Stop/Start Unavailable with warning light

For a while the stop/start feature hasn't worked, which i'm not too bothered about as i rarely used it anyway. However, recently I've been receiving the generic warning system fault light (exclamation mark in triangle) with the start/stop unavailable error message. It doesn't show immediately when the car starts but only after about 30 seconds to a minutes driving.

Lurking on these forums it seems to be a common issue with a lot of fixes being the old EFB battery. I've just now replaced the battery taking advantage of the 50% of all batteries on EuroCar Parts (product code: 444779051) rather than a garage charging me loads more.

Annoyingly the warning light and message is still showing

What else could be the possible cause - I've got it booked in at a garage tomorrow regardless because of the 'check running lights warning' showing although all bulbs working.. Any suggestions to have a look at first would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Stop/Start Unavailable with warning light

Bit late..

But the lights warning.. just measures the resistance of the lighting circuit..

So:
Poor connection
LED bulbs
Damaged wiring.

Or the brakelight switch

Re: Stop/Start Unavailable with warning light

If I receive message like this, I'll definately set in MES "Start/Stop = NOT PRESENT" and make new proxi alignement ;-) That should completely disable S&S system and it's messages
