As I often do on the way home, on a long stretch of an avenue with many traffic lights, I activated autopilot to let it do the stopping and going. This time, however, in a stream of cars at a traffic light, an internal alert signal sounded, and the message "select drive to proceed" (or something to that effect) was displayed. Also, on the driver's display, there was an unusual red graphic in the center, but I was to hurried to avoid impeding traffic to take a note of it. I pressed the brake, selected drive, and proceeded as normal.
What happened? Does the car time out when stopped in autopilot?
