Re: Has this happened to your fiat 500

Trust me you need to get the hatch wiring fixed properly no quick fixes, if you're keeping the car for ANY length of time otherwise your problems will only get worse and you'll waste even more time going backwards and forwards.

Unhappy Re: Has this happened to your fiat 500

Yes you are right. It's very inconvenient for me , having to do without my car and I rely on my father a lot. He has wasted a lot of time and effort taking the car back and forth. Obviously I don't want to spend more than necessary. I'm going to have to find someone / garage local to me in South London and go from there. It couldn't be a fuse could it? What was really gauling was that the problem didn't present itself yesterday( in the mechanic's presence) and my father was made to look like a fool.

NO!

Your symptoms are the same as many others have experienced. It will be the hatch wiring. This cannot be escaped from.

Re: Has this happened to your fiat 500

Thanks. I will have to get it looked at locally. I will make an enquiry with the local fiat dealership and get a quote for the wiring and go from there. Obviously I won't just get one quote.

Re your 2 replies, I daresay you are miles away from me.You've indicated 120 fitted! If you are far from me, how much would it cost just for supply and are you in a position to guarantee that it would work once fitted?
Thanks.

Re: Has this happened to your fiat 500

Sorry commenting on this as for some reason I can't start a new post.

Did you get this problem sorted? Driving to work this morning the red 'door open' symbol appeared so I stopped, open door and closed. Drove off and it kept flashing on and off but the warning said it was actually the boot open. I never use my boot as don't want the wires to fray so it wouldn't have been open.

Anybody any ideas?
