The warning light turns on (on certain versions together with the message on the display) when the engine is overheated. If the warning light comes on when driving, proceed as follows:

❒ Normal driving conditions: stop the car, 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 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 a Fiat Dealership;

❒ Car heavy duty (e.g.: towing trailer uphill or fully laden car): decrease speed, if the warning light stays on, stop the car.

Check proper coolant level as described previously.

IMPORTANT Under severe use of the car, keep the engine on and slightly accelerated for few minutes before switching it off.
