Hello once again

My Ka (2011) has an issue with its stop/startsystem. Most of the time it works perfectly, however from time to time when I am using it, it restarts on its own without me touch the clutch or anything.

Has anybody else had this problems and more importantly how do I stop it ????

Many Thanks

When it started on its own was the Air Con on? Was the heated rear screen on? Were you using a lot of services i.e. lights, fan, radio, rad fan etc? The only other reason I can think of is that your battery was getting low. The stop / start system and your engine originates from the Fiat Panda/Punto/500 range of cars and I trawl through their forum regularly and this same question is often raised. As yours is under warranty I would mention it to your dealer.

Dave, thanks for your reply

The day I realised this it was raining, therefore I had lights, windscreen wipers and radio on so seems to make sense using to must electirc elsewhere.

Tried it again today (dry weather) with no windscreen wipers and lights on and it worked perfectly.

Thanks once again
