I was going up hill to join a motorway and I’m guessing I was in too high gear, then my warning light and engine light came on and then a message telling me that to stop-start had been deactivated. The warning lights remained for the rest of the journey. Can you tell me what happened? I have a 2013 Fiat 500L.

It sounds to us like the alternator may have been struggling to produce enough electrical power and that perhaps your battery could do with replacement. If the problem has not reoccurred then it's nothing to worry about, but no harm getting your battery checked before winter sets in.
