HELP: Warning Light (Engine Control System Failure)

HELP: 1st Post: Warning Light (Engine Control System Failure)
Hi members of this superb board, I have a question and was wondering if anybody could help me please.

My wife was driving her Fiat Bravo 1500 SX today along the motorway. When she increased her speed to 80-90mph the cars' ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM FAILURE warning light came on. As soon as she reduced her speed to 70mph or less the warning light went out ? While the light was on, the car was juddering and losing power. Is this problem related to the petrol injectors (which i have seen on this forum as a common problem) ?

Can anybody advise me on what the problem could be, and how much it might cost to get rectified ?

Much appreciated.

Gidman

there is no 1500 bravo, so i assume you mean the 1600?

if you can check the injectors and replace any faulty ones yourself it will cost you 5-10 per injector. at a garage it wil cost you about 130-150 per injector, plus labour charges of approx 50-100.

however there could be many possbile causes of this issue, so you really need to check the injectors using a multimeter to get an idea of the condition of the injectors. dont assume they are the cause. if this is not a 1600 bravo i very much doubt the injectors are a possibility.

Sounds a bit like its missing on a cylinder or two could be one of the coil packs or the crankshaft sensor, if you have a multimeter it is always worth checking the coil packs, its dead easy to do, the usually fail on the primary LT.

Welcome to the forum Ron!, The coil pack on the 1.4 was also used on the 1.2 and quite a few other cars.


here is the test, unplug everything that connects with the coil pack before starting the test.
