Abarth Turismo 2012

Can anyone help
I have an Abarth automatic and am having an intermittent problem with the gears when I start the car. On ignition I press either 1st or reverse and the car wonít move! I have turn the engine on and off four or five times before it engages. I have taken car to an Abarth dealership but it didnít replicate the problem and a computer check said there was nothing wrong, but itís still doing it. Hope someone can help me solve this problem .

Re: Abarth Turismo 2012

I posted on this elsewhere. I have a similar problem with my 2012 Abarth 500c. Usually when you unlock the car and open the drivers door you hear a motor/pump spinning up for a couple of seconds. Sometimes this doesn’t happen and I get the exact problem you describe. For now I just get out of the car, lock the door, wait 30 secs and then unlock and try again. It usually works. I think it might be due to a door switch or bad wiring like in the boot lid. Not had time to really dig into it yet.

Thatís the gearbox priming. This should happen as soon as you unlock the doors.

If the interior light triggers.. the car knows the door is open

Re: Abarth Turismo 2012

Itís a very common problem for the pump to fail, the pump is a fiat parts bin part so the same on everything from a 2001 Punto to a Ferrari, but itís relatively easy to replace
