Reset trip computer Fiat Linea. Manufactured in 2007 – present.

Trip computer general features Fiat Linea.

The “Trip computer” is used to display information on car operation when the key is turned to MAR. This function allows to define two separate trips called “Trip A” and “Trip B” for monitoring the car’s “complete mission” in a reciprocally independent manner. Both functions are resettable (reset – start of new mission).

  • Travel time (driving time).

“Trip B”, available on multifunctional display only, shall be used to display the figures relating to:

  • Trip distance B.
  • Average consumption B.
  • Average speed B.
  • Travel time B (driving time).

“Trip B” functions may be excluded (see “Trip B on”). “Range” and “Instantaneous consumption” cannot be reset.

Values displayed – range.

This indicates the distance which may be travelled with the fuel in the tank assuming that driving conditions will not change. The message “——” will appear on the display in the following cases:

  • range shorter than 50 km (or 30 mi).
  • car left parked with engine running for long.
