Proceed as follows:

  • Ensure that the handbrake is up;
  • Put the gear lever into neutral;
  • Turn the ignition key to MAR. The warning lights and
    will light up on the instrument
    panel;
  • Wait for the warning lights and
    to go out.

The hotter the engine is, the quicker this will happen;

  • Press the clutch pedal down to the floor without touching the accelerator;
  • Turn the ignition key to AVV as soon as warning light mgoes out. If you wait too long you will lose the benefit of the work done by the glow plugs.

    Release the key as soon as the engine starts.

  • If the engine does not start at the first attempt, return the ignition key to STOP before repeating starting.

    If, when the ignition key is on MAR, warning light
    remains lit, turn the key to STOP and then back to MAR; if the warning light remains on, try with the other keys provided with the car.

    If you still cannot start the engine, contact Fiat Dealership.

    IMPORTANT Never leave the ignition key at MAR when the engine is off.

The warning light
will flash for 60 seconds at
start-up or during prolonged cranking to signal a fault in the glow plug heating system. You can use the car as usual if the engine starts but you should contact a Fiat Dealership as soon as possible.
