alarms are not standard on the panda range so yours may be a dealer fit or more likely fitted by an independent. I wouldnt go to a dealer as they probably wont be able to sort out the problem. Try to find out who fitted the alarm and go to them or find a decent alarm specialist or auto-electrician. Re alarms I feel these are a complete waste of time these days especially for a car that is unlikely
Hey ive got the exact same car color and everything I have no idea about the alarm system as mine hasnt got one but i do know that mine had an electrical problem not so long ago not the hazard lights but the fog lights used to go off when i indicated .
Hi no I didnt pick up an Airbag wire thankfully and after some cussing and swearing I have now manged to complete the installation thanks to T14086 and B1g1an you guys have been a massive help and without you I wouldnt have managed to finish it. I also spotted that the instruction manual tells you to wire up the CAN wires incorrectly and soon rectified this when nothing was communicating all seems to be fine now. Had loads of trouble getting the one Microwave sensor from drivers side to passenger through behind the centre console and Aircon unit managed it in the end and tucked it behind the carpet to run up the A Post and sit nicely at the top. All seems ok (Touch wood) and the alarm didnt sound last night for any reason even though I slept with the keys just incase it decided to go off due to the rain and the wind. Thanks again guys you rock Most Easterly pandas liked this post
So just to confirm it needs to be connected to the horn wire at the plug which connected to the clock spring stalks unit around the steering shroud Looks like this issue keep cropping up ocassionally httpwww.fiatforum.companda12571...mlpost3275850 Jon.
I own this car now and the alarm is a touch sensitive Goes off randomly usually while I am in the office on a hot day. So still some gremlins to iron out.
OK well I can report the alarm is working perfectly so far. Connecting the actual cables is a real ball-ache I cant even believe a dealer getting this done in an afternoon The front bonnet sensor (a tiny 50p microswitch) works better than expected. As for the above Can-Bus wires I have to say the manual matches the reality for me and there were no problems both colour and position match up. It was almost tempting to assume the adjacent twisted pair were in fact the Can data lines but no in my case trust the manual. As it happens my model also came with 2 un-needed plips these are hilariously useless because they dont trigger the central locking at the same time But works perfectly off the factory remote so there you go. Not for the feint hearted but good now its done Most Easterly pandas liked this post
Go back to the aftermarket fitter and get your money back. I had an upgraded stero fitted by the fiat dealer when I took delivery of my car in April they did a great job you would never know it was not part of the original spec. I even got the bog standard fiat stereo in a box with all its fittings and odds and ends handed to me when I collected the car.
Could be to do with the door closure sensors on the new panda... On other cars this is a plunger mechanism whereas on the new panda its just a flat sensor. You might need your alarm wired into the door itself as opposed to the sensor.
with standard 12V Accu. It could be fitted on 234 or 12 cylinders engine and on 1 or two ignition coil concepts. Ex works price is 30 EURO All cables connectors two resistor and instruction included. See attached pic. Freaky isnt it Design is not his adventage but his function dimension and self mountage possibility - could pass on panda Spartan look Attached Thumbnails   __________________ fiat

Okay thank you for quick answers but the question is as follows I have three wires on top of the
Hi Linzi Sorry to hear youre having so many problems with your panda - did you buy it new or secondhand (Im guessing the latter). How old is the car and how many miles has it done Do you have full fiat service history and all documentation Do you know which main dealer it was taken to If yes you can speak to them and ask them what the diagnostics showed when the car was hooked up to the computer -

In the end it had to go to a main dealer for a diagnostic test and repair. I picked up the car yesterday and found
Never had any problems with my fiat alarm fitted to my eleganza fitted by dealer set with the central locking. Even with the high winds in Blackpool never went off you know its bad when the street lights start swaying in t breeze. Depends how well it is set up.
Ive been waiting until now to finish the job off... Of course I did get it totally wrong this wire is NOTHING to do with the 4 ways it is of course something else and ultimately its just a way of sending a signal over an existing wire to avoid drilling the bulkhead (which I nearly did ironically to sort this problem out) Well done for digging up that old post it seems to be exactly the solution we are both after. I will report back as soon as we get some better weather to finish it off... Most Easterly pandas liked this post
you turn the key in the drivers door it means that the drivers door has no electrical closing mechanism only a switch that triggers the closing of the other doors. So by installing an electrical mechanism from a central locking kit and connecting it to the alarm module by pressing the alarm remote button it will close the drivers door and that will trigger the central locking mechanism. If the fiat
Had they admitted to the problem from day 1 and tried to fix it I wouldnt have minded. But there was a problem and they lied about it. A couple of months ago I asked to drive another panda to see if mine was typical or not. But they told me that they didnt have one available (despite there being half a dozen on the forecourt). I am disappionted with the car and dealer. I am also alarmed to read about

Happened to our selecta once outside radioalarm shop just would not start plenty of fuel I was lucky went to the fuel cut off switch and yes it needed to be pressed down again and we had not hit the kerb or sudden bump to make it trigger
The only way I can think of getting it to work is to add a separate alarm driven locking unit to the drivers door so when the alarm is used the CAN system will assume the key or internal lock button has been used and lockunlock in the normal way Ive got a panda on order so have this problem to solve also but I may not bother as it seems to be a minefield The best solution would be to talk to an alarm installation company as this situation cannot be unique to fiat .
body etc.) to make it cleaner. Neato I thought it was just a different top cover so it would have a standard screw-off oil cap instead of the older pull off type and would otherwise have been like a Punto 75 (1242 8v MPI ). Werent expecting VVT. An ECU governed throttle is a given nowadays. The small reservoir is indeed for the clutch so 1 to the panda no clutch cable Originally Posted by fiatseicento2002
but not sure. If im heading in that direction again ill be aving a drink but unfortunately was in a hurry to get to stanford (thanks swansea larger louts for keeping me up all night setting my alarm off making me sleep in l8 ). and then on the way back i was just too tired All worth it tho best day out ever Such a nice lot on this forum And some awesome cars (most of them members of the fiat
Thanks Jai but not wanting to alarm anyone but ive just done a google search on vehicle recalls and would you believe it there is one there that covers quite a few fiats (including the panda) and is no way related to this fire risk problem. Funny they aint contacted me about that one. Tara Ian

Ive just been fitting an alarm and was alarmed at how easy pandas are to hot wire even tried it myself and even I could do it Jon.
start a Grande Punto Blue Peter Show lol Show us all the tricks of the trades I just went out and check and I got dead locks Just went out and checked and I got dead locks.
