FIAT BRAVO Resetting the Service computer

Is there any way of resetting the service computer other then taking it to the dealership as in with my own OBD plug is there software available for it its mainly for the DPF counter which i dont know if it exists or not ever seen anything come up for it. If i leave the spanner to go off on its own should i expect a light come on for the DPF saying the oil has degraded

the book says the oil will need to be changed at least every 2 years OR when the light on the dash comes on (the little red dripping oil can which means either low oil or oil exhausted ) Hope this helps J

its not been serviced yet its for when i do service it.. iv never had that oil light come on to tell me the oils dedrigated dont believe it works lol...The oil thats in at the moment looks terrible looks really thin and i cant even tell where its even up to on the dip stick its rubbish for telling. Think its well over the Max point that fiatECUScan looks really good cheers Gordanovich. i do plan on

FIAT BRAVO Service spanner disappeared and Trip B reset

About 1k miles ago when I turned off the ignition I had a warning saying service Coupon expired and after that a spanner symbol next to the mileometer. This really doesnt bother me as I service the car myself and im not gonna pay to get the light reset.

FIAT 500 II Flashing Oil light - how to reset

Ive just had an oil change but the oil light on the instrument panel is still flashing. I have heard that fiat dealers charge a lot of money to reset it. Can it be done without the electronic equipment A forum in USA suggests turning engine on to 1st position and pumping the gas pedal 5 - 7 times. Ive done this but it didnt work. Any suggestions

clarify With a 1.3 mj diesel I think I will eventually get a service interval warning. But a diesel also has the oil degradation warning which isnt necessarily linked to the service warning light. I think ..... Could any one give me the lowdown on the above - single syllable words in capitals have been rumoured to penetrate my brain. On a good day..... My understanding assuming its similar to my bravo

FIAT BRAVO Service Interval

Hi all Im looking at buying a bravo Sport 1.9 MultiJet diesel. The cars a 2008 57 plate and drives very well. The car has only come into the showroom today and as a result the papers arent available. What the dealer does know is that its done 41k miles and has only one stamp in the book hence probably only one service. This may have been at 18k miles and the second one was never done at 36k as the

guarantee using the menu to check the service interval because it might be already at zero so youd be none of the wiser because after a few hundred miles the service light goes out. Also if like mine bought second hand with two years free servicing sounds great but they havent got the software to reset the service light so I have to go by the mileage. Apparently (dont know true or not ) only fiat

FIAT BRAVO Service time

I have a 58 plate 1.6 eco diesel which is due in for its first service has anyone heard of it being fitted with a special DPS oil filter which can only be changed once the service light comes on and fiat have to reset the computer for you. I was told this my brother who works in the trade. I was going to have my service done by his garage for 60 quid as a favour but now dont want to have to pay more

FIAT BRAVO Engine management light - EGR Related..

Hi I had my engine light intermittently coming on during the last service they mentioned it and it was an intermittent fault with the EGR valve. As we do with these things if its not broken dont fix it. So i left it until now the engine light is constantly on. As the dealer suggested the EGR valve i used the site guides to remove and clean the valve. It was black inside when i took it off. I cleaned

FIAT BRAVO Engine Light on

I was driving home this evening when about 3 minutes into the journey the engine light came on and screen read check engine. The car drove perfectly fine and got home (25 miles mainly on dual carriageway and motorway) without a problem however I noticed that the fan was on what sounded like full power when I stopped to make a drop off half way. I notice this every now and then when I come off the motorway

Would it deteriorate that quickly I checked to make sure the garage reset the degregation reading they showed me when it was plugged in.

FIAT BRAVO Bravo 2.0 Multijet change oil warning

Hi all I was driving my 2009 bravo yesterday and the little red oil light started flashing saying change oil but I had the oil changed in May when I bought it. Ive only done 6500 miles since then.

Ive dipped it and theres plenty of oil in there- topped it up to be safe too though... What do you all think Thanks

FIAT BRAVA 182 Fiat Bravo 1.4 Airbag Problem

I have a problem with my airbag The red light (for airbag) doesnt want to turn off after i turn the car on. I went to a fiat car service and they said that the main plate for airbag is dead...I am not so sure it can be only the problem with some bad connection at connectors (like in Renault clios case where the connectors are under the seat). Namely my light has started to lit after i have washed and

Here you go. There are 25 or so pages on the airbag in the service manual. __________________ fiat Forum Useful Links Donate to FF    Buy FF Merchandise    Classifieds    FF Insurance    How-to Guides    FAQs   Quote   28-07-2006   6 da_risk Get Your Own Title   Join Date Jul 2006 Posts 13 Thanks 0 Trader Rating 0   Re fiat bravo 1.4 Airbag

FIAT BRAVO I I dont think the garage used the correct oil in my 165

My car was in for its first service and I have my suspicions they never used fully synth oil firstly they invoiced me for semi synth then back tracked and said it was a mistake then after nipping round the back of the fiat dealer and talking to the garage they immediatey said it was semi-synth then back tracked when I queried that. fiat are not interested as far as they are concerned they are happy

the fiat service sheets that i have seen all say 18k. the car decided when the oil is to be changed but if its changed as part of the annual service make sure they have reset youre DPF oil change light ( the oil pressure light flashes).

FIAT BRAVO Xenon Headlamp Adjustment

Hi I have just bought an 08 bravo with Xenon headlamps. They are meant to be self adjusting but when on dip they only light up about 20m of road in front of you and there is no bleed of the light. On full beam the lights are amazing but on dip its almost dangerous driving especially out of town and in country roads where there are no street lights. Does anyone else have this problem or any solutions Thanks.

Below is a quote from the Stilo eLEARN but I suspect its a similar system for the bravo. It only applies to vehicles fitted with original gas discharge headlamps. This may explain why you have poor or low aimed light patterns. Dave. Valid for versions withXenon Gas headlamps The self-test management logic also has the recovery function if errors are detected the system no longer works correctly and

FIAT BRAVO Running in mJET

What precautions need to be taken when running in a mJET Also is it worth performing an oil and filter change earlier than the prescribed mileage not for fuel or carbon ingress which Im lead to believe is very low but for particle contamination from the running in process

FIAT BRAVO NON fiat servicing

Is it true that a NON fiat dealer can service my car and it will still have its warrenty providing the mechanic uses proper fiat parts and does the full procedure. I have come across somwhere the bravo service manual that tells you what is changed and what is checked the 18000 mile service reason I am asking over here in NI they are asking 150 notes to do the first service which I feel is a bit high

FIAT BRAVA 182 engine management light popped up

Just got back to the house and the engine management light popped on turned off and powered the car back up and it was still there. This is staying on permenently (it never flashed once when driving) I had noticed a slighty jumpy idle on the car and maybe a slight bit of twitchyness (throttle wise) while driving home this evening which ill guess caused the light to appear. Since I know what the engine

secondary sensor fitted but within 10 mins the car was back to running rich again and the injector light is not clearing this time (it came back yesterday) having issues trying to obtain the main sensor and maybe forced to have to get one from arnold clark I did have one odd conversation with someone at a bosch service garage saying that the car needs to go to fiat to clear the issue as it needs its emission settings reset. Thats the first of me hearing something like that

FIAT BRAVO new member bravo 165

Hi just joined today after hunting for information in changing oil and filter in my new bravo 165. After some trial and error I found removing the under tray plus the small panel beside the drivers side wheel allowed me easy access to the sump plug and inconveniently positioned filter. The sump plug nut is a 13mm which in my opinion is far to small since the thread is around 16 or 17 mm. Felt as if

Hi again I did oil and filter as dealer hadnt reset the service light when serviced at 32000 miles so now they correspond. I wonder how they changed oil as small access panel hadnt been off I wont be waiting until service warnings come on any way I always change my cars oil at around 6 thousand miles. Never hhad engine trouble with any previous car doing it this way. Cheers guys

FIAT BRAVO is it true if

if you dont tell the car that its had a service the DPF will keep regenerating all the time since it will think the oil is old i herd this from another fiat garage when i tried to get some information. He said that if they aint told the computer that its had a service the DPF will be regernating all the time due to it thinkin the oil is old.. he also seemed very shocked that it had only had one oil

Originally Posted by Omad Morning Well thats poppy-cock what actually happens is..... if the oil degredation counter is not reset then the DPF system will fail to function on the count that it thinks the oil has been degraded to much and to save the engine from damage it then sends error messages to the instruments aswell as putting the DPF light on or oil can flashes and finally the vehicle goes into

HHmmmm very strange Have you never had a red flashing oil can light up your display or the message saying oil change Has it never been dealer serviced I have a friend that works for delphi and i know that they are in re-develpoment of the software to incorporate the oil deg reset so maybe the places you get your oil changes done have such software... just a thought. Maybe a dealer should take a look at the parameters of your engine
