New 146 Owner
Hi all, I've been having a nosey around, so I thought I'd ask a few questions
Bought a '99T 2.0ti 146 a couple of weeks ago, and when we got it, it kept cutting out and flashing the injector light. While driving it, it felt like crap in the fuel lines, so I figured while I was waiting for my OBD adapter to arrive, I ran the fuel tank as low as possible, chucked in some injector cleaner, half a tank of fuel, and drive it like I stole it for 50 miles.
Sure enough that appears to have solved the problem for now.
So when the leads arrived, I downloaded FiatECUScan and hooked the car up. The only two faults were a Lambda Sensor and Water Sensor issue. I reset these, and they haven't reappeared yet. Although the does seem rather hesitant at arrounf 2-3000 reves, which i guess is when you are about to sppol the turbo up, or it is spooling down. To me this does tie in with the Lambda problem, but no errors codes yet. So for the time being I'm happy to leave this like it is, and keep an eye on it.
The problem that has got me baffled is, after 10mins at motorway speed both the ABS and Airbag light comes on, turning the ignition off resets the problem, but it returns again after returning to motorway speed for a couple of mins. Having played on an empty motorway last night, the appears to be no pattern to when the fault occurs, i.e. it is not related to temp, a specific speed, time driven at speed, etc. but it is predictable that it will come on shortly after getting to motorway speed. Does anybody have any ideas?
