Idle Stop Start technology can be incorporated into both petrol and diesel vehicles with a manual or automatic powertrain. It may not be possible to identify whether a vehicle incorporates Idle Stop Start technology, as manufacturers will not always promote this technology on engine components. Some vehicle manufacturers include a device on the dash board which enables the Idle Stop Start system to be deactivated as required.
To avoid fitting a conventional or incorrect battery into an Idle Stop Start vehicle, run through the following checklist.
- Does your vehicle turn off whilst stationary?
- Can you see an Idle Stop Start Symbol on the dash board?
- Do you have a switch that allows you to disable the Idle Stop Start function as required?
- Check the battery that is fitted, is it marked as an ISS AGM or ISS EFB battery?
