Suddenly my Vezel (bought end Jun 2015) does not auto-switch off (when I come to a stop) anymore.  Is it because it sensed that the battery is getting low?

 

By the way, what sort of battery does the Vezel need?  Does AA provide this?  How much roughly?

 

Thanks.

Vezel got the recall on its faulty stop-start capacitors (April 2016). The caps are faulty and a fire hazard. I think yours uplorry liao. Whether it will burst into flames is anyone's guess. Good luck.

Seems like car dealers and car owners alike couldn't be bothered. Can drive, happy liao.

Yday evening I took a Grab home and the grab car  is Vezel. I asked the driver if the Vezel is good. He said it is rather quiet. Battery can last for about 5 yrs he shared with me.

I wonder how car insurance deal with cases like this? If the caps burst into flames and burn down the car I wonder who will get the blame?

Vezel with stop/start feature can use EFB (enhanced flooded cell) battery. They are more expensive than regular battery.

Around $200 or more.

Yes to TS. Battery weak. Don't worry. It good to drive for another month or so..

Slowly you will experience lag in your door opening.

Get it change when you got the times.

I change mine for 180. not the normal type where it cost 120.

Hi, do you use the start-stop function?

18mths battery life span is short.

If you are talking about old car yes 18mths is short. Modern car with so many electronic 1 1/2 years should be very happy.

Is ok. Few hundred dollars only for additional safety and concenvience fixtures. Some are redundant though like stop/start.

Alamak. Less than 24mth battery life span is a norm now for modern cars.

Yes, there are 2 sets of batteries, the one in the engine compartment is the standard battery.

The other is at the boot (but they are more like large capacitors), you need to remove the boot floor board AND remove the styrofoam thing to see it. When idling stop cuts in, it's this set of battery (or capacitors) at the boot that is powering the radio, lights, air-con ventilation fan, etc... 

 

They will have a life span too and will come a time they are no longer able to charge or discharge anymore. In your case, maybe that is why idling stop is no working anymore.

If that is the case I am very happy.  Finally found a way to disable the expensive useless irritating feature/bug.

 

Do you all Vezel owners experience the same thing?  That is, the auto-stop does not come on after about 2.5 years?

What I heard is that many cars with stop/start feature, it will be disabled when the battery is weak.

That is due to the main starting battery.

Not only is this limited to Vezel, but other cars as well.
