Use mostly Motorways and A roads. According to fuel computer, at the moment average is around 46 mpg. Car now has 2200 miles on. I need to fill up tomorrow so will brim it and do a more controlled measurement rather than relying on what the car is telling me.

well mines back in the garage again si hopefully i'll have some information when I eventually pick it up, at the moment i'm thinking it's not the stop start thats faulty but it's a battery problem as the garage have charged it 3 times now in about 5 weeks now there has to be a reason why they have to keep charging it everytime they look at it

Well I still haven't got the car back from the garage but the latest news from the garage is not only does stop start not when the air conditioning is on but now it doesn't work if you have the hearter set to the lowest temp it can go, can't wait to get it back and find out if it keeps working.

I'll update as soon as I get the car back and have it for the normal 48 hours before it stops working again

Hi, mine works fine when the A/C is on, it does, however it does start the engine up again when the temperature inside the cabin begins to rise. I can also understand the bit about the lowest heater setting, which it should not be set to anyway in normal use, something that the manual alludes too. Maybe if you keep you A/C set to that then this is the cause of your problem.

Pee'd off - dealer phoned at 16:00, technician cancelled repair on Stop/Start system and advised earliest date of 28th September. Anyone know who to moan to at Ford ?? (For what it's worth)

Hi, Ford CS, 0845 841 1111, although don't hold your breath. Did the dealership give a reason for the delay? No help to you I know but mine is working flawlessly...

Chris

One other thing, don't know if it is connected to the stop/start issue but sometimes when you get in the car, you get a message 'Press Clutch To Start'. Even when you press the clutch pedal, this message sometimes then pops up saying 'Press Clutch And Brake To Start', you press the start button and then the original message will pop up again. To start the car you must then lift the clutch and push it down again.

Seen anything like this ??

The dealer has changed all those, thats why they're looking now at the GEM module - apparently all the connections go there. The 'Master Tech' who's coming is bringing all the parts to try including a complete pedal assembly

Hi, I guess its the same old thing with new technology, until it does go wrong they can't know how to fix it...

Well i've got the car back and have for a week now and believe it or not the stop start has worked almost every time i've stopped and yet the garage say they have done nothing to the car except check the battery on 2 consecutive days and yet everytime before they had to charge the battery it looks like they don't know what they are doing or they can't tell the customer the truth.

All I have found out about the problem is what i've been told by Ford is that the stop start doesn't work if the heater is set to the lowest temp (mine had been set to 15 degree's from day 1) or if you have the air conditioning turned on even though I hadn't used the air conditioning so now I change the Focus for a C=Max on Tuesday and hopefully there will be no more problems as the C-Max is only a Zetec
