Problem with ESC and Hillstart Sensors

Asked by Jun 26, 2014 at 03:46 PM about the 2012 FIAT 500 Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 Fiat 500S. I live overseas on a military installation and had two new tires put on the front end. Every since, my ESC and Hill start sensors go off every time I drive my car simultaneously. When this happens I cannot move the gear shift from park without turning the car off and then starting again. It has taken up to 6-7 times of restarting to make the sensor go off. The shop here says they don't have a Fiat computer to determine the problem.

Hey. Did you check your fuses under the dash. There is a 5 amp fuse more than likely that has blown.

Any shop with an OBD2 reader can read the codes, and tell you what the codes mean. There may be a TSB for this, too. Are you also seeing the ABS light as well? Yes, a tire change can do this. The computer can be a bit dimwitted and need to reset. Try disconnecting the battery for a bit. The computer will then have to read all sensors again.
