It's to turn the stop/start off if you don't want to use it.
Mine is on all the time and I think it is an automatic choice when you start the car. The A button will turn the function off but you will probably have to press the button every time you start the car. Hope that helps.

As Kew said, it's to turn the start/stop off. It doesn't remain off all the time so it is a button to be pressed on start up if you do not wish the start/stop function to work.
I'm just about getting used to it ;)

if its right behind the handbrake switch its the auto hill hold function ,the stop/ start button is on the dash console .if you got into the Q£ gallery page 3 and look at my photo's daytona's phantom black there is a picture of both the switches , is this the one you mean ??

thanks daytona mine is the exact setup as your first picture, so its an auto hill hold button? how does that work , in my prevoius cars i usually had to keep my foot on the brake a bit longer to give me 2 seconds to pull away on a hill, but then isn't the brake button gonna do the same job most of the time?
looks like we have pretty similar setup vehicles , so i apologise now for all my questions that will be coming your way

if you leave it on all the time it just stops you rolling back on hills or creeping forward in traffic until you press the accelerator , no problems about all the questions thats what the forum is all about , another 3 weeks and mine is 12 months old , still love driving it

Still a baby

How are you celebrating the 1st birthday, nice drive in the country or a quiet night in Daytona?

I don't have auto hold but i did notice when i put the handbrake on at the lights etc it comes off itself which is good. Should really be called the fingerbrake now
