My Punto has suffered a strange issue. Its a 2.5 years old FIAT Emotion Pack and came with factory fitted central locking. Since the past 6 months, I started noticing a strange thing in my car. You guys know that the front doors are 3 stage doors, i.e. they open in 3 stages and the rear doors open in 2 stages. Whenever I would open the driver side door to come out of the car, and then close the driver side door, rest of the 3 door locks would make a very very faint noise when the driver side is being closed somewhere between the stage 3 and stage 2. One fine day a few weeks back, the driver side door lock would no longer work as a master lock, i.e. when the driver side door is MANUALLY locked or unlocked, rest of the three door locks would not lock/unlock themselves. This was a slight inconvenience as I would have to bend over and use the co-driver side door to allow others to get in my car. Plus, I can't retrieve my bags etc from the rear seat now as the doors would be locked. I had to unlock the rear doors by pressing the button on the key everytime. The central locking was working fine when locked/unlocked via the remote key and also the auto door locking above 20kmph was also working fine. I showed this to the TASC at the time of my vehicle's 45000Km service last week and the issue was fixed as per the technician. As soon as I left the service center, the issue magically came back. So common to face this situation where the issue either does not appear at the service center or comes back soon. Two days back, I visited the TASC again and showed the issue to the SA who attended my car during service. He called the same guy and showed the issue. The immediate response from the technician without even touching the car was that the wire of this car is cut near door hinge so call the electrician. Seeing the spontaneity of the response I don't know whether he knew this before and in case he did, why didn't they correct it the last time itself? Or maybe this issue has been reported before by others. Joshi Autozone is the best service center of this region. The service advisers and technicians are highly knowledgeable and professional in their approach. :up Anyways, the electrician opened the wiring near the door hinge and 2 wires were indeed found cut. I told them that I am uncomfortable with splicing of the wire and taping and would like to get a new set of wiring. But I found out that the whole wiring harness has to be replaced in that case. Attached below is a pic of the two cut wires. So, there are a total of 4 joints and two new blue wires (marked by red arrows). The joints have been taped properly as per the SA. Well on one hand, service centers void the warranty if any wire is cut during the installation of aftermarket music systems or central locking systems while on the other hand, a factory fitted wiring got damaged on it's own (because of frequent opening and closing of door) and is now having joints. Why void the warranty in case of cut wires then in other cases where people get the wires cut during electrical modifications if wire can be joined back in a case like mine? I do not want to be at risk because of these joints.
