Part 1: FIAT 500L (BF) – Two Routines that Must Be Run Upon Arrival

 

There are two routines that must be run for the 500L to be taken fully out of shipping mode:

 

Routine 1:  Exit Shipping Mode

  1. Select the BCM Module.
  2. Select the Misc Functions tab.
  3. Select the Exit Shipping Mode routine.
  4. Follow the prompts on the screen to complete the procedure.

Routine 2: Configure Door Locks

  • The 500L ships with the door locks not configured to the vehicle, and also has a flashing door lock light on the dash under the radio.
  • This flashing lock LED is to let the technician know that the door locks have not been configured.
  • Run the Configure Door Locks routine to correct the situation and stop the blinking LED.
  • The Configure Door Locks routine requires a 5-digit key code unique to the vehicle VIN. The 5-digit key code can only be obtained from DealerCONNECT by authorized personnel (see Service Manager).
  1. Select the Vehicle Preparations tab.
  2. Select the Configure Door Locks routine.
  3. Select the Continue button.
  4. Follow the prompts on the screen to complete the procedure.

Critical Note: In rare cases, a 4-digit key code may be returned by DealerCONNECT for a 500L. Please contact STAR if this occurs.

 

Part 2: FIAT 500L (BF) – Maintenance Light (Wrench Light) in EVIC

 

How to Confirm Feature is Disabled:

  1. Scroll through the EVIC menu and look for an option called Service.
  2. If this option does not exist, this feature has already been disabled from the vehicle.

SUMMARY

  • The FIAT 500L is equipped with a service maintenance light (wrench light) in the EVIC.
  • This light is different from the oil maintenance light, and is used to notify customers they have reached a given mileage that calls for maintenance action.
  • If a vehicle has the wrench light illuminated (see image below), connect to the vehicle with wiTECH using 14.01 or later software, and the feature will automatically be disabled.
