I have a 2015 Fiat Turbo (automatic) with the same issue. 66,888 miles. It happened 6/30/18, the red gearbox, hill start, service engine lights came on. Car ran horrible. Didn’t use car over the weekend. Tow driver started car and no lights came on. Dealer has had car since July 2nd. Transmission tech has looked at car, engine tech has to look at car. No diagnosis as of yet. Will keep you updated.

Update: No issues with the transmission. All 4 spark plugs are fouled out. I had them replaced at 35,000 miles so they are going to replace them and see how that goes. Car still at the dealer. Will update again.
