Can I turn my stop-start system off?

I have a 2011 Audi A3 and the stop-start system throws up an amber light warning that it is not working. How do I switch the stop-start system off until I can get it fixed?

Hi Dave,

There is no recommended way to deactivate the stop-start system permanently. If you turn it off using the button in the car, it will always come back on next time you start the car. 

Have you read our Why won't my car's stop-start system work? feature to try to get to the bottom of the issue?
