I'm sure that given enough time I could master the art of 'left foot braking' but for now it's a no, no, scary stuff....highlights just how quick the vehicle can stop!

Update; Following on from my post above, it seems Skoda can be clever when it wants to be. I've found that despite me having the 'auto hold' 'off' the original 'hill hold' control still works in the background, just as it does on our ageing Golf.....nice.

Hi I too hate stop start and was switching it off at every start but you some times forget and then that delay restarting IS dangerous.

Solution was have it off permanently (only 10 pound UK)

I bought a Carista OBD adaptor for 10 quid (here was $19 aud) plus post. This plugs into a pink socket under the dash drivers side. You download the app to your Android or apple phone and the first month is free and fully functional. (its is $53 a year or $15 a week after that but once stop start is gone why bother?)

It connects by Bluetooth and does lots of customisation (depends on what's fitted) and dead easy to use. Just remember to cancel the subscription in Play Store before the trial is up.

Two methods to get rid of it. Method two will not work. Method one you set the voltage to 12.1v and when the sys checks the voltage is always too low so stop start fails to activate. There is even a stop/start warning light that come on in MFD re stop/start symbol with a circle and slash through it telling you stop/start didn't activate, great!

For 10 quid I did pay that and worth every penny.

There are other ODB devises and apps but I found this the cheapest and easiest.

Can your OBD also make the passenger side door mirror dip on reverse on a car without electric drivers seat?

Hi Colin I have the electric seats so the dipping works but don't know if that's possible via the OBD. Can set a different dip for all three profiles. I did put the tacho/speedo sweep needles on start up. Put the rear leds on as DRL. and some other stuff including changing the auto indicator from 3 clicks to four. It does the diagnostics too and something about emissions but we don't use that here in Oz. My main gripe was getting rid of the start/stop.
