The Fiat MultiAir is essentially that, but on the intake only. There is a cam lobe running the valve through a hydraulic linkage, and the solenoid can dump the fluid pressure.They also said camshafts would be replaced by solenoids controlled by the PCM so valve timing could be infinitely varied.
It was mentioned somewhere on here that vehicles monitor that for maintenance schedules.Simple $4.00 trailer wiring test plug disables the auto stop/start. Makes the truck think it is connected to a trailer.
I think most people just want it gone without dealing with the switch.Amazing, how many threads there are, with gizmos to cancel/prevent the Auto Start/Stop system, when all one has to do, is push the "OFF BUTTON"
Boy, am I glad I have a XLT!!!I've gotten use to it. Push the start button, push the parking brake button, push the auto stop button, turn the "dial" to reverse and drive off. Out of the 9 million buttons the only one they dont have, is a $%#@ing button to turn the screen off. If im not listening to the radio or have a phone connected that screen annoys the hell out of me.
