    I've got the ABS light coming on (not full brightness) it's very dim ( can't see it in daylight) only when it's dark,
    When parked & turn on ignition then turn off again the window buttons light along with dim ABS these both go off after 3 mins
    When driving dim ABS light on (again not as fault but dim)
    Anyone else got this prob or is it off to garage diagnostics computer ??

    Could be a simple earth fault from the relay which controls both.

    Nothing new about dim lights on Fiat dashboards they appear to build them that way

    Should the diagnosis be a new ABS unit, it should be possible to get it repaired, which will still be expensive but a lot less than a new ABS unit. Hopefully the problem will be something more minor but ABS units do fail.
