Fiat 500 Airbag ECU Repair

fiat 500 airbag module, fiat 500 airbag ecu repair

The Fiat 500 airbag module is one of the most important safety features built into the vehicle, a malfunctioning module can compromise your safety and the safety of your passengers. The Fiat 500 airbag module is responsible for detecting impacts and deploying the airbags in the event of an accident. However, if the module is faulty, it may not deploy the airbags when needed or may deploy them unexpectedly.

Thankfully, when the module does fail, we get warning signs such as the airbag/SRS warning light becoming constantly illuminated along with messages on the dash cluster reading “Start Stop Unavailable”, “Fuel cut-off Unavailable” and it will even cause the mileage to flash.

If you have had your vehicle scanned with diagnostics then you will be familiar with the U1726 Fiat 500 fault code, this code will be present due to the airbag ECU failing to establish communications with the rest of the safety system inside the vehicle.

Purchasing new from the manufacturer may seem like a great idea, but it’s not the best resolution as it can be quite costly, will require coding to the vehicle (added expense) and only comes with a short one-year warranty, not great for a piece of safety equipment.

Our test and rebuild solution comes with an unlimited mile Lifetime Warranty, can be completed within 2-3 working days, and requires no coding once you receive it back. Let us look after you with our Fiat 500 airbag ecu repair.



Common Failure symptoms:

  • No communication with airbag ECU
  • SRS/airbag warning light on
  • Flashing mileage
  • Start Stop unavailable message
  • Fuel cut-off unavailable message


Common fault codes:

Although no diagnostic connection to the module will be possible, other electronic units will report:


  • U1726 – No Communication With Airbag Ecu


Location and Removal:

The Fiat 500 airbag module location is underneath the centre console. Access from the passenger side, remove the three 10mm screws and gently pull out the module, undo the ratchet levers on the two multiplugs to free your airbag ECU.




Test and rebuild:

Our team of skilled technicians thoroughly evaluates and inspects each Fiat 500 airbag ECU before proceeding with the repair process. No fault goes unnoticed, and any defective, damaged, or commonly failing components are replaced with those of higher quality than standard.



No additional programming is required for the airbag ECU after the rebuild process, simply plug and play.



Our commitment to quality control is second-to-none, from testing and workmanship to components and ESD safety. Because of this, our defect rate is less than 0.49%,  and our high standards have made us the first choice for major dealerships and specialists across the world.
