159 2,0jtd won´t start when warm and stoppes during driving.

Hi all,

Got a 2010 159 with a 2,0jtd engine.
Have been very happy with her the last five years.

The last two weeks I have been having problems with her. She starts when she is cold, but will not start when she is warm.
If I take the key out and wait a while after the glow plug lamp is out, she usually starts.

Today she has stopped twice during driving. Both times on low revs (below 2000rpm).
The "Check engine light" came on.
I will of course need to get her to the dealer, but is there anything I can check myself?
I do have the Fiat ECUscan program, so I could possibly check if I can find any fault codes?

Any ideas?

best regards

Said it yourself - read the codes. Method is read the codes and note them but don't act on those as some may be quite old and now irrelevant to the current fault. Clear the codes and take it for a drive and see what codes re-appear.
