Hello

something of an odd tip but the Automatic box's work with the Rear Brake lights

So try giveing the rear light clusters pins a good clean with some abrasive paper and spray them with a contact cleaner - and spray the plug too

If that doesn't help then its a case of checking the gearbox oil level, performing a clutch point retrain ( fiat software required for this) , try cleaning the sensors and a cpu reset

HiThanks. I assumed the last things but wanted to confirm before visiting garage. Will also look into the brake lights - would never have assumed that!!!!
