Finished a 200 mile trip this morning . While almost home, I was stopped at a light and the auto start stop kicked in, stopped the engine, then immediately started back up and an error message appeared that "auto start stop unavailable. Service auto start stop". It didn't work after that.

I gotta tell you, I was thrilled! I thought I'd never have to push the off button again!

Ha, anyway when i shut off the vehicle and restarted, all was back to normal and no trace of the error message.

Aside from my disappointment and on a serious note, anyone had this happen and know why?

I’ll answer the ‘why’ first.
There are little creatures of mythical origins, controlled by a ruler named Tony in the lands of Fix It Again. Known as ‘electrical gremlins’ that come and go to cause havoc as they please..

Nasty little buggers.

There is however a magical spell you can cast called ‘Just Empty Every Pocket’ to keep the evil forces at bay.

I randomly got this message once and it went away. Jeep works fine and the auto start stop works when I activate it, but most most time it's disabled with the tazer mini setting. I thought maybe the pcm was seeing the tazer which caused message to appear.

Does anyone else that got this message also have the tazer installed?

@MattT69

All the Tazer JL in essence does, is do the ESS button press for you and no more... The Tazer JL disables nothing in regard to ESS... has no other effect on ESS.

With that said.... Message has absolutely nothing at all to do with the Tazer JL...
