I have a Fiat Panda from '83 (!), my problem is that it doesn't start
Turning key in position II, no control lamp is flashing, in position
III starter is running but apparently there are no ignition sparks.
The distributor was replaced 1/2 a year ago (so were the sparking
plugs) and the contacts for the cables at the distributor and the
plugs look ok. I am not sure where to look for the bug, looks
something is wrong with the electric equipment (broken cable ??) .
Also problem might be realted to high humidity.
To me it smells fishy that several electric things fail at the same
time (the control lamps, also for instance the cabin ventilation
doesn't work when key is in position II), however lights apparently do
and so does the starter...
PS any answers in english/german/spanish/italian appreciated.
