Insulation failure somewhere in the loom perhaps Id check the wiring carefully at the point of entry to the doors starting with the rear hatch - its a relatively common failure point.
Thanks ive checked these. These are not the course of the problem. Al gummis are OK and the special black wraping is on spot. Any other suggestions
Mine doesnt. Although it does have an entirely pointless remote boot release button (pointless since physically lifting the hatch involves sweezing the release button anyway).
Originally Posted by pearce_jj (pointless since physically lifting the hatch involves sweezing the release button anyway). Not if youve unlocked it with the boot only button. It is actually opened for you and when you shut it you dont need to lock the car.... For the terminally lazy Mine has an oddity which I do not know if others have. The drivers window can be fully opened & closed but the left hand

The drivers window can be fully opened & closed but the left hand window can only be fully opened at a touch of the button. It has to be held till it is fully closed (no auto close).... This is normal its a safety feature.

So he has had his 500 1.3 Lounge just under a year now and has had endless fun and no problems as of yet however the gremlins have started appearing. When he takes the car to work he only takes the basic key not the remote one and last week the car stopped

Right pain in the arse. thats a bit short sighted of them If I was him I wouldnt buy from them in the future
Hi I had drivers lock completely fail as it would remotely lock but not actually (you could open it from outside). Had it fixed under warranty (new lock and handle fitted) by local fiat dealer. It was done in about an hour so no courtesy car needed but I had service done by them too and had a courtesy car for ten pounds insurance fee (as I havent bought the car from them either). Hope this helps
Having similar problems myself. The door tries to lock when the remote is pressed but I have noticed that the handle on the inside (on the drivers side) doesnt go all the way in to the position that it should when it is fully locked. So the door tries to lock and then unlocks immediately. This only seems to happen when the weather is freezing. (which it has been lately) A few good backward and forward

well good news Ive got central locking now yay. as soon as I find a car with remote central locking Ill be happy so now Im goin to try and get my alarm working. Does anybody know what type of locking system the seicentos have Ive got a choice of Positive lock system Negative lock system Negative one wire system Positive one wire system Reverse polarity system Vacuum door lock system (dam sure its not this one) The alarm has 4 wires 10a (-)lock()unlock output 10a ()lock(-)unlock output (-) 500mA unlock output (-) 500mA lock output
Negative lock system when using WhiteYellow Light blueRed wires. -500mA lockunlock.
the remote central locking not working. I have changed the battery in it and it works 5 or 6 times and then stops. Im sure battery life should be longer than this so think I may have a fault with the key fob. Ive had my car 18 months now & my remote is still working fine on the original battery - so if its draining that fast unfortunately you do indeed have a problem. Replacement keys for modern fiats
I have a single wire from my alarm system that has a 500mA Ground output. I know this can be used to control the central locking and it involves using a relay. Could anyone tell me exactly how And is it easy to spot the central locking behind the glove box Thanks
I was hoping our soon to arrive 500 (lounge) had this feature as weve had it before on a Clio and a BMW and it is a very useful feature - good to hear it has. The Clio from memory used to unlock the central locking as you turned the ignition off and the BMW needed 2 pulls on the internal door handle what do you do in the 500 to unlock it after its locked in this way.. Cheers guys..

Did you fix it Was it the wiring or the switch Im due to take my 500 into the dealer tomorrow at 9am been told if its the wiring its not covered on the warranty so Im hoping its the switch.
door locks are pretty sturdy but everything wears out my moneys on the loom connector door to A post though either a high resistance or a broken wire TRY HAVING THE DOOR OPEN CLOSE THE CATCH WITH A SCREWDRIVER AS IF IT WAS SHUT AND THEN SEE IF ANYTHING WORKS ALSO PULL UP THE LOOM CONNECTER locking device and make and break the loom connecter 10 times oops caps quickest way to confirm is to borrow another door off a punto and try their key in their lock (dont laugh) dont go to fiat it would be cheaper to buy a new abarth 500

Alternatively wire one of these into the locking system trigger wire httpcgi.ebay.co.ukTRUCK-TRAILER-...2ht_500wt_922

I wonder if the 500 does it. They always do it. Ill go over and ask.
Wow that is a big blow Hopefully though you will get it sorted out fairly soon though it sounds like a horrible experience. I cant offer any technical help but I do agree 100% with what jnoiles said in post 4. In my opinion you should get fiat Customer Services involved to make sure that the official channels are pursued properly and that it is recorded centrally. Am not saying your dealer wont do
