Unhappy ESP + Hill Holder

Ive got a GP T-Jet and occasionally when driving down the road there is quite a loud beep then the display shows Hill Holder + ESP failure see handbook or something to that affect and the ASR OFF button lights up and I can't turn it back on without turning the engine off and restarting it. It doesn't do it all the time just seems to do it loads all at once then nothing for a week or two.
Anyone know what this is or experienced it before? Its still under warranty so FIAT will fix it but I would like to know what they need to do because they can be really useless sometimes. They gave me a service book with all the details and service dates for a 500 1.4 sport and its know been 2 months and im still waiting for a new one, so don't want to just let them loose on it without prior knowledge myself.

Thanks Jack

salesman would of gave you the wrong book not the techs who will be working on the car so I think its unfair calling them useless

Re: ESP + Hill Holder

No sorry wasn't clear I meant just office people, if I could talk straight to the techs it would be fine they would understand and hopefully fix it but the communication there is terrible, I took my 500 in to get a new spring to hold the headlight bulbs as it had gone slack, I got it back with the same problem, but it had been washed and hoovered which was nice of them!

Thanks Jack

Free car wash aint bad then

Ask (no demand) to speak to the tech who is going to be working on your car, if they refuse go elsewhere

Re: ESP + Hill Holder

My car had the same problem with the hill holder.
I think they said it was a broken switch which meant that the computer didnt know when the break was pressed so no "goodies" linked with the breaks worked like the esp hill holder etc.

My hill holder didnt work every time before but now its fine.

Just take it to fiat you never know when you might need the esp.
