Stop-start issues with my 2014 VW Golf.

I have a 2014 Volkswagen Golf 1.6 TDI Bluemotion. The start-stop function doesn't work anymore. I keep getting an error just saying "error auto start stop". I was thinking maybe it's the battery that's low, but I'm not sure. I've read online that it should work in Eco mode, but I have yet to try it; was just wondering if you could give me some more information?
