    Hi All,

    Recently from last month , I am observing "CAR PROTECTION SYSTEM FAILURE" warning light started flashing , intermittently. But it use to go off after single engine stop/start. From last couple of days it started staying permanently , & now it needs 2-3 stop/starts , before going off. This warning is not coming on MAR position. I have punto 1.3 FGT.

    "If with the engine running the warning lightflashes, this means that the car is not
    protected by the engine inhibitor device"

    This is i got from manual.

    Is this major issue & do i need to go FASS immediately.

    Amit, you have to go to FASS asap.

    But the primary suspect is on Battery, I guess.

    Rounding up the usual suspect - How old is the battery? Get the voltages checked firstly. When the battery health deteriorates, the electronics get a severe headache in these cars.

    Cheers.
