Changing the battery

If required, replace the battery with a genuine spare part having the same specifications.

If a battery with different specifications is fitted, the service intervals given in the Service schedule in this section will no longer be valid. Refer to the instructions provided by the battery manufacturer.

Incorrect fitting of electrical and electronic accessories can seriously damage the car.

Batteries contain substances that are very harmful for the environment. You are advised to have the battery changed at a Fiat Dealership, which is properly equipped for disposing of used batteries respecting nature and the law.

WARNING

If the car is left inactive for long periods at cold, remove the battery and store it in WARNING a warm place to prevent freezing.
