    Stop/Start restarts the aftermarket head unit

    Hi, I wonder if anyone might be able to give me some advice here. I recently bought a T6, I had the headunit changed to a Pioneer because I wanted SatNav, I'm finding that when I'm pulling up at lights and the engine stops that the headunit also switches itself off only to restart when I take...

    Leisure Battery Split Charger Question (again!)

    I have recently come to learn to my expense (new leisure battery required, prematurely imo) that my camper conversion has a traditional split charger relay :mad:, rather than a DC:DC charger that would be best suited to the T6 with smart alternator. I have tried to suggest to the convertor...

    Auto Stop/start Caused Me An Near Miss Today...

    I forgot to switch off the stop/start today and it nearly [could have?] caused an accident. I was on an angled steep hill T junction waiting to turn right across traffic onto a fast A road. I was holding the Caravelle on the hand brake ready to cross as soon as safe. Then came the gap and just...

    Turn off Stop / Start

    Am I the only one who hates the Stop/Start feature. It is a real pain in the ass. Not only will it take life away from the battery but it must put extra strain on the starter, ring gear and especially the Dual Mass Flywheel. Just keep forgetting to switch off every time I get in the van. Scot...
