I have it in my car which is a manual and I have no issues with it. Dont always understand why it works when it does and why it starts up again for no apparent reason. Haven't driven a s-tronic with it to compare but on a manual its never been an issue. Much rather find a way to keep the Hill Hold Assist on by default, I keep forgetting to put it on and then find myself rolling backwards
I thought with the autos, you have to really push on the brake to get it working? i.e. you can sit in traffic, with a light brake and it won't shut the car off? so you need to press the brake right down to get the system to kick in?
also... what happens when you're at lights, leave the car in drive, put the handbrake on, and take your foot off the brake?? does that turn the car off, or hold it sitting like a normal auto car does (or should... not many auto drivers seem to do this, prefer to sit with their ****** foot on the brakes!! grrrr!!! lol )
Looks like Start/Stop is well locked down on the B8.5.
I tried de-activating it (I have VCDS) under the engine controller, but it throws a DIS warning, and then re-activates when the ignition
is next cycled. I am also unable to find the start/stop temperature or voltage settings under the CAN gateway or engine controllers described in the links. I'll keep looking when I have more time to play.........................but it isn't looking promising tbh. For the record......can you tell I side on the it's a complete PITA having to remember to press the button every time camp. ****
It's true the S-Tronic re-starts if you engage the e-brake. I can only guess it is something to do with auto release pull away sensing which works off the ABS sensing and therefore require a running engine (bit like the HHA) ?
