FIAT PUNTO II 188 188AX Mk2 Punto p0351 fault code

I previously talked about my punto shaking and spewing and engine light at startup. Now I had it checked on a computer. Turns out that the error is p0351 Ignition Coil A PrimarySecondary Circuit Malfunction. What is there for me to do Is there anyone here that has a similar experience

What car is it Mk2 8v

Try changing the spark plugs HT leads and coils and clearing the errors. It could be the ECU thats failed though

Sparkplugs have been checked they are good. HT leads and everything else sems unlikely since the problem is only at startup and not even regularly. Error has been cleared but comes back immediately. My best guess is to get hold of a set of proven coils and plug those in give it a test. If the misfire goes away its those if not its the ECU . But I doubt that sicne the ECU would play up at other occasions aswell. It is a mk2 8v ofc.

It just doesnt seem to me that they would so randomly go crazy and not send proper signals...they arent that cheap as well they cost around the same as one coil (admittedly I do need a pair of coils to be sure but nevermind). It just that the coils are much more likely to be at fault since they are a known issue than just some copper cables. And Im not sure the computer would recognise faulty leads as coil fault codes. punto mk2 problem - YouTube punto mk2 problem - YouTube

FIAT PUNTO Intermittent non start p0351 p0352

Hi all please help with this annoying problem we have with a 2001 punto 1.2 8v. Occasionally it fails to start when it does start it runs well with no misfires. When it does not start you can turn the engine over and over to no avail. As soon as we connect our scanner and clear the codes it starts straight away and will run all day maybe for a month without fault. After codes are cleared and is started

Just started car earlier it turned over for a while and when it did start eml was on it ran lumpy for a second then was ok. Started straight way after that. code p0351 is back so i have cleared it. Just as an exercise i pulled the coil wires of and tried to start to see what codes came up it was same codes so deffo related. Wigged pulled on all connections while running but cannot replicate the fault checked plugs leads coils wires ecu wires and connections.Thinking this has to be Ecu now has anyone had an INTERMITTENT ecu on an 8v punto. Please help

When just the light comes on but runs ok scanner shows p0351 when it does not start p0352 comes on also. I can replicate the fault by pulling off the plug to the coils. If i just pull one plug off and try and start (it runs obviously on two cylinders) it i get 0351 or 0352 depending on which one we disconnect connect it back up and it starts ok runs ok. If i pull both coil wires and turn the engine

This is a good diagnostic description httpwww.obd-codes.comp0351

Sparkplugs would create havoc all the time not just intermittenly. I got the same exact code p0351 when my ECU went. It didnt send proper signals to the coils and the OBD reader thought they were directly at fault.

FIAT PUNTO Punto P0351 & More... The story so far

Got an 2003 punto 1.2 8 Valve - 65k genuine - well maintained to service schedule etc by myself. 1. Had an intermittent misfire on start up for about 10 days or so if it appears (which it doesnt always do) it clears itself after a couple of minutes but was enough on one occasion to light the MIL and the code read P0301. 2. Now developed an intermittent starting fault - turn the key and the dash lights

Could be coil could be leads. Id start with the leads (cheaper) but swap the plug with another to give that a better chance of clearing. Clear the codes. If the white smoke persists or if youre loosing coolant compression test. oldhammer liked this post

FIAT PUNTO Missfire P0351

Hi there just a quick question . Got a 2004 punto 1.2 8v . Its developed a bad misfire and has eml on with code p0351 . Been told its ecu . Any ideas .

I still have my doubts -- and theyll probably want to replace the ECU with a factory one. Id print out the ECU tests and take the car to an independent. On the basis of that code I cant see how they can pinpoint the ECU .

FIAT PUNTO (dtc) - p0351 ignition signal coil a fault

Hi first post daughters car punto 2001 1.2 8V engine warning light come on I have changed one coil pack (cleared fault with scanner) light came back on swapped the one I took off (assumed it was still good) with the one left on car (cleared fault with scanner) light came back on Plugs are about 4000 miles old 6 months Car runs and starts OK but tick over is a bit lumpy not noticed anything else. any body got some pointers I could try cheers proview1122

What were the error codes that you got on the scanner or is it just the p0351 When you say lumpy is it misfiring or just rough in general

Originally Posted by acefreecell What were the error codes that you got on the scanner or is it just the p0351 When you say lumpy is it misfiring or just rough in general yes just the one error p0351 No misfire just rough at low revs revs rising and falling about 100 on a 900 ish tick over. thanks

FIAT PUNTO error codes

hi all driving my car(punto mk2 active sport) about half an hour agoit cuts out so left it a few mins. started back upi noticed the engine management light on. when i got home i put my handheld diagnostics on it and came up with these 2 codes... p0350 (generic) ignition coil primarysecondry circuit malfunction p0351 (generic) ignition coil A primarysecondry circuit malfunction. i just want to know

FIAT PUNTO Got a error code but cant understand explanation

I have a punto 1.2 2001 reg and it has just had the head gasket changed. Then it gradually but quickly developed another fault with the engine light code set to on so I bought fiat scanner and elm 327 to read the code. it runs v.poorly the code p0352 - ignition coil (3) explanation given is software is [ ECU ] received very low signal from sensor I dont understand.. what sensor With the engine running

Thought I would share this info that I have found on another forum it seems like a good educated explination but will still test as above 1st before slapping 120 quid on a ecu it a common failure on this type of ECU . how to know this 1 on DIAG you have one of the two faults codes P0352 DTC (Ignition Coil B) or p0351 DTC (Ignition Coil A) 2 replacing the related ignition coil do not resolve the problem.

FIAT PANDA P0351 Error code (Coil Pack)

Hi I have a 2007 1.2l Panda with around 20k on it. It was recently running lumpy and misfiring now and again. then I had the EML light come on. I have a cheap Bluetooth ODB2 reader so fired that up and received a p0351 error code. I looked at the posts about this on the forum (many thanks to all who posted) and it seemed that it was a Coil Pack A failure. Some posts suggested checking the low tension

FIAT PUNTO II 188 188AX coil 2 fatal error

Hi I have a problem with mk2 punto 1.2 8v car runs fine for a few days and then car management light comes on fiatecuscan says coil 2 low signal from sensor fatal. I changed the coils for new ones and have changed them back as fault is still there car starts from cold and runs fine but when I stop and go back to it within 23 hrs it starts to behave wildly running rough and wont idle so I have to limp

Removed ecu and cleaned the plate behind it no way to get at soldered joints unless I remove plactic rivets from plate . Fault says coil 2 but after changing coils over again fault still said coil 2 but on the fiatecuscan graph coil2 is now moving up and down but coil 1 is now static Fault code is p0351 but after changing rear coil it sometimes comes up with P0352 as well starts for a moment then stalls

Fault code says low signal to sensor the fault is present now status fatal On the fiatscan parameters chart coil 1 was recharging around 4.3 ms and coil 2 was static after exchanging coi 2 I managed to get coil 2 to show recharging around 3.3 ms but coil 1 showed static and fault codes p0351 and p0352 appeared but after clearing them fault code p0351 reappeared When I change both coils at the same

FIAT PUNTO testing coil pack

hi ive got a y reg punto 1.2 ive had the engine warning light on with an intermitant misfire so i read the error codes p0170 and p0351. which i believe means intermitant coil pack failure so ive bought a coil pack but i cant figure out which one isnt working. when i put the multimetre leads in the HT sockets i get a reading of about 8.1 on both how do i tell which it is

[QUOTEDavren2922562]p0351 Ignition Coil A PrimarySecondary Circuit Malfunction. It doesnt neccessarily mean you need a new coil. Coil A is number 1. As youve already bought a new coil you may as well fit it in cylinder 1 to check but if it doesnt cure the fault you will need to check the circuit and connectors from the coil to the ECU . Yes.. our panda came-up with that( and others related to misifiring) when it refused to start so I replaced BOTH coil packs ( cheap and easy) still a non-starter Several other faults I too would advise you to fit the pack youve bought clear the codes and then see what happens.. no worry about being new-to-this its my 20th fiat and my first need for FCRs Charlie

Ok guys i need help my fiat puntos got some problems.

Anyways took it to my mates dads garage and he said it could be the coils need changing but I went to the local kwik fit and theyre saying that they dont think its the coils but they think

If it is the ecu do you know anywhere I can buy one for cheap and then just get it fitted

So far then youve replaced the Crank Sensor Cleared the P0352 p0351 which as you said is the Coil Packs (both) Id changing the Spark Plugs - HT leads and the Coil Packs AND CLEARING THE FAULT codeS - failure todo so will mean the car will probably react like it did before thinking its still got the fault and drive around for a bit You know when the coil packshtsparkies are missing - as the car runs rough struggles to accelerate and you can feel the engine shaking badly through the car Ziggy
