Re: Stop Start Not Working

In my Fiat the legend is wrong. A garage won't dissuade you if they sell batteries.... There are reasonable reasons why you might want thicker plates and current capacity in a battery expected to provide frequent start current. This is much achieved by fitting a battery with better cold cranking amps than you otherwise might. Also a higher charge current might help. The designer will have to account for worst case thermal conditions not often met in the UK, and I certainly don't do much congested or interrupted driving. There is no hidden intelligence in the battery itself.
Also they need better aftermarket revenue...
