Disable Auto Start/stop

Apologies if this is a silly question, but have been searching the forum without finding an answer.

I've just taken delivery of a 2017 RLine Plus V6 TDI with Bluemotion but I've been unable to find a way to turn off the Auto start/stop.

There should be a button I believe in the centre console to switch it off, but I don't appear to have one.

Also, from reading some of the previous posts, am I right in thinking that you can't turn it off permanently?

Thanks for any help!

With a little simple recoding you should be able to turn it off permanently. I'll see if I can find the thread on this.

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!]

Thanks for the response, I did see that solution which may be a longer term solution but I'm struggling to understand why there is no button to turn it on/off in my car.

The manual describes its functions but there is no dashboard location specfied and I haven't found it in the car settings either.

Not knowing where you are located makes it a bit harder to answer, but you say you have a 2017 R Line
If you were in Australia that would mean that you have the V8 Tdi which does not have Stop /Start and therefore no button required
If you were in the the USA then totally different answer
