You may have noticed that, on occasion, your 2019 Jeep Cherokee shuts off while driving--specifically, when you come to a stop for a few moments. This is start stop technology, a fuel economy feature designed to promote fuel efficiency and improve gas mileage. The feature uses an autostop and autostart/restart feature to cuts down on gas consumption while idling at a stop.



      I have to call this one out. I was driving yesterday on the freeway when the throttle stuck wide open. The stop/start light came on. I had to slam the brakes 3 times to get it to stop. I had a 2019 Jeep Cherokee and the same kind of thing happened only then I was not able to turn off the vehicle. I'll be taking my Compass in to the dealership today and will post back with the results. 3078 miles on it☹️

      I am fine with this system, but it need to remember the last state I put it in. When I turn it off, it needs to stay off till I turn it back on. That's an easy software fix, do it jeep!

      This is very dangerous. My 2019 Jeep Cherokee stopped on me 3 times in less than 5 minutes. Car stops at 45 mph some one could  jam me right in the back.  I will be find out how deactivate every function to this car.  It's so ridiculous not to mention embarrassing or return it...Purchased in August, less than 6 months of use at 4,000 miles.

      Does anyone know where the start/stop battery is located on this model? It's not under the passenger seat like previous year models.

      I have a 2015 with the cutoff switch. If a new car doesn’t have a cutoff switch I’m not buying-its a expensive worthless feature

      Parking with the start stop system on.
      1: Pull up to a parking spot, the car turns off when you stop.
      2: Put the car in park, the car starts.
      3: Then turn off your car and exit the vehicle.
      Just terrible.

      However, none of that would be a problem if the system would just remember the last state it was in. If it stayed off when you turned it off, I could live with it. Instead it is more annoying than anything.

      Propaganda. Start stop is just a bullshit feature so car companies can pretend they're saving the environment, but what they're really doing is cooking the books on gas mileage. Meanwhile, your car will wear out faster due to all the unnecessary starts. Win, win, win for the automotive industry.

      That's not the worst part, this will harm the actual engine itself.

      They put a beefed up starter and battery in the car.

      I have a 19 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Elite 2.0L Turbo....... start/stop is the worst feature ever made. I’m in Texas and everytime it stops at a stoplight, it’s like the heater comes on. Nothing worse than having to stop, but let’s rub it in your face by turning off the AC while you waiting. JEEP, please give us an option in the menu to permanently disable the start/stop feature... it’s only a few pushes of the button on your end, help us out please!!!!
