How to Use Acura Automatic Idle Stop

Acura TLX Interior

The Acura Automatic Idle Stop feature will automatically shut off your vehicle's engine while it's idling to maximize fuel efficiency. When the feature is active, your vehicle's engine functions will stop automatically when it is in idle and the brake pedal is pressed. The engine restarts when the acceleration pedal is pressed or the steering wheel is turned. The entire process is seamless and can save fuel without impeding your drive in any way.

Does Automatic Idle Stop work Continuously?

Automatic Idle Stop is featured in select Acura models and works in most conditions. It may not work if the de-fog mode or Snow Mode is activated, or if the battery is recharging.

How Do You Turn Off Automatic Idle Stop?

The Automatic Idle Stop feature is automatically engaged when your vehicle is turned on, but it can easily be deactivated if you would rather not use it. All you need to do is press the "A-OFF" button on your vehicle's dashboard. The Automatic Idle Stop warning light will turn yellow when the feature is turned off. Keep in mind that the feature will turn back on when you shut off your vehicle and restart it.

The Automatic Idle Stop feature is very useful for those who want to improve the fuel efficiency of their Acura vehicle.
