9 SPEED AUTOMATIC ( Start / Stop )
The introduction of the smooth Fiat Ducato
9 speed Automatic is certainly Brilliant !!!
But it has for the European Market a Start / Stop -
Which is ONLY designed for European Market - NOT NZ
( so when you stop the vehicle with the brake , the engine turns off
and when you release brake engine starts and you can drive off )
This is not only annoying , but reduces the life of starter motors , battery life ,
and more engine wear in any brand of vehicle
In New Zealand we Do Not use this ....
as soon as you start the engine you must deactivate this as per photo
And Then when deactivated orange light comes up and
on the dash a symbol comes up on dash momentarily to indicate
Start - Stop has been deactivated .
