Exclamation Possible Ice on road warning?

Morning,

Does the Panda have one? It was -1.5 deg this morning but I didn't get the Ice on road warning.

Perhaps I'm getting confused after years in Fiats & Alfas but I though it pinged up when the outside temperature drops to +3deg

Any thoughts?

Ta,

Simon

Re: Possible Ice on road warning?

I'd have thought it was model/year dependent.

My 2010 500 lounge has one, my 2010 Panda dynamic does not.

That said, you'd expect the car to be able to display an ice warning if it also had an outside temperature display.

Re: Possible Ice on road warning?

On my 500 sometimes I get the snowflake symbol on its own and sometimes it's with the message 'caution ice on road' . Not sure if there's a different temp threshold for both and iirc it beeps with message only

Re: Possible Ice on road warning?

My 63 plate 4x4 shouts at me with just display message. My 14 plate 1.2 did the same. I had a 65 plate 1.2, honestly can't remember if it did the same. As you have a '15 model year maybe the message removed from the later cars. Did you have a 2011 500 TA. It probably had it, hence you remember.

My 2017 4x4 has the possible ice on road message. But by the time I have got out the back door and down the path I think I have got the message anyway.

Re: Possible Ice on road warning?

If you go to Fiat's website and their car configurator, the outside temp warning is an option on many models now. A way of saving a few pennies on each vehicle. So if yours doesn't shout at you, it was not specified when new.

Re: Possible Ice on road warning?

Hi.
My 2014 Lounge doesn't have the outside temperature on the display so I'd suspect the ice warning isn't enabled either. Looks like there is not a lot of consistency in the lounge spec.

Talking Re: Possible Ice on road warning?

I have it on my 2015 punto easy it just comes up " possible ice on road" on dash a 3 degrees c but to be honest it's annoying, is there any way of turning it off ? and the seat belt buzzer as that must be the loudest one in automotive history.

Re: Possible Ice on road warning?

Mine has the ice warning but it's a scrolling 'banner' which if you don't notice it at the start then... Tough! There's no snowflake on mine.
