This
message
appears
when
specific
conditions
are
not
met
during
a
Stop
phase.
The
Start/Stop
system
will
not
be
able
to
restart
the
engine. The
engine
must
be
started
with
the
START

There
is
a

corrected.
Brakes
General
information
You
can
apply
the
vehicle's
brakes
using
the
brake
pedal.
Operating
noise
Noises
may
occur
when
braking
depending
on
the
speed,
braking
force,
and
outside
conditions
such
as
temperature
and
humidity.
Braking
effect
The
response
time
from
the
brakes
depends
on
the
weather
and
environmental
conditions.
To
ensure
the
optimal
braking
effect,
the
brake
sys-
tem
is
cleaned
at
regular
intervals.
This
is
done
by
applying
the
brake
pads
to
the
brake
rotors
for
a
short
period
of
time
when
driving
at
high
speeds
when
the
windshield
wipers
are
switched
on.
If
the
brake
system
becomes
damp,
for
example
after
driving
in
heavy
rain,
the
braking
effect
may
be
delayed.
Other
factors
that
could
temporarily
increase
the
response
time
of
the
brakes
include:
Wet
conditions
Low
temperatures,
ice,
and
snow
Roads
covered
in
salt
Dirty
brake
pads
Corrosion
Corrosion
may
form
on
the
brake
rotors
if
there
is
no
heavy
braking,
if
the
vehicle
is
not
driven
for
long
periods
of
time,
or
if
the
vehicle
is
not
driv-
en
frequently
or
for
long
distances.
In
this
case,
838
braking
heavily
several
times
while
driving
at
high
speeds
can
clean
the
brake
rotors
> A\.
Brake
pads
New
brake
pads
do
not
achieve
their
full
braking
effect
during
the
first
250
miles
(400
km).
They
must
be
“broken
in”
first.
However,
you
can
com-
pensate
for
the
slightly
reduced
braking
force
by
pressing
firmly
on
the
brake
pedal.
Avoid
heavy
braking
during
the
break-in
period.
Brake
pad
wear
depends
largely
on
the
way
the
vehicle
is
driven
and
on
operating
conditions.
Brake
pad
wear
increases
when
driving
frequently
in
the
city
or
short
distances
or
when
using
a
very
sporty
driving
style.
ZA
WARNING
Only
apply
the
brakes
for
the
purpose
of
cleaning
the
brake
system
when
road
and
traffic
conditions
permit.
You
must
not
en-
danger
other
road
users
and
increase
the
risk of
an
accident.
Due
to
the
risk of
injury,
only
have
an
au-
thorized
Audi
dealer
or
authorized
Audi
Service
Facility
work
on
the
brake
system.
Incorrect
repairs
could
impair
the
function.
Never
let
the
vehicle
roll
while
the
engine
is
stopped
because
this
increases
the
risk
of
an
accident.
During
automatic
braking
maneuvers,
the
brake
pedal
may
move
downward
automati-
cally.
To
reduce
the
risk
of
injury,
do
not
place
your
foot
under
the
brake
pedal.
C)
Note
Never
let
the
brakes
“rub”
by
pressing
the
pedal
lightly
when
braking
is
not
actually
necessary.
This
can
cause
the
brakes
to
over-
heat
and
increases
braking distance
and
causes
wear.
Observe
the
important
information
for
driv-
ing
downhill
>
page
91.
This
especially
ap-
plies
when
towing
a
trailer.

Tips
If
you
retrofit
your
vehicle
with
a
front
spoil-
er,
wheel
covers
or
similar
items,
make
sure
