Question about Fiat 500

Open Question

I have a 1997 fiat cinquecento which was running fine until the cold weather came and the battery went dead. I tryed to jump start it but the fuel injector warning light (red) came on along wih the Fiat Code warning light (orange). I have tried several things like checking some fuses and pressing the fuel inertia switch. Could you please tell me what other things I could try or what the problem might be.

SOURCE: Fuse box layout for 1996 Fiat Cinquecento?

usually on the under side of the fuse box cover there is sticker with the layout of the different fuses. Look in the owners manual that's in the glove box, that should show the layout.

I have a 1996 dodge caravan that starts hard in cold weather!


Cold weather has an adverse affect on batteries. The clicking sound could be from the starter solenoid not receiving enough voltage to energize the starter motor. The engine being hesitant to start and run could indicate the need of new spark plugs, wires, etc.

You may have internal engine damage . broken cam or can.. try to turn the engine manually with a wrench to see if there is any problem while rotate it. In the cold weather when you start engine especially been sitting for too long, engine part need to be lubricated fast otherwise damage it will occur. check and smell the engine oil for strange condition

1997 Cirrus battery went dead. The car ran fine


These cars are known for having engine related electrical problems that can be difficult to track down. One dead sensor is sufficient to prevent start up .

It is possible that your problem had nothing to do with the jump start or battery replacement.

Without a full diagnosis anyone not able to test the vehicle will be guessing.

One thing I would do is to check your fuse panels for all engine related fuses such as fuel pump, ignition and fuel injection to ensure these fuses are sound.
Check all visible wiring carefully including your battery connections. Carefully disconnect and then re-connect the battery at both terminals.

Your best option is to have the car towed to a reputable repairer that is familiar with these cars so he can run a full check and isolate the problem.

Whether you have blown something in the course of jump starting the car is unknown.

In future, when jump starting these older vehicles always turn the headlights on and do not turn them off again whilst the vehicle is running until after the spare battery used for the jump start has been fully disconnected. Everything else should be off.
