    Hi, I've read about the many issues of the Start/Stop on the Giulietta and having the "correct" AGM battery. Mine comes on intermittently at best but I'm fine with that. What I do get though, is probably 1 in every 20 times the system starts the car automatically, it doesn't start the car but...

    Hi all, My other half has mentioned that she's experiencing an issue with our 2016 Giulietta 1.6jtdm. When the start/stop system attempts to restart the engine it judders and shakes, even the gear stick is shaking a little. The system can't seem to restart the car so she has to turn off thr car...

    My start/stop has only worked a few times - after connecting/disconnecting about 5 times. Anyone else have this problem? Also, the temp gauge always shows around 7 degrees lower than it actually is - so when it's +7 it says it's 0 and the snow warning is displayed. Wondering whether the two...

    Anyone know how the s/s works? Is there a mechanical switch on the brake pedal somewhere or a hydraulic action in the pipe-work? A lot of peeps moan about the system but I think that's down to how it operates. Stopping at a junction/roundabout, foot on the brake waiting for a gap, for a few...

    Stuck in a lot of traffic last night, auto start/stop doing it's business. Anticipating the car in front I kind of half lifted off the brake but then had to re-apply when they didn't move. The engine started and then stopped a bit too quick for itself, lots of bings and bongs, and I get the...

    Hi guys, Picked up my 2011 1.4T Veloce Giulietta earlier today, 44800 miles. Absolutely loving it so far but it does have some issues. I get some errors saying that the start/stop and adaptive lights are unavailable. after doing some research it looks as if an iffy battery could be a potential...

    Hello everyone, I have a G 12/2013 model year. Almost a year ago, when i still had the warranty i went to Alfa to check the start/stop because it wasn't working properly. What was happening: 1 day start/stop worked correctly, next day worked but it was igniting engine almost when it turned off...

    Hi all, I bought my second hand Giulietta last October, and the start stop has never worked on it. I've taken it to Halfords just to get the voltage and alternator checked on it. the voltage is 12.5v and the alternator gives 14v+ As it's still under warranty, I took it back to Alfa who would...
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi there, ive had my 2011 Giulietta for around 2 months now and in that time the start/stop has only worked for 1 day. Before that, it used to come up on the screen with start/stop not available etc as you would expect. Now, I don't get any messages and it doesn't work ever, although I can still...

    G2 Start/stop - checking failsafe I have a 15 plate G 2.0JTDM2 and have observed the following: when coming to a stop at lights/traffic , engage neutral lift of clutch - ASS kicks in and stops engine - Good! Dip the clutch when you want to pull off and the engine starts again - good! if sat...

    Hey everyone. Happy holidays to all and best wishes :) I have had my Giulietta 1.4 Multiair since October 2014 and about 6 months after purchase I would occasionally get the start/stop error light on the dashboard. This was easily fixed by turning the car off and back on. I am not sure if the...

    Hi All My Alfa is barely 3 years old and still under warranty and has a maintenance plan. About 2 months ago, STOP/START function on my Giulietta stopped work - Engine Light Comes on. Exclamation Mark and Says Stop Start is Unavailable. I have taking it in twice to Sandown Motors. First time...
  15. Alfa Giulietta
    I know the obvious answer is going to be "I always turn if off!" lol but this is intended as a serious question. For myself I tend to turn it off in regular stop/start traffic (as the car in front will often move within a matter of seconds) but I'd definitely use it in severe congestion. Using...
  16. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi folks, Recently bought an 11 plate G, and I'm absolutely loving it, I got the 2.0JTDM Veloce 170bhp and I grin every time the turbo kicks in. I've noticed recently though that after driving for a couple of minutes, a message pops up saying "Stop & Start Unavailable" and proceeds to show an...

    Hello everyone, newbie here. I've been having a few issues with my Giulietta lately and was hoping I could get some answers here. I have a 2L diesel Giulietta, which I bought new in February 2012. I have done approx. 70,000 km so far without any issues. I've been having a few issues since about...

    My 1.6 Diesel G has 53,000 miles on it now. Still running fine and I am thinking of buying it from the lease co when it expires next year. One thing that constantly bugs me though is the thought of how much wear and tear there is on the ignition each time the stop/start is used. Surely this is...
  19. Alfa Giulietta
    driving me crazy! Is my Start/Stop button wired up in reverse polarity? It's permanently on and I have to manually switch it off every time I get in the car. Shouldn't it be the other way round, you switch it on if you want this feature? Is there a way of switching it off for good?
  20. Alfa Giulietta
    For the first few weeks of ownership I was filling up with normal unleaded (usually morrisons) and my start/stop would work fine after the engine was up to temp which is usually after about 10 mins. I know some people are not fans of it but I actually quite like it. After a few weeks I then...
