Ford Escape: Starting and Stopping the Engine / Automatic Engine Stop

What Is Automatic Engine Stop

Automatic engine stop is a feature that switches the engine off if it has been idling for an extended period to help you save fuel.

How Does Automatic Engine Stop Work

Automatic engine stop turns the engine off. The ignition also turns off in order to save battery power. Before the engine shuts down, a message appears in the information display showing a timer counting down. If you do not intervene within 30 seconds, the engine shuts down. Another message appears in the information display to inform you that the engine has shut down in order to save fuel. Start your vehicle as you normally do.
