    Hi,

    I have a Punto 1.2 Active petrol and have got a CNG kit done in it. I stay in Faridabad and met with a head on accident yesterday on my way to work. I got the dentig painting work done from a local guy and got the car back home on CNG. I noticed that the car would not ignite on petrol and the small display in the meter shows 'FPS On'. I have have tried searching about it but couldnt find anything. All i can read is that this is a Fire prevention systme which cuts the fuel supply in case of a collision and also that there is button somewhere in the car to reset it.

    Please help!

    I remember reading somewhere that the button is located under the dashboard on the left, somewhere near the pollen filter. Someone can confirm.

    Edit: It is explained in the owner's manual.

    The position has been explained in the manual, as given above by Fiatlover.
    I am just going through the manual so I remember it.

    But it is always better to check for internal damages to the supply line before resetting the switch.
    It is recommended to pay a visit to TASS and get the resetting done by them.
