WARNING LIGHTS AND MESSAGES
GENERAL WARNINGS
WARNING Warning lights may be accompanied by a specific message and/or sound when implemented on the instrument
panel. These indications are indicative and precautionary and as such must not be considered as exhaustive and/or alternative
to the information contained in the Owner Handbook, which you are advised to read carefully in all cases. Always refer to the
information in this section in the event of a failure indication.
WARNING The failure indicators appearing on the display are divided into two categories: very serious and less serious failures.
Serious faults are indicated by a repeated and prolonged warning "cycle". Less serious faults are indicated by a warning "cycle"
with a shorter duration. The instrument panel warning light will stay on until the cause of the malfunction is eliminated.
86
WARNING LIGHTS ON INSTRUMENT PANEL
Red warning lights
Warning light
What it means
SEAT BELTS REMINDER
The warning light switches on constantly with the car stationary and the driver's side or passenger
side seat belt (when the passenger is present) not fastened.
The warning light will flash and a buzzer will sound if the car is in motion and the front seat belts are
not correctly fastened.
For permanent deactivation of the acoustic signal (buzzer) of the SBR (Seat Belt Reminder) system
contact a Fiat Dealership. The system can be reactivated at any time using the Setup Menu.
AIRBAG FAILURE
The warning light switches on when the ignition device is brought to the ENGINE position, but it
should switch off after a few seconds.
The warning light stays on constantly if there is a fault in the airbag system.
45) 46)
ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE FAILURE / LOW BRAKE FLUID / ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE
APPLIED
The warning lights switch on when the ignition device is brought to the ENGINE position, but it
should switch off after a few seconds.
Electric parking brake failure
The warning light flashes in conjunction with the yellow symbol
when the electric parking brake
fails.
Contact a Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
Low brake fluid level
The warning light flashes together with the yellow symbol
when the level of the brake fluid in the
reservoir falls below the minimum level, possibly due to leaks in the circuit. .
47)
Electric parking brake on
The warning light switches on when the parking brake is engaged.
On certain versions, if the car is moving the acoustic warning will also sound.
WARNING If the warning light turns on while driving, check that the parking brake is not engaged.
87
Warning light
What it means
ELECTRIC POWER STEERING FAILURE
The warning light switches on when the ignition device is brought to the ENGINE position, but it
should switch off after a few seconds.
If the warning light remains on, the power steering may have no effect and the effort required to
operate the steering wheel may increase significantly even though it is possible to steer the car. In
this case, contact a Fiat Dealership.
If the warning light comes on while driving you may not have steering assistance. Although it will still
be possible to steer the vehicle, the effort needed to operate the steering wheel could be increased:
contact a Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
WARNING In some circumstances, factors independent of the electric power steering could cause
the warning light on the instrument panel to switch on. In this case, stop the car immediately (if you
are moving), stop the motor for about 20 seconds (taking the ignition device to the STOP position)
and then restart the motor ("READY" status). If the warning light stays on, contact a Fiat Dealership.
WARNING The steering must be initialised after disconnecting the 12V battery. The warning light
turns on to indicate this. To carry out this procedure, slowly turn the steering wheel all the way from
one end to the other or drive in a straight line for about a hundred metres.
Amber warning lights
Warning light
What it means
ESC SYSTEM
The warning light switches on when the ignition device is brought to the ENGINE position, but it
should switch off after a few seconds.
ESC system activation
Flashing of the warning light while driving indicates the intervention of the ESC system.
ESC system failure
If the warning light does not go out or remains on whilst driving, go to a Fiat Dealership.
Hill Holder failure
The warning light turns on to indicate a Hill Holder system failure.
In this case, contact a Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
88
Warning light
What it means
PARTIAL / TOTAL DEACTIVATION OF ACTIVE SAFETY SYSTEMS
The turning on of the warning light indicates that some safety systems have been partially
deactivated by a driver's request.
REAR FOG LIGHT
The warning light switches on when the rear fog light is turned on.
ABS FAILURE
The warning light switches on when the ignition device is brought to the ENGINE position, but it
should switch off after a few seconds. The warning light will light up when the system is either
not working or not available. In this case the braking system maintains its efficiency unaltered but
without the advantage of the ABS system.
Drive carefully and contact a Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
iTPMS
(where provided)
Low tyre pressure
The warning light switches on constantly to indicate that the tyre pressure is lower than the
recommended value, in order to guarantee long tyre life and optical electrical energy consumption,
or to indicate a slow loss of pressure.
In this way the iTPMS warns the driver that one or more tyres may be flat and probably punctured.
In this case it is advisable to restore the correct pressure value. Once the normal operating
conditions of the car are restored, carry out the Tyre reset procedure.
WARNING Do not continue driving with one or more flat tyres as handling of the car may be
compromised. Stop the car, avoiding sharp braking and steering.
iTPMS failure/iTPMS temporarily deactivated
The warning light flashes for about 75 seconds and then stays on constantly to indicate that the
system is temporarily deactivated or faulty. The system goes back to normal operation when the
operating conditions allow it. If this is not the case, carry out the Tyre reset procedure after restoring
the normal operating conditions.
If the malfunction warning persists, contact a Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.

A control system warning light failure is indicated by a message on the instrument panel display.
WARNING
45) If the
warning light does not switch on or stays on whilst driving when the ignition device is turned to ENGINE, a failure may have
occurred in the restraint systems. In this case the airbags or pretensioners may not be deployed in an impact or, in a lower number of cases,
they may be deployed accidentally. Before continuing, contact a Fiat Dealership immediately to have the system checked.
46) A failure of the warning light
is indicated by the
symbol appearing on the display or by the
warning light blinking, depending on
the version. In this case, the
warning light may not indicate a possible problem with the airbag restraint system. Before continuing, contact
a Fiat Dealership immediately to have the system checked.
47) If the
warning light comes on while driving, stop the car immediately and contact a Fiat Dealership.
48) If the system signals a pressure drop on a specific tyre, it is recommended to check the pressure on all four tyres. The iTPMS does not
relieve the driver from the obligation to check the tyre pressure every month; it is not to be considered a system to replace servicing or a safety
system. Tyre pressure must be checked with tyres cold. Should it become necessary for whatever reason to check pressure with warm tyres,
do not reduce pressure even though it is higher than the prescribed value, but repeat the check when tyres are cold.
49) The iTPMS cannot indicate sudden tyre pressure drops (for example when a tyre bursts). In this case, stop the car, braking with caution
and avoiding abrupt steering. The system only warns that the tyre pressure is low: it is not able to inflate them. Insufficient tyre inflation
increases electrical energy consumption, reduces the tread duration and may affect your ability to drive safely.
