I purchased a used 2015 model and drove home 900 miles trouble free. 4 miles from home the abs light, power steering light, ESC service warning, air bag warning, service hill holder warning.

Asked by Apr 16, 2017 at 12:56 PM about the 2015 FIAT 500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Many components warning lights and messages. Obviously an electrical
issue. I cleaned all the grounds ate the batty, frame, and ecm. Where can I
look next?

Take it to a nearby Fiat dealer for service. I hope you don't find out the hard way that FIAT stands for Fix It Again Tony. Those little cars have more than their share of trouble.

I'm going through the same thing, but not quite as bad. The car can be "oversensitive" and set off lights. There are TSB's for most of them, and a Fiat service center will have to reflash the computer. They DON'T reflash the computer unless you specifically ask them to do it and tell them why. Head to the nearest car parts store or service station. Ask them to read the stored codes so you know what sensors are acting out. They could be reading a one time glitch, and go off. ABS/ESC/Hill start could be the brake light switch. Power steering would be obvious if it wasn't working. I never had the airbag light come on (so far). The point is one light can flick on others. It makes no sense and it's aggravating. From what I understand. if they aren't flashing, it just means some sensor, somewhere, read a fault and stored the code. If they are flashing, something is failing.
