Cali T - first issue

Had a weird one years ago with an Apple Laserwriter laser printer when I was a little Apple Engineer (computer not fruit btw).

It had 4 Led's and gave fault codes indicating a fault depending on pattern/order of lit Led's displayed. This time it showed all 4 flashing one after the other. Diagnostic key said that was random error of no known fault code..... helpful! Basically there is a fault but I have no idea what or where it is. Your on your own

Over several months most of our engineers had spent time looking at it and couldn't find the fault nor fix it. As a silly keen young lad I went in one weekend on my own time just to fix the bl00dy thing. After stripping the whole thing down to lots of bits I noticed a small interface cable had a connector very slightly loose and not home fully. Pushed it home to a nice click and bobs your uncle....all fixed. POST'd fine after that and worked a treat with no issues.

Likely completely irrelevant and this was reasonably basic tech maybe 25 years ago. Just goes to highlight though that issues can sometimes not be picked up as expected or documented faults and leave many scratching their heads. On a modern high tech sports car the potential for varying issues is pretty immense I should imagine.

I think I'm just in a mood because I'd only had it 18 days!

What did you they give you as a courtesy car. If you say things including key words such as ‘very disapponted in my first ferrari’, ‘forums’, ‘regretting buying a ferrari’ and demand a Ferrari as a courtesy car they may give you a better one. When ferrari assist suggested they could only give up to a C class I told them to go and F*** themself. The main dealers gave me a brand new Cali T. When I wasn’t quite as aggressive I had an F type or S Class. They both went in a couple of times- and I must admit I did enjoy the comfort and tech of the S class! Really made me realise the gulf between the F type and Ferrari Though.

Disappointing but let’s hope you get it back pronto and enjoy the experience to the full.

Once left the Maser in to have an issue corrected and didn't get a courtesy car! Told that I needed to book it, I said unfortunately my Maserati didn't give me warning on when it's part/s would start breaking.

So had a reply. It's the same carbon canister issue that has previously been replaced so hence Ferrari have given detailed instructions of other things to do to prevent a recurrence. Quite reassured by that
