newbie to the forum, be gentle!

Hello from a newbie!
Hoping some of the forum members might be able to help....
My daughter has a 2013 Fiat 500 Lounge. A number 3 has appeared at the side of the headlight symbol on the dash display.
Any ideas what this means, please?

Welcome!!

It's the beam angle setting. I'm not sure where the adjuster is on a 500L, but essentially it lowers the headlight beams based on the vehicle load. The numbers basically relate to how many passengers are in the rear of the vehicle as this will affect how low the rear end is, and therefore make the headlight beams point further upwards.

The adjuster is usually somewhere near the steering wheel. Park on a flat surface with the headlights pointed at a wall, move the setting from 0 to 1 to 2 to 3 and you'll see the lights raise and lower. If it's just going to be the driver and front seat passenger, set it to 0 and all will be well.

Actually, it's not a 500L is it, it's just a 500? It's the + and - buttons on the right above the Menu button. When not in the menu, these adjust the headlight angle.

Yep, it's not saying anything's wrong, just that the angle has been adjusted
