Re: Red Injector warning light comes on.

Have you checked the wiring (as suggested earlier by Tinkerbert) to the ignition switch/immobiliser ring? The chip in your key will communicate with the car via the ring and if it has no signal from the ecu, the ecu in turn will assume an illegitimate key. It's not a brand new car so the wiring could be in poor condition or may have just worked loose and been pulled out when you changed the coils over. I believe there is a wiring diagram in the back of the Haynes manual

Sometimes, when working on electrics and disconnecting the battery the ECU will go out of sync with the chip in the your key. When that happens it is a case of manually re-syncing and unfortunately that means you need that code.

Personally I would find the cheapest Auto-Locksmith and get it from them.
It's a shame you're not a lot closer as we could get it for you. At discounted, forum member rate of course

Why does distance matter, don't you just need the VIN and reg number?

Re: Red Injector warning light comes on.

I have carefully checked the wiring to the ignition switch/immobiliser ring it is fine as is the wiring from both coil packs.

Re: Red Injector warning light comes on.

Sounds like it could be a sync issue then.
I'll find out on Monday if I can get you the code to resync just from VIN and Reg

Re: Red Injector warning light comes on.

Hey.

I've had a look into getting the code for you and it would work out much cheaper and easier if you got it from Fiat.

Sorry mate.

Re: Red Injector warning light comes on.

Hi Tinkerbert,
Many thanks for your help. It looks like I will have to pay Fiat £35 + Vat to give me 5 numbers. This is my first Fiat and it will definately be my last.

The car will not start. The code key warning light is on continuously and there is no power to the ignition coil packs.

Re: Red Injector warning light comes on.

is it SPI? If it is message gazzaman for a ECU chip, and this will disable the immob code.

and it cost £12 or something

Re: Red Injector warning light comes on.

A silly question but how do I find out if it is a SPI?

I think 1999 is SPI. To be sure, if you have 1 injector then your car is SPI.
