Your jeep is not functioning normally. It needs to be fixed, or you are eventually going to be left in a walmart parking lot or the side of the highway waiting on a flatbed.My dash message recently displayed that the start stop is not available and to get it serviced... BUT the Jeep is functioning normally. I just got back from a 500 mile mountain trip with no issues.
My question, should I take it to the dealership to fix? What is the downside of the start/stop not working...
FYI: I have the I4-2L Turbo with the 48v e-torque system. I also have installed the Tazer mini for its other custom options but I am not sure if the tazer start/stop memory setting affect the Jeep when that option is NOT active.

That would mean that when the tazer disabled the ESS setting that would in theory also leave everyone stranded somewhere someday... so that doesn't make sense. PLUS I have the ESS deactivated most of the time through the tazer setup.
Last time I activated it manually it worked, so my thought was that the tazer was causing the pcm to show that it was not able to be used. But now I don't get any messages either way. So maybe a computer override error.... we'll see if it shows up again. It's been a while....
Just get the Smart Stop Start mentioned before. It was the first mod I did to my Jeep back in February. Turned it off and haven't turned it back on.How do you permanently get rid of it and no idiot lights or warnings, with out buying a tazer. Etc.
I think that’s the “etc.” he didn’t want to buy or install. You’re correct though, that is the most reliable and cheap way to disable it.
@SwissStephThanks to this forum, I discovered many problems on this new Jeep (JL) and thanks to this forum (and of course all the interventions of the members) I managed to "fix" some problems or argue with FCA and their catastrophic after sales service.
Having the 2.2 Diesel engine and my Jeep being of "late 2018" I tested the starting with the auxiliary battery disconnected and I even put a topic https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/start-test-with-dead-aux-battery.78979/ to draw the attention of the owners of 2.2 Diesel of a possible problem. Luckily my 2018 has no problem starting if the AUX battery is sick, and I'm relieved!
If only there was a "simple" and clear solution to permanently remove the AUX battery and put everything on the main one I would finally be relaxed for my future. I doubt that this is feasible so I will have to live with this "unprofessional design" from FCA
True.... I'm using the term ESS as a shorthand for 'engine start stop' but I clearly mentioned I have the etorque version, so I don't have that mini aux battery but rather the more robust 48vaux. battery. I should have used ass for auto start stopYou don’t understand ESS whatsoever. It’s very obvious.
