Stop start stopped

Hi.
I realise it's related to battery charge and condition. Also as a low mileage weekend driver and i have had a low battery if i used my after market alarm without driving. However, i do use a charger periodically to keep the battery tip top but it still been yonks since auto stop start has kicked in. I'd coded it to persist the last used setting and last summer so remember it working when enabled. I coded it back and now surprised it never seems to stop now.. Even after a freshly charged battery.
I have Carly. I'd cleared the older low battery codes and there's no current battery codes. Are there hidden codes? Is there anything i can monitor while driving to see what's going on using Carly or maybe inpa.

Thank you
Chris

Just because the battery is fully charged doesn't mean it isn't worn out. The car adjusts things based on the battery's lifespan and it sounds like it's thinking the battery is well below its original performance.

When you replace the battery, you have to tell the car it's new and has 100% capacity. This is sometimes referred to as a "battery registration".

How old is the battery in your car?

5 years. I understand about the lifespan but would've thought with a good recon and fully charged it'd be fine.
