Has your vehicle auto stopped and not restarted? This can happen and leave you stuck at a stoplight or stop sign! This can be especially dangerous during rush hour.
Auto Idle Stop will cause your battery to prematurely fail. Starting and restarting the vehicle is the highest amount of drain on your battery. The battery is not being charged during idle stop due to the engine shutting off and not turning the alternator. Battery replacement can cost as much as $350 due to the upgraded AGM battery needed on all Auto Idle Stop models.
