The top can be opened and closed using the controls inside the car located near the courtesy light or the remote control buttons (while opening and for the horizontal part only). fig. 1 – Open to spoiler position F0S0155m fig. 3 F0S0300m SUGGESTIONS OPERATION USING THE BUTTONS INSIDE THE CAR It is advisable to close the top when the car is parked. The closed top effectively protects the car from rain and from theft. WARNING The motor may overheat if the top is repeatedly operated in a short time. The system may be blocked by the overheating protection in this case. Wait for a minute and repeat. It is advisable to put valuables in the boot and lock the lid even when the top is closed. Opening the soft top fig. 2 – Full open position F0S0156m The soft top can be automatically opened from closed position to spoiler position fig. 1 and from this position to full open position fig. 2. From soft top completely closed Press the “one-touch” button once Afig. 3 to open the soft top automatically to the horizontal opening position (spoiler position). If one of the two buttons is pressed before reaching the stop position, the soft top may stop in an intermediate horizontal opening position. 3 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 From soft top in intermediate horizontal position From the horizontal intermediate position press the “one-touch” button Afig. 3 to move the soft top automatically to the horizontal completely open position (spoiler position). From soft top in spoiler position to soft top completely open From the spoiler position press the “one-touch” button A-fig. 3 to bring the soft top automatically to completely open position (vertical opening). If one of the two buttons is pressed before reaching the final position, the soft top will stop and movement will be reversed to the initial position (spoiler position). IMPORTANT The vertical opening will be inhibited if the tailgate is open. IMPORTANT If the soft top locks during its movement, it may lose the position; in this case, you should carry out a complete opening/closing cycle. 4 Pagina 4 Closing the soft top From soft top completely open Press the “one-touch” button B-fig. 3 once to automatically close the soft top to spoiler position (vertical closing). If one of the two buttons is pressed before reaching the spoiler position, the soft top will stop and movement will be reversed to the initial position (completely open position). From spoiler position to soft top completely closed Press the button “one-touch” button Bfig. 3 in spoiler position to bring the soft top automatically to safety position (approximately 25 cm from completely closed position). If one of the two buttons is pressed before reaching the stop position, the soft top may stop in an intermediate horizontal opening position. NOTE The soft top will not automatically close completely. Keep button B-fig. 3 pressed to close the soft top completely. The soft top will stop immediately if the button is released between reaching the completely closed position. From intermediate position to soft top completely closed Press the “one-touch” button B-fig. 3 in horizontal intermediate position to bring the soft top automatically to safety position (approximately 25 cm from horizontal completely closed position). Keep the button B-fig. 3 pressed to close the soft top completely.

The tailgate can be opened in spoiler position. fig. 5 F0S0157m OPERATION BY MEANS OF REMOTE CONTROL The remote control can only by used with the engine off and the doors closed. NOTE The remote control can only open the soft top along its horizontal section (up to the spoiler position). Keep the release button pressed A-fig. 5 to open the soft top. When the button is released it will stop in any position. Never open the soft top in presence of snow or ice to prevent damage. WARNING Keep children away from the soft top turning area when opening and closing the top. 5 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 WARNING When leaving the car, always remove the key from the ignition to avoid the risk of injury to passengers due to accidental operation of the top. Improper use of the top can be dangerous. Before and during operation, always check that no passenger is at risk of being injured directly by the moving top or by objects getting caught in or hit by the top. Do not place objects on the parcel shelf to prevent damage while the top is closing. Do not position loads on the top. 6 Pagina 6 ❒ The horizontal and vertical part of the top can be operated at any speed lower than 100 and 80 km/h respectively. ❒ When the soft top is opened using the relevant control, if the heated rear windscreen had been engaged it is automatically deactivated and the warning light switches off. ❒ The top can be operated at any temperature in the range from −18 to +80 . ❒ Do not remove ice from the top with sharp items. ❒ It is recommended to have the engine running always when opening or closing the soft top. ❒ Do not use scrapers or sprays to remove ice from the heated rear window to prevent damage. ❒ If required, remove the battery with open or closed soft top, but NOT when the soft top is moving. ❒ Do not put objects on the top: they could fall if the top is operated causing damage and injury. ❒ Do not fix luggage transport devices to the top and do not travel with objects resting on the open top. ❒ It is advisable to cover the top with a protective sheet if the car is left parked in the open for a long time. ❒ The activation of the heated rear windscreen, upon request by the user, is carried out only if the soft top is completely closed. If the soft top is closed incorrectly, the heated rear windscreen does not operate and the relevant warning light does not come on. ❒ Do not keep the top open for a long time: this could cause folds and creases in the fabric. IMPORTANT NOTES 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 7 ❒ Before moving the soft top, check that there is enough room to carry out the operation and that there are no obstacles or people close to the moving parts of the soft top. ❒ The cooled air flow into the passenger compartment may decrease if the automatic climate control system is on and the top is not completely closed. ❒ With the top open and the car in motion, the voice recognition system may not recognise the voice commands because of the background noise. With top closed and at a high speed, the voice function for number dialling may not be recognised. EMERGENCY OPERATION If the control buttons fail, the soft top can be moved manually proceeding as described below: ❒ take the key A-fig. 6 provided and located in the luggage compartment in combination with the tool box or the Fix&Go Automatic kit. fig. 6 F0S0307m fig. 7 F0S0135m fig. 8 F0S0302m If the tailgate cannot be opened (e.g. because of a flat battery or a failure in the tailgate electric lock), proceed as follows: ❒ remove the head restraints and fold the backrests; ❒ to release the tailgate mechanically, from inside the luggage compartment, operate the lever A-fig. 7; ❒ introduce the key A-fig. 6 in the position shown in fig. 8 (located inside the luggage compartment, underneath the parcel shelf); To restore automatic movement conditions, contact an Abarth Dealership. ❒ turn the key clockwise to open the soft top or anti-clockwise to close it. 7 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 8 INITIALISATION PROCEDURE The soft top must be re-initialised after disconnecting the battery or if the relevant protection fuse is blown. Proceed as follows: ❒ before carrying our any operation, make sure the motor is running during the whole initialisation procedure; ❒ keep the opening button pressed until the soft top is completely open; ❒ when the soft top is completely open, keep the button pressed for at least 2 seconds; ❒ keep the closing button pressed until the soft top is completely closed; ❒ when the soft top is completely closed, keep the button pressed for at least 2 seconds. When the procedure is terminated, the soft top will automatically carry out a complete opening and closing cycle (up to 25 cm from the completely closed position) to inform the driver that correct operation has been restored. 8 fig. 9 F0S0334m WIND STOP The Wind Stop fig. 9 is designed to improve driving comfort, by reducing air turbulence in the passenger compartment when travelling with the top down. To use it: ❒ Release the backrest of the rear seat (single or split). ❒ Attach the Wind Stop by inserting the central part inside the rear screen guard, with the concave part in the direction of the passenger, as shown in the figure. ❒ Correctly re-position the backrest; the Wind Stop is locked between the seat and parcel shelf. fig. 10 F0S0308m With the Wind Stop fitted, it is still possible to move the electric hood. When not in use, the Wind Stop should be stored in the luggage compartment without loading excessive weight on top of it; do not bend. FRONT SPOILER The car is provided with a front spoiler which can be raised to improve aerodynamic comfort inside the passenger compartment. To raise the spoiler, release the catch using the slider A-fig. 10 moving it to position b, as shown. Be careful not to move the slider Afig. 10 from position b to position a with the spoiler raised. 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 9 WASHING/CLEANING THE SOFT TOP Use of specific products is recommended for washing the top. fig. 11 F0S0309m To lower the spoiler, press the spoiler and when the catch is positioned in its housing fig. 11 move the slider to position a fig. 10 to lock it. It is advisable to raise the spoiler when the horizontal segment of the top is open and at speeds faster than 50 km/h. With the top completely open, it is advisable to keep the spoiler lowered to limit wind noise inside the passenger compartment. Raising the spoiler will reduce the flow of air to the rear seats. The top fabric is treated with a special water-repellent, waterproofing product. The water-repellent properties will degrade in time with exposure to the elements. Observe the following instructions for washing: Bird droppings and plant resins must be washed off immediately and thoroughly as the acid they contain is particularly aggressive. Never use high-pressure washing systems. When using steam washers or high-pressure water washers, maintain a suitable distance and do not exceed a maximum temperature of 60 °C. Damage, deformations and water infiltration may occur if the distance is too small or the pressure is too high. If a water jet is used, direct away from the edges of the fabric and the rear window frame to prevent water infiltration. Never use alcohol, petrol, chemical products, detergents, stain removers, wax, solvents and “wash and polish” products. 9 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Remove as much dirt from the surface of the soft top with a soft brush or vacuum cleaning before washing it. This operation will considerably improve the final result. Pagina 10 Waterproofing the top Use specific waterproofing products for fabric tops. In absence of specific products, use water and mild soap applied with a sponge preferably in the shade for washing. Rinse the soft top with clean water after having eliminated all the stains. Hand washing is recommended; modern automatic washing systems equipped with soft brushes which do not apply excessive pressure and employ specific soft top products may be used. Rinse immediately to remove soap to prevent stains and blots. Repeat the operation if needed. Leave the car in the shade after washing avoiding direct sunlight. 10 Follow the instructions on the waterproofing product container for optimum results. The rubber seals of the top must be washed with water only. Apply talcum power or use specific rubber care products (silicone spray) if the seals are dry or partially stuck. Interior top fabric Remove dust with a soft brush. Avoid using hard brushes made of synthetic material to prevent damaging the fabric beyond repair. Clean the surface with a microfibre cloth or soft sponge dipped in a solution of water and mild soap. Clean the entire surface, including the zones where cleaning is not needed, to prevent stains. Use common, car care mild stain removers for more stubborn stains. Apply by blotting (never rubbing) directly on the area of the stain. 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 11 ABARTH COMPETIZIONE TRANSMISSION The vehicle is equipped with an electronically controlled manual transmission known as Abarth Competizione transmission which allows two operating logics: MANUAL and AUTO. The transmission consists of a conventional manual transmission to which an electronically-controlled electrohydraulic device that controls the clutch and gear shifts automatically has been added. STARTING THE VEHICLE Notes fig. 12 F0S0163m With key extracted from the starting device, the buttons on the gearbox dashboard (fig. 12) can be pressed with or without the brake pedal depressed. When the buttons are pressed, the system will not perform any activation, therefore the speed engaged before switching off the engine remains engaged. With vehicle stationary and key in the MAR position (ignition-operated electrical services activated), the screen displays the speed engaged and the active operating mode (automatic = AUTO or manual = no display). ❒ At starting, the system sets in AUTO mode. ❒ With the buttons 1, N, R and brake pedal depressed, the 1st speed, neutral (N) and reverse (R) can be engaged. ❒ With the buttons 1, N, R and without depressing the brake pedal, no gear change request is implemented by the system. ❒ With the levers on the steering wheel (see paragraph “Levers on the steering wheel”) and even with the brake pedal depressed, no gear can be engaged. ❒ If the vehicle is switched off with mode SPORT or NORMAL active, the mode previously set is maintained when the engine is restarted. 11 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 12 OPERATING MODES The transmission can work in two operating modes: ❒ the first manual type (MANUAL), in which the driver decides directly when to change gear; ❒ the second completely automatic (AUTO), in which the system decides when to make the gear change. Manual operation (MANUAL) In this operating mode, the driver is responsible for choosing the best gear ratio to engage, depending on the car operating conditions. To change to a higher gear, operate the lever “+” on the steering wheel; to change to a lower gear, operate the lever “−”. If the request is accepted by the system, when the gear change is completed, the display shows the new gear engaged. 12 fig. 13 F0S0173m NOTE The system shows the gear actually engaged on the display and not the gear requested by the driver. If the request is not accepted by the system, the display shows the gear engaged before the request and an acoustic signal is emitted. If the gear change request may adversely affect the correct operation of the engine or the transmission, the system will not allow the gear change but will automatically change down if the engine reaches the idling speed (e.g. during deceleration). fig. 14 F0S0174m Automatic operation (AUTO) To switch automatic operation (AUTO) on/off, press the button A/M on the transmission panel; activation is signalled by the word AUTO and the gear engaged shown on the display (fig. 13-14). In AUTO mode the system changes gear depending on the vehicle speed, the engine rpm and the intensity with which the accelerator pedal is pressed. 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 To move the vehicle, the 1st, 2nd or the reverse (R) gear must always be engaged (with brake pedal depressed). A gear change can be requested using the control lever without having to switch off this mode: this function known as “gear suggestion” suspends the automatic mode for the time necessary to carry out the gear selection requested by the driver. 10:54 Pagina 13 “Kick Down” function M ENU The "Kick Down" function is also available: if necessary (for example when overtaking), the system downshifts one or more gears (if the rpm allow it) in order to provide suitable power and torque for the acceleration requested by the driver. In this way the engine speed and power can be suddenly increased and then automatically restored when the conditions set previously are resumed. WARNING The use of the “Kick Down” function is recommended only when overtaking or accelerating fast, in order not to increase fuel consumption. Pressing the button SPORT on the dashboard activates the “SPORT” mode (the word SPORT is displayed on the screen located inside the turbocharger pressure gauge – see paragraph “Information displayed”). If the button is pressed a second time, the “SPORT” mode is deactivated. MP3 CD FM AS RND RPT TPM CD-IN EQ LOUD AF LOC PTY TP TA RMB PB CD AM 1 2 3 4 fig. 15 5 6 AUD F0S0164m SPORT FUNCTION The driver can also use the SPORT function which enables a sporty driving setting by intervening on gear changes, the engine control unit and the steering. To activate this function, press the SPORT button (fig. 15) located on the dashboard. 13 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 14 STARTING THE ENGINE Important notes To start the engine press the brake pedal: the system engages neutral (N) automatically. If start-up is requested with the gearbox faulty, run the “Delayed startup” procedure (see paragraph “Warning lights and messages”): if the ignition key is turned to the AVV position for at least 7 seconds with brake pedal depressed, the engine will be started. The system will remain in a recovery situation (highest permitted gear 3rd, Automatic mode not available). If the engine does not start, contact an Abarth Dealership. After the starting procedure, the 1st speed (1) or reverse (R) can be engaged. fig. 16 F0S0159m LEVERS ON THE STEERING WHEEL fig. 16 These enable sequential gear shifting. The lever “+” on the steering wheel engages a higher gear, while the lever “–” engages a lower gear. The engagement of a lower (or higher) gear is only permitted if the engine revs allow it. Independently of the mode (AUTO/ MANUAL), to engage the 1st speed or the reverse (R), it is necessary to depress the brake pedal and press the button 1 on the transmission panel and the button R to engage the 1st speed and the reverse respectively. The levers on the steering wheel work only if the 1st speed has been engaged by pressing the button 1: setting off in 2nd speed is therefore possible by operating the “+“ lever with brake pedal depressed (in this case the selected mode AUTO/ MANUAL is kept active). IMPORTANT The 1st speed cannot be engaged by pressing the lever “−” on the steering wheel. 14 When the driver’s door is opened, the system activates the hydraulics so that they are prepared for the subsequent engine starting. 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 15 MOVING THE CAR Engaging the 1st speed Engaging the 2nd speed Starting the vehicle (setting off) is permitted in 1st and 2nd speed (recommended on road surfaces with poor grip) and reverse (R). Proceed as follows: Proceed as follows: ❒ press the brake pedal; ❒ press the brake pedal; ❒ press button 1 on the transmission panel; ❒ press button 1 on the transmission panel; ❒ release the brake pedal and press the accelerator pedal (fully depressing the pedal quickly to the end of travel position and switching off the ASR, if fitted, with a “lively” departure). ❒ operate the lever “+” on the steering wheel keeping the brake pedal depressed; Notes (concerning vehicle start up) The gears can only be engaged by pressing the brake pedal. If the brake pedal is not depressed, the display will show a dedicated message (see paragraph “Warning lights and messages”). Higher speeds that 2a cannot be engaged: in this case the display will show a dedicated message (see paragraph “Warning lights and messages”). ❒ release the brake pedal and press the accelerator pedal. Downshifting to the 1st speed is possible by operating the lever “−” behind the steering wheel. When setting off on a medium-steep incline, it is advisable to engage the handbrake. 15 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Engaging reverse (R) Reverse (R) can only be engaged with vehicle stationary and brake pedal depressed. Proceed as follows: ❒ press the brake pedal (vehicle completely stationary); ❒ press button R on the transmission panel; ❒ release the brake pedal and press the accelerator pedal. When reverse is engaged, the system emits an acoustic signal. If the brake pedal is not depressed (and the vehicle is stationary), the display will show a dedicated message (see paragraph “Warning lights and messages”) and the system will automatically engage neutral (N). 16 Pagina 16 IMPORTANT With the vehicle in motion, the request is accepted and executed if the vehicle speed drops below 3 km/h within 3 seconds from the request: if the request is not executed, the system will keep the speed engaged or, if the speed of the car drops below 10 km/h, will put the gearbox in neutral (N) and the manoeuvre will have to be repeated. ENGAGING NEUTRAL (N) Neutral (N) can only be engaged with accelerator pedal released, regardless of the brake pedal condition (depressed or not) (in any case, pressing the brake pedal is always recommended). The display will show the letter N together with the active operating mode. When trying to engage the neutral with accelerator pedal depressed, the system will not accept the request and maintain the speed engaged. In this case the display will show a dedicated message (see paragraph “Warning lights and messages”) and an acoustic signal is emitted. To engage a speed from the neutral (N) position, press button 1 on the transmission panel (it is not necessary to press the brake pedal): the gearbox will immediately choose the correct gear according to the vehicle’s speed. 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 17 The vehicle always starts with the mode AUTO active. If the SPORT function is used, the display (fig. 17) inside the turbocharger pressure gauge will show the word SPORT. fig. 17 F0S0287m DISPLAYED INFORMATION When the ignition key is turned to the MAR position, after about 1 second, the display will show the speed engaged and the last mode used (AUTO or MANUAL): IMPORTANT If 10 seconds elapse with the ignition key in the MAR position and the display does not show the gear engaged, turn the key to the STOP position, wait for the display to switch off and then repeat the manoeuvre. If the fault persists, contact an Abarth Dealership. WARNING BUZZER For safety reasons, an acoustic warning is emitted when parking the vehicle with the gearbox in neutral (N) (the warning can be heard when the ignition key is turned to the STOP position). With the vehicle stationary, engine running and (1st), (2nd) or (R) gear engaged, the system turns on the buzzer and automatically shifts the gearbox to neutral (N) when: ❒ the accelerator and/or the brake pedal are not operated for at least 3 minutes; ❒ the brake pedal is pressed for longer than 10 minutes; 1 = first speed; ❒ the driver’s door is opened and the accelerator pedal or the brake pedal are not operated for at least 1.5 seconds; 2 = second speed; ❒ a fault is detected in the transmission. N = neutral; 3 = third speed; 4 = fourth speed; 5 = fifth speed; R = reverse 17 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 18 PARKING THE CAR GENERAL WARNINGS To park safely, keeping a foot on the brake pedal, the 1st or reverse (R) gear must be engaged and, in case of parking uphills/ downhills, the handbrake must be engaged. Wait until the indication of the gear engaged disappears on the display before releasing the brake pedal. ❒ With car stationary and gear engaged, always keep the brake pedal pressed until you decide to set off, then release the brake and accelerate gradually. IMPORTANT NEVER leave the car with the gearbox in neutral (N). ❒ In order to safeguard the efficiency of the clutch, do not use the accelerator to keep the car stationary (e.g. when stopped on an incline); if the clutch overheats it could be damaged. Use the brake pedal or the hand brake and press the accelerator pedal only when you decide to set off. ❒ During prolonged stops with the engine running, it is advisable to keep the gearbox in neutral (N). ❒ Use the 2nd gear only when you need more control when setting off for manoeuvres on surfaces with poor grip. ❒ If, with reverse (R) engaged, you need to engage the 1st speed or vice versa, change gear only with vehicle stationary and brake pedal pressed. 18 ❒ Although it is highly inadvisable, if you are driving downhill and, for unexpected reasons, you let the car move forward with the transmission in neutral (N), when there is a request to engage a speed, depending on the actual speed of the car, the system will automatically engage the best speed for the correct transmission of drive torque to the wheels. ❒ When necessary, with the engine switched off, it is possible to engage the 1st speed, reverse (R) or neutral (N) with key in AVV position and brake pressed. In this case, it is advisable to change allowing at least 5 seconds to elapse between one gear change and the next to safeguard the operation of the hydraulic system and the pump in particular. ❒ Fully and quickly depressing the accelerator pedal activates a function that allows a “lively” departure. ❒ For departures on a hill, accelerating gradually but fully immediately after having released the handbrake or the brake pedal allows the engine to greatly increase the number of revs and tackle the steepest gradients with more torque at the wheels. 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 WARNING LIGHTS AND MESSAGES t CHECK TRANSMISSION – SEE HANDBOOK (red) When the ignition key is turned to MAR, the warning light turns on and should go off after a few seconds. The warning light on the instrument panel flashes (together with a message in the display and a buzzer) to indicate that the gearbox is faulty. If there is a fault in the transmission, contact an Abarth Dealership as soon as possible to check the system. 10:54 Pagina 19 REDUCE GEARS This message appears in the display to indicate that the driver is using the transmission incorrectly. Incorrect use (by the driver) could automatically activate a procedure for protecting the system. Contact an Abarth Dealership if the message remains in the display. AUTOMATIC METHOD UNAVAILABLE The message appears in the display when it is not possible to select AUTO mode with the engine running. Contact an Abarth Dealership if the message remains in the display. MANUAL METHOD UNAVAILABLE This message is shown in the display when it is not possible to select MANUAL mode with the engine running. Contact an Abarth Dealership if the message remains in the display. 19 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 CLUTCH OVERTEMPERATURE SEE HANDBOOK This message appears in the display together with a buzzer when the clutch overheats. In this situation, limit setting off and gear change or, if necessary, park (turning off the engine) until optimum conditions are restored. If the message still appears in the display, contact an Abarth Dealership. To safeguard clutch efficiency, do not use the accelerator to keep the car at a standstill (e.g.: parking on a hill); the clutch could be damaged by overheating. Use the brake pedal instead and operate the accelerator only when you are ready to set off. 20 Pagina 20 PRESS BRAKE PEDAL This message is shown in the display together with a buzzer during an attempt at starting when the brake pedal is not pressed. PRESS BRAKE PEDAL – DELAYED STARTUP The display shows these messages alternately and in sequence together with a buzzer when the system does not recognise the brake pedal as operational during a starting attempt. In this situation, keep the key on AVV for at least 7 seconds with the brake pressed. The engine will start. The system will be in recovery mode (maximum speed permitted: 3rd). IMPORTANT If start-up is requested with the gearbox faulty, run the “Delayed startup” procedure (see associated messages): turn the key to the AVV position for at least 7 seconds with the brake depressed and the engine will start. The system will be in recovery mode (highest gear permitted 3rd, Automatic mode not available). If the engine does not start, contact an Abarth Dealership. IMPORTANT The messages are only displayed if the engine is started with a gear other than neutral (N) engaged. Contact an Abarth Dealership if the messages remain in the display. 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 Pagina 21 GEAR NOT AVAILABLE OPERATION NOT PERMITTED SET TO NEUTRAL N (neutral) This message appears in the display together with a buzzer in the following cases: The message appears in the display together with a buzzer when the system will not accept a gear change via the control lever because certain conditions required for acceptance of the gear change are not met. This message appears in the display together with a warning buzzer when the system asks the driver to perform the manoeuvre. ❒ when it is not possible to change gear due to a fault in the system; or ❒ when, due to a fault in the system, it is only possible to engage 1st, 2nd, 3rd or reverse (R). Contact an Abarth Dealership if the message remains in the display. When the transmission is changed to (N) the message in the display should go off. PUSH BRAKE PEDAL – REPEAT OPERATION The message appears in the display accompanied, in some cases, by a buzzer for safety reasons if you attempt to change gear without previously pressing the brake pedal. Contact an Abarth Dealership if the message remains in the display. Contact an Abarth Dealership if the message remains in the display. 21 603_97_890 ABARTH 500C GB 1ed 31-05-2010 10:54 TOWING THE CAR Make sure that the transmission is in neutral (N) (checking that the car can be moved) and proceed in the same way as for towing a normal car with a manual gearbox (see description in Owner Handbook). If the transmission cannot be put in neutral, do not tow the vehicle and contact an Abarth Dealership. 22 Pagina 22 SCHEDULED SERVICING PLAN CHECKING FLUID LEVELS The gearbox oil is “For Life”-type and does not have to be checked regularly, excepting the cases of leaks or malfunction of the device.
