    I guess this is media player related issue indirectly concerned to battery. I used to have this problem occasionally,But never appeared after I removed additional speaker connected to stock ICE.
    I sound weird I guess.

    It can be either the combination switch or a weak Battery.
    Its the Battery in majority of the cases.
    And Jayadev,yes you do sound weird on this topic.:)

    It should be battery I guess,more probably.

    I haven't changed my battery yet i.e 2.5+ year now, and voltage shows 11.2 volts on terminals.

    Since I have removed the additional speakers this message didnt show up yet,I dont know why. or those additional speakers were too much draining the battery.

    It happened for my car as well a year ago, it was the battery(3 years old) in my case , once replaced it disappeared.
  10. Hi fellow fiat lovers,

    My family owns a fiat from 1999 onwards and love the same
    Started with
    Fiat Uno Jubliee Diesel
    After an major collision upgraded to Fiat Palio Diesel (still owns it)
    Now we have a new fiat pinto diesel emotion

    My friend had a collision and both airbags came out.:(

    I have the car to an Carz branch. They changed the airbags + seatbelt (as it comes as a single unit)

    But after delivery of vehicle, I am getting an airbag failure on the dash display.

    I went to fiat original showroom and they have told me that the ECU needs to be replaced.

    I am little doubtful of ECU damage and I believe it is a software configuration visage.

    I don't have any other problems other than this error message I am getting regarding air bag.

    Since it cost me around 11k, and since surveyor has completed his formalities, I am skeptical about this expensive payout.

    Can any of the fellow fiat owners suggest me a good place in Hyderabad to get a second opinion about the same

    Thanks everyone for your help:):)

    I need a proper mechanic who can help me on same
