Fiat Punto: Car inactivity

Fiat Punto Owners Manual

If the car is to be left inactive for longer than a month, the following precautions should be noted:

  • park the car in covered, dry and if possible wellventilated premises;
  • engage a gear;
  • check that the handbrake is not engaged;
  • disconnect battery terminals (first disconnect the negative terminal) and check the battery charge.

    This check is to be repeated every three months.

    Recharge if the optical indicator shows a dark colour without the central green area;

  • clean and protect the painted parts using protective wax;
  • clean and protect the shiny metal parts using special compounds readily available;
  • sprinkle talcum powder on the rubber windscreen and rear window wiper blades and lift them off the glass;
  • slightly open the windows;
  • cover the car with a cloth or perforated plastic sheet. Do not use sheets of non-perforated plastic as they do not allow moisture on the car body to evaporate;
  • inflate tyres to +0.5 bar above the normal specified pressure and check it at intervals;
  • if you don’t disconnect the battery from the electric system, check its charge every month and recharge it if the optical indicator shows a dark colour without the central green area;
  • do not drain the engine cooling system.
