Had my car's stop-start checked by Land Rover when it didn’t operate. They said it was the battery. They fitted a new heavy duty battery and the stop-start worked for about a week... It now only works with fan off. Could this be due the recent heat wave and use of the air conditioning? Very temperamental. Advise if possible.

My Citroen C4 doesn’t start-stop when sitting still at the lights. The dash lamp goes green on the dash, but that’s it; what can I do?

I am buying a Dacia Duster 162 reg from the UK and the garage says it has to repair a motor for the window washer; is this common?

I have a 2016 Kia Sorento and my stop-start does not work when I brake and come to a stop. The lamp in the dashboard is amber, not green and the stop-start does not activate like it use to.

I have a Ford EcoSport. The stop/start system, when I switch it off, at times, still makes the car judder a bit. When I've stopped, at traffic lights, then the engine switches off. I've not put it in neutral or took my foot off the clutch. This will only happen a few times, then the car runs fine, with the stop /start off. I don't understand why it still cuts off, when system is off?

My Fiat 500 has just told me that my start-stop system is unavailable and to check engine; is this dangerous and do I need to take it to a garage?

Could you please help on this? My Peugeot 5008 1.6's stop-start function is stopping the engine when stationary, but it would not start when I release the brake pedal. It gives sound of like the engine has jammed (goon goon goon). Then the ECO mode automatically gets deactivated and when I start the car manually, it starts perfectly.

I have a 2014 Volkswagen Golf 1.6 TDI Bluemotion. The start-stop function doesn't work anymore. I keep getting an error just saying "error auto start stop". I was thinking maybe it's the battery that's low, but I'm not sure. I've read online that it should work in Eco mode, but I have yet to try it; was just wondering if you could give me some more information?
