    It's been only a week since i got my all new Italian Grey Hound ;), and i'm already getting the extremes of pleasure :p.
    Having been driving around in an Alto for close to 4 years, my current ride is a bliss, a positive extreme of pleasure :cool: i'd say.
    However, yesterday my ride wanted to surprise me on the negative side it seems. By evening when i was leaving from office i realized i couldn't play songs from my USB. The player was not detecting the USB at all. Then i realized my Blue and Me is not working. My Phone was getting connected but when on a call the speaker was not playing Audio. And to make things even more interesting, the KM reading on my multi-function display was blinking. I had no clues as to what has come up on to it. Immediately called up the technician from the Fiat workshop and he suggested i bring it to the workshop to check it the next day.

    The state was pretty much same even after i switched Off the engine waited for few minutes before i tried again and nothing had changed till i got home. No USB, No Blue & Me and KM reading blinking.
    Getting home, i checked in the manual :bookworm::bookworm::bookworm: but couldn't get anything related to it. After few hours, thought of checking my car again.
    Yippee... when i keyed in, the KM reading was stable, the USB was playing and Blue & Me was working again:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:.
    Now i'm wondering what had gotten into it, perhaps the heat :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:. There is no doubt in my mind regarding the ride quality, but my belief on the Electrical system is pretty much shaken up :shifty::shifty::shifty: now.
    Still contemplating if i have to visit the workshop though o_O.

    Go to the fass and check for error, if any, in the ecu. Most probably it will be a one off case.

    If odo reading is blinking and B&M is not working in that case remove and refit the terminals of B&M. If this doesnt work then you need to change the B&M kit.

    It is covered under standard warrenty.

    I had the same issue (KM blinking) while coming from a trip. But I just turn the key-off for 2 minutes and started again, no issue afterwards. Also whenever switching off the engine turn off the audio system, as some times it will not play automatically after starting the engine. Then we need to change the source then it will start play. Not sure any defect there. But I had that issue multiple times but then I used to turn off audio before engine off.

    @driveit there is option to make USB as standard source whenever you switch on. Check the My Car Setting and you will find the option.
