Thanks Guys.  I assume its an AGM battery that is compatible with Stop/Start that I need rather than traditional lead acid?
 
Diagnostics also flagged up a misfire on coil pack on cylinder 6 so just waiting for a quote to replace one (and an alternative quote to do all 6 - thinking parts are minor part of cost and labour may not be massively more to do 6 compared to 1)
 
As far as roof is concerned a faulty trip switch at rear near side is reported but Indy thinks I may well need a new motor swell but they will confirm that after the switch replacement. (P&L inc VAT for the Trip switch is about £800 and the motor is around £900).  Might get a second opinion from OPC on this one.

i certainly wouldn’t be surprised if the stop start system “backed off” if it thought the engine wasn’t running properly.  It wouldn’t want to stop the car and then fail to restart. 


stability control - yes - I can imagine the car deciding that it’s ability to control the car was compromised by a misfire.  


i have seen pdk gearboxes throw errors  because of coil packs. 


indy should be able to identify The misfire and engine light cause.  That needs fixing anyway.  And if they note and clear the other codes and they don’t come back then you have your answer.

Hmm - no experience (for obvious reasons!) of the roof but those costs seem a lot.  Seen plenty of reports of micro switches failing but don’t think I’ve heard of a motor going even on 986/987. You could try posting or searching on boxa.net - a lot of running reports and problem diagnosis/ repairs there.
