  2. Probably best to ask on the Ford Fiesta Club forum.
  3. Ignition on (not engine, just press the button without the clutch) Press rear fog 5 times Press hazard lights 3 times Wait to see the battery light flash on dash (10 seconds roughly) Switch ignition off It may be that your battery does not have enough charge in it. As an example, we also have a Citroen with Start/Stop, and if below 72-73% charged, the start/stop will not function. I would be surprised if your 2018 start/stop would not be working, if it has a decent charge in it. I have a 2016 ST, do not drive it regularly, and start/stop normally works soon after starting. I would firstly give the battery a decent charge with a battery charger, to see if it then works. Make sure the battery charger is capable of a decent charge rate, as start/stop batteries normally require a higher charge rate than a standard battery. I would also be inclined to have the battery fully charged, before carrying out the battery monitor reset.
  4. When you got the boot open, did you remember why you wanted to open it?

    Could be an 075 or a 100, best to see what's already fitted.
  7. As I understand it: Battery Monitor Reset (BMS): Press and release the Start/Stop Engine Button to switch the ignition on (do not press the clutch pedal). Wait for 10 seconds. Press the Rear Fog Light Switch 5 times (not 5 times on and off), then the Hazard Light Switch 3 times (not 3 times on and off). Wait for approximately 10 seconds, after which the Instrument Cluster Battery Icon should flash. Press and release the Start/Stop Engine Button to switch the ignition off (do not press the clutch pedal).

  12. I normally buy from TAYNA. These prices are + Delivery, for the 100. Depends how long you intend keeping the car. I normally go for the VARTA make, e.g. 5 year warranty with the E38: https://www.tayna.co.uk/car-batteries/types/100/
