Stop/Start feature..

Post by Potsy » Wed Apr 17, 2019 8:25 am

Hi

I am not a fan of this feature in my auto T roc, usually turn it off soon after starting up (or after the first time it activates if I forget)

I find it kicks in way too soon, almost before the car even comes to a halt sometimes.

On my Golf it wasn't a problem due to being manual and having to put into neutral before it switched off.

Is there a way to deactivate it like you can with the Lane Assist?

Not in the car currently so am being lazy and asking here :D

The button near the A/C controls turns it off. It should be to the left of the parking sensors button with a little A on it I believe. Don't have a picture to hand but hope that helps!

I think Potsy is alredy doing that, but is looking for way to disable Stop/Start so as not to have to use the switch every time after starting.

If that is the case, I think the only way to do that is through something like OBDEleven or what not

It's crazy you can't turn it off, along with those annoying LED daytime running lights. Never needed lights in bright daylight before!

Thanks Conor, but as Impala says I'm looking more for a permanent deactivation.

Doesn't look like it's possible without a bit of messing about which I'm not too keen on doing.

Strange how it lets you turn off some things but not others.

There is no way to disable it, even with using OBD11. You can switch it off each time you start the car, but then it will reset itself when you switch the ignition off.

On my Audi S3, I bought an aftermarket unit that fitted behind the switch that remembered how you last left it set - so had the (wretched feature) off all the time. The company I used don't do it for the T-ROC yet - but I am "in discussions" with them about the possibility.

Interesting post ... I was going to suggest removing the battery, but that seemed a bit drastic :lol:

I wonder if the coasting function also dependent on battery charge level. :?
