Stop/start engine sometimes not re-starting...
I have a 2012 Peugeot 308 e-HDi semi-automatic, that I've owned for around two months.
By default, each time you start the engine, 'eco mode' is enabled (there's a button you can press to turn it off manually, though it turns back on each time you start the car).
From what I can tell (from personal observations), parts of eco mode are:
A battery light appears on the dashboard.
It's embarrassing if people are behind me; I have to put my hazards on for 20 seconds until I 'reset' the car (handbrake on, neutral, keys out).
I know that sometimes, if you have the aircon on etc. the car will actually temporarily disable stop-start (presumably a battery power draw thing?)
I have an Android touchscreen radio system and a subwoofer/amplifier installed, all by a professional (not me! ).
Both times it happened, I was listening to music (mid-volume) and had the aircon on around 3/4 out of 5).
The car has 6 months warranty on it so it's going to the dealership next week to be looked at but in the meantime, does anyone have any ideas?
