Fuel Cut Off Unavailable

So I was driving my fiat and all of a sudden the warning lights on the dash board came on and it was flashing “fuel cut off unavailable” and “stop start unavailable”. The mileage is also flashing..


I have read that my car thinks it has had an accident but I haven’t. I have tried the reset in the manual to no available and have tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. Any other ideas?

Thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum.

These are the classic symptoms of the all too common hatch wiring fault.

Check the wiring loom carefully where it enters the rear hatch; you'll need to peel back the rubber grommet to do this, and may have to unwrap some tape from the loom. I'd strongly recommend disconnecting the battery before doing this, but you'll need to unlatch (but not lift) the rear hatch first, or use the manual release. Inspecting the wiring with the battery connected could lead to further damage to critical electronic components.

Odds are you'll find some broken wires and/or damaged insulation.

Report back and tell us what you find, and we'll take it from there.

Could also be a knackered battery. Charge it up overnight and see if it clears.
