Hi Nigel, Welcome to the forum, the stop/start will only work when your battery is at fully charged if it is slightly down then it turns itself off untill fully recharged.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

It also needs the engine to be warm enough, and other factors, like aircon on etc will keep the engine running.

You can't permanently turn off the stop/start on the juke - if you switch it off, it will reset next time you start the car. Aircon often does stop it from coming on, windscreen demist certainly will if you have that going.

Thanks for replying

I can see the off switch and I have not pushed it to stop.

Without putting a voltage meter on the battery how do I know it’s fully charged?

My phone charges even time I put it in my cradle will try it on way to work without changing phone and make sure everything is off.

I just drove an hour journey to work with radio only on and no time throughout the journey was I able to go into start stop.

@actd.
Whilst I do not have this model of car I have seen youtube videos which claim to switch this facility off on a permanent basis by removing or altering something in the engine bay which monitors if the bonnet is open or closed, if the sensors think the bonnet is open then the engine will not keep stopping until turned off.

If the sensor thinks the bonnet is open then that may affect the alarm too, most monitor the bonnet being opned.

There's no easy way to check the battery is charged enough for start stop, the ecu will have some obscure algorithm that decided based on voltage and running time.
There is a battery meter on one of the info displays if you press the d-mode along with all the rest of the useless info, like G force and torque output and quantum drive status.....

Is that turning the sensor that’s located near the front? Will look at this at lunch. Have seen the video but didn’t think that would work or anyone following these On YouTube as could do something damaging.
