Fiat Stilo 1.9 Dynamic Pulling my hair out!

Hi there,

I've been having ongoing problems with my Stilo 1.9 Dynamic Jtd. Whenever it is damp or raining the engine warning light comes on and the car goes into limp mode. The engine still revs up but crawls along at a snails pace.

This problem has been occurring for over a year and I have spent a small fortune on repairs. The latest diagnosis from the computer is a faulty fuel sensor but I am not so sure particularly as this was replaced approximately 3 years ago.

As it's been dry for the last couple of days all has been well. So this afternoon before I went back to the garage I took it to a car wash and low and behold when I left after 50 yards it went into limp mode!

I would be really grateful if anyone could offer any advice or has experienced similar problems?

Best wishes,
Paul

Is the large black battery cover fitted?
