Expert:  Kevin replied 5 days ago.

ok so as I'm sure your away start-stop is the system that is used to reduce emissions and fuel economy when in start-stop traffic or when waiting at junctions. The start-stop system monitors many different inputs to ensure if it shuts the engine off it's confident the engine can be restarted. There are many different inputs required from the vehicle from the battery voltage to a clutch position switch. The vehicle can still be driven but will need to be connected to a diagnostic scan tool to see exactly why the system has been shut down. With the age of the vehicle, it should still be covered under warranty with the manufacturer.
