Apparently these cars are sensitive to slow dying batteries and that was the cars way of letting me know.
    I have 67,000 mile on my Elle and recently did the Coil Pack upgrade (Alfa 4C). This has improved overall drivability and mileage.
    Thanks, DeSoulo. I wasn't aware of the Alfa 4C Coil Pack upgrade, though now that I think about it, I've been reading up on the 124 Spider, with the idea of picking one up eventually, and do recall that as an upgrade mentioned by several posters. Sounds intriguing.

    I admin a Fiat 500L USA Owners Group on FB. Many of the 2014s in particular have mention unusual behavior of the DCCT or other odd issues. I do always do some slow charges of batt few times a year. Even though mine always starts well, I have seen the at idle voltage is only around 12.2 VDC or so. This is low. One member changed battery n no longer got wierd issues and behaviour with trans. I'm trying to stay with my batt till I can get exact size to reuse the OEM insulation on it. Lol.

    I've found that the early 500Ls tend to have lower voltage at idle or sitting over night. Also alot of validity in what you said in your post.

    If anyone has a 2014-2015 Fiat 500L with a battery that keeps going dead, you should look into this software update that may fix the drain that draws the battery down.

    People get easily confused by electrical systems. I am by no means an electrical engineer and often confused myself getting deep into electrical systems. people often get to thinking about voltage only on a car. As halfpint said, if a battery can turn the starter at speed, it has more tham enough to run ignition system. Think about pop starting an old manual. The ignition must work essentially immediately on what was a dead system for the whole concept to work. The pop starting is needed to spin the engine, not fire coils and pump fuel.

    Your starter needs current(amps) to run. Usually over 200. This is how automotive battery are typically rated. A diesel battery to start a 6.0 liter diesel v8 operates at same voltages as a battery to start a 1.4 liter. But the 1.4l battery probably cannot start the 6.0 diesel due to cca rating. A cranking engine may see a voltage drop ,but amperage will increase. Once it is running, voltage requirements are the similar, but much less current. Your ignition is actually operating at a much higher voltage, thanks to the coil, but it only need 12v going in.
