Cool new 1.4 sporting few problems

I have had new car for a 4 days now and over the last 2 i have had a warning light come on (3 times) and the message saying hill hold failure please consult your manual. The manual say contact fiat has anyone else had this proplem if so was it easy to sort.

Also a less so inportant one when i plug my mp3 player in i can only skip to the next track manualy if i just let it play it will repeat the same track over and over again. my player does not do this when i listen to it outside my car. I can not find a repeat option anywhere on the car anyone got any ideas.
Apart from that am well pleased with it!!!!!

As for the blue and me, when your parked up go into media player then settings and theres a repeat function which is ON by default .

Re: new 1.4 sporting few problems

Presumably you have the Blue&Me instruction book? Page 52:
Press the "Windows" button and say "Shuffle Off"

Regarding the 'Hill Holder'....I've been told that disconnecting the car battery using the 'negative' quick release clip and leaving it off for 30 minutes cures a multitude of 'glitches'
Nice car though isn't it.....great value for money!

Re: new 1.4 sporting few problems

Excuse me, press the "Windows" button and say "Loop Off".
That will deactivate the 'Track Repeat' feature.

If either of those 2 suggestions don't work it is quite possible that the Mp3 player isn't entirely compatible.
The most reliable way of doing it is to buy a USB Stick and load your songs onto it.
Good luck.

I had the problem with the hill holder saying that it was unavailable, my ABS and EBD went at the same time. Took it to the dealer and it was a faulty earth, replaced, problem solved ...for now lol.

For the media player, if you press the windows key and say "repeat off" it should solve the problem, drove me mad for ages.

Re: new 1.4 sporting few problems

Constant hill holder failure everytime I brake.

Warning light remains until a few hours later.

Turning engine off and then on again will not clear it.

Re: new 1.4 sporting few problems

Re: new 1.4 sporting few problems

Cheers, I'll give it a try and see what happens.

Maybe I'm depressing the clutch to early while braking
