Just wanted to document what happened to my car on this forum. Other details are in the 500L general forum.

Car stopped working when I brought it home from the studio with on 34miles. Car will start but there's no throttle and errors. Engine will turn off after few seconds. Towed to the studio and they cleared the codes and they said its ok. They drove if for about 20miles. Brought it home and had 55 miles on it. Drove about 19 miles going back and forth from home to my daughter's school then when I picked up my kid it died again. Same problems. So after 74 miles, studio said it was a defective throttle body.

No parts for my car yet until next week, so the waiting game continues.

If you have a smart phone I recommend downloading the manuals as PDF to kindle, it's awesome. The book does show if flashing it may need towed. Good luck!

you mentioned that your car is 6 spd. Can you clarify if it's a manual or automatic transmission?

Any update on your car? I must admit, I fell in love with mine all over again as soon as I got back in it after driving the sport for over a week.

Ellie, dealer called and they said they got the part this morning. Still waiting for a call back if I can pick it up tonight but they said most likely. Fiatusa also called regarding my concert about it and they are elevating the case.
