Please Help P181D

Hello Everyone. I have a problem with my 2010 1.4 500C. After anything from 1 day to 2 weeks the dash warning light comes when driving. My local garage have been looking at it and can't work it out. The Fault code is P181D. Which they tell me it's to do with the gear natural switch/sensor. The have reset it a number of times and have now just replaced the switch/sensor and rest it again but it has just come back. They say that it will need to go to a fiat main dealer who want over 100 just to look at it. Has any one else had this problem as any help would be really appreciated. Many thanks.

Re: Please Help P181D

Hi. And welcome.

Is this a duologic..?

That code sounds wrong to me.. a P code should be 4 digits.. maybe your 'letter' at the end should br a number..

Where abouts are you based?

Somebody may have the correct kit to read it properly

Charlie

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear of your difficulties.

Unfortunately trying to fault find a Fiat using generic scanning tools is generally a losing game.

You need better diagnostics than you'll find in most general purpose independent garages. MultiECUscan (google it) will do the job for less than a single main dealer diagnostic; alternatively you could try to find an independent Fiat specialist.

It's possible someone local to you may be able to help out; many of us here have a working copy of multiecuscan. Whereabouts are you located?
