    Re: Automatic Door Locking (Auto Close), Active?

    HI All,
    I am new member of Team fiat. I own a Fiat GP Active 1.2 Fire. I am planning to fix central lock for my car, but dealer in chennai (both Concorde motors and Tafe reach) say that Fiat authorized centrol lock kit is having some technical problems and still being tested. Hence it is risky to fix it now. Anyone who fixed central lock for GP Active give a honest feed back ?
    Dealer says the cost of the kit is around Rs.9700/-

    I did not get into the details with the dealer, but he was mentioning that sometimes it does not auto lock on ignition and Fiat is trying to rectify it. Will ask the dealer for more details.

    In Active model, the CL will not autolock when ignition is switched on. That is normal behavior and already discussed somewhere in this thread. So, dont bother.

    Regarding Battery problem of Linea MJD

    Hi,

    My uncle has a linea 2010 model and he doesnt use it regularly. Last month the battery discharged completely and he got it charged from outside. however this has happened for 3 times till now. The car is in warranty.

    Any idea why the battery is discharging frequently?

    Fiat manual recommends dis-connecting battery connection, in case of long non-usage of the car.
    Checking battery with manufacturer (Exide) should also help.

    Any accessories installed after buying the car. Like CD Player, Amplifier, DVD Screen, Idols etc.
    After how many days is battery discharging completely.

    No aftermarket installables. The battery is discharging after 10-12 days. Is the battery faulty?
