FIAT 500 II Ignition switch faulty

Seven out of ten times after I turn the ignition switch to the intermediate position I am not able to turn to the engine start position. I always pause at the first position and pause until all the relevant warning lights have extinguished before starting the engine. I now have to return the switch to off and then go straight to starting the engine. I dont know if this will be a problem in the winter

I think it would have been a nice touch by fiat not to have included the starter on the

FIAT 500 II Fiat 500 Start Stop System

Hi All Im aware there are many threads on many forums regarding this issue. So to save me reading them all I would be grateful if anyone can help Bought a 2nd hand fiat 500 Lounge a week ago. Approx 2 years ols and 11k miles The dealer said the Start Stop system would not activate till Id done around 100 miles or so as it had been unused for a little while Been driving it a week and done around 150

The latest SS software remembers the last switch setting so if you turned it off before you switched the ignition off it will still be off when you restart I think this version was standard from 2013 on so most likely not on your car unless it was upgraded

FIAT 500 II 1.3 multijet diesel ignition start up issues

Hi guys First post on the forum and its going to be about a problem by the look it Just bought a fantastic second hand 08 500 1.3 multijet diesel with 15k on the clock however ive noted an issue when I start up the car especially when its not been used for 12 hours. When I turn on the ignition the engine ticks over for a good 2 seconds before kicking into life. Although no warning lights pop up ive

Wait till the lights go out before starting. All Diesels need time for the glow plugs to work. Some are quicker and some start operating as soon as the door remote is pressed. But fiats system is very good. Be patient. I assume that when the engine is warm there is no problem

FIAT 500 II Stereo Back Panel Picture

Hi does anyone have a pic of the back of the standard stereo Cheers

on the other side of the world Im in exactly the same boat myself - I bought an amplifier today what timing. The row of Mini-ISO connectors - on top the yellow green and blue plugs - ought to have a line-out somewhere in there. Its usually the yellow in other standard-compliant stereos (blue being used for the CD changerline in and green being the steering wheel controls) BUT rumour has it that fiat

FIAT 500 II Newbie queries

Hello to one and all my first post about my 500. Its a1.2 POP and Im stuck with a couple of things that the handbook is not very clear about. First the sidelightsdaylights only come on with the headlights or stopped with the ignition OFF. I cant drive on just sidelights. The menu shows them but there is no ONOFF facility. Is this how it is on the POP or doI need to see the dealer Second the doors autolock

Originally Posted by roy B First the sidelightsdaylights only come on with the headlights or stopped with the ignition OFF. I cant drive on just sidelights. Thats the same for all 500s possibly the majority of all fiats. If sidelights are on then as soon as you switch ignition on that turns into headlights on. The DRLs when on in the menu system dont operate the rear lights so you cant use them as

FIAT 500 II The 500 has nearly done 500

Had ours coming up 2 months and it has covered almost 500 miles....at this rate it will be a few years before it is run in Looks like I will have to use it on more work journeys.

Ive then had to switch off the ignition & re-start the engine so its not a perfect system but i just think its how it is - it was designed to make stupid MEPs in Brussels who know jack-all about cars think ooh yes thats good for Climate Change but as for real-life impact its questionnable. Id just switch it off or try and ignore it if i were you. fiat

On my way home in my 500 yesterday I saw one exactly the same colour as mine (funk grey) being towed on the road.

Have had this car since June 2012 Since then the stop start has not worked properly. I have been told by the dealers a variety of things as to why it is not working the radio was on the heating was on windscreen wipers and radio on phone is charging and various other reason the latest being it will only work if you coast while driving.

Any reasons why my oil level might be rising 1.3 diesel - 75

by stalling them or by stuffing the air intake with rags (which few people are willing to do against a raging engine).

FIAT 500 II Anti-Stall Feature

There seems to be an undocumented feature of the 500 at least there is on my 1.4 petrol. The engine management system appears to have an &8220anti-stall&8221 feature &8211 in 1st gear or reverse you can take your feet right off the accelerator and clutch and the car will just trickle along at 1000 rpm like an automatic. Not only will it do this on the flat but also up a steep gradient. The ECU just

Right. So this is not so much a feature as a natural property of modern engine management systems. Interesting. I am used to engines where if the revs drop below 2000 the engine tries to climb off its mounts or just stalls dead. Blimey drivers are spoilt rotten these days.

FIAT 500 II How to drive dual logic correctly

This may seem like a silly question but I would like some clarification before I or my missus do some damage. When driving the dual logic do you A) completely lift off the accelerator when it is changing gears B) only lift off a little until it has completed the gear change C) leave your foot in the same position leaving pressure on the accelerator The smoothest method is B but I have heard that in

Dualogic is indeed a variation of Selespeed refined over many years. The Alfa 156147 was the first generation and often troublesome. I think of my Stilo as the second generation (similar to the 156GTA147GTA) where the actuator bears directly on the gear selector forks. Then the Punto Grande and 500 have a smaller system of similar design. The Stilos system was renamed Dualogic for Brazil. The SelespeedDualogic

FIAT 500 II Dealer wont fix flashing mileage or any other niggles

I picked up my 500 two weeks ago and since then the mileage counter has been flashing occasionally. I took it to the dealer yesterday but they phoned today and said it hasnt flashed whilst theyve had it and so wont try and fix it as it wouldnt be covered under warranty. Is this right My 500 also had some other niggles such as a loud pump sound coming from the passenger foot well when breaking the main

I have a different perspective on this. My 500 has the flashing mileage thing intermittently. Ive noticed it tends to happen if I start the car before the system is fully booted up.

FIAT 500 II 500 TA engine & exhaust mods

Anyone had any experience in tuning a TwinAir engine Ive had mine several months and want a little more out of it. Looking at exhaust systems Ive found a few Ragazzon being one. Its such a unique engine note that I want to exploit it a bit. Also on the induction side of things how easy would it be to install an aftermarket one ECU-wise what sort of bhptorque gains are possible without shredding gears

looked at the rated 150Nm figures for the C514 gearbox and compared them with the current 145Nm output. There isnt much leeway. On the 103bhp model AFAIK it uses a higher rated 190Nm C514R gearbox which can take the extra torque. Previous discussion on here . You might have summarised it best yourself... But Im hearing horror stories of gearboxreplacements before brake pad replacements from fiat

FIAT 500 II Cold starting the 1.2

This is for 1.2 owners... does anyone else find the car takes a while to start up when cold Ive noticed for a few times that you have to turn the key and wait a couple of seconds or so for the engine to kick in but the other night turned the key and held it there for couple of seconds and the engine just cut out. I tried again and it took at least 3-4 seconds for the starter motor to get the engine

Two things - The 500 handbook actually does tell you to depress the clutch when starting the engine which did surprise me. Such advice seems very old-fashioned. On the petrol models when you first turn the ignition on the fuel pump has to prime the injection system. You can hear it running then stop. Perhaps if you are a bit hasty on the starter you might well find the engine slow to fire up so wait for the pump. John

On a NA car remapping will give a very limited increase.

John you might not find anything untoward if the warning light has now gone off but you might just be lucky and see a bulb that is a little blackened.

I probably dont need to mention this to you but just in case you or indeed anyone new to 500

FIAT 500 II Hill Holder Question

Got a slight issue with the hill holder. I park noise down on a steep drive both hand brake and ingear when stopped. My first attempt with hill holder almost ended with me rolling though my front door I started the car and put it in reverse grear foot on clutch and foot on brake. Released the brake expecting the car to stay where it was as I find the bite point but no it just rolls forward. What did

is first switched on (amber coloured). It also comes on (and stays on) to signify an ESP or Hill Holder fault. If the HH isnt operating a common fault is an incorrectly adjusted clutch pedal switch (it would also cause issues with the EFI system too- normally a lack of power). If so once confirmed on the Examiner diagnostic its a 5 min job to adjust. Attached Thumbnails   __________________ fiat

FIAT 500 II Fiat 500 Manual Fail

I started Isabella today to drive back to work from the cafe around the corner and the General warning light is on. Hmm. Everything was fine with her otherwise. Got back to the office and downloaded the fiat 500 Manual to discover this gem Quote Engine oil pressure sensor failure The warning light turns on when failure is detected in parking sensors. Even allowing for bad translation I have no idea

Does the oil pressure warning lamp come on during the self-test when switching on the ignition If it does- then I doubt its faulty. The Generic failure lamp is just that- it can mean practically anything is playing up but not serious enough to cause damage (eg just because all the bulbs are working doesnt mean one isnt on its way out and the system is picking up a slightly higher resistance).

I wouldnt rely on any brake system to hold over a ton of metal stationary just by pulling on a wire held by a ratchet and depressing two small brake shoes onto a few square inches of steel.

FIAT 500 II Piercing alarm coming from boot area - any ideas

Afternoon everyone Am hoping someone may be able to assist with this Basically our car has given off a high-pitched piercing alarm sound on three separate occasions now. The first two happened about 3 weeks ago and lasted for about 5 seconds when it was dark and most of the electrics were on. It happened again today and lasted for approx 15 secs but none of the electrics were on at all. The best way

FIAT 500 II Aircon not working on brand new Lounge 1.2

Hi all Went to pick up my brand new Lounge 1.2 yesterday was going through the controls with the salesman and the aircon (standard not automatic climate control) didnt work Nothing at all turned the knobs to all positions no air coming out at any temperature... Salesman checked the fuses which were all apparently OK unfortunately being Saturday afternoon all the technicians had gone home so they cant

Surely it is better to shut doors and windows and have ordinary fans drawing air in from outside This air has to be cooler than the air inside the car. All cars should have some sort of rear vent (my doblo has a couple of holes moulded into the seams on the underside behind the bumper). As the fans suck air from outside this should push the superheated air out of the rear of the car. I dont know what

FIAT 500 II Spark Plugs

Hello There is no way I am ever keeping the same spark plugs more than 10k if they are of the standard spec. I will from now on completely ignore fiats recommendation of 18k changes. This is how they look after 17k. No wonder my car felt a bit sick Attached Thumbnails   __________________ fiat Forum Useful Links Donate to FF    Buy FF Merchandise    Classifieds    FF Insurance

Gap is a bit wide (and was probably too wide from the off putting the coils under extra stress) but the centre electrode looks pretty square still. Theres evidence of coronal discharge - this is more likely due to the gap being so huge. Modern ignition systems are usually happy with a gap of around 1.0mm (40 thou).

FIAT 500 II I got the flashing mileage today

Started the car at work and the bloomin mileage started flashing at me turned the phone off and it stopped flashing. So guessing my Blue thingy has gone belly up a bit. Think I wont bother with that any more... in 1200 miles Ive had a flat battery for no reason 3rd gear that sometimes grates a little and now this I hope the wee thing will last the 3 or 4 years I intend to keep him

Hi Pip A quick question re. flashing mileage I had it flashing several times and had the proxy alingment done at the dealers but it flashed twice since. I was told the flashing can happen if you turn on the ignition too quickly (before the system has time to prime itself) - is that might be the case I was told to turn the key to MAR and wait for lights to go off on dash and THEN switch on the engine. Otherwise the CAN gets confused and flashes the mileage in response. Thanks in advance
