    Can someone direct me to the right Amaron model for Linea TJet? Their website says Model no AAM-FL-545171036 is relevant to Linea while BatteryBhai says AAM-FL-545106036 (45 Ah). So which one is it?

    Linea is running on 50/55 ah I think by default so 45 is definitely out of the question. Either way pick up 55 or 60ah

    from HTC desire S with cynogenmod 7.2

    I think few Linea versions, specially petrols, are with 45ah batteries as OEM.
    But 55aH makes more sense to buy.

    Your battery may be dying and may last for a few more months/a few thousand kms. Here is the rough sequence before the battery dies completely
    -hot start problem-The car requires 2-4 cranks to start when engine/battery is hot. Multimeter/battery scanner will show that battery is charging fine, still you would need 2-3 cranks.
    -various error messages: ABS failure, air bag failure, and so on
    -blinking odo
    -display(MID) gets reset during ignition, sometimes display completely dies during ignition and takes a hew seconds to come back(you can still drive for a few hundred kms with battery in this condition)
    -Engine lock light come up during ignition. But the light goes off when you turn off and start the car again
    -Battery dies completely.

    Please don't ask me for the source of the above information. :)

    3-4 turns of the key / 3-4 attempts to start the car.

    Want to Share my Experience:

    I have a 1.4 Linea (Mfg: Sep 2009). I started getting the tell tale signs of a weak battery a few months back. This was intermittent where I would see the Airbag failure message, Engine Immobilizer Alert (Padlock). Last week I got another sign where the temperature display on the ACC would blink continously. I was not facing any problems with cranking the engine but learnt from this thread that I should not wait for that as a weak battery can damage to the alternator and also some electronics. I checked at the nearest Amaron Battery Dealer in Borivali West, Mumbai. Went for the 55 Ah Amaron Battery. The local shop was not willing to reduce the price below 5700 in exchange for the old 44 Ah Battery. (I think I could have saved a couple of hundreds using the online route but I didn't want to do the Indian bargaining trick of walking out and hope for the seller to reduce the price.)

    The blinking temperature figure on the ACC display was there even after the battery change. I then went to the Fiat Authorized Service Center in Kandivali West, Mumbai. The technician there connected the computer to the car and sorted out the problem. He mentioned that it was due to the old weak battery.
