I have not yet needed to check, but does anybody know what kind of battery (s) the key fob takes and where can you get replacements?
You'd think the owners manual would give you that information since it does tell you how to access the battery. Let's not get into the vagueness of the owners manual.I think it's a 2032; get them at any general merchandise type store.
The chances of an adult human actually fitting in the trunk, and having the space to access the trunk release is slim.Just got a 2013 500C a last week and there is a yellow tag hanging out of the trunk door that I assume is the gettouta trunk thingy although I don't recall reading about it in the book that came with the car
First of all, no one should live or drive where the temperature is that low. Just my personal opinion and the reason I moved to South Florida. #2 the vehicle is warning you that even if the anti-freeze is new enough and at the proper concentration; it will likely not protect the coolant from freezing and damage to your engine is likely to occur.Had a new message on the display this week. It was -17 when I turned the car off. After it was off I had this message show up - "Engine Heater Recommended"
I've seen that happen. Completely ridiculous. Those Floridians. Just a few more years until I'm down thereFirst of all, no one should live or drive where the temperature is that low.

Generally speaking, a 50/50 mix Ethylene Glycol/Water SHOULD protect to -34F and an artic mix (Propylene Glycol/Water) 60/40 to -56F but it you expect those extreme temperatures you should check the coolant with a hydrometer available at Walmart or any auto parts. There are other factors that will be affected by the cold, the battery voltage will be lower and the capacity shorter, the oil viscosity will be thicker increasing drag etc.
Here in Florida, anything below 60F and the folks break out the Parkas and the Muck-lucks, mittens etc. (ridiculous)
Try adjusting your driver seat all the way to the highest position. I bet that the bloke who has to drive like that can fit in the trunk. Of course, they wouldn't actually be human. I'll give you that.The chances of an adult human actually fitting in the trunk, and having the space to access the trunk release is slim.
What kind of phone do you have? I am having trouble getting my POP to read my text messages aloud or even load the text messages into its memory.While my smartphone had Bluetooth enabled, a text message was received. Despite the radio being OFF, I noticed that the radio's LCD was still in operation, when the sunlight touched the screen at a certain angle. See attached photo.
While this is not a big deal, it was interesting to see that some radio features (perhaps others such as GPS, etc) remain engaged unbeknownst to the operator.
Since you're new you may not know but this is a better place and something of likely interest to you... http://www.fiat500owners.com/forum/51-fiat-500l/36153-things-you-didnt-know-about-your-500l-but-now-you-do.htmlOn the 500L the front qtr. and back qtr. windows are plexi? Just had a touch up for mine and when they took it off they found that out. Watch out not to scratch them!!
