Fiat Fuel Cut-Off System
For both Fiat diesel and petrol versions, in the event of a vehicle impact, the fuel cut-off system intervenes causing:
- the fuel supply to the engine to switch off.
- doors to the vehicle to unlock.
- vehicle internal lights to switch on.
- the climate control ventilation system to deactivate.
- the hazard warning lights to activate.
On certain models of Fiat, the fuel cut-off intervention is indicated by a message and warning light on the display dashboard panel. In the event of a fuel cut-off system failure, a warning light and dedicated message will also be displayed.
After a collision, place the igntion key into the STOP position to prevent the battery from running down. It’s important to check the vehicle for fuel leaks. Check in the engine compartment, under the vehicle and around the fuel tank area.
