Fiat 500e Remote Service in the United States

Fiat 500e Remote Service in the United States, begins with one of the biggest messes I have ever encountered. Jon sent me a n e-mail with dashboard photos of almost all possible errors appearing simultaneously on his 2013 500e. His main concern however, was repair for “Not Ready,” perhaps the most dreaded error of all. John admitted that he had already searched all sites and forums of 500e owners. He had tried a great many ‘fixes’ with no results for any of the errors.

Initial problem list, posted by John was:

  • “Not Ready” immobile vehicle- with flashing odometer
  • “Blue and Me,” steering wheel buttons, and USB not working
  • AlfaOBD Body Computer error B2204
  • AlfaOBD errors TMPS U0019 and C1001-4
  • There is a postal letter envelope icon above odometer -origin unknown.
  • Level 1 EVSE not charge, with two outside dashboard lights flashing .

Jon had OBDLink MX+ code reader and registered copy Android AlfaOBD, so I immediately asked him to send me the HV Battery Log.

Most troubling now was the number of errors in CAN communications, in addition to low 12V battery charge, ABS/RBC failure, and ECU configuration mismatch.

Full diagnostics of the Fiat 500e using WiTech

With no possibility to generate logs from several ECUs, I decided to put AlfaOBD on the shelf, and switch to the native 500e diagnostic tool: WiTech. It enables immediate connections to all modules in both CAN networks, giving a better and more reliable overview.

And so it was in this case. Upon WiTech connection, the diagnosis appeared immediately. I was then certain that the Fiat 500e Remote Service in the United States would be a complete success.
