The car will sometimes but not always flash up saying start/stop error. It never flashes up any other lights nor does the engine ever cut out; it always runs smoothly always feel power etc. The car has a new battery and alternator from seat therefore surely would be the correct ones and the problem was occurring before these were changed anyway. I was just wondering if this was a common problem or how much it would be to fix?

I'd guess I'd be starting by checking the pedal switches.

Even though new , get battery load tested and alternator output checked .There may even be a drain running battery down .
