Re: J11 Battery charging system problem

My start/stop is very similar, especially if the lights, aircon are on etc, you can stop your car starting itself buy putting it into 1st gear. I do this a lot now. It also stops the car rolling if on a slight gradient. I have to ask but will this extend the time of start/stop. My start/stop literal...

Re: Replaced Battery - Now Start / Stop Fault

Mike, you are correct. Q. What challenges do technicians face when changing AGM batteries compared to lead-acid based batteries? A. With a Start-Stop vehicle fitted with an AGM battery, the technician cannot just replace the battery in the way that they have done with a traditional battery. Instead,...

Re: Replaced Battery - Now Start / Stop Fault

This is not correct Gel. There is a counter that ticks down and causes the alternator to slowly ramp up over time or charge cycles the amps/voltage as the battery ages. This needs resetting.

Re: Brake pedal going to floor

John, I cant answer your question exactly, but I can say that I have changed 2 full sets of brake pads on x2 mini's and always replaced the rotors. Its a little more but they usually wear enough as to warrant it. So, my advise is always to replace rotors. If your foot goes to the floor make sure you...

Re: ProPILOT = Intelligent System = ACC ?

Hi Dave, I think the irony here is that there is always a new model waiting in the wings. Its like waiting for tomorrow, when you get to tomorrow its today, but you can always look forward to tomorrow ;) For me, I hope my next car will be electric, but not hybrid or lots of batteries, I want a hydro...
