This warning light illuminates in red when the engine has started and should extinguish soon after. If the low battery charge warning symbol illuminates in red either permanently or intermittently, engine starting problems are likely to occur. An authorised Fiat dealership should be contacted immediately.

When the car is started, this symbol should illuminate in red and should go out after a few seconds. If the light remains on or comes on whilst driving, this signifies a fault in the airbag or pretensioner systems. Pretensioner or airbags may not be deployed in an accident. Contact Fiat authorised dealers immediately.

On the steering column just below the windshield wiper wand is a small push button sticking out. Is this a switch & what is it's purpose.

One of the biggest criticisms of the 100HP is the electrically assisted steering and the degree of assistance provided. Many believe there isn’t enough steering feel, even in Sport mode. Worse, the technology involved can also give rise to problems. Paul Brunskill explains: ‘The steering column is surrounded by the motor that provides the assistance, as well as the position sensor and the ECU for the system. Any of the three can fail.’

The quality and quantity of paint on the Panda leaves something to be desired, so stones that might ordinarily bounce off the bodywork can easily chip down to bare metal.

This car with a lock (Key Code Light) symbol will light up in amber with a message displayed on some Punto versions. This signifies a failure in the engine immobiliser system (Fiat Code System), or if installed on your Punto model, the system alarm will be disabled. An authorised Fiat dealership will need to be contacted to reset the anti-theft system.

This dashboard symbol will initially illuminate when the car ignition is turned to MAR and once the engine has started will extinguish. Unlike the red symbol above indicating an overheating engine, this symbol illuminates amber to indicate that there’s only 7 litres of fuel remaining in the tank. The light will flash to indicate system failure.

Steering wheel symbol will briefly illuminate in red when engine has started and shortly go out. If the warning lamp stays on or comes on during driving, ‘Dualdrive’ electronic power steering has malfunctioned. The vehicle is still safe to dive though you will not have assisted steering. Steering may be harder whilst driving slowly. Contact a Fiat dealership soon.

The anti-lock brakes, or ABS symbol will illuminate in amber when the ignition is turned on, and shortly after turn off. If the symbol remains on or illuminates whilst driving, this signifies a failure with ABS. Normal brakes will be unaffected during normal driving conditions. Drive carefully to an authorised Fiat dealership to have the issue rectified. See the Anti-Lock Braking System guide for understanding what ABS is and how it works.

Dear Jeremy, I am having exactly the same problem. Have been back to two dealers who say "No Fault Found". The ECU does not (OR) looses the error!, from the memory. Now understand that the Oil level is very important. Is you car the TwinAir or MultiJet. You do not say. I understand that this problem is not isolated but Fiat says it is new to them. Did you get your car from Western-Super-Mare.?. Keith Bradley from Hampshire

Wright says that leaking dampers can be a problem, too. ‘There is a weld in the damper that tends to rust and fail, causing the seals to leak. This could be an MOT failure, as well as affecting the ride quality.’

The 1368cc ‘FIRE’ unit is reasonably robust but, according to Paul Wright, the coolant needs looking after. ‘The anti-freeze concentration and coolant levels must be kept up to date, otherwise the engine has a habit of head gasket failure.’

The rev counter warning light on my Panda comes on every now and then and stays on for sometime. After a while it will go off and then come back on again. Can anyone help please. Thank you.

Clutch wear should be monitored so that your clutch is able to stay well maintained and you can keep abreast of when you might need to hire a talented vehicle mechanic in Canterbury to replace the Qubo clutch of your vehicle.

Because working brake pads are such an important part of a vehicle functioning properly, it is important that you are getting exactly what you are ordering through eBay. To ensure this, eBay provides a forum for buyers to leave feedback about individual sellers. By reviewing buyer feedback, you can ensure you are purchasing new brake pads from reliable and fair sellers. This is just one way eBay strives to make the brake pad buying process easy and worry-free.

There are no known major issues with the transmission, although the Panda, like much of the Fiat range, does tend to go through clutches more quickly than cars from other manufacturers.

When you do have a problem with your clutch you can call upon Fiat to locate skilled vehicle mechanics in Canterbury.

I left the house, got to the end of the street and lost all throttle seems to me like a broken cable but I think the panda is fly by wire not sure though. Any suggestions would be a great help.

Many owners report wheel alignment problems with the Panda, and according to Paul Wright it isn’t the only Fiat with this issue. ‘The tolerances for the tracking tend to be quite loose compared with some other brands,’ he says. Front tyres can wear unevenly even when the tracking is within the stated tolerances, so a check and a re-set to take it close to the centre of the allowed range tends to be the usual cure.

If a driver finds that any of the above seven signs apply to them, then it is time to replace their current brake pads with newer, and thus safer brake pads. There are several different manufacturers who produce brake pads for a range of different vehicle makes and models. The following chart compares several manufacturers by examining the manufacturer's notable features and affordability.

when headlights are switched on after a short while they flick off and then won't come back on again until the indicators are flicked. The lights then go off again and flick on and off. Can be very frightening whend riving in the dark in the north of Scotland where not many street lights exist! Anyone with an idea of the problem?
