    During this winter i too got these messages, But once after restarting the car the error message vanished . I too feel its because of weak battery and nothing else otherwise i would have got same message time and again even after restarting the car.

    Its obvious that at first engine start in the morning u get this message means there isn't sufficient supply of power to the electricals.. As everyone's suggested its the battery to look for get it replaced and error will not appear again..

    Hi Guys,

    How many of you have faced the clutched issue and replaced in Punto MJD? My Punto's clutch is stiffer day by day and it is sometimes difficult to change the gears as it is getting harder. Specially the reverse gear. sometimes i heard a sound "Craaaaaacccchhhhh" while put the reverse gear! My Punto done 38K and its 3yrs old one. Is it Normal or the clutch plate needs to be changed? Please advice guys...

    Don't think the plate..have it checked at a Tass. I had issues with csc that's all but mind u if any of the cylinders leak u might face such An issue what u described..

    My car got stalled post csc replacement.. there was a leak from master cylinder pipe and hence faced this gear hardness issue... post the leak was fixed issue was resolved..

    Kindly check with the tass asap for your clutch issue to avoid any further damage

  7. I think you need to try charging your battery once if things don't improve, ask for replacement.

    Do this .
    If you have a multimeter , just connect it to the terminals of the battery and crank the engine.
    Observe how much volt reading you get at the time of cranking. If its too low then you might have problems with battery only. ( You can do this at home itslef.)

    Secondly, if battery checks out fine then please take it to FASC ASAP as there really could be something wrong with ABS. I've seen numerous cases of rat bites and that actually ripping out the ABS connections althogether.
