  • STOP: engine off, key can be removed, steering column locked.

    Certain electrical devices (e.g.: sound system, power windows, etc.) can work.

If the
ignition device is tampered with (e.g.: attempted theft), have it checked over by a Fiat Dealership.


When getting out of the car, always remove the key to prevent any occupants from accidentally activating the controls. Remember to engage the handbrake. If the car is parked on uphill slope to engage the first gear. If the car is facing downhill, engage the reverse gear. Never leave unsupervised children in the car.

ignition key while the car is moving. The steering wheel would automatically lock as soon as you try to turn it. This also applies when the car is being towed.

It is absolutely
forbidden to carry out whatever after-market operation involving steering system or steering column modifications (e.g.: installation of anti-theft device) that could badly affect performance and safety, cause the lapse of warranty and also result in non-compliance of the car with homologation requirements.
