How many km's has your twin air done uptill now?
The error was wipe Friday afternoon, and was back the minute i start the car Saturday morning, and it comes and goes when it pleases.
The problem with the MultiAir Module is that internal contacts brake and all kind of failures and errors will occur.

The TwinAir has done exactly 34900 Km at this point.

Re: Panda Twin Air Start & Stop issue.

Damn, that realy sucks. Not many km's at all. Friend of mine had a new uni air unit fitted after he had problems of power loss at high speed. Dealer took a long time to find what it was and first replaced the coils and after that didn't work flush the engine and uni air unit. All for nothing and finally replaced the uni air unit completely wich at first did 't run correctly after the replacement but after a software reset/update all was well. Very dodgy story and ended up with a big bill(even after Fiat gave 50% of on the uni air unit) but now runs perfect again. Sad thing is I'm not really convinced at what the real problem was.
I don't like these stories and also feel the technicians aren't sure where the problems are. Somehow the diagnostic system isn't very helpfull to make a clear assesment of the problem.
Mine is at 37000km now and hasn't missed a beat so I hope it will stay this way.

Re: Panda Twin Air Start & Stop issue.

I will drop it off at the dealer after work Thursday, and they will work on it Friday.
I hope it will be ready Friday afternoon.
Trading it in is pointless in the state it's in, so choose to repair it instead.

Re: Panda Twin Air Start & Stop issue.

You are making the right decision as secondhand Pandas more expensive than here in the UK. Maybe have oil change too Friday (Selenia 0w 30), parts will have 12 month warranty. Hope car is fixed soon.

Surely there are loads of write offs kicking around, it's Italy for goodness sake, my Italian neighbor writes his car off regularly... mind you he was a boy when they came over so his driving style is probably the worst of two worlds, and he drives VW's with the Italian flag on them.
Anyway point is, surely you don't need to fit a new dealer one.

Maybe it will be fixed next week, the car will go back to where i bought it.
Apparently i have a 12 months Top occasion guarantee on the car, not 6 months.

Re: Panda Twin Air Start & Stop issue.

Wednesday they will bring a replacement car (New Nissan Micra) they will drive down to me for the change and than drive my Panda back.
I have to discuss the fact that they plan to drive my Panda back for 130 Km to there location.
Want to know for certain it will not effect the engine, and what insurance they gave me, that it will not damaged the engine, driving that distance.

Re: Panda Twin Air Start & Stop issue.

I don't know, but would a not properly working multi air system have it's effect on fuel consumption. ??

I get max 12.5 km per liter (30 mpg ??) out of it.
