Giulia Veloce stop/start issue
Good news. The stop/start didn't work when I bought the car about a month ago so it's had a new battery under warranty. It also had a new interior light unit so the alarm sensitivity could be dialled down. It also had any relevant software updates completed. All done at Monday Sport in Sussex (not where I bought the car).
It took a day or so for the battery etc to calibrate and the stop/start kicked in and worked. After another day or so and a 40 mile journey, it doesn't work again. I've been told there are many parameters etc that can affect the operation of stop/start and it's not a massive issue. However, on a £25k, 18-month old car, I feel it should work!
Have emailed Monza Sport twice but they haven't responded so will have to call. The car is fab and, yes, I could just enjoy it but it's a matter of principal!
Any ideas what to suggest or look at next?
Thanks in advance
