Fiat Punto: Emergency start-up

Fiat Punto Owners Manual

If the Fiat CODE system fails to deactivate engine immobilising system the warning lights and

stay on and the engine cannot be started.

To start the engine the emergency start-up can be performed.

Read the whole procedure carefully before trying to carry it out. If you make a mistake, you must turn the ignition key back to STOP and repeat the whole operation from beginning.

Proceed as follows:

  • Read the 5-figure electronic code given on the CODE card;
  • Turn the ignition key to MAR;
  • Press and hold down the accelerator pedal. The warning light turns on for
    about 8 seconds, and then goes off;
  • Release the accelerator pedal and get ready to count the flashes of the warning
    light;
  • Count the number of flashes that corresponds to the first figure of the code on the CODE card, then press the accelerator pedal and keep it there until the warning light comes on (for
    4 seconds) and then goes off; release the accelerator pedal;
  • The warning light will
    start flashing again: after it has flashed the number of times that corresponds to the second figure on the CODE card, press the accelerator pedal to the floor and keep it there;
  • Do the same for the remaining figures on the CODE card;
  • Once the final figure has been entered, keep the accelerator pedal pressed. The warning light U will light up for 4 seconds and then goes out.

    Release the accelerator pedal;

  • Rapid flashing of the warning light (for about 4
    seconds) confirms the operation has been carried out successfully;
  • Start the engine by turning the ignition key from MAR to AVV.

If however the warning light stays
on, turn the ignition key to STOP and repeat the procedure from step one IMPORTANT After an emergency start-up, you should contact a Fiat Dealership otherwise you will have to repeat the procedure described each time you want to start the engine.
