Start/Stop option to disable it?

Does anyone know if Start/Stop function can be set to off as default instead of me having to turn it off every time I start the engine?

Sorry if this was mentioned here before, I'm new to this forum.

I just took delivery of MY16 V6 TDI and slowly getting to know the car and with that I'm sure I'll have plenty of other questions so please be patient with me

Thanks

Hi bion, welcome.

Ok, we will be patient as I remember asking where the battery was in one of my very earliest posts, so........

Had you used the "Search" facility and typed "Stop/start" in the "Search" option near the top of the screen you would have come up with this recent thread:

https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f9...op-223698.html

which I think answers your question.

I suggest "Search" is your first port of call and if that doesn't answer your query ask by all means as we all learn by the wealth of information that fellow member have on this forum.

You have to be joking. Why would anybody apply this Heath Robinson contraption to their very expensive modern motor car and risk compromising the finicky electronics?

Chaser may be one of the few people on Earth who can make it work. Good luck to the average DIY guy.

Why would you want to turn it off I like the fact that while I am in a city commute I'm not adding to green house gases while stopped

Basically because it can be dangerous. Stop at an intersection, motor turns off, see a reasonable but short space, give the pedal a nudge and instead of instantly briskly moving forward to safely join into the traffic there is a pause and stumble as the car dribbles into the traffic and you have to decide -stop and maybe get nailed from behind or gun it after it finally wakes up and make a noisy exit. That's my experience with a Golf loaner anyway. John

Some T4 owners report their car engine is turned off before they have even stopped which then makes it doubly dangerous if you suddenly need to power on.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]

No issues from me, as I said I like it, it has a relatively fast start my foot leaves the brake pedal and by the time it hits the accelerator it's going - no issues

Thanks all I'll just stick with turning it off manually every time I turn the engine on.

In respect to green house gases as someone said....if was really interested in saving the planet I'd buy Prius not V6 )

Yes, it can.

The good news is that it is possible to disable fart/stop using VCDS if you want to.

Here is the link:
