Yes I’ve read them . I gave it a good run this eve 2 0 odd miles .. no start stop though .. surely the battery should be charged enough !!! Anyway a diagnostic might tell me something.

That should have done the trick, if the battery is capable of holding a full charge. A simple voltmeter check will confirm that. With electronics issues, others on these pages have suggested disconnecting the battery for a while and discharging the car's electrical system before reconnecting. Sometimes this resets the electronics. However, you need the radio code to hand before doing this. Should you need a new battery then look into what is specified for your vehicle, not any old low cost 12v off the shelf at a motor factors, for example. A forum search will reveal first hand experience on these matters from other members. Do let us all know the outcome.

Hello latest on start stop .
Had my car back into where i bought it from ..they took it to Vauxhall had a diagnostic ...because the strt stop wasn’t working and the aircon wasn’t ..but i was told it just needed a regas so well do it when we bring your car in ..( a few days after i bought it ) ..so my car as been with in the garage 8 days now ..and eventually after many a test they are going to put in a new compressor for the aircon as it was more than just a regas ...and they assure me that that will enable the start stop system to work properly again ..as it wont kick in while theres a fault with the car !! Why do i think that it wont cure the start stop !! ..ive owned the car 12 days and been in the garage 8 !! I’m not impressed at all !! And ive not been given a time when it will be done either ..in fairness its all being done by the garage expense ..and quite right too !!
