mine was doing this as well. Dealer ended up replacing the battery as the code the vehicle was giving as the reason the start/stop was defeated was "low main battery voltage". It has worked as designed ever since, plus the vehicle stays off WAYYYYY longer than it did when I first bought the vehicle.
There is a Topix bulletin recommending replacing the battery if the auto stop/start was not functional, so maybe a batch of suboptimal batteries is contributing to the problem. In fairness though I haven't had any issues with poor battery performance other than this.

Best bug ever! Unfortunately it came back after last service even though I had not advised of this fault... :(

I wish mine would develop this bug

I think I have a similar problem.

Since last update (phase 4), I think it is not working properly. I remember that before phase 4, the car was constantly stopping... (in different modes, ECO, Comfort, with air ON and OFF), and now it looks like it never works.

Last month, I stopped using the car for a few days (5-6) because I was on holidays... and when I wanted to use it again (after a week), I had a warning message saying "low battery". Then I used it and the warning dissapeard. Since then... i have not received this warning anymore, but the auto stop/start looks like it is not working.

Can someone help? Should I report it to my dealer? What is the bulletin number?

Thanks

Mine hasn’t worked all summer - I assumed it was because of the extra draw on the AC but it seemed different than that. I’m in FL and we always use the AC. Hope I got the bug and there’s no cure.

As it’s way too much work to press the off button each time I start the Velar 😀, I happen to agree with a few others - Best bug ever!

Mine also had stopped working last few months - took it to dealer today when they changed the car into winter tyres and they replaced the battery and now working again....

My Auto Stop/Start works fine but when activated is causing the Hill Assist to become inoperable.

Apparently there is an issue with the Torque Converter within the gearbox. It loses power when you take your foot off the brake in order to activate the Auto Stop/Start function but results in the Hill Assist not working and the vehicle rolls backwards until the engine starts and pulls forward.

Does anyone else have or has experienced this issue ?

Mine has also stopped working, first thing i used to do when getting in the car was to switch it off so it's saved me that hassle at least.

Had a low battery warning the other day so I wouldn't be surprised pretty if the two are related - it would also line up with a battery change fixing the problem.

Might buy myself a battery tester and see what it says.

Mine has been in the garage three times over the last year for this fault. The first two times it was put down to Low battery yet they refused to admit that it was faulty under warranty. Each time it worked for a few days and then gave up. Last week the third visit resulted in a gate way software update and so far it has continued working. So maybe it is just a software issue?
