Just purchased a 2019 Atlas SEL W Tech. So far love it. Had issue yesterday where it turned off everything when i put it in park. Hasn't happened since so, just gonna keep an eye out for it.

Yes. That's actually normal. If you have auto start/stop enabled, if you park the car it will "stop" and if you sit for more than a couple of minutes it will shut everything down. The car does it to save the battery. It even pops up a message on the screen to tell you it is shutting down to save battery. It can be annoying if you just stop to run into your house and you come back out and it is off. You either learn to get used to it, or learn to turn off auto start/stop when you are making a pit stop.

Welcome to the forum [email protected] :smile2:
I hear ya, I just got into the habit of pressing the off button as part
of my pre flight routine.


Again, Welcome and enjoy your SEL :wink2:

I can't tell you how many times I have "restarted" my car trying to turn it off, not realizing it already turned itself off. Now I am training myself to take my foot off the break when turning it off in the garage so that it doesn't restart.
