Auto Start Stop function display
Automatic engine stop and restart readiness
If the engine was stopped automatically by the Auto Start Stop function the indicator light on the multi-function display in the instrument panel will light up green.

No engine stop or restart readiness
If the Auto Stop function is not available or if no driver is detected in the vehicle after the engine has stopped automatically (brake pedal pressed and driver's door closed; for the Panamera GTS: driver’s seat belt fastened and driver’s door closed), the indicator light on the multi-function display in the instrument panel will light up yellow when the vehicle is stationary.

The Auto Start Stop system has detected that:

  • At least one precondition for stopping the engine automatically is not met. or
  • There is at least one exception for the Auto Start Stop function.

For information on preconditions for stopping the engine automatically:

Information
If the indicator light in the multi-function display continuously lights up yellow when the vehicle is stopped and if the engine does not stop regularly when the vehicle is stopped despite the fact that the preconditions for stopping the engine automatically are met, this may be an indication that the battery is weak.

  • Have the Auto Start Stop system checked the next time you visit the workshop.

Fault reporting
If there is a fault, the warning message "Start/ Stop mode deactivated" will appear on the multi-function display in the instrument panel.
