minimoke: I have an issue with mine that someone might be able to help with.   Trundling along and the green i stop light comes on the dashboard so presumably all required qualifiers are met (temperature right / no air con or demist etc). Get to a stop and hit the brakes. pedal pushed down, wheels straight ahead, no moving steering wheel and I Stop light goes out but no idlel stop. Move away from stop and light doesn't come back on. When i stop and manually turn the engine off.  turn it back on again and drive away the light comes balk on but same issue at the next stop. So its seems ready to work but for some reason doesnt  - any ideas?

Which engine is in your car?

2.0l petrol with skyactiv

We have iStop on our Mazda 3 (SP25). 

I have always found it works just fine. If I: -

1) Drive into the park
2) Apply brake (i-Stop kills engine)
3) Put the car into park
4) Take foot off brake (engine stays off)
5) Press stop button (electronics shut down).
6) Exit car and press lock button

Works every time.  I don't have to do anything fast slow or otherwise. As far as I can tell the hand brake is irrelevant.

Note that park-selected and brake-applied are conditions required to start the engine.

If you turn i-Stop off manually then things can go a little squirrelly.  I've also noticed that i-stop won't work when the engine low temperature indicator is displayed.  I haven't tested high temperature yet innocent
