STARTING THE ENGINE

EMERGENCY START-UP

If the instrument panel warning light 

Y

stays on permanently, contact a Fiat
Dealership immediately.

JUMP STARTING fig. 1

If the battery is flat, the engine may be
started using an auxiliary battery with an
equal or slightly higher capacity than the
flat one. 

Proceed as follows to start the car:
❒ connect the positive terminals (near

the terminal) of the two batteries with
a jump lead;

❒ with a second lead, connect the nega-

tive terminal () of the auxiliary battery
to an earthing point 

E on the engine or

the gearbox of the car to be started;

❒ start the engine.
❒ when the engine has been started, fol-

low the sequence above in reverse or-
der to remove the leads.

If after a few attempts the engine does not
start, do not keep trying but contact a Fiat
Dealership.

IMPORTANT Do not directly connect the
negative terminals of the two batteries:
sparks could ignite explosive gas released
from the battery. If the auxiliary battery is
installed on another car, prevent acciden-
tal contact between metallic parts of the
two cars.

IMPORTANT For cars with Start&Stop
system, in case of starting by booster bat-
tery, refer to "Dashboard and controls"
chapter, paragraph "Start&Stop system".

BUMP STARTING

Never bump start the engine by pushing,
towing or driving downhill. This could
cause fuel to flow into the catalytic con-
verter and damage it beyond repair.

IMPORTANT Remember that the brake
booster and the power steering system
are not active until the engine is started,
so you will need to apply much more force
to the brake pedal or steering wheel.

This procedure must be per-
formed by expert personnel

because incorrect actions may cause
considerable electrical discharge. Fur-
thermore, battery fluid is poisonous
and corrosive: avoid contact with skin
and eyes. Keep naked flames and lit
cigarettes away from the battery. Do
not create sparks.

CHANGING A TYRE 

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

Wheel changing and correct use of the
jack and spare wheel call for some pre-
cautions, as listed below.

Use your hazard lights,
warning triangle, etc to show

that your car is stationary. Passengers
should get out of the car, particular-
ly if it is heavily loaded, and wait for
the wheel to be changed away from
the traffic. Apply the handbrake.

WARNING

The spare wheel provided is
specific for your vehicle.

Therefore, it must not be used on dif-
ferent models and you should not use
spare wheels from other models on
your vehicle. The wheel bolts are spe-
cific for your vehicle: do not use them
on different models and do not use
bolts from other models on your car.

WARNING

Repair and refit the standard
wheel as soon as possible.

Do not apply grease to the bolt
threads before assembly: they might
spontaneously unscrew.

WARNING

The jack may be used to re-
place wheels only on the car

which it equips or other cars of the
same model. Never use the jack for
other purposes, such as lifting other
models. Never use the jack to carry
out repairs under the car. Incorrect
positioning of the jack may cause the
car to fall. Do not use the jack for
loads higher than the one shown on
its label. 

WARNING

Incorrect hub cap assembly
may cause it to come off

when the car is moving. Never tam-
per with the inflation valve. Never in-
troduce tools of any kind between the
rim and the tyre. Check tyre and
spare wheel pressure regularly, refer-
ring to the values shown in the “Tech-
nical specifications” section.

❒ make sure that switch D-fig. 10 of the

compressor is in position 0 (off), start
the engine, plug into the nearest sock-
et E-fig. 11 and activate the compres-
sor by turning switch D-fig. 10 to po-
sition  (on). Inflate the tyre to the
pressure specified in the “Inflation
pressure” paragraph in the “Technical
specifications” section. 

For a more accurate reading, check

pressor off; 

❒ if after 5 minutes you cannot reach at

least 1.5 bar, unplug the compressor
from the valve and the socket, then
move the car forward about ten metres
in order to distribute the sealant inside
the tyre evenly, then repeat the infla-
tion operation;

❒ if after this operation you still cannot

reach at least 1.8 bar after 5 minutes,
do not resume driving because the tyre
is too damaged and the fast tyre repair
kit cannot guarantee suitable sealing.
Contact a Fiat Dealership;

❒ if you do reach the tyre pressure spec-

ified in the “Inflation pressure” para-
graph in the “Technical specifications”

CHANGING A BULB 

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
❒ When a light is not working, check that

the corresponding fuse is intact before
changing the bulb. For the location of
fuses, refer to the “Changing a fuse”
paragraph in this section;

❒ before changing a bulb check the con-

tacts for rusting;

❒ burnt bulbs must be replaced by others

of the same type and wattage;

❒ for safety reasons, always check the di-

rection of the headlight beam after
changing a bulb.

IMPORTANT The internal surface of the
light may appear slightly misty: this does
not indicate a fault, and is actually caused
by low temperature and the degree of hu-
midity in the air. Misting will rapidly dis-
appear when the headlights are switched
on. The presence of drops inside the head-
lights indicates infiltration of water. Go to
a Fiat Dealership.

TYPES OF BULBS

Various types of bulbs are fitted to your
car:

A

Glass bulbs: clipped into position. Pull
to remove.

B

Bayonet-type bulbs: to remove from
its holder, press the bulb in and turn
it anti-clockwise.

C

Tubular bulbs: release them from
their contacts to remove.

D-E Halogen bulbs: to remove the bulb,

release the clip holding the bulb in
place.

Halogen bulbs must be han-
dled holding the metallic part
only. Touching the transpar-
ent part of the bulb with your

fingers may reduce the intensity of the
light emitted and even compromise the
longevity of the bulb itself. In the event
of accidental contact, wipe the bulb
with an alcohol-soaked cloth and leave
to dry.

Modifications or repairs to
the electrical system (ECUs)

that are not carried out properly or
do not take the system’s technical
specifications into account can cause
malfunctions leading to the risk of fire.

WARNING

Halogen bulbs contain pres-
surised gas which may cause

small fragments of glass to be pro-
jected outwards if the bulb is broken.
