Dear customer, as far as I can see you are experiencing an emergency mode due to the generation of an error code in the brake system.

Basically you have a fault in the brake system that the computer is detecting as dangerous, this causes the vehicle to inhibit the ignition so that you do not drive the vehicle in these circumstances so the reset does not allow you to eliminate the problem.

You should check what is happening in the ABS braking system, you can try to do this visually but ideally through diagnostic equipment with Fiat software to find out the exact error code that is causing the emergency mode and see if it can be reset.
