How about trying switching the ignition on and off 10 times in very quick succession, should reset the systems and then you can see if the fault stays, if it does then you'll need to get the car plugged in

Re: Stop and Start Unavailable... Check Engine! TWO WARNING LIGHTS!?!? HELP!

You can say you have the same problem, but with two light diagnostic you can not find the cause.
With theses lights, you can only say S&S don't work.
But to find what is going wrong, you have to read the diag code, it can be a dozen of different thing doing this.

Or the best thing, go to you dealer and they check it. They are not only there to sale cars
Keep us informed, if it is always the same cause for most S&S problems, next users will have more informations.

Re: Stop and Start Unavailable... Check Engine! TWO WARNING LIGHTS!?!? HELP!

The "start & stop unavailable... check engine" + CEL and triangle light came up this morning.

I was driving halfway and felt a loss of engine power. So I anticipated the CEL and messages popping up and it did. I couldn't stop anyhow where I was so I ignored it and continued driving to my destination in limp home mode.

It was the 3rd time it has ever happened to my car.

1st time, it was probably due to the sensors getting wet after an overnight rain.

2nd time, I was cleaning the engine bay and sprayed too much water around the gearbox area. Mine is a selespeed.

3rd time which was this morning, it was again probably due to the overnight rain and sensors getting wet.

In all occasions, the CEL went away after restarting the engine 3 times. The issues were all water related so I believe it was due to one of the sensors controlling start & stop around the gearbox getting wet.

Had the same problem, stop & start unavailable, Check engine. (Punto evo 1.4)

I've just driven 200+ miles, could be something to do with the distance, but I've also seen the warning after trying to pull off in the wrong gear (Be kind, I've only been driving a few months)

Just had a check myself, disconnected the battery and the leads going to the right of the engine (not a clue what they are, I think the ECU or some such) warning lights vanished, and stop/start working again.

I'm going to have my dealership check it over once I get home, will add any information they give me then, and I will also upload a photo showing what I disconnected (and reconnected) just in case it helps someone else.

So I went looking for a solution and found that turning the ignition key several times (about 6) in rapid succession without actually starting the engine will reset the system, although it can take a few tries...

This worked for me. I had the same problem with my Punto Evo Dynamic 2010 1.4. I tried the key thing and the lights were gone.
