Fiat doblo limited to 68mph

Hi all my fiat doblo 2010 1.3 multi jet from southern electric has a speed limiter on at 68mph, how could i remove this? i don't want to go to much faster but its a bit hair raising if i need to takeover on the motorway.



regards john

Re: Fiat doblo limited to 68mph

Hi,
it'll be in the ECU's mapping,

could be a job from a specialist..#
BUT worth plugging in and trying a "factory reset",

Never done it, but have been told if you pull the appropriate fuse out, no longer limited, on a vw anyway,
Fiat might be the same.

May be a separate box. Would have to be unplugged and throttle wires jumpered.

Try asking Southern Electric how they limit them and if you can remove the limiter? You can't lose by asking.

Re: Fiat doblo limited to 68mph

Any updates on speed limiter removal.
Ive got a 2010 Doblo that is limited.
Had it in the fiat dealers today and they say they can only do it by replacing the ecu?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
