Strange thing 147 2.0 ts

Hi to all

My beauty has been nagging me for a week now, she got the motor control failure light on and seems to have no running faults attall !!! Allbeit, on occasion the idle stays for a few seconds higher than normal and then sorts itself out quickly. It did however produce a noise some weeks ago whn driving with window down between two buildings i noticed what seemed like pinking sound when acceloarting in forth at 40mph, though no pinking noise after that. Now the light is on and this eratic idle. So guys and gals, what to do is my question ?? I will say it drives lush and dont mis a beat other than the two things mentioned you would understand why the light is on. lastly i did disconnect battery for a day in hope of the ecu forgetting it but hey it didnt !! cheers kevin

These errors, even if it is fixed needs to be cleared from the ECU. We can sit here and speculate if your MAF got a loose connection or your lambda sensor is faulty, but in any case, you got to hook up diagnostics. You can do it yourself with a ELM or OBD cable for 7, and free FiatECUSCan. Search google/forum for more info.
