Had a good look at the cabling and also checked for heater volts and both were fine. TBH I doubt I'd ever go near the Fiat dealer, if they can't do even a simple service and blatantly lie about a door seal that was to be replaced then I'd not trust them to diagnose this fault. Plus the year long used car warranty doesn't cover sensors or electronic diagnostic.

The Fiat multiscan would pay for itself on just two sessions so I'll be getting one as soon as.

Re: HELP. Lambda sensor fuse number and location.

Please don't let this descend into a load of complaints and moaning against; dealers, garages, mechanics , Fiat ...... Etc
We know there is good , bad and everything in between , in most things.

Their reputation isn't very good from reading many threads or my own experience, you can't deny that can you.

Ha ha... nice one Jack. I have to admit that one reason I have my health issues is constant work with my younger years being a Radio & TV engineer and working in McKnight motors in Ayr at weekends then fitting clutches in Skodas along with other work on them. Heath went wrong 11 years ago but I worked till 2015 when I was unfairly dismissed. I'm still waiting on a knee operation which has been delayed due to ongoing problems with my heart even after a double CABG. I still like to do most of my own car jobs and after some issues with the dealer I'll not go back.
I'm sure there are good dealers out there but not in this area sadly.

Re: HELP. Lambda sensor fuse number and location.

It is so wrong when we don't get what we paid for , agreed.
I am 100% behind you doing your own car fixes and staying away from dealers.
Stick at it , with luck keeps the mind flexible even when the body is becoming less flexible.

Huge good luck with heart health and knee op.
No kneeling at all on the new knee , when you get it.
Jack

Re: HELP. Lambda sensor fuse number and location.

I know dealers dont give a s*** but do you think home servicing devalues cars by not having a stamped service book...just a thought.

Bit of a sweeping statement about every single dealer of every marque in the world.

Re: HELP. Lambda sensor fuse number and location.

My intention is to keep this Panda as long as possible. I'll have receipts for all the parts and as long as I'm fit I'll keep a note of the work done. All mots will be kept but all the info is available online anyway.
Whether service history really matters in my case is questionable.

Yes we had a similar place here many moons ago. Seems DIY on cars is now a thing of the past.
I'm lucky in having, ramps, axle stands, valve spring compressor, pullers and all the usual hand tools, unfortunately no really heavy can be tackled now.

Re: HELP. Lambda sensor fuse number and location.

Hi.
I would say the car feels a bit better today, it's not right though. I'll try it over the next few days and see if it improves and also check if any codes pop up or irregularities in the live data. Fuel consumption also has dropped which is odd as on a run with the initial fault I got 53mpg. I'm also wondering if there was something up with one of my fuel ups. Will need to wait till the tank is below a quarter before topping up.
