    Looking to disable Auto Stop/Start on VW Golf R and Porsche Macan

    Howdy,

    Do you have a product that can disable the automatic stop/start of both a Mk 7.5 Golf R as well as a 2017 Porsche Macan?

    I would be surprised if anything we have could do that on a Porsche because we have no Porsche-specific data in VCDS.

    As for the Mk 7.5 Golf R, I would guess it can be done, but we (Ross-Tech) are reluctant provide instructions for disabling "features" that are an integral part of a car's emissions and fuel economy certification. Of course that doesn't mean that users won't figure out a way...

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    ^^^ generik: With the admission that this has nothing at all to do with anything that can remotely be connected to Ross-Tech, you might look HERE, or HERE (for the Golf - not the Porsche)

    PS and as quid-pro-quo, if you ever make a set of controller channel maps for the mk7.5, I'd welcome a copy please
