Issues with handsfree bluetooth and stop-start
So I recently bought a Civic 1.6 Dtec SE and since it doesn't have bluetooth included, I bought a bluetooth handsfree kit : "Kinivo BTC480 Bluetooth Hands-Free" which plugs into the cigarette lighter.
However I'm having an issue with the stop-start engine.
When the car comes to a rest, the engine will switch off and the music I am streaming over bluetooth will continue playing just fine. However, when the engine starts when I'm about to move, it causes the bluetooth device to switch off and I have to manually turn it back on again.
Is there like an accessory mode that would prevent this from happening?
Or any other solutions that don't involve turning off the stop-start?
And does anyone have an aftermarket handsfree kit that works around this problem?
