The ASR & ESP Failure is more than likely caused by a faulty brake light switch. This is common in Stilos.

Don't want to worry you unduly, but I had a noise on my front right on the 2'nd day turned out I need a new drive shaft.
I HAD ONLY DONE 28 MILES.(car was brand new).
Total mileage was 28 Miles.
Took six weeks to get a replacement.

ASR and ESP failure was caused in my case due to low battery voltage. Nevertheless their appearence was very brief and these readings dissapeared like they appeared. Instantly.

That noice was actually coming from back wheel.
It was caused by hand break wire that was touching tyre
when I turned.

ASR / ESP failure is still under investigation because they
get tomorrow new version of tester software. The older version
was unable to find the ASR/ESP failure.

I THINK THAT THIS NOISE HAS BEEN DISCUSSED ALREADY! I CANNOT REMEMBER ON WHICH TOPIC. i AM SURE THOUGH THAT THERE WAS A POST SOMEWHERE FROM ATHANASIOS MENTIONING THE WIRE TOUCHING THE TYRE.

Yes,as Pantjo said the wire of the handbrake touches the suspension and when it bends you hear this noise but this is for the rear suspension.Another one is might be the suspension bars gets full of mud when it dry you hear the soil decoke is very common as ive been told.

Hi

Twice now I've suffered from ABS and ASR faults when starting the car left overnight - both times i've turned the ignition off and restarted the car after these two, and all is fine. And both times my dealer doesn't find a fault!!!!!

Apparantly the mechanic (who I must say is pretty G.D. Good) is phoning Fiat Technical and asking them. He did ask me if i rested my foot on the clutch pedal - apparantly there is a switch on the clutch pedal which tells the car if the clutch is engaged or disengaged. Resting your foot on it can cause dodgy signals to be set to the car, hence a fault. He also asked if it was just a light i saw, or if it was the full-blown "ASR failure" with the spanner icon.

Anybody got any ideas??

Hi guys.... just found these forums. Had a X plate Punto for 3 years and recently got me a Stilo 1.2 active.

When I picked up the stilo, I had problems with ABS and EBS failures flashing up. I had my dealer take a look and they found the fuse in the engine bay was loose. The replaced it securely and everything has been fine since. Dunno if this helps...

Cheers

I had the abs/asr failure errors on startup while having the airbag error appearing. took it in to resolve and while fixing the airbag error (seat sensor) it was also able to resolve the abs/asr error.
also had the noise from the rear left wheel, was the hand brake cable also

ASR & ESP failure was caused by insufficient amount of "cold" fluid in air conditioner...
There should be 500mg cold fluid in air conditioner and in my car was
only 380mg...
Now ASR & ESP failure is solved!:D
