Smile Hi I'm another newbie

Hi, I joined this forum because my 19 year old daughter has just bought a 08 plate Punto Grande Eleganza with a semi-automatic gearbox. It has a few faults so I hope to get some help on here then I can set about sorting them out for her.
So far we have a horn that doesn't work, an airbag light on, the 'hill holder' doesn't work and the power steering needs checking.
Now I may be a bit dim but there is nowhere to check the power steering levels and fill accordingly - or at least I haven't found one!
Also what is the 'hill holder' - i assume this has to do with the semi-automatic gearbox?
We'll get there in the end!
PS where is the damn paint code on these?

Re: Hi I'm another newbie

Hi, Welcome to the FF.

Power steering is electric. so doesn't need any topping up.

Hill Holder is exactly what it says.... it holds the car on a hill. Explanation from page 92 of the owner's handbook below. If you don't have one, you can download the full handbook from the forum downloads section here: http://fiatforum.com/downloads.php?d...downloadid=162

You'll get a better response to the horn and airbag problem, and paint code location if you post in Grande Punto section of the forum here: http://fiatforum.com/grande-punto/
