Strange Sidelight Failure


I have a 53 reg Fiat Punto 1.2 8v Active Sport. . . It is completely fine except one really strange fault. Occasionaly the driver side sidelight doesnt work but the passenger side one does. At first I thought this was the bulb, but after about an hour when i tried the light again, both lights worked fine.

It keeps doing this, one time not working, and the next time working fine. Iv taken the bulb out and checked the connectors and they seem fine, but i still have the same problem. . . any ideas please?

    i haven't tried a new bulb yet. I thought that because it was still working (all be it intermitently) that the bulb was fine and that the problem was something to do with the electrics. Also it is the front sidelight.

My fiat punto 1.2 active has been cutting out for no reason it's a 53 plate running very rich on fuel just had an oxygen censor and a cooling censor fixed still running very rich on fuel

Sure they replaced the correct coolant sensor (not the one for the dash gauge)? Could be leaky fuel injector(s), bad fuel pressure regulator.

R REG PUNTO 16V SPORT engine not running battery fine electric windows lights etc work so battery fine turn key and nothing ...

If you hear a clicking you still might not have enough battery power to start it.
If you hear the motor turn over, but not start you might have a fuel, or spark issue.

Don't even try adjust or open the unit. Call the dealer or take it back to him or you will invalidate your warranty and that is not worth it. Let the dealer worry about it.

I have a Fiat Punto (53 reg) and the rear wiper is not working, have checked fuse and can't see any loose wires. any ideas

It is more than likely that the motor has burnt out!
You can get one off the dealer or a decent second hand one from a breakers. But make sure that he shows you it working before you buy it. If you get one and are having trouble putting installing it let us know.
