Mine usually needs an uninterrupted run of 15/20 miles to complete a cycle and this occurs every 500 miles or so. I think the DPF light on the instrument panel only illuminates during driving when the system is seriously fouled.

The light is amber.turning the eco button on /off makes no difference to performance all it does is turns the stop start off which saves fuel when stood and it is activedted .the stop start does not come on on a regular basis mine did not come on all the time but the eco button was never turned off

When I got my car eco did not work so it went to VX & they found no faults on computer even though it was not working. My battery was a bit weak as it was winter so I changed battery & s/s started to work. If battery is changed it must be suitable for s/s to work.

Ok well thanks guys I know a bit more .. I’m not gonna change the battery for the sake of the start stop .. tbh I’ve not given it a good run yet so I’ll keep driving it and see if it kicks in over the coming weeks .. but Ian taking the car back in tomorrow so I’ll ask them to run a diagnostic .
I’ll update you .. thanks again .

There are about three pages on the stop/start system in the owner's manual, including conditions which affect it.
