    No idea how many this affects but we just got a re-call on ours, I guess most will be still in first owners ownership so should get the notification
    Ours came in French and as near as I can translate it has to go in for replacement of a potentially faulty starter switch

    if you go to the FIAT proffesional web site and type in your chassis number you should pop up any outstanding mods / recals to your chassis.

    Just taken our 2015 x290 in to local fiat workshop for a diagnostics check for the dashboard bleed problem and they have advised me of a new recall for potentially faulty ignition/starter switches. The dealer was unable to confirm or deny that this is related to the problem documented in the previous link to the Australian problem which sounds quite dangerous.

    Thanks for sharing I am impacted and think I will also ask about the dashboard lighting issue. This forum is just brilliant we are planning to go away in 10 weeks so a great piece of information.

    Dealer has just inspected our ignition switch and confirmed that ours is affected by the recall. They have also now, miraculously, been able to provide some documentation.
    Chassis numbers affected are 2729501 to 2904391.
    Fiat seem to be down playing the impact compared to the Australian announcement but it does appear to be the same issue.

    Parts have been ordered and should arrive next week along with the replacement dashboard.

    Copies of Fiat documentation provided below

    I've given you a 'like', @Broadsman although you are the bringer of bad news. Thanks for the information. Our vehicle is also affected :sick:.
    We're supposed to be going away at the end of this month, so need to get it sorted asap!

    Just spoke to my local Fiat professional dealer and they confirm a recall on my chassis number. Only had it 4 months!

    Is there any mention of the Peugeot Boxers or Citroen Relays? I have a 2015 Boxer but I have not had any recall notification.

    Not heard of anything and a quick Google doesn't bring anything up but probably well worth a phone call to your local dealer.

    Just been to the Fiat dealers in St Junien with ours and without an appointment he said he could do it right away and it took three quarters of an hour maximum.

    Finally got round to putting the details of our vehicle into the Fiat Camper App and it also needs a recall.
    Rang the nearest Fiat Professional dealer who booked me in for tomorrow, then rang me back to say the parts are on 'back order' but should be in at the start of next week. He will ring me tomorrow to re-book the appointment when he has a firm date.

    Richard.
