SYMBOLS

Special coloured labels have been attached
near or actually on some of the compo-
nents of your Fiat Punto. These labels bear
symbols that remind you of the precau-
tions to be taken as regards that particu-
lar component.

The plate summarising the symbols used
can be found under the bonnet fig. 2.

THE FIAT CODE SYSTEM

This is an electrical engine locking sys-
tem which increases protection against
an attempted theft of the car. It is auto-
matically activated when the ignition key
is extracted.

Each key contains an electronic device
which modulates the signal emitted dur-
ing ignition by an antenna built into the
ignition device. This signal is the ‘pass-
word’ which changes at each ignition and
which the control unit uses to recognise
the key and enable ignition.

In this case, turn the key to STOP and
then back to MAR; try with the other
keys provided if the problem persists.
Contact a Fiat Dealership if you still can-
not start the engine.

Warning light 

Y

coming on 

when driving
❒ If the warning light 

Y

turns on, this

means that the system is running a self-
test (for example for a voltage drop). 

❒ If the warning light 

Y

stays on, con-

tact a Fiat Dealership.

The electronic components
inside the key may be dam-
aged if the key is subjected to
sharp knocks.

OPERATION

Each time the vehicle is started turning the
ignition key to MAR, the Fiat CODE sys-
tem control unit sends a recognition code
to the engine control unit to deactivate
the inhibitor.

The code is sent only if the Fiat CODE
system control unit has recognised the
code transmitted from the key.

Each time the ignition key is turned to
STOP, the Fiat CODE system deactivates
the functions of the engine control unit.

If the code has not been recognised cor-
rectly, the warning light 

Y

turns on ac-

companied by the related message on the
display.

IGNITION 

The key can be turned to 3 different po-
sitions fig. 9:
❒ STOP: engine off, key can be extract-

ed, steering locked. Some electrical de-
vices (e.g. sound system, central door
locking system, etc.) can function.

❒ MAR: driving position. All electrical

devices can function.

❒ AVV: engine starting (temporary posi-

tion).

The ignition device is fitted with an elec-
tronic safety system that, in the event the
engine fails to start, turns back the ignition
key to STOP before repeating the start-
ing operation.

STEERING LOCK

Engagement

When the key is in position STOP, re-
move it and turn the steering wheel until
it locks.

Disengagement

Rock the steering wheel slightly as you
turn the key to MAR.

If the ignition device has
been tampered with (e.g. an

attempted theft), have it checked
over by a Fiat Dealership as soon as
possible.

WARNING

Always remove the key when
you leave your car to pre-

vent someone from accidentally op-
erating the controls. Remember to
engage the handbrake. Engage first
gear if the car is parked uphill or re-
verse if the car is parked downhill.
Never leave children unattended in
the car. 

WARNING

fig. 9

F0M0015m

Never extract the key while
the vehicle is moving. The

steering wheel would lock automati-
cally as soon as it is turned. This also
applies to when the car is towed.

WARNING

It is absolutely forbidden to
carry out any after-market

operation involving steering system or
steering column modifications (e.g. in-
stallation of anti-theft device) that
could badly affect performance and
safety, invalidate the warranty and
also result in the car not complying
with regulations.

SPEEDOMETER fig. 12

REV COUNTER fig. 13

The rev counter shows the number of en-
gine revolutions per minute.

IMPORTANT The electronic injection
control system gradually shuts off the flow
of fuel when the engine is over-revving, re-
sulting in a gradual loss of engine power.

When the engine is idling, the rev counter
may indicate a gradual or sudden increase
of the rate.

This is normal and does not indicate a fault.
It may be caused, for example, by the op-
eration of the climate control system or
fan. In these cases, a slow change in revs
is used to protect the battery charge.

ENGINE COOLANT
TEMPERATURE GAUGE fig. 15

This shows the temperature of the engine
coolant fluid and starts working when the
fluid temperature exceeds approx. 50 °C.

Under normal usage, the needle should

cording to the working conditions.

Low engine coolant temperature.

High engine coolant temperature.

Warning light may light up (and a mes-
sage on the multifunctional display may ap-
pear in certain versions) to indicate that
the coolant fluid temperature is too high;
in this case, stop the engine and contact
a Fiat Dealership.

If the needle reaches the red
area, stop the engine imme-
diately and contact a Fiat
Dealership.
