function on rainy/cold days as it would
considerably increase the possibility of the

LOOKING AFTER THE SYSTEM

Run the climate control system for at least
10 minutes every month during the win-
ter. Have the system inspected at a Fiat
Dealership before the summer.

The system uses R134a re-
frigerant fluid which does not
harm the environment in the
event of accidental leakage.

Never use R12 fluid, which is not com-
patible with the system components.

IMPORTANT The air internal recircula-
tion system makes it possible to reach the
required heating or cooling conditions
faster.

Do not use the air internal recirculation
function on rainy/cold days as it would
considerably increase the possibility of the
windows misting up.

INTERNAL AIR INTERNAL
RECIRCULATION ACTIVATION

Press 

so that the button LED is on.

It is advisable to switch the internal air in-
ternal recirculation on while standing in
queues or in tunnels to prevent the in-
troduction of polluted air. Do not use the
function for a long time, particularly if
there are many passengers on board, to
prevent the windows from misting up.

DIRECTION INDICATORS fig. 40

Put the stalk in the permanent position:
❒ Up (position 1): right-hand direction in-

dicator;

❒ Down (position 2): left-hand direction

indicator.

The 

¥

or 

Î

lights will blink on the in-

strument panel.

Indicators are switched off automatically
when the steering wheel is straightened.

If you want the indicator to flash briefly to
show that you are about to change lane,
move the stalk up or down without it
clicking into position. When released, the
stalk will return to its default position.

Lane change function

If you wish to signal a lane change, put the
left stalk in the temporary position for less
than half a second. The direction indicator
on the side selected will be activated for
5 flashes and then go out automatically.

“FOLLOW ME HOME” DEVICE

This will light up the space in front of the
vehicle for a certain period of time.

Activation

With the key turned to STOP or re-
moved, pull the left-hand stalk towards the
steering wheel within 2 minutes from
when the engine is turned off.

Each time the stalk is moved, the lights
stay on for an extra 30 seconds up to
a maximum of 210 seconds; then the lights
are switched off automatically.

When the stalk is moved, the light 

3

on

the instrument panel will light up and the
corresponding message will appear in the
display (see “Warning lights and mes-
sages”) as long as the function is on. The
light comes on when the stalk is first
moved and stays on until the function is
automatically deactivated. Each movement
of the stalk increases only the amount of
time the lights stay on.

Deactivation

Keep the stalk pulled towards the steer-
ing wheel for more than 2 seconds.

WINDOW WASHING 

The right stalk fig. 41 controls windscreen
wiper/washer and rear window wiper/
washer operation.

WINDSCREEN WASHER/WIPER

This can work only when the key is turned
to MAR.

The twist switch on the right stalk can be
moved to four different positions:

O

windscreen wiper off;

≤ intermittent operation;
≥ continuous slow operation;
¥ continuous fast operation.
Move the stalk to position (temporary)
to limit operation to the time for which
the stalk is held in this position. When re-
leased, the stalk returns to its default po-
sition, automatically stopping the wiper.

Do not use the windscreen
wiper to remove layers of
snow or ice from the wind-
screen. In such conditions, the

windscreen wipers may be subjected to
excessive stress, prompting interven-
tion from the motor protection which
prevents operation for a few seconds.
If operation is not restored, even after
turning the key and restarting the en-
gine, go to a Fiat Dealership.

With the twist switch in position 

≤, the

windscreen wiper will automatically adapt
to the speed of the car.

IMPORTANT Replace the wiper blades as
specified in the “Car maintenance” sec-
tion. 

fig. 41

F0M0062m

“Smart washing” function

Pull the stalk towards the steering wheel
(temporary position) to operate the wind-
screen washer.

Keeping the stalk pulled for more than half
a second, with just one movement it is
possible to operate the washer jet and the
wiper at the same time.

The wiper stops working three strokes af-
ter releasing the stalk. 

A further stroke 6 seconds later com-
pletes the wiping operation.

REAR WINDOW WASHER/WIPER
fig. 42

This can work only when the key is turned
to MAR.

The function stops when the stalk is re-
leased.

Turning the twist switch from to 

'

will

operate the rear window wiper as follows:
❒ intermittent operation if the wind-

screen wiper is off;

❒ synchronised operation (but with half-

stroke frequency) when the windscreen
wiper is on;

❒ continuous operation with reverse en-

gaged and function on.

Do not use the rear window
wiper to remove layers of
snow or ice. In such condi-
tions, the rear window wiper

may be subjected to excessive stress,
prompting intervention from the mo-
tor protection which prevents opera-
tion for a few seconds. If operation is
not restored, even after turning the key
and restarting the engine, go to a Fiat
Dealership.

The rear window wiper will run in con-
tinuous mode when the windscreen wiper
is on and reverse gear is engaged.

Pushing the stalk towards the dashboard
(temporary position) will activate the rear
window washer jet.

Keeping the stalk pushed for more than
half a second will also activate the rear
window wiper.

Smart wash function is activated when the
stalk is released, like for the windscreen
wiper.

Courtesy light timing 

On certain versions, to facilitate getting
in/out of the car at night or in poorly-lit ar-
eas, two timed modes have been provided.

TIMING WHEN GETTING INTO THE CAR

The courtesy lights switch on as follows:
❒ for about 10 seconds when unlocking

the front doors;

❒ for about 3 minutes when opening one

of the side doors;

❒ for about 10 seconds when closing the

doors.

The timed period is interrupted when the
ignition is turned to MAR.

TIMING WHEN GETTING OUT OF THE CAR

After removing the key from the ignition,
the courtesy lights switch on as follows:
❒ within 2 minutes from turning the en-

gine off for about 10 seconds;

❒ when opening one of the side doors for

about 3 minutes;

❒ when one of the doors is closed for

a period of about 10 seconds.

The timed period stops automatically
when the doors are locked.

CAUTION Before getting out of the car,
make sure both switches are in the cen-
tral position; when the doors are closed,
the lights switch off to prevent the battery
from running down.

In any case, if the switch is left in the ‘per-
manently on’ position, the courtesy light
goes off automatically 15 minutes after the
engine switching off.
