For those fed up with stop/start.......a tip

Post by kodiaq » Sat Aug 10, 2019 11:35 am

Just for those of you new to Skoda or are not aware.........
When stopped with the engine cut out, at traffic lights for example or at a junction.
To restart the engine without the car moving to save pausing when the lights go green or when waiting to pull out of a junction..........
With your foot firmly on the foot brake or the auto handbrake applied turn the steering wheel very slightly in either direction and the engine will fire up.

Colin I was hoping for a way to disable it permanently. I always disable it when I remember to as it sometimes turns the engine off before I've stopped and rolling onto a roundabout I can get caught out.

I am led to believe that it can be turned off in the EU with an OBD unit. The dealer should be able to do this, but I bet they would refuse quoting the warranty at you.
