    Now reading around a bit, I've come to know that Mazda's stop start system is a bit funny. But I genuinely don't understand why mine doesn't work. I drive 15 to work and back each day, a mix of city driving and dual carriageways so plenty of time to charge up the battery. Yet whenever I look at...

    I bought an Axela 2009 2L iStop which has two batteries 7 months ago. Recently the iStop indicator started blinking and now the battery is dead too. I'm not sure the installed batteries are correct. Does anybody know the correct battery specification for this model or where to find it on the...

    Hello, I probably got the wrong category, but I have been having issues with i-stop in my 2015 Mazda 2 Genki (Aware this is a site for Mazda 3 but out of ideas currently). Started with it turned off when I was in reverse one night and the car started back straight on (heating was on in the car)...

    Hi, today I drove a Skyactiv G 122 Hp Hatchback version with manual 6 speed gearbox. Everything was smooth, except the i-stop: it reacts too slow: if I depress the clutch it takes 2 sec to start the engine...(I think this is not beacuse the low mileage of the test car) This is way more quickly...

    I no this may sound a bit strange, but I have a question I no how istop works, but when I get home and pull up outside my house, I don’t get chance to turn the engine of cause istop turns it off for me. Is it ok to leave the car like that, seems stupid pressing the clutch to restart the engine...

    Hi guys, new first-time Mazda owner here. I recently purchased a 2011 Mazda 3 (Axela Sport) with skyactiv and i-stop. I've seen 2 types of engines and battery setups with the i-stop system. The MZR I tested first had 2 batteries, a small and a large one whereas the one I bought (skyactiv) has...

    hi all. is there any criteria that need to be met so that the I-stop become active? normally, the engine shuts down when you press the brake deeper. but some times, the I-stop icon does not light up on the dash board or stop my engine when I deeply press the brake even though I have activated it...

    Already reported to Mazda 2 days ago. Please turn your istop off if driving any manuals... likely going to be a global recall.

    Hello. I have installed iDatalink to remote start on my CX5 and everything working very well. I just have a small problem with iStop, it not working if car start by remote by Lock-Lock-Lock on OME key (it still working if started by car's Start/Stop button).

    I've been doing many short journeys recently and noticed the iStop isn't operating since the blue battery symbol doesn't illuminate on the status display. I just did a 15 mile round trip and the iStop still isn't operating. I have the Q85 special iStop battery. Three hours after driving the...

    I've replaced the bose amp with a kicker 800.5 amp, and it is all great with one issue. When i-stop shuts down the engine, when it restarts the engine, the amp loses power for a moment and the sound cuts out for a few seconds. I've tried tapping the grey "acc" wire coming out of the TAU, and...

    I now prefer to turn off i-stop (using the i-stop button) on my new Mazda 3 since I don’t do much stop/start driving. There appears to be no way to configure iStop in the car’s configuration menu. Is it possible to configure i-stop (e.g. by using the dealer setup software) so the i-stop button...

    I have manual transmission. i-Stop activates when in neutral, there may be some other rule about being stopped or nearly stopped etc. It de-activates when I press the clutch and engage a gear. How does it work for automatic transmissions? Furthermore, how does it know when to restart the...

    I'm reading the Mazda 3 Owner's Manual prior to taking delivery of a new Mazda 3 2.0 petrol manual (UK version). After the car is stopped via i-stop, the engine restarts automatically when you depress the clutch pedal or start to release it. The manual then says "NOTE The engine restart timing...
