Disabling Stop-Start system

Post by Stiguan » Fri Feb 22, 2019 5:14 pm

I really dislike the stop-start function on my Tiguan. I've bought an electronic module that, when fitted to the car allows the last stop-start button setting to be retained.



To fit this, I need to get access to the wires behind the stop-start switch. Does anyone know how to get access to the switch wires without breaking anything?

It seems easier to do with it your mobile phone/laptop software OBDeleven, or just push the Stop/Start button every time you get in. Personally I have just got used to it after many vehicles with it over several years and it now seems quite normal to me.

Great Find, thanks.

I don't want to turn stop-start off completely. This module will let me choose whether to have it or not, without having to use a phone/tablet.

That's why there is a button beside the gear lever, to do exactly that.

I found it after following a link on another forum. It's on eBay and you need to search for "NEW! Start Stop Memory module with SERVICE MODE! / Start-Stop SSA memory". It comes from Hungary, and it arrived amazingly quickly.

Direct link is https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Start-St ... 2749.l2649

Each to their own, CNC. I don't want to push a button to unlock my car each time I use it, so I choose to use KESSY instead of the keyfob. Likewise, I don't want to push a button to disable stop-start button each time I use the car, so a memory function will fit my needs perfectly..

I had stop/start on my Golf GT before I got my Tiguan, and I always switched it off as soon as I started the car. Since getting the Tiguan I’ve just continued to do it. It’s like putting on your seatbelt, I don’t even think about it.
And the beauty is that it hasn’t cost me a penny !
