Stop / start D2

Today I was driving around the city centre. The stop start was working fine until following one stop sequence my D2 would not start up again on pressing the clutch. After a few minutes I was about to make a call to the Volvo dealer when I pressed the ignition switch and the car fired up.

Any thoughts? Anyone else experienced this? It's knocked my confidence a bit in using stop / start.

I've had a similar experience: I stopped, the V40 turned the engine off (as expected) and I undid my seat belt to remove my jacket (because the heating system works very well ).
At that point the V40 thought "Aha we've arrived so I'll turn things off properly".
The TFT display showed a smallish message inviting me to press the Start Stop button again. Which I duly did and the engine fired up.

So did you have your seat belt on throughout the incident?

Cheers Mike. Seat belt definitely not taken off. It was coming on for probably 5 minutes before the car would restart. I don't recall any messages on the TFT but can't say for definite as I was not looking out for such a message. I am sure it's a simple glitch of my making. :-)

Is there a way to deactivate Start/Stop sytem permanently through the menu? I do not want to deactivate it every time I get into the car.
