Can anyone tell me if they've figured out how to turn this off permanently?! For the life of me I can't figure it out, but if I have to i'll keep pressing the off button every time I turn my car on I will.
yes it defaults to normal. So it’s either a button/dial turn each time if you don’t want auto engine stop. I understand people would rather purchase a device to permanently disable the feature, but the standard disable button is so easily accessible for me.. so close to the engine start button. It’s not really an issue for me..ohhh i'm giving this a go on my way home! Next question then, do you have to put it in sports mode every time you turn on the car?

It won't turn off if there is a demand such as A/C, fan, heated seat, heated steering wheel, etc. Or maybe if your stereo is turned up loud and it needs extra juice .I have noticed that over the last couple of days my auto start/stop doesn't work from time to time (typically I'm in Normal mode and I switch over to Eco when I'm leaving for work). I have turned the switch on/off and there is no change (it stays running) then all of sudden yesterday it started working again and it was working this AM for a little bit, I pulled up to a stop light and it stayed running. I turned the switch off & on, no change.
Cool thing about that "defeat" module that plugs into the OBDII connector -- at least the one I saw -- it really just defaults the button to OFF on startup. It otherwise functions the same, you have access to auto start/stop enabled, then disabled anytime you want by pressing the button.I got used to mine and learned how to control it.
Like If I was expecting a drag race off a stop light.
Pull up to a stop, engine stops, I wait for the right time,
Turn lane next to me goes off, I'm next,
I ease up on the brake, the engine starts but before I roll off I re apply the brake and now I'm cocked and ready to fire.
(The Auto stop/start will not reset until you go up to 5 or 6 mph)
Other thing I read In here, attach any low drain thing, small light, to the rear USB and It will keep the engine running. But I'm not that Into it.
