The fuse is a protective device for the electric system: it comes into action

The fuse is a protective device for the electric system: it comes into action (i.e. it cuts off) mainly due to a fault or improper action on the system.

When a device does not work, check the efficiency of its fuse. The conductor element (A) must be intact. If not, replace the fuse with one of the same amp rating (same colour).

(B): undamaged fuse
(C): fuse with damaged filament.

To facilitate fuse replacement, use the pliers (D) located in the fuse box.

Never replace a fuse with metal wires or anything else.

WARNING

Never replace a fuse with another with a higher amp rating; DANGER OF FIRE.

WARNING

If a general fuse (MAXI-FUSE) cuts in, do not attempt any repair and contact a Fiat Dealership. Before replacing a fuse, make sure the ignition key has been removed and that all the other services are switched off and/or disengaged.

WARNING

If fuse blows again, contact a Fiat Dealership.
