Video- How to code out Auto Start Stop

Hey Everyone,

In today's video, we'll show you a super quick and easy way to turn off Auto Stop Start... which is, in my opinion, the most annoying feature of ALL modern day cars...

What feature in your car drives you nuts?

Bryan

Why would someone code this out when all you have to do is keep the button pushed in? Do people just do this for fun or there a real benefit? I've had my car for almost 5 years and have never used it. Just curious really...

I don't understand what you mean by "keep the button pushed in", but can't you just accept that some people find this an annoying, distracting, and therefore potentially hazardous feature. Anything that makes driving a more relaxed experience is a safety benefit. It's easy to make a dismissive response about switching it off every time you start the car, but why should that be the only sensible approach?

My 2015 F32 retains the last setting of Auto s/s as new from the factory - no coding needed

I set it to OFF, car starts up every time with it OFF, no need to push anything...

If BMW had released all these cars with that feature enabled as standard there would be almost zero interest in coding it. My car (2014) came with ASS defaulted ON, and there are two separate coding options - default OFF, and memory - I chose the former, since I never want to use ASS.

I was referring to the button right above the on/off ignition. If you keep in pressed down then the car will never start with the engine on/off feature while you're stopped. I have a 2015 428i and it came with the car I'm sure older cars may not have the feature so that's why they code it out.....makes sense.

My 2015 automatically leaves the ASS in whichever mode it was in when the car was last driven.

This seems to be a deliberate change from 2014 to 2015, at least in some cars. I saw a 2015 US user manual that specifically describes the memory feature as standard; this is not in my 2014 UK manual.
