With A/C running the Start/Stop does shut off, but then it turns back on a couple seconds later, unless the A/C is at max or the blower at max or something. Haven't figure it out entirely, but when I leave it on auto, at say 68 degrees, it shuts off and then starts up again a few seconds later.The engine will not shut off in that case.
The A/C can't cool without the engine running.
Gas Savings!? For several tanks (over 4K miles now) and letting it do it’s start/stop thing, the maximum I saved per tank was a whopping .07 of a gallon. Yes, less than .1 (one tenth) of a gallon! I find most interesting most everyone dislikes Subaru’s IMPLEMENTATION of start/stop and are trying to find a workaround. It is rough and I suspect it adds a lot of added wear and tear on the starter system. Many are so smooth. (Toyota for instance) that it makes one wonder.Of course it's easier. But I don't want to do that because I want the gas savings.
Maybe a Toyota Hybrid? I've had two previous BMW's with ASS and they weren't much better than the Outbacks' implementation. What they did have though was a physical ASS off button that retained state, so if you turned it off it stayed off until you turned it back on again.Many are so smooth. (Toyota for instance) that it makes one wonder.
No pixie dust but I just got the screen update (WR1-20) FREE from the dealer. Within that update they moved the S/S button to the Home Screen! Now it is simply a touch of the finger each time I start the car. I can live with this fix. THANK YOU SUBARU for listening!Has anyone tried magic pixie dust..I heard it will disengage the s/s if you twirl around twice as you toss it into the air.
Yeah, I updated my f/w a couple of weeks ago, and am now considering de-installing/selling my auto-S/S eliminator harness. The one-touch solution is pretty good for me too, and it's one less thing to consider if my car needs to go in for a service (I'd rather not deal with questions, or perhaps challenges if there's an electrical issue, if I forget to uninstall). Yeah, the design is such that it shouldn't be an (actual) issue, but convincing a service-manager of that is a whole different deal.No pixie dust but I just got the screen update (WR1-20) FREE from the dealer.
