    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.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    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.
