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 !!

Many just switch the start/stop off anyway as it causes more wear on the starter and battery and hardly saves any fuel anyway.

It is a gamble - and an expensive one if your battery is OK.

'An AGM battery can be identified by the label on the battery. We recommend the use of an original
Vauxhall battery.
Notice
Using an AGM vehicle battery different from the original Vauxhall vehicle battery may result in a lower
performance of the stop-start system.'


It is reported that the braking vacuum affects the stop/start operation. As Diamond Dave says, I always turn stop/start off simply because it is an unnecessary nuisance and I wish the default position was the other way around.

Latest on the stop start ..sorry I’m boring you all ..but i have it and i want it to work..
It seems to be working more regular but ...only when the engine is cold .yep cold ...short journeys and it kicks in ..longer journeys and ..no chance !! .shouldnt this be the other way around ? The dealer says run it for a bit and see how you go !!
