Hi we have just had a swan neck tow bar With 13 pin electrics fitted on our 2014 antara SE. Since fitted the start/stop has not worked at all. Why could this be? The towbar fitter is coming to check on Monday but is happy all fitted correctly.

Thanks I've read through them and understand reasons why might be working but wondered if it could be directly linked to towbar fitting. Any ideas please? Obviously will know more of works once he's disconnected towbar on Monday as if works then must be direct problem ?

I hope they fitted something like this kit which just plugs into plug under vehicle near rear exhaust back box so that reversing sensors. rear fog light. Are switched off and you get green tow bar symbol come up on dash when trailer or caravan are hitched up. Plus in this kit it comes with the extra cable relay so fridge can be running when towing.

Surely the most likely thing is that the battery has been run down during testing of the lights etc. If the battery is not in a high enough state of charge then the Stop/Start will not work.

Mine too - I only just recently realised that the two things are connected.

The owner's manual certainly confirms this:
'Stop-start system
The stop-start system helps to save fuel and to reduce the exhaust emissions. When conditions allow, it
switches off the engine as soon as the vehicle is at a low speed or at a standstill, e.g. at a traffic light or in a traffic jam. It starts the engine automatically as soon as the clutch is depressed. A battery sensor ensures that an Autostop is only performed if the battery is sufficiently charged for a restart.'

I never use the thing but others have reported that the feature fails to work during a DPF regen.
