Re: Same old story fuel pump gage

the fuel gauge fault is common, try banging your fist above it. if that fixes it, it means there is a fault inside the instrument panel or a loose connector behind it. if the fist method has no effect it means the problem is more likely to be the fuel gauge sender unit at the pump, which can be accessed by removing the round plastic panel under the boot carpet.

the erratic idle is often fixed by cleaning out the throttle body on the 1.2 model. if that fails you may have a throttle position sensor fault, which would bring on the fuel injection fault light on the dash. if thats the case go to a dealer for a diagnostic.

Re: Same old story fuel pump gage

there is no fuel pump light, i think you mean the fuel injection system fault light (looks like a hose with water coming out).

the fuel injection system fault light on fiats is the same and the engine management light on other brands. it simply means the ecu has noticed a fault or out of range signal. that could be anything, so a diagnostic at a dealer is probably the best thing to do at this stage.
