I hate the start/ stop on my 2016 Cherokee

Is there anyway to disable the start/stop feature on my 2016 Cherokee Limited?

From what i found out NO. Just push the ( A ) button everytime you start up the jeep.

There is no way to disable it other than to push the "A" button every time you start the vehicle... as Jim stated above.

curious, what is this feature you speak of? I have a 2014 GC and the only thing I can think of is when I stop on a hill, put it in park and release the brake, it rolls back a couple inches. Not enough to hit anything but when your wife is standing in the open door with one leg in, one leg out, she sure let me know when the A-frame konked her head!

It's in reference to the engine stop/start (ESS) feature.

Re: I hate the start/ stop on my 2016 Cherokee

I believe all cars with the hated Start/Stop feature always default to enabled each time it is started up. My Mercedes does it also. Even when programming the custom driving modes, it enables every time the car is started. A Mercedes tech told me that is a federal requirement. It's a way for the manufacturers to squeeze a bit more mileage for the EPA and CAFE standards. It may appear on all cars within a couple of years. In the meantime, until someone figures out how to hack the system, we have to press the A button to turn it off each time we get into the car. YUK!

Re: I hate the start/ stop on my 2016 Cherokee

That is why I purchased a 2015 leftover WK2 w/o the ESS and still has the 5 year 100,000 power-train warranty. Plus saved a few thousand with zero interest for 5 years and $4900+ in rebates and discounts at the end of February. Timing is everything!

Re: I hate the start/ stop on my 2016 Cherokee

I find I can regulate the Stop/Start with just brake pressure. If I hold the brakes lightly at the light, the engine never shuts off. Usually I pressure harder to get the shutoff feature, because I like the idea of saving gas.

No, no, no. Electronic Start Stop in an enhancement across the lineup for 2016. 2015 3.6 or 5.7 Hemi = no start/stop
