    I have Tasker turn on car home ultra, adjust bt volume, turn car mode on, and keep display on whenever I my phone is connected to my cars bt and has the power cable attached. Then i have an exit task to turn off car mode, keep display on never, and kill car home ultra (tried with root and without).

    Car home ultra never gets killed. It stays on in the background. Also, at disconnect, the phone is very sluggish and sometimes will freeze up and need a battery pull. I've noticed this the most when I turn off the car but leave the phone plugged up and restart.

    Any clues?

  2. Do you have secure settings installed?

    Yes, secure settings is installed and used in this profile to keep the display on.
  4. I set this up on my nexus 7 and it works fine for me. I hope you get it sorted out.

    Any update on this? I can't seem to figure out how to completely close Car Home Ultra with Tasker and Secure Settings

    I don't use Car Home on my phone, but Google Music used to not close for me. Using a Kill App action, a second or two wait, and then another Kill App action for the same app solved the problem for me

    I use the TaskKill plugin to forcefully terminate stubborn apps which just don't like to die (most notably those that include a service).

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker

Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker!
