Have you pressure-tested the cooling system? Has the engine been overheated? If there are no signs of external leaks, you may have an internal leak. You may have a cracked cylinder head or a blown head gasket. Check the engine oil on the dipstick- is it pure oil or does it have bubbles of moisture on it? Does it smell like coolant? The ticking may be a result of little lubrication of the engine oil due to the presence of coolant. It would also cause your power issue.

I suggest to check some electrical short, wires connections in good condition and ground wires.

Assuming the check engine light is not on, I would want to know what the engine temp sensor is doing.
A scanner would tell you what the temp sensor is showing - if it is unplugged or there is a problem with the wiring the fans will run as a default to prevent the engine from overheating. It could be a fan relay but I doubt it. A relay usually works or not.

Hi Mal, Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. The flashing light is indicating a fault in the system, which will be identified by the scan report. Regards John

Hi there:
Other than a bad connection / chaffed wire etc - which can happen - so be sure all is ok there - then the problem is going to be a faulty TPS ... throttle position sensor / switch..

This isn't unusual to happen / go wrong on these - No amount of re learn procedures will cure a faulty one Im afraid - so its a new one that is needed to cure these issues that you have with this one.

The TPS ( sensor ) is at the pedal on this one.... and its this that Im referring too. This can be checked using diagnostic equipment - using live data - it can be checked to see f its working and when its not etc.

Not all garages would be able to do this depending on what equipment they have and their level of knowledge - but I would suggest it would be a good idea to have it checked out as above to confirm the fault ..

You have the TCU - Throttle control unit - but thats inside and a part of the TPM - Throttle position motor ...on the engine.

Your fault codes though would indicate the TPS - at the pedal.


There is also a common fault on these that causes throttle / power loss... Im not so sure this fits the symptoms you describe but it might be worth a consideration... For this - a reprogram / software update has to be performed by either a Fiat dealer - or some garage that has the equipment to do that ....It might be worth you having a word with the local Fiat dealers to have that side of things done in any case - again - as its a common fault.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Is the check engine light on ?
Could be a long list of things including a faulty thermostat, O2 sensor, dirty air filter, and so on.
