engineers have more than 25 patents pending on the control systems for the Auto Start-Stop on the upcoming 2013 Fusion. They model all of the electrical loads to make sure the battery will have enough power for a good restart if items like lights, heaters and defoggers are on before switching off the engine.
When the temperatures get steamy like they are here in Michigan this week they monitor, the cabin temperature, humidity and the outlet temperature of the A/C evaporator to help decide when to restart so that the cabin stays comfortable. #2013fordfusion
