    Thread: Start/Stop Carista

    1. 01-30-2019 10:29 PM #1
      Looking to pick up Carista for our new Atlas. Has anyone successfully used it to disable the start/stop function? Honestly i've pretty much trained myself to get in and press the disable button, but I was curious if Carista can make it permanent? Thanks!

      How much is it? You can get an OBD11 for $80ish and turn off your start stop plus so much more.

      I'd be curious to see how this compares to something like the ODB11 or the Vagcom. At a glance (from the website) it looks promising.

      I didn't either. I went on Amazon and got one of the cheap ones by Blu and the OBD11. On the Carista, they have an annual subscription when you take that into account it will more than make up for the price of the cheap android phone. I have done all my changes by using the adaptations and used the apps once during my first try after that dove in to adaptations as users have documented here. I even went into long coding to learn a bit (did that for the fan speed when in auto).

      A trick reported from boygirlca on this forum using VCDS :

      1. Disable the Auto Start/Stop system (Voltage Method):
      1). On Select Control Module screen, click "Select"
      2). Select “19-CAN. Gateway”
      3). Select “Adaptation - 10”, click “Channel” list
      4). Scroll down channel list and find the below 1 channel:
      IDE08348-Start/stop start voltage limit
      ( change “Stored value” {7.6v} to -> “New value” {12.0v}, then click “Do it!” )


      So no need to pay if you know where to navigate and change the correct value.
      Also, doing this, you can't re-enable the feature. It's a change of the parameters to allow or discard shutting off the engine.


      A device can be installed in order to memorize your last setting, and pressing for you on the button (of course, it's just changing its state by applying an electronic signal) when you start your car.

      Are you saying that once you disable them it is permanently disabled and going back to change the value to 7.6V will not re-enable the auto stop/start?

      VCDS looks to be about $100

      Carista is about $20 for the hardware which comes with 1 month free

      Wouldn’t it be possible to sign up and make the changes within the 1 month free period?

      Ok I got my Carista device this week.

      I just successfully disabled auto stop/start using Method A - inset to 12.0 volts

      So far so good!

      How long of a free trial do you have? If you still you might as well do the other adaptations like enabling the open/close windows from remote, unblocking certain function in the infotainment system (like using the phone to dial on the screen instead of such being blocked. I did all the unblocking using the OBD11 and it already came in very handy as my passenger could now enter the info I need like for directions and so on without me having to pull over. There some other things that can be done but not sure how much of those Carista can do.

      What button? If your response to me. What I meant was dialing a number on the screen when you want to manually

      There is a button but it has to be pressed each time you restart the vehicle.

      Changing in the background by using the methods above is a permanent fix to shut off auto stop/start.

      It’s a one month trial - I will go back in and check out those other settings.

      Tell you the truth I couldn’t wait to nix the stop/start so I wasn’t focused on the other settings
