SOURCE: abs light, engine light
I have the same car, same problem and I've been doing some research. It seems to be that the most common problem is a faulty ABS sensor that causes the car to go into "Limp Home Mode". Limp Home Mode is automatically initialized when the car senses that it has some sort of electrical or mechanical issue. This is most likely what your experiencing, because I, and many other X-type owners are as well. Good Luck.

Unfortunately there is no solution to this except to take it back to Iveco for reprogramming.
I am led to believe from my locksmith that there are two types of transponders generally put into cars and vans.
The first is a simple chip wtih a code which matches a code in the car / Van
The second is a chip which has a set of codes. They are read in order and the car / van remembers which one was used last. If you use the wrong code in the sequence then the car / van will ignore it and not let you start the engine.
The Iveco is unfortunately in the second group. If, like me, you snap your key, you can superglue a new key to the old and it works fine. The chip doesn't need to be "too" close to the barrel. Yes, it looks ugly, but it's much cheaper!

Its not unusual for the crankshaft sensor to intermittanly fail. The crank sensors are not real expensive and are not extremely hard to change.
The Crankshaft Position Sensor (CKP) is mounted into the engine block above the starter motor. Engine speed and crankshaft position are provided through the crankshaft position sensor. The sensor generates pulses that are the input sent to the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM interprets the sensor input to determine the crankshaft position. The PCM then uses this position, along with other inputs, to determine injector sequence and ignition timing. The sensor is a Hall effect device combined with an internal magnet. It is also sensitive to steel within a certain distance from it.
Below is a pic of the sensor location.

This sounds a lot like a bad TDC (Top Dead Center) sensor. Of the many sensors on this model vehicle, the TDC sensor failure is common and is one of the few sensor failures that will disable your vehicle.
