500L Heating Control

Need some help with the Automatic Climate Control in this vehicle, the manual we got has the steering wheel on the left of the car which is wrong for UK and the heating system is completely different than whats in the car.

What would you like to know?

The hard copy user guide for mine only shows a LHD version and covers the electronic climate control, there is mention of the manual air conditioning in the manual on page 44 - are you sure you have automatic climate control, or is it just basic air con like mine?

Re: 500L Heating Control

Usually the manuals contain at least a couple of dashboard configurations to cover the major markets. The side the steering wheel is placed is just pot luck, and it has been like this for years. Sometimes there are minor differences but usually everything is covered even though it is a mirror image. Naturally the bonnet release isn't carried over for our market, and that's the case for many cars.

It looks like there has been a rush to get this car to market and the peripherals haven't quite caught up.

Very Fiat

Basically how it works, does it have to be set to Auto, what do the 3 arrows mean and why does the AC keep coming on when I use Auto ? Ill have another look at the manual tomorrow. I went to the index and it only had one page listed under heating and that wasnt for the Automatic Climate Control System ?

It sounds very much like the system that is described on page 49 of the manual.

The three arrows set the air distribution and the a/c will likely come on and off depending on what you have set the temp. at.
