I have a Stilo Active 1.6 and one of the lights on the heater control
panel has stopped working. I asked my local dealer to have a look at
the last service but they informed me that they don't know if it is a
blown bulb or if the light is integral to the heater panel requiring the
whole panel to be replaced. Apparently the spares information doesn't
list bulbs as a separate item.
Rather than have them remove and replace the panel (at vast expense),
does anyone out there know if the lights behind the heater control panel
are bulbs or are part of the panel?
This is a fairly common type of system on Fiats, and probably other makes as
The parts CD will never show much detail in this area (I've just looked)
The wiring diagrams often give the clues, but parts people don't look at
these. Also locating the light emitting devices can be a real problem.
I would spend some time investigating myself, especially if you intend to
keep the car for a while, as every problem investigated, even if you don't
personally solve it just adds to your knowledge of the car. The next
problem you encounter may well benfit form your previous
