched off. You could lose control of the Audi A1. This could result in an accident and cause serious injury.
- The brake servo and power steering only work when the engine is running. You need more strength to stop and steer the Audi A1 than you normally would.
- To avoid injury, make sure that the start/stop system is switched off before working in the engine compartment Link.
Always switch off the start/stop system Link before driving through water.
