The fiat code system

To further protect you car from theft, it has been fitted with an engine immobilising system. This system is automatically activated when the ignition key is removed.

An electronic device, in fact, is fitted in each ignition key grip. The device transmits a radio-frequency signal when the engine is started through a special aerial built into the ignition switch. The modulate signal, which changes each time the engine is started, is the password by means of which the control unit recognises the key and enables to start the engine.
