Smart washing function

Pulling the stalk towards the steering wheel (unstable position) operates the

Pulling the stalk towards the steering wheel (unstable position) operates the windscreen washer; indeed, the latter comes into action automatically if the stalk is pulled for more than half a second.

The wiper stops working three strokes after releasing the stalk. On certain versions a further cleaning stroke, after a few seconds, completes the wiping operation.

Operating the stalk quickly and repeatedly (for less than half a second) it is possible to wet the windscreen several times without operating the wiper.

Never use the window wiper to remove ice or snow from the windscreen. In these conditions, the wiper is submitted to excessive effort that results in motor protection cutting in and wiper operation inhibition for few seconds as a consequence. If operation is not restored contact Fiat Dealership.
