Auto-Stop not working 2013 X3 35i

Just noticed my Auto Stop stopped working and of course, the button on the dash is not set to off. Anyone have any suggestions?

What's the temperature outside?
Auto Start-Stop won't activate below 3 degrees celsius (about 37 fahrenheit)

Thanks. It's been cold. I'll see if it works when it gets warmer. Should it work around 40 or higher?

Not true. I know this is in the specs. This morning it was 28F and Start/Stop was functional in mine.
I believe, the 37F limit is for the INSIDE TEMPERATURE not the outside. My car was pulled out of the garage which is usually 10 degrees higher than the outside temp. Just the guess but there could be also another criteria that not published.

Low temps and battery load... did you have the seat heaters on, blower fan, heated steering wheel, lights, etc. ?

Maybe your ambient temperature sensor hadn't cooled down yet. When I pull out of heated underground parking into -10 degree weather, the 3 degree temperature warning doesn't chime for 3-6 blocks.

In either case, OP, it could be any one of 20+ things that stops it from turning on.
There's a list here

If you go to the EffecientDynamics screen and come to a stop it will tell you why it didn't stop. Climate, battery, driver selection, etc. Could give you an idea.
