    This supplement describes all the main char-acteristics of the Alfa TCT 6-speed dual clutchdry automatic transmission installed on thecar.

    In order to be able to use the transmissioncorrectly, this Supplement should be readcarefully and completely in order to under-stand the correct, permitted operations fromthe outset.

    For all other information, comply with theinstructions of the Owner Handbook.

    The gear lever has a button A, that must bepressed to move the lever to the positionsP or R (fig. 2 for right-hand drive versions).

    USING THETRANSMISSION

    INTRODUCTION

    The car is equipped with an electronically-managed Alfa TCT 6-speed automatic trans-mission where gearshifting takes place au-tomatically depending on the instantaneouscar usage parameters (vehicle speed, roadgradient and accelerator pedal position).

    The new transmission is an absolute inno-vation as it matches the Start&Stop systemwith the most recent alternative to tradi-tional automatic transmissions with built-intorque converter.

    Manual gearshifting can still occur thanks tothe sequential mode position of the gear lever.

    DISPLAY

    The display can show the following:

    in automatic driving mode, the speed se-lected (P, R, N or D), fig. 3; in sequential driving mode the manual en-gagement of a higher or lower gear, re-spectively, with the relevant number fig. 4.

    POSITIONS OF THE LEVER

    Parking (P)

    Position P corresponds to the neutral posi-tion of the transmission and locks drivewheels mechanically. It should only be en-gaged with the car stationary and the hand-brake should be applied, if necessary.

    With the ignition key in MAR or with enginerunning, or when the engine switches off,if the gear lever is not correctly positioned inP, the gear lever trim starts flashing next toletter P. In this case, position the lever cor-rectly in P.

    The ignition key can be removed only whenthe lever is in position P. Moving the leverfrom P to D must be performed only whenthe car is stationary and the engine atidling speed.

    Shifting from P to any other position of theselector lever, with ignition key in MAR po-sition, must be made pressing the brake ped-al and using the button on the gear lever (A-fig. 1).

    If the car is on a gradient, always pull the handbrakeBEFORE placing the brake

    lever in P.

    If the battery is flat, to releasethe lever you need to removethe gaiter and operate the

    lever A-fig. 5.

    Engage reverse only with thecar stationary, engine at idlingspeed and accelerator fully

    released.

    IMPORTANT Never leave the car beforehaving positioned the selector lever in P.

    Shifting from R to N or D is free, while shift-ing from R to P can only be made by thebutton on the gear lever, with engine atidling speed.

    Neutral (N)

    It corresponds to neutral for a standard,manual gearbox.

    The engine can be started with the lever inposition N.

    Engage N in case of prolonged stops.

    To move the lever from position N, releasethe accelerator and make sure the engine isstable at idling speed.

    Shifting from N to D is free, while shiftingfrom N to R or P can only be made by thebutton on the gear lever.

    Reverse (R)

    The engine cannot be started with the leverin position R.

    D (D automatic forward gear)

    It is the lever position in standard runningconditions.

    Shifting from D to N is free, while shifting fromD to R or P can only be made by the buttonon the gear lever.

    Sequential mode (+/)

    Shifting the lever from position D, to the left,to use the transmission in sequential mode,the lever is used in unstable position + or for up/downshifting.

    Summarising

    All movements of the gear lever must be per-formed with car stationary and engine idlingonly.

    The drive wheels are mechanically lockedin position P;

    Shifting from P R is possible withbrake pedal pressed and button on gearlever pressed;

    Shifting from R N is free; Shifting from N D is free; Shifting from D sequential mode isfree;

    Shifting from sequential mode D isfree;

    Shifting from D N is free; Shifting from N R is possible with but-ton on gear lever pressed;

    Shifting from R P is possible with but-ton on gear lever pressed.

    ENGINE STARTING

    The car is provided with an electronic enginelock device. In case of failed starting, referto the paragraph Alfa Romeo CODE sys-tem, chapter Getting to know your car,on the Owner Handbook to which this Sup-plement is attached.

    Starting is only permitted with gear leverin position P or N (with or without brake ped-al pressed). At starting, the system is in Nor P (the latter corresponds to transmissionneutral, but the cars wheels are mechani-cally locked).

    START&STOP SYSTEM

    With car at a standstill and Start&Stop sys-tem activated (see Owner Handbook towhich this Supplement is attached), the en-gine switches off if the gear lever is in aposition other than R.

    The Start&Stop system does not operatewhen the gear lever is in R, for making park-ing manoeuvres easier.

    In the event of stops uphills, the engineswitching off is disabled to activate the HILLHOLDER function, that works with runningengine only, as described in the chapter Get-ting to know your car, on the Owner Hand-book to which this Supplement is attached.

    The engine automatic restarting occurs if:

    the brake pedal is released and the leveris not in N or P;

    the lever is shifted to an unstable posi-tion, +, or R;

    the lever is moved from D to the left, se-quentially;

    by the levers + or on the steering wheel(for versions/markets where provided).

    During the car switching off and on, the sys-tem passes through the automatic engage-ment of neutral and the display shows N.

    IMPORTANT In some conditions (for ex-ample with reduced gradients and brake ped-al not fully pressed), the engine switchingoff is not deactivated. In this event, fully pressthe brake pedal to make the HILL HOLDERfunction available and restart the engine, us-ing the gear lever or the levers on the steer-ing wheel (for versions/markets wh
