It’ll stop-start faultlessly after the charge. Time will tell if the battery holds the charge...

Why do you want to bring the car back to default state? Selling up?

Yeah I guess I can only charge fully and see how it goes.

Answer to your question is: Yes. Funnily, car has been practically flawless for 2.5 years since new, when I decide I need to move on I get: a) Ambient temperature sensor failure (shows 3-4 degrees higher than real temp but no sign of physical damage) b) Low coolant (ok it's done it in the past too) c) Start-Stop not working (probably battery being too low) d) message to replace key fob battery  all within 2 weeks  :grin:

Surely it's trying to tell me something?

They were for the first 5 min of the trip but turned off after, so they shouldn't be responsible I think.

My start stop rarely kicked in just showedthe crossed out A. When I was getting some bits retro fitted the gent said my battery was poor so got it replaced and the start stop is back. Mine is a 63 plate and only gets used every other week so expected the battery not to be at its best.
