Done on old battery and it didn't work on that as it still failed after a few days. Now with new battery from Feb at a higher Ah it never fails to work and even works before the engine gets fully warmed.

Why try a kill off the most popular subject on this forum? I would like to guess that most forum members have submitted something on here. Oh! by the way, I had a new battery fitted in May this year by the dealer and the s/s worked for about three months. Since then it has given up the ghost, despite me regularly charging the battery. From the latest posts here it seems like another trip back to the dealer to get it checked out, software up-date etc.

Not killing it off but what have we learned since I politely "suggested" calling a halt on the 11th July ?
Two members confirming that the software update has fixed theirs which we knew already and had been posted several times before that.
All the information is in here and I see nothing to be gained in any further postings.
