would you PLEASE answer my question -this service is a waste of money!!!

Hi there sorry I have only just received your reply

Ok there are 2 different types of battery fitted to your vehicle

1, silver calcium - standard

2, enhanced flooded battery -stop/start

If your vehicle has The Stop / Start system it will cut the engine temporarily into standby / STOP mode - during stops in the traffic (red lights,

traffic jams, junctions etc

The engine then restarts automatically - START mode - as soon as you want to move off. The restart takes place instantly, quickly by either pressing clutch (manual ) brake pedals (auto )

This is fitted on most modern day vehicles the Stop/ Start system reduces fuel consumption and exhaust emissions as well as the noise level when stationary

It will also have a button on the dash area to switch the stop start off

I have attached an image to show you roughly what the button/stop start symbol looks like

If you need further help or technical assistance on this issue going forward

please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
