More and more new vehicles are employing automatic idle stop and start systems. Rather than wasting gas sitting at a red light or stuck in traffic, the Engine Auto Stop/Start system will shut down your Buick vehicle’s engine when the car is stationary without affecting other essentials, such as air conditioning or the headlights. While this technology is certainly helpful in saving fuel and cutting back on emissions, the system can be quiet the annoyance to some drivers who want to hit the ground running. That’s why the expert solutions specialists at our Longview area Buick dealer are here with some handy tips and a detailed video below to help you disable Auto-Stop in your 2020 Buick!

Take Command of Your Buick Vehicle On the Streets Near Longview

Some new Buick vehicles for sale at our dealership serving Longview have a button on the console to easily disable the system manually. If your vehicle lacks this button, however, simply follow the instructions below to turn off Engine Auto Stop/Start in your 2020 Buick vehicle:

  • First, locate the PRNDL switch in your ride.
  • Next, hold your gear shifter and shift your vehicle into “L” or low gear.
  • Finally, grab your gear shifter again and shift all the way up to the seventh gear.
  • There will be no visual cue on your dashboard, but you can now freely drive your Buick vehicle without fear of automatic stops. It’s that easy!

It’s important to note that the Engine Auto Stop/Start system will limit the frequency of automatic stops in certain conditions. These vehicle conditions may include low car battery, inadequate vehicle speed, or an engaged climate control system, which requires the engine to run based on the climate control or defog settings.

No matter how you choose to drive your 2020 Buick vehicle, the team at McKAIG Chevrolet Buick, a Dealer FOR The People®, is standing by to assist you with all your vehicle questions. Feel free to contact our team for more expert advice!
