New (to me) BMW X1 owner - disable start/stop?

Hi all,

It's our first BMW, a 2013 X1 xDrive 28i and just one drive back from Chicago with it (to Indianapolis) and I love it.

The only thing I don't care for is that start/stop thing. Been reading about how to turn that off.

Can anyone give any pointers to laptop software that can adjust coding rather than the relatively expensive Carly app (and subscription) I've been reading about?

Once you install all the tools, you can code your car.
It takes time to read through all the documentation, but once you have it setup and working you can do some neat coding.
My X1 doesn't have start/stop (not sure it was an option on the 35i), but I have coded out some minor things. I'm sure the start/stop can be coded to "remember" last setting.

According to the Carly support page:

Quote:
Start/Stop-Automatic memory
on
off
Setting for Start/Stop-Automatic is saved. This way the manual setting of the Start/Stop-Automatic button, i.e. whether the button is turned on or off, is saved for the next start. Deactivating the Start/Stop-Automatic on the car can increase the life time of the battery and the starter. (codable in IHKA)
The option is codeable in the IHKA module.

Yea that's quite the thread that one. I was reading through the beginner stuff about ISTA+

Maybe the ODB2 doodad would be a lot simpler. Apparently those ICOM things that are needed are really expensive too? :/

FWIW, I have Carly for my E90s and E84, and am very happy with it. I live pretty far away from the closest dealer, so the most reliable coding method is important to me, more so than cost.

That is very good to know, some positive feedback about it all. I have to admit to being overwhelmed with options of what to do. The A.S.S. (lol) isn't so much of a pain in the ... ass. .. but it's the thing that got me looking around to fix it. If I just do what I need and then leave it I guess I wouldn't have to have it constantly year over year charging $60 until I needed it again.

Honestly, it's $60.00 a year. I just pay for it every year, even if I don't use it that year We're driving $60,000.00 vehicles around. Being cheap over $60.00 a year......

I agree with Yukoner, it's nice to have even at $60 a year. I don't have time to deal with the software to manually code things, so it's nice to have the constant tool to reset service, code, and check/reset CELs.

No need for coding. Just push the button to turn it off. And it stays off. No need to do that every time you get in the car.

But it does, at least on my '14 X1 without iDrvie. I've had it turned off that way for years.

Ok, well on my vehicle (2013 X1 x28 with idrive) it doesn't.. I'm not debating it with you.. that's what I'm getting at which is why I started the thread. That's lovely you didn't have to mess with it, but for me I have to push that button every time I start the car.

Yeah there is a need to do it every time you get in the car. I have personal experience from two different E84s, one being a 2014 as well. I can confirm it MUST be done every single time when you start the vehicle.

My best guess would be that someone has coded yours at some point, perhaps prior to your ownership (if you aren't the first owner).

IIRC, BMW changed the default behavior of the ASS in the 14'MY of the X1 to default to last setting.

i think 14 and 15 bmw changed how the button behaves, press it once and stays off.

you can change your 13 and under to behave the same with coding

Manufacture year 2014 would be selling / marketing year 2015. So 2015+ remembers the last setting after an ignition cycle ?

I can 100% confirm that selling / marketing year 2014 does NOT have this option as defaulted (although it can be coded).

No I am the first owner bought new off the lot and it is a '14 model year bought late in 2013. And I have had no coding done. Perhaps there are differences between cars sold in the US versus Canada.

This is very likely what's going on. I went and double checked this a few days ago and I can 110% confirm that an ignition off / on cycle resets the system to "on" for the auto start stop.

I never did follow up on this but I coded it to remember the setting of auto start/stop by using the Carly app.
