How to Disable Idle Stop & Go on Your Hyundai Palisade
The Hyundai Palisade comes equipped with the Idle Stop & Go (ISG) system, designed to reduce fuel consumption by automatically shutting down the engine when the vehicle is at a standstill, such as at a red light, stop sign, or in a traffic jam. Understanding how to control and disable this system can enhance your driving experience. Here's a comprehensive guide of how to disable idle stop & go on your Hyundai Palisade and why it’s important.
Idle Stop & Go System Overview
Before we jump into how to disable the ISG system, let’s make sure there’s a foundation of understanding. The ISG system operates by shutting down the engine when the vehicle speed decreases to 0 km/h, and the brake pedal is depressed with the shift lever in D (Drive) or N (Neutral). The auto stop indicator illuminates in green on the instrument cluster when the engine stops. However, certain conditions may prevent the ISG system from engaging, indicated by an orange ISG light on the dash. If the ISG light is blinking in yellow, it indicates a malfunction with the system. In this case, contact your Hyundai dealer for a thorough check.
Malfunction Causes include:
- Driver’s seat belt not fastened.
- Hood or driver’s door not closed properly.
- Vehicle not reaching a minimum speed of 5 km/h.
- A/C blower set at the highest speed.
- Vehicle on a grade of over 12% uphill or 5% downhill.
- Vehicle’s battery not sufficiently charged.
How to Restart the Engine
To restart the engine once the ISG system turns it off, simply lift your foot off the brake pedal. The engine automatically restarts when you release. Note that the ISG system defaults to the on position each time you start your vehicle. The location of the ISG OFF button may vary based on your model.
