Reset the memorised speed Fiat Punto

How to reset the memorised speed Fiat Punto.

Cruise control where provided.

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.

Reset the memorised speed Fiat Punto

Device engagement.

Turn knurled ring (A) to ON.

The device may only be engaged in the 4th or 5th or 6th gear. Travelling downhill with the device engaged, the car speed may increase more than the memorised one.

When the device is activated, the warning light Device engagement Fiat Grande Punto on the instrument cluster turns on together with the message on the reconfigurable multifunction display (where provided) (see section “Warning lights and messages”).

To memorise speed.

Proceed as follows:

  • turn the knurled ring (A) to ON and press the accelerator pedal to the required speed;
  • turn the knurled ring (B) to (+) for at least three seconds, 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; later, releasing the accelerator pedal, the car will return to the speed memorised previously.

To reset the memorised speed.

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 (4th or 5th or 6th gear);
  • press the RES button (C).

To increase the memorised speed.

The speed memorised can be increased in two ways:

  • pressing the accelerator and then memorising the new speed reached;

or

  • momentaneously turning the ring (B) to (+).

Each pulse of the ring will correspond to a slight increase in speed (about 1 km/h), while pressing continuously will correspond to a continuous speed increase.

To reduce memorised speed.

The speed memorised can be increased in two ways:

  • disengaging the device and then memorising the new speed;

or

  • keeping the ring (B) pressed at (–) until reaching the new speed which will be memorised automatically.

Each pulse of the ring will correspond to a slight reduction in speed (about 1 km/h), while pressing continuously will correspond to a continuous speed reduction.

Device disengagement.

Turn the ring (A) to OFF or the ignition key to STOP. The device is automatically deactivated also in one of the following cases:

  • pressing the brake or clutch pedal;
  • ESP or ASR systems cut-in (where provided);
  • gearshifting in versions with Dualogic automatic transmission (where provided);
  • unvoluntarily moving the Dualogic lever (where provided) to (N).

When travelling with the device on, do not put the gearbox lever in neutral and do not shift the Dualogic gearbox lever (where provided) to (N).

In the event of device malfunction or failure, turn the knurled ring (A) to OFF and contact a Fiat Dealership after checking the protective fuse integrity.
