Auto stop - can you control it?

It has been a long time since I posted after I sold my Gen 8 1.8 - maybe 5 years?

Currently driving a 2014 Golf.

Thinking about getting a Gen 10 Civic, possibly something about 1 year old.

The start stop system - can it be controlled by the brake peddle on the auto?

On my DSG Golf, if you hold the brake pedal down for longer than a second it activates the auto stop, if you don't it doesn't come on - which is a brilliant system...

Yes you can, it depends how hard you press the brake pedal once the vehicle has come to a stop. Lighter pressure means no idlestop.

I was wondering if that could be the answer - we're all being too gentle with the braking!!

Then, most of us get the 'battery' or 'temperature' warning so it cannot be that.

I'll often disable mine - more a nuisance than a help, and feels a bit brutal unless anticipated prior to restart, asking the engine to rev with barely a second to circulate oil at pressure - understood that residual should still be coating the metal surfaces ...

If you lightly press the brake pedal, you'll see a graphic on the display indicating pushing on the brake pedal.

What I don't understand, is why the engine starts up when you move from D to P on the auto if the stop/start system has stopped the engine. My wife's Audi A3 actually stopped the engine when you shifted from D to P if the engine was running.

Starting the engine to immediately stop it again doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

Your car is manual transmission, this only relates to AT or CVT with idle stop. (10G 1.0T)
