How do I make Driving Mode work hands-free while I'm driving?

Driving Mode works great when I'm not driving. But when I need it the most my phone is of course locked and my Bluetooth can't access my phone. I have to pull over, stop the car, unlock my phone, then my Bluetooth will connect and and can talk hands-free. What am I missing?

VZW Samsung Driving Mode turns on automatically every time I start the car?

When my phone Bluetooth connects with my car it automatically turns ON driving mode. How do I permanently turn this OFF? I updated the OS and had glitches and had to wipe the phone. Is it just the new OS feature or can it be turned OFF permanently?

My Search/ Home button/ Back button not working?

Search/Home Button/ Back Button not working after I dropped it in the toilet. But the Touch screen is perfectly fine. How do I turn them back on?

Your only choice here is to quickly remove the battery from the smartphone and let the smartphone dry in a dry cool (or warm, but not hot or subjected to direct sunlight) place for a week or two. You can also put the phone into a bowl of dry raw rice to expedite the process of drying. If you are lucky to pull the battery out early enough after exposing it to water, then your smartphone will not be permanently damaged, and your buttons will work again. The later you take the battery out and dry the smartphone, the less successful outcome may be. When the smartphone is dry enough (just rely on drying it for a week or a couple of weeks), turn it on and test the buttons. If it is broken, then you may repair it at a service center for a fee (water damage usually is not a warranty case).

The directions shown do not represent what I see on my phone after the latest update?

Drive Mode (which still exists, in addition to Car Mode, on the S5 under Verizon) turns on automatically when I enter my car, overriding my car's system for handling calls and texts. I have to turn it off manually every time I start the car. I need to disable it permanently so I can use my car's software.. I have tried: I followed the instructions on this website but there is no sliding bar under General for Driving Mode.. I think it was caused by: Bad software writing?
