Help! Has my car been clocked?

I purchased my first car about a month ago. The mileage is supposed to be 27,000 But for the first time today a new symbol came up with DisA with mileage. I've attached a picture below. Anyone any ideas on what this means??

That's the normal trip mileage which you can rest, it's done 129.8 miles since it was last reset.

On many fiats there are two trip computers Dis A and Dis B

Hello and welcome.

There are on the 500 too.

You may need to turn DisB on in the menu before you can use it - it's optional whether to display it or not.

Hi,
that's the display of the trip distance - if you scroll through it'll have info on the MPG, and average speed for
BOTH the

A- trip distance..
and
B - trip distance

as you get used to the car it's good to compare the longer term

.. and the road trip..or tank fill to tank fill readings

the MPG isn't 100% accurate.. but the distances covered should be representative.

Charlie

There is a button on the end of the wiper stalk that if held in will reset this and associated mpg etc and a short press will scroll through other options back to date (assuming that's what you usually have ?)

It can take upto 10 presses of the button on the end of the stalk to get back to what you want, say the radio display.

Or turn it off and sometimes it seems to reset?
