I’ve seen other people post that they use a little folded piece of paper (like a business card) to keep the button pushed in. I don’t have that “feature” on my Soul, but it seems to work. I’d try that before getting into the wiring.
I pushed a toothpick into the thin space between that button and the one next to it. Been a month and it's still there! Push in the button to disable and hold it in w/ one finger...slip in toothpick with another.Just bought a 2021 last weekend. I do not like the auto-stop feature. I want to disable it. I know there is a dash switch to turn it off, but it has to be pressed each time the car is started. I want it turned off...period. I've noticed I can hold the switch before I start the car, and it starts with the feature turned off.
This tells me it's quite possible that I can add a simple parallel a SPST to the button and that would give me the option to leave it closed (button pressed) or open the switch and use the auto-stop feature (which isn't likely).
Does anyone know of a better method for doing it? Does anyone know of a schematic available showing the dash harness? I need wire colors and switch diagrams to add a simple switch.
Thank You all!
