Just pulled my Auto Trail Apache out of storage park tonight to bring home and clean up Drove it last week with no problems). 160hp version and goes very well. The Engine management light came on a couple of miles from home and engine went into "limp mode" . I guess i'll need to take it to my local Fiat dealer so they can do the diagnostics. Has anyone had a similar experience and what was the outcome?
Hi, the same thing happened to me last week. I am in Spain and it wouldn't start. When it did I could not rev it and it was bellowing out smoke.
I took it to a Fiat dealer in Salamanca who informed me that I needed a new part that would have taken 4 days to come. It seemed to clear itself so he told me that I could wait until I get back to the UK, if I wanted.
It seems to be ok now and I am not back until June, so fingers crossed that it will be alright until then.
I have had the engine management light come on twice on my bus. The first time it just needed an injection flash and the second time was the throttle valve which failed and a new part had to be ordered and fitted.
It happened to us last year (2008 bessacarr) took it to Fiat dealer. They ran it up on the computer and couldn't find a fault so they reset it. They said "sometimes they trick themselves, especially if the battery has been very low or flat". Hasn't happened since touch wood.
Dennis, where is the ECU?, is this in the engine bay or under the facia. I only have 2000 miles on this motor so don't expect any major component failure. Saying that FIAT always stood for "Fix It Again Tomorrow"
