Re: Low oil pressure causing loads of errors

HI.
If you are split between two dealer get onto Fiat customer service and tell them you want your money back. You really should have told the supplying dealer as soon as you had problems. The local dealer will not be making anything on this so why should they put you ahead of customers who bought from them? (playing devils advocate here).

This may complicate things if you want to legally reject the car.

One important question before advising you further: are you the first registered keeper of the car, or was it preregistered by the supplying dealer?

Re: Low oil pressure causing loads of errors

I'm the first registered keeper. Fiat UK are aware of the supplying/repairing dealer issue. I will however get in touch with the supplier next week but I'm giving the repairing dealer one more (final) chance before I get a bit more heavy-handed.

That helps; historically Fiat have been more generous to first owners when dealing with cases such as yours.

I'd agree that you should do everything possible to find an amicable solution to this. Going to law will be time consuming, stressful, and potentially costly. If you can agree a solution with Fiat CS, this will be the easiest and quickest way of dealing with your unfortunate situation. If it doesn't get fixed properly this time, personally I'd stand firm in asking Fiat CS to provide either a replacement new car or a refund.

Re: Low oil pressure causing loads of errors

Hi.
I just wonder if the major problem here is the training given to these so called "Mechanics" is up to the mark. From what I can see is they are reading the codes and then have no idea how to proceed. It's all very well saying the TA is a high tech engine which it is but it still follows principals that that were laid down in the 19th century.
All the way through this thread I have read about the "garage" stabbing about in the dark with absolutely no fault finding. I have been in Electronics all my life and not only that worked in a garage workshop for many years at weekends stripping engines, gearboxes, clutches etc Oh and yes rebuilding them. The "mechanic" should be able to read the codes and work out what they mean and then proceed. The battery has been mentioned, It's a good staring point, earth's should have been tested, the loom should have been examined for chafing, plugs and sockets checked for loose connections or pins, time consuming yes but the adage of getting a repair done first time round seems to be sadly lacking here.
There could be an intermittent fault in the ECU or BCU or any other sensor, the senior tech should have been allocated the car and left with it till repaired, that way the customer would have been happier and Fiat wouldn't have egg on their face yet again.
Thanks Ceidio thanked for this post
