Stop/Start failed. Died at an intersection
I was lucky. Didn't block the whole intersection, but only 1 lane.
Stopped in front of a traffic light. I was the 1st vehicle of the line. The starter didn't start the engine when traffic light be green. The message of the vehicle guided me to turn to Park, and to push the start. I did many times, short push, long push. I could hear the starter kicked in, but the engine refused to start. I stuck there. Turned on emergent flashers.
I felt so frustrating and nervous about the car I purchased this year. Nice people tried helping to push the car to a parking spot, but I could not get it into neutral gear. Even though, I could turn the button it to neutral position. It was not real neutral. we could not push it. I tried to disconnect the battery. But I could not do it without the right wrench by the f**king new design. My son started crying. I called towing. I called my wife to get my son. More kind people tried to help me. one person even tried to towing my car away with his towing strap. But we abandoned because there is no towing hook found on the car.
Finally, my wife arrived and rode my son to daycare.
I went back into the car, and calmed down a little bit. I tried to turned the vehicle off. Brake. Turing to Parking. Pushing start/stop button. I successfully turned the vehicle off. Took a deep breath, turned on the vehicle. Everything back in normal. I run the car away from the intersection, and called cancelling the towing service. The whole process took my more than half an hour.
Hate Auto stop start.
