Each time the ignition key is turned to STOP, or PARK, the protection system will automatically immobilise the engine.
When the key is turned to MAR to start the engine:
1) if the code is recognised the () warning light on the instrument panel will flash briefly; this means the protection system has recognised the key code and deactivates the immobiliser, turn the key to AVV, and the engine will start.
2) If the warning light () stays on, the code was not recognised. In this case, turn the key to STOP and then back to MAR. If the engine remains immobilised, try with the other key provided.
If you are still unable to start the engine, use the emergency starting procedure (see “In an emergency”) and take your vehicle to the nearest Fiat Dealership.
When the vehicle is traveling and the key is at MAR:
1) if the warning light () comes on while the vehicle is moving, this means that the system is running a selftest (e.g. due to a voltage drop).
2) if the warning light () flashes, the vehicle is not protected by the engine immobiliser. Contact a Fiat Dealership immediately and get them to store the codes of all the keys in the memory.
The electronic components inside the key may be damaged if the key is subjected to sharp knocks.
Each key provided with the vehicle has its own code, different from all the others, which must be stored in the memory of the system control unit.
