Handbrake

The handbrake lever is located between the two front seats.

Pull the handbrake lever upwards until the car cannot be moved. Four or five clicks are generally enough when the car is on level ground while nine or ten may be required if the car is on a steep slope or laden.

IMPORTANT If this is not the case, contact Fiat Dealership to have the handbrake adjusted.

When the handbrake lever is pulled up and the ignition key is at MAR the panel warning light WARNING will come on.
