    For systems that DO include an override button, it is very easy to remove the button and disassemble it. Then place a piece of metal gutter flashing or metal foil inside the switch to depress the button automatically when you start the car. I tried using cardboard first, on 2018 Escape, but it wouldn't work. For some reason it required metal.

    Scotty I wanted to let you know that my aunts new equinox has no button to shut off the Auto Start/Stop. What you have to do is put it in Manual mode with the shifter and select the highest gear, so it will still shift through all the gears but won’t turn off at stop lights.

    Scotty, your logic based on the premise that other manufacturers couldn't match Toyota's reliability because they can't match their setup is deeply flawed. You're quoting *one* antonymous source from an anonymous company who was in charge of an undisclosed division. Was he citing statistics? Especially showing that it was the setup and not the parts, that makes Toyota more reliable (which i am not disputing). Then you go on to say that it was true then and we can see that it is still true (according to your experience). Your experience certainly supports their reliability, but not the *reason* for their reliability. That is circular logic you are using.

    There is an easy way to disable start/stop on some Ford products without having to push the button every time you start the car. There is a connector on the negative battery terminal that, once disconnected, shuts down start/stop until you reconnect it. You will see a warning light on the instrument panel that start/stop is disabled, but it is pretty innocuous and goes away after a short time. I've had my start/stop disabled this way since July of 2020 with no issues.

    Regarding sand on a car & the damage it can do to a cars finish. The same applies to bird poop. Birds eat grit to help break up seeds they eat as part of their digestion. To remove the poop, never rub it off. Get a soft cloth or paper towel. Fold it over twice (quarter sheet), saturate with water, put it on & let it sit for 5 minutes. Then bunch it up from the center & lift off the poo. 0 chance of scratches.

    The way we get our Prius to stay running (to fully warm up the engine) is to turn the heater all the way up to the hottest cabin temperature. Maybe that would make the auto-start-stop system keep the engine running. I think these shut-down systems damage engines by not allowing them to heat up completely. It can make an engine only as warm as it would be on a short trip and we know that's bad.
