    Lightbulb Suggested Shut Down Procedure...

    Hi all,

    Mentioned to my cousin that when you pull into a parking spot with a 9SP S/S, the car shuts off in Drive, only to restart when going into Park, only to be shut down again....

    She suggested leaving it in Drive, hitting the Stop button and then shifting the car into Park... Can't believe I didnt think of this?

    The DIC says "Shift into Park." after the engine button is pressed and everything seems fine and dandy.

    Maybe it's more complicated than this? Bad idea long term? Any suggestions are always invited!

    Sincerely,

    Brandon Binder

    Don't take so long to shift. And you won't shut down. I've never had a problem. I don't know why it's a big deal for all of you.

    You can also buy a module and never have to worry about AS. Another way to solve your problem.

    "I don't know why it's a big deal for all of you."

    Im not sure if you realise how fast the car is to shut off... Sometimes at red lights, it shuts off before the car has come to a LEGAL stop...

    Have I offended you? Its almost like some group of drivers is an issue..? All of you. Hmm.

    Anyways, thanks for your input, Ill remember to put my car into park while still in motion next time.

    I don't park my car while it's in motion and YES I realize how fast it shuts off. I OWN ONE OF THEM. And I also have the module to defeat it.
    It was never a problem for ME. And it's defenitly not a problem now.

    I knock it into neutral as I pull into a spot (a bit more annoying when parallel parking on the street outside if you don't catch it), then put it in park and turn it off.

    But no, nothing wrong with turning if off still in Drive.

    There is nothing wrong with pressing the start/stop button when in drive if the engine stops on AS/S, then shift to park as prompted. This only helps if you are where you want to be parked when it happens. I have done this as well if I don't get it out of 'D' fast enough. I really do not like how fast the engine shuts off. The wheels have hardly stopped moving.

    Another work around is to always drive in 'L' Low and shift it manually to 9. This does not cause any drive ability issues, and the Auto stop never activates. I try to remember to do this every time, as then you don't have to multitask while trying to park. If you want AS/S to work shift back to 'D'.

    I have tried this a few times, and it does work.
    However, I find the stop abrupt when the 9T50 is shifted to N while rolling.

    I do like Brandon, stop, shut down, park.

    If I'm at home or in an isolated spot I kill the ignition before I stop (often takes two button presses).

    I just hope I never forget the 'shift into park' step.

    With a stick shift car I kill the ignition about 100 yards before my driveway. No point wasting gas when I've got more than enough momentum to reach my garage.

    I guess I got used to with 6mt of shifting to N and coasting to stop. It’s just 2nd nature to do the same with auto. I agree tho some close quarters parking that doesn’t work.

    I also experience an almost instant auto stop when parking.

    My solution is just tap the shifter into neutral as I'm coming into the parking spot, stop, put car in park and shut off.

    Prevents auto stop / start.
