Inefficient abs system

Turning the ignition key to MAR the warning light on the dial turns on, but it should go off after few seconds.

The warning light turns on (on certain versions together with the message on the display) when the system is inefficient or not available. In this case the braking system keeps its effectiveness unchanged, but without the potential offered by the ABS system. Caution is advisable, particularly in all cases of less than perfect grip. It is therefore necessary to contact Fiat Dealership.

EBD failure - System not available

The turning on at the same time of the x and > warning lights on the dial (on certain versions together with the message on the display) with the engine running indicates an EBD system failure; or that the system is not available. In this case heavy braking may cause the rear wheels to lock before time, with the possibility of skidding. Drive with the utmost care to the nearest Fiat Dealership to have the system checked.
