Turning the ignition key to MAR the warning light turns on, but it should go off after few seconds.
The warning light turns on when the engine is overheated.
If the warning light comes on, proceed as follows:
– normal driving conditions: stop the vehicle, switch off the engine and check whether the water level in the reservoir is not below the MIN mark.
Otherwise wait for few seconds to allow the engine cooling, then open slowly and carefully the cap, top up coolant and check whether its level is falling between MIN and MAX marks in the reservoir. Check visually any leak. If, when restarting, the warning light comes on again, contact Fiat Dealership.
– vehicle heavy duty (e.g.: towing trailer uphill of fully laden vehicle): decrease speed, if the warning light stays on, stop the vehicle. Wait for 2 or 3 minutes leaving the engine on and slightly accelerated to further activate the circulation of the coolant fluid, then switch the engine off. Check proper coolant level as described previously.
Under severe use of the vehicle, keep the engine on and slightly accelerated for few minutes before switching it off. On certain versions the dedicated message is displayed.
