Fiat Punto: ABS system

Fiat Punto Owners Manual

The car is fitted with an ABS braking system, which prevents the wheels from locking when braking, makes the most of road grip and gives the best control when emergency braking under difficult road conditions.

System is completed by EBD (Electronic Braking Force Distribution), which distributes the braking action between front and rear wheels.

If the ABS system cuts in it is a sign that the grip between the tyre and the road surface has reached the limit: you must slow down to match the speed to the road grip available.

IMPORTANT To have the maximum efficiency of the braking system, it is necessary a setting period of about 500 km: during this period, it is better to avoid sharp, repeated and prolonged brakes.

ABS INTERVENTION

When braking a slight pulsing accompanied by noise may be felt on the brake pedal due to the action of the ABS system.

The ABS exploits the
tyre-road grip at the best, but it cannot improve it; you should therefore take every care when driving on slippery surfaces without taking unnecessary risks.

When the ABS cuts in,
and you feel the brake pedal pulsating, do not remove your foot, but keep it pressed; in doing so you will stop in the shortest amount of space possible under the current road conditions.

FAILURE WARNINGS

ABS failure

If warning light lights up
together with the message on the reconfigurable multifunction display (where provided) (see section “Warning lights and messages”) this indicates a fault in the ABS system.

In this case the braking system will still be effective, although without the anti-lock device. Drive carefully to the nearest Fiat Dealership to have the system checked.

EBD failure

If warning lights and
light up together with the
message on the reconfigurable multifunction display (where provided) (see section “Warning lights and messages”) this indicates a fault in the EBD system.

In this case with sharp braking the rear wheels might lock too early, with the possibility of skidding. Drive extremely carefully to the nearest Fiat Dealership to have the system checked.

If the warning light
comes on together with the
message on the reconfigurable multifunction display, stop the car immediately and contact the nearest Fiat Dealership. Fluid leaks from the hydraulic system, in fact, can compromise the braking system, both traditional systems and systems with ABS
