I've owned my car a few weeks and only have about 1200 miles on it. I drove my car quite a bit this weekend. After driving about 40 miles I stopped to drop something off and when I restarted the car I suddenly got two error messages: Reverse Fog Lights inop and Start Stop unavailable.

Honesty, I never even knew the car had "reverse fog lights" until now. The normal back-up lights still work fine in reverse, however.

The car starts and drives with no issue. I thought perhaps the start stop might be related to a lot battery, and indeed, it's only showing 12.5 volts... which is a bit lower than ideal. But what could explain the reverse fog light issue at the same time? Could those fog lights has so much draw that they get disabled if the battery is low?

Anyway, I am headed to the dealer in a couple of days but was wondering if anyone had experienced this before?

I am running into the same exact issue - can you share what was the outcome when you took your car to the dealership? Was everything repaired under warranty

I have an Alfa Romeo guilia 2018 with barely 7000 miles on it
