FIAT PUNTO Yellow Engine Dashboard Warning Light

The yellow engine dashboard warning light has come on a few days ago and it remains on during the complete ride. Otherwise nothing noticable as driving is concerned. Something to worry about fiat punto 75ELX 2002 Mk2

Its the engine management warning light thats on. It means the ECU has detected a fault somewhere but it could be any number of things. You need to get the code read which will tell you whats wrong. If its still driving ok it may only be a sensor playing up.

Hi About 2 weeks ago as I was driving I noticed the warning light for the engine Control System Failure appeared on the dashboard. I continued home as the manual said it was safe to drive but that I should bring it to a fiat garage to be looked at. However the light never came on again and the car appears to be driving normally.

Hi guys hope you can lend a hand here. When I turn my engine off the oil and engine warning lights come on. As soon as the engine is turned back on they go off again.

Before this I had an issue where the handbrake light would stay on when the engine

OK its fixed itself sweet. Got up this morning went to go for a drive and the warning lights had gone off. Turned the car over and it took a while (figure the battery was almost flat).

Hi All I have had my punto 1.3 JTD for a couple of months now. JUst today the engine management light has come on and staying on. The cars seems ok. Can someone please help - could it be something serious and do I need to take it to fiat or should I just see how it behaves Thanks in advance.

Most decent independant garages will be able to read the fault codes. However its worth noting that fiat

FIAT PUNTO punto hgt engine warning light on

hi all im new here and my partner has a 2004 1.8 hgt. We have had it for 2 years and it has done 46000 miles. We bourght it with the engine warning light on and last year it went thorugh it MOT with the light as an advisary but this year im lead to beleive an illuinated light is a fail when you start it up it says engine failure switch off engine. We had it put on a diagnostics machine and it said

ok well look into getting the front section of the exhaust changed. What will happen if the variator fails Is this warning light on an advisory or fail

This year a lot of stuff has been tightened up around the edges which is why I think maybe. After all its an ECU warning light and one of the main functions of the ECU is to control emissions. If in doubt ask your MOT man.

FIAT PUNTO engine warning light

Hi all I had a new manifold fitted a few weeks ago. No problems then the engine warning light came on later. I found a broken lambda sensor wireI bought a new one rather the repair it. Still the light is on. MY question is thisCan it be reset or programmed Also i think my fuel use seems to have gone up due to the lambda hoping the new one will sort the fuel use. If a garage can connect to the computer can they see where the problem might be thanks for now stu g

Your best bet would be to have it hooked up to a computer to get a proper diagnose what the actual issue rather than keep splashing money out on various parts. However if the issue was solved and the engine light is still on then you can have the light reset either by a garage or by buying fiatECUScan and the cables and do it yourself. Good luck bennyyboy

FIAT PUNTO Engine warning light

Hi all I have just brought a 02 punto sporting speedgear....every now and then the Amber engine light flashes on & off then stops for a while. There is no loss in power or anything else. What does this mean.... Thanx

Firstly can you describe the shape of this engine warning light And if it comes on and goes off according to my instruction manual means nothings wrong it if it begins to stay on constantly then you do have a problem although mines only 1.2 8v active sport so might be different.
