Are you certain the alternator is charging the battery? Put a voltmeter across the battery, should be about 12VDC when off. Start (or jump) the car and check again, should be about 14VDC or so. Then if okay, change the voltmeter to AC scale and check again. If there is more than 1.5VAC, then the alternator is bad. If no increase from 12VDC when running, then alternator or regulator is bad. Also make sure the alternator belt is not slipping.
If the alternator checks out, check the starter current draw. Excessive current draw indicates the starter is bad and should be replaced.
Of course, this assumes the battery cables are in good condition and firmly attached. Other wiring in the charging circuit could also contribute to the fault.

Torque settings on a fiat uno 1100 engine


Answer barbo(fiat mechanic) Fiat do not issue torque settings for a punto they use angles so that you can snap your stretch bolts! after contacting fiat and haynes neither of them would give proper torque settings, so i delved into my many tech manuals on fiat fire engines which is what is in your punto and i have successfully changed many fiat punto head gaskets using the following torque settings: stage 1 starting from the centre head bolts tighten to 33nm: stage 2:65nm and finally stage 3: 96nm these torque settings work fine and will probably save you buying new head bolts.

I have a fiat grande punto and i had changed the alternator new but sometimes when i'm driving the battery indicator comes on and the steering will jam then i switch off the engine and start again and it...


The red bulb means your battery is dead, you should see if it can be recharged or if you need a new one.(they check them for free it auto part stores) Clean the battery connectors by taking them off the battery and removing corrosion from both the connector and battery. Adding distilled water to the battery uder the caps if it's not sealed.

Dashboard not working on fiat punto


By no power, do you mean no lights or absolutely no instrument activity? Could be just a bulb or fuse that needs replacing, if you have no instrument activity at all, I would suggest you disconnect/reconnect the battery, if problem persists - might help, and if all else fails then it is possibly a loose or badly connecting wire, take it to an auto electrician, the wiring looms are tricky and it could take a while to find the culprit.

2007 fiat grande punto 1.4 dynamic 5 door starting problems


is engine turning over but not firing if so then i think that this combined with the fact you had a low battery it could have damaged the ECU but to confirm this you will have to back it to a dealer who has access to the dealer service network via the internet ,sorry to give you the bad news it may not even show any engine light fault thats readable.If all this started after a flat battery and a jump start then it could be a classic syndrome applicable to a lot of newer cars ,

Fiat punto 1.2i after starting the car and driving when i park up turn the car off it wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

I have a Diesel Fiat Punto 1.3 multi jet 2003. I cant start the car it keeps turning over and over and will not start. Ive had the pump and injectors checked, changed the starter motor, had new glow plugs....


First I would check to make sure you have the proper fuel pressure at the pump - you should have 2 pumps - one that delivers from the tank, and a high pressure pump for the injectors. Make sure that both are delivering properly - you may need to prime the pumps for quite some time if air got into the lines. Also make sure the cam / crank sensors wiring has no corrosion and is making proper contact. Between 0 to 300/400rpm the signal can be slightly erratic until the engine is started so I would not worry too much about that.
