Was it a FIAT service or some shady garage? Either way, don't settle for anything less than your car getting fixed for free, and I'd demand a courtesy car too as it's their fault that yours won't go.

Find out what make sparkplugs are used for the 1999+ 8V 1242cc model which i have they should be NGK BKR5EZ or Champion RC10YCC plugs. If it was me I would just replace them to be on the safe side.

the problem was the fuse had blown in the imobiliser relay so it was checking for the key at the set time but cause the fuce had gone the key wasnt being seen so it was cutting out.
