Default V50 1.6d Drive Stop Start issues

Mines a Silver one. This is the best colour. I chose it above all...and I aint no rep either!!! ;o)

On a serious note, I know nothing about these. I bought this V50 1.6d Drive start stop (81000) only 3 days ago....What a fabulous car it is as well. There is just one thing that is now giving me a headache. The Stop Start function just seems to please itself whether it kicks in or not! Sometimes I dip the clutch, knock it out of gear and put the handbreak on, and it does what it should do. Then as was yesterday for most of the day....Nothing at all happens! In the evening it started working again. Please can anyone enlighten me more about this function? All the pro's and cons info would be fabulous to have in my knowledge basket! Joking, but maybe I need some comp updating or something. The reason I suspect that is that the last 3 services have been done by Halfords, and I'm wondering if they have the facillities to upload the latest software into the cars computer. Anything at all relating to my delemma would be most appreciated.. Thank you Don.

Default V50 Stop/Start Issues

Hi Don, Recently had similar problem with 1 year old V60 DRIVe start/Stop. Green Stop/Start light would stay on but engine would not kick in again when depressing clutch. Had to press ignition button twice to restart...
Problem sorted by my Volvo dealer, stated needed software upgrade.

Hey all, first Volvo I have owned always been a Mercedes man but drove an s80 t6 and loved it bought it as the price was right. Then the tranny went any suggestions as to where I can get a well priced rebuild kit. Will have to be over the net as I am in New Zealand.
