Occasionally mine doesn't stop if I don't press the brakes firmly enough, so if I'm coasting in a queue or towards a junction. I believe this is normal though, because I've read somewhere there needs to be enough brake pressure for the system to kick in.When you've got loads of stuff on it still works but the a/c, fan speed etc cuts out instead.Try being firm with the brakes.

Another thought - is your Eco button still lit up - I think that has to be on for s/s to work.Best of luck

My eco button is lit. I dont have my air con on. Only have it on when its hot outside. Im seeing what its like over the weekend, that's what vauxhall have said. If it doesnt start stop they want to see it.thanks everyone for the advice. Edited by: Tracey.A

Somebody on here reported that the car vauxhall supplied them with was the wrong one. They ordered start stop but vauxhall supplied non start stop. Easy way of checking is how much is the road fund cost on the tax disk. If its start stop It should be £30, its £100+ for non start stop. Also check your reciept and log book to see what's written there. The other person on here had the option of a new car but lets hope that's not the case with your adam. As the other people have said on here the car has to complete a series of checks before start stop will work, one being the engine has to be hot. Hope you get it sorted.

Mt wife has just bought the Adam with start stop. I have had a VW Golf with start stop for 3 years. It is designed to only work when the engine is at normal operating temperature. Also it checks things like the battery charging rate and other things. It will not always cut in if it senses it is not right for the car sympathetically mechanically.
