I own a Fiat Panda 1.3 TDI multijet [05] The MIL light came

This answer was rated:

I own a Fiat Panda 1.3 TDI multijet [05]
The MIL light came on a week or so ago and stays on when driving. The engine starts, ticks over and runs fine. I have read the fault codes and it comes up with -
The only difference when driving is that the engine seems a lot more responsive when accelerating from low[ish] revs/ cold more waiting for the turbo to cut in, a light touch on the accelerator and she's off!! It almost feels like the turbo is 'on' all the time - even at low revs. The other thing that I have noticed is that the fuel consumption is a tad higher. I could just change the MAP sensor and see if that fixes it but I may be being misled here. Would value your opinion. Kind Regards, Neil
Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

The definition of the code is correct - and its this fault that is causing the problems you describe for sure..

The most likely cause of this is a failed MAP or Barometric pressure sensor - but just check for any intake / exhaust leaks anywhere on the engine - checking the small bore piping etc - as anything like that will cause these sensors to read incorrectly and therefore operate wrongly...

Also check the wiring / connections carefully too before you replace anything..and then go from there as you find..

I Sincerely hope I have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...

Kind Rgds, MIKE
