Question about 2011 Fiat 500

1 Answer

FIAT 500... CD Player keeps cutting out sometimes every few seconds, sometimes a few times a day sometimes not at all. Central locking keeps messing up and not letting me lock my car until i go in a fiddle with the locks a few times (it doesnt let me lock it manually either). Stearing keeps going really light and my speedometor goe's up and down. I have fuel cut off warning and check engine warning. Does anybody no what this might be?

I would have an authorized Fiat mechanic take a look. The steering going light is a servo issue and may be connected with the other issues.

Testimonial: "I have previous been to fiat twice and my car is booked in again tomorrow. Last time they replaced my battery and that didn't do the job. Do you think it could be a wiring problem or a loose connection? Before i purchased my car it was resprayed so i wasn't sure if maybe they did''t put it back together so well. Thanks,"

    Iwould say a bad earth could cause that. Get the electrics checked by someone who is qualified and not someone who wants to sell you another car.

SOURCE: my fiat 2002 fuel cut off switch won't stay down - time for a new one? Or is there a simple fix?

Sorry but the only fix is to replace it, the internal locking pawl is probably worn.

Buy a battery cutoff switch for a few dinero. Install it on a battery post and connect the battery cable to the switch. It also serves as an anti-theft device for when you must leave your car at the airport or in southern Arizona.

Bought 2012 Fiat 500 Pop that has front end damage. Key stuck.

To remove the key, you take off the steering wheel covers. Underneath, there is a red tab to push in. Push in the red tab and remove key. Fuel cut off is your next problem. You use your directionals to reset the airbag module to turn on fuel. The procedure is listed in the owners manual under " in case of accident"

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you replace the MAF (mass air flow) sensor and IACV (idle air control valve). If these two is faulty an erratic idle will be noticeable, lack of power can be expected and sometimes may result to stalling.

The MAF and IACV is located at the throttle body. Once replaced you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

It sounds like the plugs are bad or not heating correctly. Running it out of petrol can mess them up like that sometimes.
