    I guess the light comes mainly for Active and older dynamic models for rest of it it will be ABS or Airbag failure light displayed.

    Pls chk the battery with local vendor for its charge else check with FASS.

    It's battery problem. Get it changed ASAP. Glow Plugs die when they don't get full voltage to function if you don't change battery now all four glow plugs would die.
    I postponed battery change and it resulted in 2 glow plugs getting bad. While changing one plug came out cleany but other one broke inside head. This winter I would have to get the head opened for removing that plug. Been driving around with glow plug error flashing on MID from many months.

    When did you check battery fluid level last time by removing all top screws? It may need top up with distilled water. 50-60 kms daily run is more than sufficient to keep battery charging OK. For last four months, I am unable to run my Punto except on Sundays, but there is no such indication. My car is 17846 kms old.

    I was facing the same "lock" sign problem for last couple of days. when i checked the battery. Fluid levels were fine. but voltage was dropping when starting the car. Normally it was 11.27 but during ignition it dropped to 7.4. That was the issue .....

    replaced original exide battery (exacly after 4 yrs ) with Amaron 555 ( 55 Ah) with 2+2 yrs warranty in 4400/- ( with old battery)

    Starting time is reduced a lot!!!..
