    Talking Vw tiguan 2 litre diesel year 2012 all wheel drive.

    START, STOP. HI ALL, my Tiguan has decided to start up on its on battery, when I drive down to the local red traffic lights I stop the vehicle. The engine cuts out as it should, I do not touch the clutch pedal nor do I touch anything else in the vehicle in fact I fold my arms, my Tiguan starts up always before the lights go green?

    Do you like the stupid Stop/Start system?

    You could check the settings with VAG-COM\VCDS.

    Artificial intelligence, the car knows the lights are about to change...

    Seriously, get a code read done on ALL the cars systems but this is a known issue caused by a failing battery, if the battery is running down the ECU will restart the engine.

    HI CRASHER, i noticed recently there is a slight delay when i press the clutch to start, could this clutch actuator be playing up something is extremely sensitive and is sending the signal to the starter motor, the tiguan 12 volt battery is perfect, please note the vehicle will start on its on bat if i am using the stop sta system, i have vcds but can i isolate the stop start permanently. thank you. boscher.

    The stop start will not function in extremely cold temperatures. On my car an extremely cold temperature has been redefined through VCDS as 50 degress C.

    On mine (and on many others I suspect) there is a very handy button installed by VW to enable me to switch that abomination off.
    It will default to on but switching it off again each time couldn't be simpler. Just like putting on your seat belt and I was going to use the clunk clic............ there but I started to feel a little sick and a large angry.

    You should see what it does to the flywheel ring gear, never seen ring gear wear like it in 40 years!
