Reset restoring memorized speed Fiat Idea

Reset restoring memorized speed Fiat Idea. Manufactured in 2003 – 2012.

Cruise control (constant speed regulator) (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.

Turning the device on. Turn the ring A-fig. 75 to ON.

The device can be turned on in 4th or 5th
gear only. 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 turns on together with the relevant message on the instrument panel (where provided).

Storing the speed.

Proceed as follows:

  • turn ring A-fig. 75 to ON and press the accelerator pedal to the required speed;
  • push the lever upwards (+) for at least 1 second, then release it: the car speed will be stored. The accelerator pedal may be released.

If needed (e.g. for overtaking), press the accelerator pedal to accelerate: the car will return to the previously set speed when the pedal is released.

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

accelerate gradually until reaching a speed approaching the stored speed;

engage the gear selected when the speed was stored (4th or 5th gear);

press button RES B-fig. 75.

Increasing the memorized speed.

The stored speed can be increased in two ways:

  • by pressing the accelerator and then storing the new speed reached;


  • 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.

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

Reducing the memorized speed Fiat Idea.

The stored speed can be increased in two ways:

by turning the device off and then storing a new speed;


moving the stalk downwards (–) until reaching the new speed which will be memorised automatically.

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

Disengaging the device.

Turn ring A-fig. 75 to OFF or the ignition key to STOP. If the device has been disengaged, for example by pressing the brake or clutch pedal.

If the device is faulty, turn ring A to OFF, check the fuse and contact a Fiat Dealership.
