    How old is it?
    On our 2015 Bolero we had the same problem. It was the ignition switch which was replaced under warranty.

    Hi John
    It's a 2013 model , don't know if it's any help had a wee wheel spin in the mud coming out of the last site we were on warning lights came on then but we stopped on way home for a coffee break and when started up again all were clear , now after it's been sitting for a week on start up they have came back on but van runs okay , was thinking there's maybe dirt on a sensor ?

    Yes it sounds like it might be related to the wheel spin incident.
    Someone more technical than me will be along shortly to advise (y)

    The plot thickens with Shuggie started him up this afternoon supposedly to go to Biggar caravan site for the weekend, on start up still have the EDB , ABS, engine management light and handbrake warning light staying on , had a wee drive with it and the temperature display isn't working neither is speedometer but rev counter is , so decide to cancel weekend need to get him booked in to see what's up , so looking forward to a chilling weekend ah well few beers in the house then , hope you guys are having a good weekend

    Well that's Shuggie booked into Brownhills to get the warning light issues investigated and hopefully sorted , not so happy with there service desk though I have the gold 3 year warranty and first thing they say is , well we will have to see if it's a warranty issue, I can assure you it will be only had it 8 months , pity I need to travel 5 hrs away but can't help it , they haven't said if I've to wait or just leave it , think I can hear an angry Scotsman

    It is very likely due to the well known fault on the instrument cluster, often replaced under warranty

    Good luck

    It might be worth having a chat with the Fiat dealer in Galloway Avenue.
    Worth a punt, to nip in and speak to the service manager, see if he is familliar with the fault?
    Failing that,if you have breakdown cover, have them have a look at it.
    Might save you a ten hour round trip.

    Hi Bobby
    Thanks for the advice , didn't think the fiat dealer in Ayr would look at it as they are more car related , but will give him a ph in the morning see if he's got any ideas , it as you say would save me the long trip , nothing to lose asking thanks again .

    Hi Spanner
    Thanks for that , didn't know there was an issue with the dash unit , Sod's law I have an older van for 7 years no sensors or modern technologie , ran great swop for a more modern van and problems too much electronics and sensors on them these days I think
    Cheers

    The AC fiat dealer in Paisley serviced my last ducato at their garage. They should be able to plug it in and fault find, if it is a recall job they will love it.

    Update on warning light issues , engineer at Brownhills have found
    The EBS control unit is u/s but because it's a costly part an assessor from fiat need to check it out, Elle on service desk has been amazing organising the assessor to attend the same day to check it out , part is authorised and hopefully will be sent o/night to be fitted Friday, and head back up the road , drive down was an experience because engine management light was on did not have full engine power , but got here eventually , staff at Brownhills have been very good indeed , hope the part arrives ok

    Hope everything gets fixed OK for you.
    For future reference I've found Imperial Commercials (off Shieldhall Road in Glasgow) good for Fiat base vehicle repairs. They've done the instrument dash cluster (as referred to above) twice under warranty.

    The plot thickens with Shuggie they have fitted the ABS control unit but still getting an error code coming up so they are going to fit a hub unit and if that doesn't cure it a new sensor , but don't have any in stock and will be Tuesday before they can acquire one , so if it is the sensor service girl is going to see a senior manager if they can take one off another motorhome , 3 day we have been here , keep saying they work on motorhome first thing in the morning , but nearly 10 am and it's still in the overnight parking lot , will we ever get back home ?????? ☹️☹️

    If its the dash panel call fiat before you take it to brownhills I did and got fiat to ring brownhills to sort the problem

    Gold three year warranty have to say I have had three vans from Brownhills and so fare apart from complaing about the service desk staff only one I have had no issues
