Hi all,

has anybody already experience with disabling the Stop/Start System with this task on the Velar?

I'm pretty certain there's no way to permanently disable the auto stop/start function through software.

JLR have deliberately left this out of their system even though it is a basic feature people clearly want and the effort required on their part to fix it in software would be trivial.

Looking at the f-pace forums, others have worked around this by disconnecting the signal lead from the voltage quality module in the rear of the car:

I'm getting my car(P250 R-Dynamic SE) within the next weeks and i really hate such systems, so i really appreciate any feedback on this.
I already asked my dealer and they told me, that it's not possible to disable the Start/Stop System by just disabling it via software setting.... :x

Cheers, Chris

How do you turn it off on a trip by trip basis? , My A8 was a simple button on the dash ..I never got on with stop start and turning it off was the first thing i did following starting the car. Does the velar system require menus and sub menus to deactivate ???

There is a button on the vehicle tab on the lower screen.

IF we find out how to buy what we need we could do this ourselves with a laptop and software.

It’s going to be the first thing I do when I get mine, is find the connection and pull the plug :D

I know this thread is pretty old, but Does anyone know how to remove the quarter panel to get to the VQM in a Velar? The other models have an easy access panel, but not the Velar. I cannot wait to disable this feature. Absolutely useless. It's not even well designed. The slightest pressure decrease on the brake pedal causes the engine to start, even after a couple of seconds of it turning off. So, you'll have to very very careful with your food pressing on the break!!!

I found out that the Workshop Manual. Loadspace Side Trim Panel (501-05) has the directions. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

For me, it is disabled by clicking the icon and then does not turn on. I don't remember how it turned out, maybe after ecu tuning the engine on my Velar P250!

Same for me, I disabled it by tinkering with the start-stop icon the first day and it's been off ever since. It does turn on after I bring the car in to get it serviced each year but once I click the start-stop icon, it turns the feature off and stays that way for good. I always tell the dealer they better not play around with that, I want it to stay that way...
