    Prasanna,

    Thanks for this thread buddy. Your post was the inspiration for me to even think in these lines. As posted in my thread, I was and am waiting on those elusive MQS connectors to be delivered so I can complete the install and do a road test, post which I was going to post here.

    I also saw the stalk you have posted, but did not buy that for 2 reasons - firstly it is Punto specific, as it has rear wiper as well and secondly, it costs around 300 Euro. I was unwilling to bet that kind of money on an experimental project. When I started, I did not even have a clue if the Indian Version of the T-Jet even had the relevant code in the ECU.

    Thanks again,

    Rajan

    Prassana,

    If you are trying it on your punto do let post a complete write up of the same after it has been completed.

    Guys, what Prasanna posted was almost 2 years old. When I met him last week at my residence, I did inform him about Mr. Rajan's quest to install CC on his Linea T-jet and Prasanna was delighted with the news. He is awaiting the results as every other member on this forum. Once Mr. Rajan pens down all the details about the installation procedure, he might give it a try aswell.

    Guys,

    Before we all get carried away, wiring and activation of CC on the Punto is very different from the Linea. The success of my experiment does not automatically guarantee that it can be done on the GP (Indian Version) as well. We can always try and I will extend all support from my end for the experiment.

    Let us not forget this - The GP has far more advanced electronics as compared to any other FIAT - Linea, Punto MK2 or even Bravo/Brava.
