Only 3yo i would give it a good charge and maybe get it tested before changing.

 

You unfortunately need a Stop/start capable efb or agm battery and they are not cheap

Is an example but there are some very good deals elsewhere as well who also deliver so have a shop around

 

Things are cheaper when you are not in a hurry.

On another thread

 

Halfords EFB 110 £114 has a 5 year guarantee

 

They will fit for an additional £25

I have used Tayna for Batteries, very good service, just remember you need an EFB or AGM for the stop start

 

 

And other members have found lower prices.elsewhere

 

Halfords were dearer but longer guarantee which is another consideration

Already spoken about this in another thread but in short, I ended up upgrading my battery to a larger one and it's kept my S/S and Heated Screen working ever since.  I just wasn't doing long enough journeys to keep the batter above the recommended charge level to allow those features to work continuously.  But certainly try charging your battery overnight first and remember that you'll need to wait for the car to read the correct charge state before everything is hunkydory.  Should learn this itself overnight but I ended up forcing a BMS reset manually.

In case there are folks out there that dont know what BMS is and why it needs a reset.

Fitted one to the MK4.5 which looks very similar to that, once the air inlet

pipe is removed its very easy.

 

£184 fitted at home, about £100 labour?   If it takes him more than 20 minutes

check they fitted everything back properly, not missed out the screws or failed

to push the pipe back into place properly.

 

 

Small 1/4" ratchet and a few basic spanners/screwdrivers and your good to go.

Feedback here guys

 

Thought i would try a battery re-charge first

 

Got an AGM capable charger for £20

charged battery  in-car overnight

Did the BMS reset procedure after charge

Up and down the motorway about 20 miles

Still no Auto stop start

left on dive for about an hour

Started up took a few seconds longer than normal for the speedo etc  to appear 

 

Drove on streets for 20 mins - stop start now working OK with a below zero  outside temperature 

 

I have a cigar socket voltage display showing over 14 v   now 

 

will wait and see what happens now - fingers crossed
