You can't force it to be permanently on, or for that matter permanently off. Every time you cycle the ignition, the start & stop is enabled by default. While enabled, the car can choose to automatically disable it for a while if the engine is not up to the operating temperature or if the a/c needs to run. The button on the console, or the option in the menu only allows you to disable start & stop until you cycle the ignition again.

I don't have this feature in my Ghibli, but do in a newer Jeep. As noted, it defaults 'on' with ignition, but I frequently see a dash warning that the battery voltage is not high enough to engage s/s. The battery is just a few years old and functioning perfectly normally for starting and every other requirement, just not the threshold required for s/s to activate.

This is from a 2019 with MTC+ but should provide some insights ... I don't have the feature on my Ghibli.

Ha ha ha. Good info. I'll have to compare with my Jeep manual. So basically, the manual essentially says that than under no circumstances will this feature operate while the sky is blue, water is wet, the earth revolves around the sun and the laws of physics remain in effect. Cool. Always helps to know where you stand. 😉

Just joking, at Maserati's expense.
There are literally 20 bullet points on when the system Won't activate, that you would hardly ever find yourself in a situation where s/s was able to work (kidding).

I found that if the car sits for a week or two (which is regrettably typical as I don't have a lot of places to go lately), the battery loses some charge and the S/S will not work until I run the battery up to full charge. I have also noticed that when the engine is cold it does not work. So there are safeguards built in, but I am trying to make it a habit to disable it whenever I start the car. I find S/S annoying as ****.

So after owning my 2017 Ghibli S for just about a year now, the start/Stop feature finally turned on! I happened to have the AC off and was driving through town and it randomly activated and kept working. Not sure if that helps you but I was convinced the feature wasn’t available on my car up until this week.
