Hi, Strada 1.4 xspace injector light burning

Hi, I have been looking through this forum and has helped me a lot in the past with my previous uno's so thanks a lot for that.

But now I own a 2007 fiat strada 1.4 xspace with the 1.4 fire engine. My problem is the injector light has been burning for the past 2 months. Don't know why and it just stays on. When I turn the ignition on it comes on as always and then goes of and after a second comes back on and stays on. Rather irretating having it burning all the time.

There are absolutely no symptoms why. Engine runs smooth as always, no smoke out the exhaust, no rough idle, no overheating, starts up first swing hot or cold. Only thing I can complain about is the lack of power, but i have only owned the strada for 6 months now and it has been that underpowered from the begining so maybe its just the small 1.4. My other car is a mazda mx6 2.5 V6 so maybe its just the power difference that makes me think its underpowered.

What I have done to try and solve the problem already: serviced the vehicle, new and correct oil and oil filter, correct lazer iridium spark plugs, radiator and engin block flushed and new anti-freeze, new gearbox oil, removed and thouroughly cleaned throttlebody, intake manifold with new gaskets, new air filter,thetmostat replaced, injectors cleaned and new fuel filter, 4-2-1 headers with cat removed, freeflow exhaust all brand new, ecu was reset.

After all that I have done the injector light still keeps burning.

O the vehicle has 171 000km on it.

Please guys any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Plug in an OBD code reader...

Hi, thanks for the reply but dont have an OBD code reader. Closest place with an OBD code reader is more than 170km away from where I live. Any other suggestions?

Buy a copy of MultiECUScan and the appropriate cables (and a windows laptop, if you don't already have one). The only way you'll know what fault the ECU is seeing is to interrogate it, otherwise you'll just end up throwing money at it and getting nowhere.

Hi. The basic engine readers are inexpensive

Google VS600 OBD

That is a good mid.range one.

Your car will probably have a stored fault code from the event that triggered the light.

It may well be the fault is no longer present.. but the fault code needs to be read..and cleared.. before the light will go off.
