Reset trip computer Fiat Stilo

How to reset trip computer manual by the user on a Fiat Stilo. The “Trip computer” displays information (with ignition key at MAR), relating to the operating status of the car.

This function comprises the “General trip” concerning the “complete mission” of the car (journey) and “Trip B”, concerning the partial mission of the car; this latter function is “contained” (as shown in fig. 25) within the complete mission. Both functions are resettable (reset – start of new mission).

“General Trip” displays the figures relating to:

  • Range.
  • Trip distance.
  • Average consumption.
  • Instant consumption.
  • Average speed.
  • Trip time (driving time).

“Trip B” displays the figures relating to:

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

“Trip B” function can be excluded (see paragraph “Trip B On/Off”). “Range” and “Instant consumption” cannot be reset.

Values displayed

Range

This value shows the distance in km (or mi) that the car can still cover before needing fuel, assuming that driving conditions are kept unvaried. The display will show “—-” if the range value is below 50 km (or 30 mi).

Trip distance

This value shows the distance covered from the start of the new mission.

Average consumption

This value shows the average consumption from the start of the new mission.

Instant consumption

This value shows instant fuel consumption (this value is updated second by second). If parking the car with engine on, the display will show “—-”.
