Boost Gauge Not Working
« on: February 13, 2014, 06:46:59 pm »
Just Been Driving The Abarth And Noticed the Boost Gauge Isn't Working, It lights Up With Shift Up But the Needle Doesn't Move. How Can I Sort This?  :( ???

    Does the car still pull as it used to?Just to make sure  your turbo is still ok.If so then i think its a call to the dealership as it can be anything even a lose connection maby or a sensor.
    Now with added monza fun :P

    I don't think it is to be honest, not like it usually does. I went back out in it last night and it was fine working... But jumped in this morning and wasn't working again  :( :'(

    I have this on and off.Seems to stop working now and then when its cold/damp weather. last year at service they said they had fixed it and that it was a loose connection. Which probally means they did nothing.

    I had this this morning, it was fine for about 10k's then after pushing the sport button the boost guage died. No change noticed in the performance just no boost guage. Shift light worked ok though. I pulled over and turned it of for about 30 seconds and all good. It may be the summer heat causing it, the last time I drove the car it was 39 deg C and this morning its high 20's and the guage and dash felt warm. Will see what happens.

    I've had this, no problem driving, just the needle didn't go round, was intermittent that got more often. It was replaced under warranty, apparently a known issue. Down side if you're out of warranty, was told the new pod cost more than £500 ex vat and they had my car 3 days to replace

    Don't want to sound daft but don't UK spec models just say "Sport" in them. Mine doesn't say shift up so is it a replacement gauge.

    To the best of my knowledge, the configuration changed a few years back. my car, for example has "shift up" displayed in the turbo pod and "sport" displayed at the top of the odometer/clock display panel.

    The inactive needle in the turbo pod (assuming the turbo itself is operating) is usually caused by ambient conditions and can be so intermittent that some owners have only had it happen once.
