Turn off active sound control at dealer

My 6 month service is coming up and wanted to see how I can turn off the fake speaker/active sound control via software.

I also read somewhere that there's options regarding volume of the ASC- can anyone confirm this? Also any idea how much the dealer may charge for this?

Yes, I saw him navigating through the software to find the way to turn off. It was the first time the dealer was doing that (December 2022, Michigan, not much BRZs here)

I'll be doing the same thing at the 6-month visit with my car.

It can be deactivated via software. The Everyday Driver guys have a video about deactivating their GR86's noise maker at the dealership on their their YouTube channel. They show the service tech with a tablet plugged into the OBD port and after going through only a couple menus, it appears to be a simple setting toggle.

My dealership confirmed they can kill it on my BRZ as well. They didn't discuss price.

Not sure why you would go this route, though. Unplugging it is literally a 5 minute (or less) job and then you can plug it back in anytime you want.

Maybe it's just me (as I feel this about a lot of things) - why have someone do for you something you can as easily do for yourself? FYI, I absolutely hate things like valet parking, doormen, people carrying your luggage, etc. - so as I said, it may just be a "me" thing.

If you do it yourself, just wrap it in something soft and/or tie it down to minimize hearing it bang around. I had extra wire loom and wrapped the connector with it, then used velcro tie to hold it down.

I prefer doing it in software vs me breaking something physically.
I am a klutz.

I'll do things myself too. However, the car has to go in for service eventually anyway, so might as well have it done via software vs a physical disconnect.

If I could deactivate it my self in software like you can on a BMW with Bimmerlink, I would do it myself.

I unplugged my Mk6 GTI's noise maker myself by pulling the cable. It worked fine but over time I ran into a minor issue of hearing the disconnected cable and connecter rattling inside the car. I'd like to prevent that in this car. In both this car and the GTI, there doesn't seem to be a good way to secure the loose cable to prevent rattling in the future. I don't want to be constantly popping off the trim piece to secure a loose cable/connector.

This was honestly one of the easiest things to do.

Look you really clearly want the dealer to do it via software (for which they will probably charge you $50 or so), so do that.

But you don't need to make up stuff just to convince yourself. There are literally about 20 different ways, things you can do to secure the cable with a zip-tie once you unplug it. If you don't believe me take the 5 seconds it takes to remove the passenger dash cover and look for yourself.

Easy to unplug, a bit more difficult to reinstall. 2 mins unplug - 10-15 mins reinstall, had difficulty reaching in, getting plug aligned and pushed in.
