Default stop / start operation?

well I've never had a car so reluctant to use it's stop start, is it normal?

I drive for circa 15miles to work so its not a great distance, but even a couple of 50mile journeys and still nothing.

its worked a few times but mostly just flashes "eco" 3 times when stopped.

is the alternator really that pathetic on the car or does the battery want changing?

I had a Golf which led a similar life and start/stop was working all the time?

There is a few dozens of conditions have to be fulfilled. Some days, rare but still, my car engine run all the time and the other days goes to stop state every time when is no movement.
I'm not bothered about it, the car knows ....

How old is the car? you know, we don't, and this can make a difference.

If it's new, then there is possibly something wrong. In which case get back to the dealer.

Mine doesn't always work over short journeys, but 100 miles usually does it, then it continues to work for a few days on short runs.

I agree with your point, I bought mine second hand and for the first couple of weeks, the stop/start didn't enact once, but from them on it kicks in every now and again, sometimes after only driving for a minute or so!

It does need a wide range of parameters to be just right.

As has been said, if you are worried, get it taken to the dealer and see what they say. They will plug it in and see if their are any error codes.

Additionally, I think its worth noting that different Peugeot engines will behave differently when it comes to the S/S function.

E.g. Comparing the S/S function of a 2L 180 bhp engine and a 1.6L 120bhp engine isn't really possible.

Apologies if I'm merely stating the obvious.

Usually a sign of a low battery (2 years+) But why do you care really? It's better to keep the engine running constantly for the engine health. The saving with S&S in fuel is almost zero.
