    1. Keep the cabin clean and do not leave food stuff / crumbs inside the cabin.
    2. If rat menace is prevalent in your area, or the car is stand still for long, then, keep rat poison cakes (Martin Rat kill) inside the the hood or simply spray black pepper powder around and underneath the car.
    3. Use rat traps for catching them.

    1. I also faced the ABS warning when I was on a long drive (Chennai to Coimbatore). En route only I called up the service people. They advised to drive carefully and avoid sudden braking. When I tried sudden braking at high speeds without ABS I found that the rear wheels were getting locked. Any way, on reaching Coimbatore, Tafe people had rectified it in 30 minutes (sensor was disconnected it seems).
    2. Second time when it happened (Concorde Chennai), it was immediately after servicing - so I think it is some goof up during wheel balancing/ alignment. I fund it on the test drive itself and showed them. The sensor was changed. Still it did not go. Then they disconnected battery for ten minutes and reconnected. The resultant rebooting of ECU rectified the defect.

    Guys, for the fourth time :A (after 4 visits to service center for the same issue & replacing the sensor once), I'm facing the same issue of 'abs unavailable'. I got the issue en route to Alleppey from Trivandrum, yesterday night. The warning goes off once the car is started, and comes up as soon as I drive for around 1km. I'm literally frustrated with this issue and raised this complaint to FIAT road side assistance and customer care, who directed this complaint to Concorde motors, Cochin. The RSA people assured me that, there is nothing to worry and you can continue your journey. But I lost my confidence and had to cut down my speed. I'm not sure why this is happening only to my car. Guys, any insights on this? I'll keep you people informed of the progress.
