Ulysse Engine Anti Pollution System Failure Warning Light

HELP!!!!!!!!

Just to warn you all - this could go on and on and on and on........

Just over a fortnight ago Warning light came on and warning message (Engine anti-pollution system failure) showed. Took car straight to local garage (Not Fiat Dealer) who ran diagnostics and ony thing they said is that it could be pressure sensor on fuel cap?? Warning Light went off and they said if happened again to take to Fiat.

Week later Warning light appeared with same warning message. Took To Stoneacre Fiat in Cesterfield. They ran diagnostics (3Hours) and said they had located problem (traced to Pressure Sensor - which they fitted) 105.00 !!

Drove vehicle 5minutes down the road and the warning light/message came back on.

Took vehicle back to them and it transpires the diagnostics trace to the pressure sensor was not the only diagnosis - there were two others which Fiat deemed less important (Over Boost Valve and also a Temperature Sensor Fault). Thy re-ran diagnostics and Overboost Valve and Temperature Sensor problems re-occurred. Whilst investigating this they also noticed Glow Plug Shorting to earth and glow plug relay burnt!!

Collected car last night and Fiat Invoice states "Found glow plug relay burnt at contacts and glow plugs shorting to earth requires replacement of glow plug relay and plugs will also require wiring loom checking to glow plugs for damage - replaced all low plugs and control relay. Checked all wiring and repaired as required tested OK"

Paid (469.00) and drove away. Car driving perfect.
Got 15 minutes down the road and BEEP - warning light back on and anti-pollution message appears!!!!

Fiat/Stoneacre been to collect car from me today and awaiting their response!!

Feels like someoneis pulling the wool over my eyes.

Anyone had this problem and a quick (and cheap) solution??

Thanks

Re: Ulysse Engine Anti Pollution System Failure Warning Light

Hi, found a possible cheap fix for THAT anti pollution fault... On research this has solved several 'power loss anti pollution fault beeps' Courtesy of a norwegian one on EUROVAN2 COM ... There is alot of more technical reasoning as to why the fault is appearing on the cars on this site... I found this site by accident... German/French/Norwegian Fiat/peugeot/citreon Diesels.

Have 'fun' ??

Hope this will be of help.... I'm going to try this on my ulysse

QUOTE: Finally, the garage has been able to sort out the problems with my 2.2HDI.

After more than 6 months and 17 visits to the garage - they discovered a loose/broken vacuum pipe at the intercooler which has caused all the ESD/ASR Failure and Anti Pollution Failure. The car is finally running perfect !
Thanks bigman1519 thanked for this post

Re: Ulysse Engine Anti Pollution System Failure Warning Light

Wurley1 - Thanks for that. I've just emailed possiblee solutions to my Fiat Dealer. Haven't heard from them for the last three days so maybe posting 10 or so possible solutions will help to remind them I need my car back!!!
By the sounds of things it's a common problem and I'll need to bang my head against a brick wall for a bit longer
I'll keep you posted.

Re: Ulysse Engine Anti Pollution System Failure Warning Light

After being kept I the dark for the last 7 days I contacted Fiat UK Customer service. They contacted garage and advsed them to keep me updated - still didn't work. They advised garage to get in touch with Fiat Technical Dept. Contacted garage who advised they were still "testing" the vehicle. They had done some things and taken it out for a run and light didn't come on. Following morning they took it out again and it came on again. Got call from garage 19 Decmeber to say it was all ready to collect!

Garage advised they have been working on the vehicle all week with various parts being changed and eventually changed the SWIRL VALVE. This seems to have done the trick. Collected car yesteday (19th December) and it drove the 20 or so miles home OK. Will be taking it out for a good run and re-fuelling today (20th) so fingers-crossed it wil be OK.

Car has now had the following parts fitted:

Fuel Cap Pressure sensor
Over Boost Valve
Temperature Sensor
Glow Plugs & Glow Plug Relay
Swirl Valve
