    Just started the van uo and noticed that the scheduled service spanner has come on and the generic failure indication (the triangle) - both glowing a faint amber.
    Anyone know if these two lights are linked? the service spanner isn't an issue as the van had a full service recently, it is the other light coming on that is causing concern.

    the answer is to plug in a code reader, check for listed faults and reset them. if the lights come back on get the van to a workshop for investigation/repair

    code readers available on eBay under £20

    From the Handbook

    GENERIC FAILURE
    INDICATION
    (amber)
    The warning light turns on in the following
    circumstances.
    Engine oil pressure
    sensor failure
    The warning light comes on when the engine
    oil pressure sensor is faulty. Contact
    Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
    Inertial fuel cut-off switch
    intervened
    The warning light comes on when the inertial
    fuel cut-off switch is triggered.
    The display will show the dedicated message.
    Rain sensor failure
    (versions with multifunction
    display)
    The warning light on the dial turns on
    when the rain sensor is faulty. Contact Fiat
    Dealership.
    The display will show the dedicated message.
    Parking sensor failure
    (versions with multifunction
    display)
    See what described for warning light t.

    Hope that helps.

    On Friday I rang the local Fiat Dealer, all they could do was 'take a look' in January....could give no advice on the phone.

    I rang the Motorhome Depot in Redditch http://www.themotorhomedepot.com/ and they immediately offered to look at it today.

    Went in this morning, left it with them for 2 hours and they advised it may be the dashboard. No coded faults being reported on their box of tricks and the checks on the van showed nothing. The 2 lights had now gone out, but they advised they'd done nothing to cause this to happen. Apparently dashboard problems are not unknown!
    Anyway, drove away, no warning lights on and so far, all ok.
    The charge - nothing, all part of the service.

    whatever brought the lights on, they shouldnt be glowing dimly....they should both be brightly lit.

    looks to me like an electrical fault on the dash cluster/wiring loom.
