Ours has done the same,, 1 day into 2 week trip. Taken on low loader (just) then to garage today in Bordeaux. They won’t get round to even looking at it for 15 days…. They have lots more MH in front of us, tourist season !
The mechanics have three suggestions;
Fiat key code failure
Toad immobiliser failure
Or oil pump failure as well. No fuel is being delivered, their “best guess” without looking and diagnosing is Fiat key code failure hence why yellow “locked” light is on permanently.
It will not be cheap, I am sure, as it is a main Fiat camping car dealer…….
But moving 3.7t is not an easy exercise. The mechanic had to use the starter motor to power it where he could winch it on, thankfully the battery was easily up to the task and the solar panels will top it up (if the heavy rain stops 😢 ).
I will keep you informed so if you have that little yellow light on, even once, you get it checked. I had never seen it before, so was not forewarned but did ignore excellent advice on here to get it checked when it would not start for a few minutes last year…. That seemed to have resolved itself, or not…. 🙁😞😩
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
