automatic stop start

Post by spitstick » Fri Jul 13, 2018 9:51 am

Having just sold my freelander after 5 years and a trouble free 140000ks of very enjoyable driving I have just bought an SE Disco Sport.
Very impressed so far especially on dirt roads and corrugations. the suspension is very impressive.
However one thing that is giving me diarrhoea is the stop start.
Any body out there can give me advice on stopping it from working permanently.
I'm in Tasmania by the way.

Can't be turned off permanently, as it's included in the calculations of the official emissions numbers. You'll just have to get used to reaching over and pressing the button to temporarily disable it at the start of every journey. In fact, I hated it at first but learned to tolerate it, and now actually miss it when it stops working, which it does every six months or so until the dealer resets it at the service! So you may be lucky and it'll stop working by itself :D

You soon get to appreciate it, when it doesn't stop and you're stuck at lights or in traffic and watch the fuel economy numbers drop...

If you have traffic queues. In Tasmania. Perhaps not.

Mine is broken, perhaps why it needs oil servicing every 8 k. But it's all down to my driving style lol

Eventually you just get used to turning it off immediately after starting the engine, just like putting your seatbelt on

There is a button on the dash, just press it for off?

Correct, you have to press twice in Eco I believe.

It can be disabled by unplugging the brown connector to a sensor under the battery cover to the left of the battery when viewed from the front. I think this is a sensor which monitors brake servo pressure ( depression) and disables stop start if the vacuum is insufficient. I'm not qualified to advise you to do this so its at your own risk of course. I haven't noticed any ill-effects on my car after 9 months.

Likewise. However, it is one of the only signals available tomyou as a driver that a forced regen is taking place (short of putting a bare foot under the drivers door cill and feeling the heat, so at the moment, against my better judgement it is on.

Ps: what is this Eco mode that I keep hearing about? 😂
