Does anyone know how I could disable the stop start which I hate please. the only way I can switch it off is to have the aircon on and fan permanent. I don't like it and don't like driving with the fan blowing all the time ' I now believe the new jazz has been fitted with an off and on button after everyone getting on to honda about this problem.I just think it causes more problems than good .thanks

Dont think you can , it's key part of the hybrid fuel savings. I hate stop/ start but on a lot of other cars it's simple to disable thankfully .

You have a heavier duty battery and starter than previous cars to cope with the excessive starting . On most normal cars with stop/ start it wont cut in if battery charge is low , by having the air con on and loading , it might be reaching that point where it wont function.
