With a bit of luck I shall be picking up my Bmax from the dealers today, with new screen fitted. Under warranty.

problem with heated screens

We have had exactly the same problem, always at the most inopportune times too. I was thinking of a new battery but won't bother now. Will just have to think of an excuse for a longer run out to recharge the battery more fully by the sounds of it.
It is really annoying especially on a day like yesterday when the windscreen kept freezing over as soon as I defrosted it.

The systems power priority is starting the engine. Stop start will not enable until sufficient battery voltage is achieved. Cold weather brings down the battery charge and staring the engine will draw several hundred amps so even with a fully charged battery the heated front screen may only defrost half the screen to begin with.
If you are going to use the heated front screen, make sure all other electrical loads are turned off while the screen clears and then make sure you switch off the heated front screen.
