From the pic it's the Engine management light.

Your handbook will probably say something along the lines of

"Do not drive. Contact your nearest dealer immediately"
#5
it means your approaching 88 miles per hour and the flux capacitor is about to kick in..... come standard in the puntos they do.
#6
Just keep driving it untill it goes red.

You need to take it to someone with a Fiat diagnostics tool to read the fault off the ECU so you can get the problem fixed, have them print the report off or write it down then reset the fault code and see if it comes back.

If it's still in warranty just take it straight to Fiat don't clear the codes or they won't bother investigating.

You can still drive it but it will be on limp home mode and will guzzle the fuel

There's a similar light in my Renault Scenic, which came on and went off again. I forgot all about it until a couple of months later when the car broke down completely (after an interview for a job I failed to get :cry: ).

Can't remember what it was now, though, except that it wasn't cheap!! :whistling:

Something to do with engine temperature I think

One of the many temperature sensors, but they are dirt cheap to replace unless they fleeced you

No it wasn't the sensor that was expensive - though if the sensor was faulty then it may have been something to do with the damage caused by continuing to drive a car with a faulty sensor ...

We've got a car in our workshops ATM, where a light came on. The owner asks us what it's for and we said it's an engine warning light and that he should use the free recovery to get it here for us to look at. He forgot !! Two weeks later he phones back and says he forgot, but the noise from under the bonnett is too loud to hear his radio. Eventually AA bring it in, and the recovery guy is wetting himself. Basically, he's cooked the engine, and it is only just managing to run on one cylinder. When the AA guy asked the other driver why he didn't take our advice before, he said he thought it would cost him aa lot of money for us to turn the warning light off. He is now looking at an £8000 engine bill, and only has TPFT insurance, so couldn't even claim.

You saying someone with fully comprehensive insurance could claim a repair on their engine? :oops: new one on me

nice story though, should have drove the dagger deeper though and said you'd have cleared the engine code for free
