    Polo GTI Start/Stop

    Picked up my GTI today.

    Has anybody else noticed that if you turn off the bloody annoying Start/Stop thing it turns itself back on after a time.
    I am still researching but looks like 15-30 minutes.

    Is this while still driving on the same trip?
    Or after you have stopped and restarted your trip?

    You should be able to disable it permanently with VCDS or OBDEleven or Carista. The current MK7 and Mk7.5 Golf can do it so im sure the Polo can also.

    Yes I know you can disable it permanently.

    I have done on on my golf with a little gadget that piggy backs on to the switch (a techo mate made for me).

    However if it resets itself the gadget wont work. Need to do some more research was just wondering if anyone else had experienced it turning itself back on.

    Found a permanent fix for my AW Polo GTI, no coding needed.

    I cannot take credit for this as I found the idea on an obscure VW site. The poster said he got it from a VW executive. But it works

    On the battery there is a little plug that connects to a sensor, you simply unplug the plug. I have had it done now for several days.
    You do get on warning message similar to warning you to turn on the headlights. The warning message clears automatically after a few seconds or if you press "OK". It only seems to happen once, per day as I can work out.
    This seems to have no affect on anything else.

    More like every time you turn the ignition to fully off and then back on.

    I have learnt my lesson.
    No point trying to assist on this forum.
    Much better manners on the VWGolf forum.

    Super moderator, wonder what a junior one is like ?
