Re: Motor Control System Failure
I had this fault on my 156 - the car didnt start, left it five mins and then it started, then displayed motor control fault - but drove as normal.
Im defo no expert but i believe this warning can come on for many reasons.
After having my car code read it was the crankshaft sensor failing. Have has this replaced now - all appears fine.
The motor control fault on the display did clear itself later each day, but think that was because the sensor was only failing - and had not completely failed.
Think the only way you will know what the problem is, will be to have it code read - ive had mine done twice, first go was £25, next garage was £35....doesnt have to be a dealer - the £25 garage was a local tyre and exhaust place, £35 was at a Fiat/Alfa specialist (not a dealer).
