Disabling eco stop/start

Post by Wheatles » Sat Feb 01, 2020 12:08 am

Does the E Pace have the same setup as the
F Pace whereby disconnecting the second battery (for restarting) or capacitor if used instead, will disable the stop/start.
Also does anyone know it’s location? (F Pace is located rear right behind interior trim) ?

Don't really understand question but the button to disable stop/start is on centre console.

Thanks for the reply. The switch you refer to merely disables the stop/start until you next drive etc.
I wish to permanently disable the stop/start like so many F Pace owners do and so the switch becomes inoperative.
In the F Pace you can simply disconnect the second battery or capacitor, whichever is present, to do the job.

Don't you think disabling it permanently would fail your MOT , due to increased co2 emissions after that , just like when people used to remove catalytic converters. Also it would be called a modification based on which car went all approvals initially and now permanently being removed.
You are looking for trouble and penalties I would say.
Just a thought.

Thanks for the reply, I accept your opinion.
But, are you suggesting that each time I drive and use the switch to turn off the stop/start I am creating an illegal act?

You are not doing anything illegal turning the stop start off in the car. But if you make any modifications to the car and don’t inform your insurance company, you may find that your insurance is void. No insurance is illegal. You even have to tell them if you put winter wheels and tyres on. You know what insurance companies are like, any excuse not to pay out.

Has everyone on here who modified their car to a powered tailgate told their insurance company?

Yes, later ones have a capacitor instead.
