I pull into parking spot - apply and hold brake pedal with shift leveler in D - ASS kills engine. Whats my next move to prevent ASS from starting engine ?
Thanks

eh, perhaps turning off the car while in D? Then get warned by the car to shift to P? There are simply no good way to prevent the engine from coming back on before getting turned off within seconds.
Our Regal's ASS execution can use some improvement on this.
With those newer electronic shifters that I have tried (2020 CT5 for example), I can turn off the vehicle just like that once ASS killed the engine.

My next move was to get one of the auto-start-stop dis-abler options and be done with it for forever.

I've said it before but I'll say it again...

This conversation goes the same way every time.

Can I disable it? Yes, here are the handful of ways......

Why would you want to do that? Just put in Manual mode when you come to a stop....

No, I don't want to put it in manual mode.

But why not? It's free.

So is Herpes sometimes, I don't want that either....

Or just back it in. :p
Where it kills it as I stop, then restarts when shifting to reverse.

Auto stop start on this car just seems very poorly calibrated. Mine would often shut down while at a very slow roll in still-slightly-moving situations, like a drive-thru line. I HATED it, and was very happy to kill it via Trifecta.

I guess my car has learnt my driving habit even with such low miles. I am confident to say that have not happen to me.

Mine seemed to get stupider over the 7 months I drove it stock. Often shut down before even fully stopping, and cranking again before the engine stopped. Dealer changed battery, zero change in stop/start.

I notice it in others now to. Like getting gas and someone pulls up to the pump, car shuts off, then restarts as they shift to park, so they can shut it off again. Almost always seems to be Evisions and Malibus.

I personally like the ASS on our Regal comparing to the invasion and Malibu, where it stays off far longer than those 2.
On the invasion, I timed it at about 40 seconds-ish before it turns back on.
Meanwhile, 40 seconds is too short for some of the red lights around my place.

So in your area, I could tolerate (or maybe even appreciate) stop/start. I live in a rural town. Just a few lights, and in my routine I rarely ever hit any of them. So I have stop signs, and zilch for traffic. The time I ran to the store one evening and the thing shut down 6 or 7 times, without ever actually shutting all the way down, I was done. Order was put in with Trifecta that night.

Yes, I could throw it in manual every single stinking time I am coming to a stop, but why hassle with that, or wear out the shifter mechanism prematurely from racking it over and back 30 times a day? Really, of stop/start would just wait 2 seconds after a stop before shutting off the engine it would almost never affect me.

Almost free of ASS at last.
Dont tell the climate change people, you could be cancelled.

Those bean counters in Detroit should just leave the damn button there. 😩

Just as an FYI, now that my ASS has been permanently disabled with the Trifecta Tune I am selling my Axxess Start/Stop override module. Send me a PM if you’re interested.
