Cruise control, constant speed regulator, for versions/markets, where provided Fiat Grande Punto.

It is a device able to support the driver, with electronic control, which allows driving at speed over 30 km/h on long and straight dry roads (e.g.: motorways), at a desired speed, without pressing the accelerator pedal. Therefore it is not suggested to use this device on extra-urban roads with traffic. Do not use it in town.

The Cruise Control cannot be engaged in first or reverse gear. It is advisable to engage it in 4th or higher gears.

When the device is activated the warning light Device engagement Fiat Grande Punto turns on together with the relevant message on the instrument panel (for versions/markets, where provided).

Reset the memorised speed Fiat Grande Punto

 

To memorise speed Fiat Grande Punto.

Proceed as follows:

  • turn knob A-fig. 39 to ON and press the accelerator pedal to the required speed;
  • move the stalk upwards (+) for at least one second, then release it. The car speed is memorised and it is therefore possible to release the accelerator pedal.

In the case of need (when overtaking for instance) acceleration is possible simply pressing the accelerator pedal: releasing the accelerator pedal, the car will return to the speed memorised previously.

To reset the memorised speed Fiat Grande Punto.

If the device has been disengaged for example pressing the brake or clutch pedal, the memorised speed can be reset as follows:

  • accelerate gradually until reaching a speed approaching the one memorised;
  • engage the gear selected at the time of speed memorising;
  • press button RES B-fig. 39.

To increase the memorised speed Fiat Grande Punto.

The speed memorised can be increased in two ways:

  • pressing the accelerator and then memorising the new speed reached; or.
  • moving the stalk upwards (+).

Each operation of the stalk will correspond to a slight increase in speed (about 1 km/h), while keeping the stalk upwards will correspond to a continuous speed increase.

To reduce memorised speed Fiat Grande Punto.

The speed memorised can be increased in two ways:

  • disengaging the device and then memorising the new speed;
  • moving the stalk downwards (–) until reaching the new speed which will be memorised automatically.

Each operation of the stalk will correspond to a slight reduction in speed (about 1 km/h), while keeping the stalk downwards will correspond to a continuous speed reduction.

Device disengagement Fiat Grande Punto.

The device can be disengaged in the following ways:

  • turn knob A to OFF;
  • turning the engine off;
  • pressing the brake pedal;
  • pressing the clutch pedal;
  • pressing the accelerator pedal; in this case the system is not really disengaged but the request for acceleration takes priority over the system. The cruise control is however active and it will not be necessary to press button RES B-fig. 39 to resume previous conditions after ending acceleration.

The device is automatically deactivated in one of the following cases:

  • ABS or ESP system cut-in;
  • with car speed below the preset limit;
  • system failure.

When travelling with the device on, never set the gearshift lever to neutral.

In the event of device malfunction or failure, turn knob A to OFF and contact a Abarth Dealership.
